Intro: Competitor Rival II [Build]

The Competitor Rival V2, my most current knex gun I have made. This gun has a range of about forty feet and features a mag with a top on it, so you can finally have preloaded mags. I still have found a way to dodge broken pieces but I'm not sure how much longer I'll keep doing that. I realize that broken pieces make better designs easier, but to me, it seems like cheating. So I guess as long as I feel like I'm cheating  there won't be any broken pieces used by this guy.I know it took me awhile to get around to posting the Competitor Rival V2 but, I'm usually pretty busy with college stuff. If you want me to post instructions to something just send me a comment and I will see if I can get it posted.

Now as far as instructions for this gun, I decided to put all the pictures in one step instead of separtating them into groups and creating components. I think that you should still be able to put this together with no problems but just in case I added some image notes and I am always available for questions about assembly.

Step 1: The Gun

Follow the pic's and image notes

Step 2: The Clip

Just follow the pics, pretty straight forward.

Step 3: Finished!

Thought I'd leave this instructable showing my arsenal of all my previous hand guns. Looking back I've improved quite a bit for building my first knex gun last year. I hope you enjoy your Competitor Rival V2 and I'm always trying to improve so input is always welcome!

    Which one is better, the original Competitor or this one? (In terms of range, mag size, simplicity, piece count, etc.)

    Good question. If you really want to know, I liked the original competitor better. My competitor rivals have kinda been a testing ground for features I wanted to add to competitor. Competitor Rival 2 is cool because it features topped magazines and a friction mag lock.

    So an overview of what I just described (should have said this first): for performance, I would build the original competitor; for features and appearance I would build competitor rival II.

    Hope that helps.


    Well thanks! =D

    This site is a habit (addiction) of mine so I'm a regular around here. I'm usually on the site daily to answer questions and keep up to date on other peoples projects. I also appreciate questions like this because I know someone has considered making it.

    Just comment if you need anymore advice/help I'll get to it as soon as I can.

    Key: C =original competitor. R =competitor rival II

    Wow.... well again I kinda built this gun for concept of topped mags. I just never liked it as much as my prior competitors...weird.

    Just a little note for anyone who builds this, to use this the gun needs to be cocked before putting in the mag!
