Intro: Competitor Rival 107 Preview

Well another longer than expected project, but one I am very pleased to present to you today. Here is Competitor Rival 107! As you can tell by the name, I used dimensions of the AR pistol MK 107 which was displayed on the front cover of a gun magazine on my store. At first I thought the concept of an AR pistol was a real life version of an oxymoron, but after a while of reading and thought I liked the idea. As the magazine came down off the sales floor, I began building. This gun is finished and ready for k'nex war 2013 with a large white rod magazine, a flip up red dot sight, and a nice range of at least 40 feet. I love this gun and I hope you will too here is the stats that the majority of you will read.

Pros
Great range over 40ft.
Good looks in my opinion
New magazine with internal mag pusher and a easy load slide
Flip up red dot sight
Lots of tatical rail length
Trigger guard and a strong trigger mechanism

Cons
Barrel does not look the best. Built for function.
white rods act like blue rods. Some shoot well, others don't you know how that goes.
You tell me. Something I need to work on? Comment about it.

Thanks for viewing! Ible' coming before the contest ends so please vote for my entries: Rockem Sockem Robots, Zip, and Shift!

<Update> Some internal pictures or the gun and some band placement pics>

    Well it's not exactly a model, more of a utilitarian model. I'll make a more accurate model later after the knex war.

    Cool. It has nice looks, good range for white rods.
    The only thing, is that it doesn't look to comfortable to hold with your non-trigger hand, but I guess a front grip could be added.
    Also, I gotta say, you have an interesting building style

    First off thanks! I will be building the bottom rail to be compatible with Reds foregrip so that will solve that peoblem. Yeah, I never realised I had my own build style until darkowlknex told me. Even then I didn't belive it until I built this gun and thought that the five layer gun looked alittle boxy so I added my signature 7th layer detail and I do admit that's my style.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    You're welcome!
    The 7th layer isn't the only thing. IMO, a lot of connections that you make in your guns are interesting.
