Replicas? Answered

Ok, so I decided to dabble in the art of replicating recently. However, I dont really know what gun I should replicate.

What I know for sure:
  • I dont want to replicate a gun that has been done a million times, like an AK-47 or an M4 Carbine.
  • I dont want to do huge replicas that use too many parts
  • The guns I will replicate are not limited to just real life, I will also do guns from video games
  • No pistols. Most pistol replicas are just TDS copies with cosmetic mods.
  • Post a picture of whatever gun you think fits these requirements

I was considering doing either the Halo sniper rifle, or the FAMAS. If anyone else has a suggestion, Im open.

Ok, I thought the Beretta would be more suited to your lack of pieces.

It would use less parts, but the design seems awkward because of all its curves.

True, it may be a good design to fit a true BA mech into. I may try building it around my ZKAR bolt-action mod.

How about you read up on guns before you make your silly little comments.

No, a mortar is a weapon that fires the shells that are dropped in the muzzle.

You'd need to build a trigger that releases when the projectile slides down the barrel from the front and lands at the back.

Check this video, after about a minute.

I might want to try the longbow SR. the AR-4 series I am running has that name because I couldnt think of a decent original name. However, the AR-4 v2 operates exactly like you operate the one in the game.

I know how, but I dont have the right parts. This obviously needs ball joints, pulleys, parts that I dont have.

For my next gun, I was thinking either a Halo sniper rifle, or some non replica gun

Hey DJ, 98% of the teenage population would die if Twilight said breathing wasn't cool. Are you one of the 2% that would simply laugh your arse off? I know I am.
