Hello! I'm JonnyBGood! Today I built the new and improved Competitor. Well this is my first gun in a long while of inactivity, because I was playing around with different project ideas(other than guns) and have had little success so far. This gun was actually an escape from repetitive failure and started as a more rough gun. I saw a more sleek apearance in it though so I decided to see what it would lead me to. I started by taking off some excess pieces and made it thiner. I also thought I should put something on the top instead of leaving it flat, so I played with the idea of a tatical rail / flip-up  sights. Turned out looking pretty awesome and a little like the Arsenal Shipka sub machine gun. Overall I am very very happy with how this turned out, and I think the stats tell why.

Still no broken pieces
Range: easily 40-45ft depending on the bands
Good looks
Smooth handle
Flip up sights
Trigger guard
Mag locks in
to gun

Trigger mech can break if to much elastic is added

(Other than that I can't complain!)

So tell me what you like / dislike about this gun and I will try to take it into consideration for my next one.

    Hey man. Well, the Competitor is getting better and better, but there are just a few things that might be edited with advantage. The first thing I noticed was the trigger guard, it is at a weird angle, and it is kinda ugly. All I suggest you do with it is to take it off, as it really adds nothing to the gun itself. Second of don't have a back sight. XD Sights are no good unless you have something to line them up with. XD

    I was wondering if you have seen some of my more recent turnouts, if not, I suggest you go look at them...tell me what you think. (See pic below) I have been contemplating a mag holding gun that has the ability to charge one mag, while one or two mags are ready for action. What are your thoughts on the pic below?

    Well thanks for the suggestion. I'll try to make sure the trigger guard isn't so angled next time. I did already add rear sights because they helped my aim... alot. Those will be in the build instructable which is taking a little longer than I wanted.
    Anyway about your recent guns, they've been very good looking. I really liked how the civilian scar turned out.......{pick jaw off floor} .......Epic.
    Your new idea is pretty cool as well, not many guns have extra mag cases. It reminds me a little like a nerf gun except ussually the extra mags are stored in the stock, but of course the nerf guns I'm thinking of are rifles.
    Overall I would try this idea because it looks new and unique. I may try at it myself if you don't mind.

    Yup, no problem bro. Like I said, the trigger guard is not a BIG deal, but if you edit it, it might improve the looks. As to your comment about my recent guns, thanks...I try hard.

    Well, that new idea worked out great, and I hardly had to do ANY modding. I am posting it now. Yeah, go ahead and try that concept, I don't have it copyrighted. XD
