GUNGOAT RUST/GUNNIT RUST IS A GUN BUILDING CONTEST! YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO BUILD AND SUBMIT YOUR OWN HANDIWORK. WE ALLOW PNEUMATIC GUNS BECAUSE OF OPPRESSIVE REGIONS. THERE ARE DIFFERENT TIERS FOR DIFFERENT PROJECTS. THIS HAPPENS TWICE A YEAR. THIS NEXT CONTEST DATE IS September 23. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ASK THEM! OTHERWISE, SEE YOU ON SEPTEMBER 23rd.
I like to keep the rules and tiers minimal for maximum creativity
No breaking the law
Pneumatic guns allowed because of laws.
.25acp energy is more or less the bottom goal but not super enforced.
Submit on the contest date titles "Gunnit Rust: Title Goes Here" So I can find it easily and link it to the official contest thread in a comment.
Tier I Built Gun(or Suppressor) Basically, you build a gun from non-gun components. We have allowed commercial gun springs and barrels(or Barrel Liners) for safety but if you have the skills, doing your own is mad props. The rules are pretty arbitrary and you can convert pellet guns, toys, or flare guns etc. Note that I have included suppressors in this tier assuming you form your own baffles.
Tier II complete built receivers, uppers, and 80% receivers with commercial parts This is where all the 80% receivers, re welds, and parts kits on built or substantially modified receivers would go. Again a winner by Karma and I encourage people to favor the guys doing more work. Note the change for built upper. By built upper I mean you made an upper from sheet metal plates and an MP5 forend or something. It is substantially more then Tier III so I added built upper receiver and obviously your M11/9 or AR-15 can be the base receiver now
Tier III Assembled Gun More commercial parts allowed . Parts kits turn into guns here. You'll note that this is where the AR-15 assemblies went. Obviously the 10/22 that won the category for Summer Rust 2015 had the advantage of not being just another AR.
Tier IV Trusty Rusty Tier Best resurrection of a dead, neglected gat. If your region frowns upon gun building maybe you can play too be turning a rusty hung of broken down garbage into something function and ready to again be loved.
Tier V Modified Guns Fat kid just want to play too? Did you glue a rail to your 1911? Bless your heart. We actually had a .460 Rowland Glock conversion do very well in Summer Rust 2015 Personally I'd like to see some handmade wood furniture dress ups.
Tier VI Gun Related This is new and frankly I want the projects to be of some quality...So by related I mean A range of things like your workshop, your home range, your handmade range bag, display cases, custom safes, car mounted gun Vaults, or something else actually worthy of a post OR we'll sick the Heathers on you. So the upper V are guns and this one is gun accessories.
