Since the trigger broke about a year ago, I never used my RF20 until I decided to relocate the grip. This will now be my new primary, just as soon as I make more stefans (I seem to have misplaced all of them). Any comments on it are welcome. Eventually it will be painted translucent blue to match my AT3K, so don't bother telling me to give it a new color.

Cosmetically bad or cosmetically good? And resize those pics.

I would, but when I was about to do the same for a trigger release photo when it turns out my photo editer is uninstalled, and I don't have the disk, so it may take awhile.

Use paint, and "stretch/skew". It's what I do, it takes about... 20 seconds if you're fast.

Interesting mod, but I think you might be able to route some of the tubing though the handle so it's less tubing coming out all over the place. And yes THIRST, this is coming from me.

I like it. Although the front handle is kind of odd.. Other than that, excellent job.

I dont get it, is this some sort of inside joke? Ahhhhhh.
Generalprime, Im so sorry, and it doesnt say a lot coming from me...but that may just be the ugliest nerf gun I have ever laid my eyes on. First time I glanced at it I thought the pic was upside down.

THIRST, you kept complaining of all my external tubing, and I said I didn't give a damn. Remember? And I'm sure the gun will look better once painted. He did a good job, considering there's really not much room to route tubing in that gun.

I once saw an old lady slip and fall on a sidewalk and i laughed. Then i thought, what if i was an ant and she fell on me. Then it didn't seem quite so funny.

No i was talking about the weird brass wire sticking out the top in a "V" shape. I think it is to make it so it can be a turret or something, but personally i dont like it very much.

So the picture is upsidedown? Then that is one weird handle. It would be really awkward to hold because it is spread open like that. Not to mention you would have to fire with your pinky finger because the trigger is located on the bottom of the main handle. I think that gun is just all together messed up.

Have you heard of a hand-held gatlling gun? Think of it like that. And people, stop dissing the guys' gun if you don't know what it's supposed to represent.

That's what it is. And I think he did a decent job of it- only the barrels are too short, but that can't be helped.

Read. He was going to. I guess he didn't know he could use paint. HE KNOW'S IT'S TOO BIG! Comment on the gun please.

General, you could probably make it look more realistic by taking like 4-5 PETG tubes, each about 6 inches or longer, and group them together and put them on the inside of the turret. You know, the center part. OR, take like 8 pieces and put them around the outside, although I'm not even sure the RF20 would fire far enough so that the darts wouldn't hit the tubes :mellow: .

C'mon, we already talked about that...he modeled it after a machine gun where you hold the front handle with your hands grasping vertically.

He means the resized pic that I posted, not the one in the first post. It didn't change at all.

Uhhh....yeah, this definately brought on confusion. If you read the little part after the comma on the title of the topic, you will notice that I said it now looks like an XM-214 , which was the army's smallest (.223 Rem) version of the Vulcan gun. It is meant to be hand-held, but the recoil (270 lbs. at 10,000 rpm) quickly did away with that idea. Since it was my favorite version of the GE gats, I decided to make my RF20 look similar to one. Ompa, thanks for getting things cleared up while I was asleep. I am in the midst of giving this gun longer barrels, but they will be 4" max. I like the idea of false barrels, just to make the gun look better. I currently will be trying to get it to hold pressure, because for some reason when I used it today it got a small hole blown in the bladder :blink: . I still don't get how that happened.
