OodAst Update 3.5 *Further updated to 3.6* Answered

Well I still didn't feel up to making an entirely new weapon so I tried improving the oodast...again. The main concern with everyone last time was reliability so I fixed that. It's a lot more reliable. I'll spare you the rest of the details until the movie so just watch it.


For those who don't want to or can't want watch the video for some reason here's what I did. I changed it to a yellow rod magazine. Tan was alright but really big compared to the rest of the pistol and it left a lot of room for reliability errors. Blue is simply too small for my tastes. This is a nice average. I changed the mag pusher a little so that an extra part extends around the guide rod and it helps keep the pin locked more securely using a "weaker" connection to keep it compact. The magazine was actually moved forward a bit. I'm not sure how much of an increase to range this gave but I guess every few inches can make a difference. The mag "tilter" is now a straight pull back mechansim instead of a push up. I find this a little more comfortable.
I also made another minor mod that stills somewhat nice is that I finally made a new safety to work with the version 3 series entirely. It's pretty simple. There's a black hand and a blue cap on the trigger guard bottom facing in opposite directions (don't get in the way of your fingers at all) and when the gun is cocked you can turn the trigger guard so that the blue cap fits in between one of the gaps on the trigger. The black hand provides a fast way to turn off safety by just pushing it back from underneath the guard to the side again. It doesn't get in the way of the tilter slide so you can load the gun while it's cocked without shooting yourself in the face.
Sorry no pictures yet. The video should suffice until I get home from school.

Well? Get posting, young one!

I'll be posting as soon as I get the chance... Hopefully that might be tomorrow. I'm not sure though. With Christmas coming I'm sure this will be very overlooked by other projects. At the same time, by releasing it too early it may be quickly replaced by the other Christmas releases so I may save it until a few days after Christmas.

Cool! And yes, I would wait until after Christmas. It might get overlooked.

I wouldn't worry about his gun getting overlooked, he does have quite a few subscribers to the point where that wouldn't be a problem.

Me being one of them, I agree.

hmm maybe. KL might do us a favor by doing a mass review of oodammo pistols. If that happens and the OodAst3.6 does well then maybe more people will consider it.

I'll get to it! Two days after Christmas should be enough time to let the hype for everything else die down right? I just need time to use the camcorder or to find my SD card and adapter.

I don't know. Do well, Oodassault!

I wouldn't worry about your gun getting overlooked, you do have quite a few subscribers to the point where that wouldn't be a problem.

instead of "young one," You was supposed to say "son!"

WHOOOO!

TWO INVITATIONS!

Alright I'll be posting sometime within the next couple hours. I just gotta let the camera charge long enough to take the photos and upload them.

Hmm... Made it, and I can't get the mag pusher to work right. Oh well.

same here...

Did you see where the rubber bands are placed? Or did you noticed that it's made completely out of connectors so that it doesn't catch on the magazine? Otherwise you'll just have to wait til I post.

No, I have the same band placement, but I'm not quite getting how it locks down. Oh well, I'll keep messing with it.

just builded it and its great

Can you P0$T? 

I will subscribe, fave, and rate 5*!

PLEASE!

I was asking Dunkis, and it's not all that hard, either. If you take a few minutes and think it through, I'm sure you could make it.

I know, I was just saying I would appreciate it if you did.

Looks very nice. I'll make sometime soon.

Oh, and what kind of tape is that?

lol I'm not a tape person. I think it's electric? Yeah that seems right. Anyways it's plastic-feely on the outside.

Ok, I kinda thought so. Although, I think it's vinyl on the outside of E-tape. Don't hold me to that though. =P

"Geez that almost hit me in the face!"
LOL. Anywho, on the last shot, did 2 fire? It sorta looked like it.

I shot a wall with the ZKAR v2 and it hit me in the neck.

LOL. I don't shoot walls. Because of that, and I don't want to put dents in them.

I shot a wall with Mepain's shotgun pistol, and it has 4 barely-visible dents in it.  This was at 5 feet.

Yep.
Although I had a bit of a problem with it. On mine, the bottom-left shot never goes more than 12 feet. The other 3 go like 40 though. Odd.

Same here.  Oh and the top right shot (my right when I point it at something) sometimes falls out of the gun.
