    *^* January/2016 MOTM Contest *^*

    Link to the previous winners thread: http://www.automags.org/forums/showt...-*-New-Version

    TWO DIVISION MOTM Thanks to Tom Kaye and the enduring overseeing AO Mod staff for keeping this thread in order and running smoothly.

    MOTM will run 2 categories: Standard Open Class anything goes and an "Old Skool" Mag competition ! !

    Please state which division you want to be in (Open or Classic) in case yours could go either way.


    Round 01'16 ! !

    Entries up until 01/31/16 11:59 PM EST

    "MAG" of the month contest...that means MAGS of any kind.

    I want to see some kick butt Mags ! ! !

    I will do it every month there seems to be continued interest , voting towards the end of each month, new contest on the first-ish of each month.

    Near the end of the month I will narrow it down to a Final 3 (or how ever many I think are worthy) and open a public voting poll to pick the winner for each division. Entries are valid until I close this thread.


    Rules:

    1) Must be your Mag and NOT for sale during the month of the contest.

    2) I don't care how great or sucky your pictures are, it's a gun contest not a photogenic prize. Please NO watermarks.

    3) 2 pictures MAX , NO GIANT WALLPAPER sized pictures....post a link if you need to or link to any larger pics.

    [a] FYI , It is to YOUR ADVANTAGE to simply post 1024 x 768 or so sized pictures , they will look far better than the code resized pictures. [/b] - New size rule for updated picture resolution

    4) One gun entered per month per Class. I'll allow you to enter one (different) marker in each.

    5) No previous contest winner entries unless it has changed drastically , give others a shot please.

    6) No text posts ...PM all questions to who ever you want to ask what ever you want to ask. Text posts will be removed.


    I will be judging on what I think is cool or worthy ...

    Generally it breaks down like this-

    Open Class MOTM :

    As in anything goes as long as it's a mag , wow us.

    Just a note ,

    I'd really like to see full functioning markers , those will get priority over the same parts just stacked up for a picture.


    OldSkoolers :

    Looking for anything falling under the guise of Old Skool or in the Spirit of Old skool , SS parts would be cool but that's fairly subjective depending on application. Could be rare , unique or just plain old and still neat. Rusty in a box not exactly the idea here So basically anything that cries yesteryear whether a Classic Custom or just Classic Cool.

    Further example:

    ule body (made of aluminum)= not old skool (unless it is so hidden in old skool goodness that I can't tell)
    newly produced frames (Vert and aftermarket ones, mostly)= not old skool (unless it is so hidden in old skool goodness that I can't tell)
    rt, emag, x valve = not old skool (unless it is so hidden in old skool goodness that I can't tell)
    electro and pneu frames will be posted on the OPEN Class poll, regardless of the rest of the marker's components
    nasty Mags will be posted on the OPEN Class poll, regardless of the rest of the marker's components

    Classic please.

    I actually put this together as an example of the Old School like the 'Mags I used to see on the field over 20 years ago, right down to the brass fittings. This particular 'Mag was bought by a good friend in 1992. He gave it to me for safe keeping since he knows I'll treasure it. Serial number in the low 6000 range.

    Sorry for the delay in assembling the polls this month. I'm traveling for attending a conference so I have been super-busy and, at the same time, the internet connection in this hotel is the worst I've ever seen. I'll do my best to assemble it this week but, if for any reason I can't, I'll do it at the very beginning of the next week, at the latest. As I usually allow 10 days for people to vote, we should be fine in defining the winners still within this month. Sorry for the incovenience guys.

    Alpha_q_up23, you enterered your Mags after January 31st so they are out but please re-enter them for February when I assemble the new thread, ok?

    Here it shows 01-02-2016 - 1:58 AM.

    OK, considering you are on the west coast, lets include it then. Thanks for clarifying.

    Yes, and, it makes the most satisfying PING when you shoot it. Almost sounds like ejecting brass. It's heavy, but the weight actually gives it a nice balance against the weight of the tank. If you look closer at post #6, that looks like an aluminum or stainless (or chrome?) version but hard to tell.

    I see them pop up from time to time. I've seen 'Cocker ones. I have a vague memory of having a straight rifled stainless one on a Pro-Lite that I sold with F/A #99. If you get a twist lock one, there's so much meat there (without measuring) I think you could thread one for a cocker.
