Introduction: Arch_Angel's Sniper Rifle

Picture of Arch_Angel's Sniper Rifle

this is my sniper rifle I have made that combines the power of this guys firing pin and trigger system with the more accurate barrels of regular guns.
It was originally going to be modeled after the H&K mp5 but when i couldn't get a bottom feed magazine to work, I turned it into a sniper.

Step 1: Bulding the Stock and Handle

Picture of Bulding the Stock and Handle

I decided to make this gun as sturdy as possible for the parts i had, some of the extras aren't needed but help in the performance of the gun.

First you will need to build the stock
1. build 3 of these
2. attach together like so (not pictured: attach three gray rods
to the white connectors so they are opposite the red connectors,
attach a dark gray connector to the middle rod)
3. build this, and attach the side with three green connectors
to the slot above the gray rods.
4. finished stock.
5. build 2 of these, and attach together with a white rod
and a dark gray connector as a spacer. ( i would take more pictures but all
I have is a camera phone and it's starting to get costly sending the pics to my email
6. attach handle to stock
7. finished stock/handle

Step 2: Trigger System

Picture of Trigger System

next up is the trigger made by ricky0207, to save on cost of text pics, im going to use a couple of his images, ricky, if you don't like me using your images then leave a comment and ill take them off.

1.this is the top of the trigger, and the piece that
holds the firing pin till you pull the trigger this but you add a few pieces to it (see picture)
3. attach to handle

now take the top trigger and attach it with rubber bands to the bottom, see ricky's instructable for more details on this part.

Step 3: Front Handle

you may be able to use rickys original design for a handle, but I didn't like the feel of his handel so i built this sturdier one.

1. build 2 of these 1 of these
3/4. attach together like so
5.attach to rest of gun, (theres really not to much left now)
6. make these
7. attach to end of handle like this.

Step 4: Barrel/bipod

Picture of Barrel/bipod

i designed the barrel to also be a bipod, at this point i was running out of parts so i just used two red bars as the bipod,I'm sure if someone wants to they could build a better one for this setup. but it serves it's purpose.

1attach as many red connectors as will fit on a gray rod,
using the middle slot of the connector, then attach 2
red rods on one of the ends of the barrel.
2. attach to gun.
3. build firing pin

Step 5: Firing

Picture of Firing

here are some pictures of the gun after being fired and cocked back.

to fire simple pull back the firing pin till it locks into place, add projectile to front, and pull trigger.
my first instructable is officially in just 1 hour.

i_like_stuff (author)2008-07-24

can u tell me if it good cause cant be bothered wasting time

refuel45 (author)2008-02-17

im sorry.... but this gun performs like well... im sory to say but the worst gun ive ever made, i must have done something wrong, along the way but , maybe like 5 feet with 5 bands like the design, o and by the way the firing pin orange peice comes off every time

Oompa-Loompa (author)refuel452008-07-18

Put a Y connector on the end of the pin before the orange piece and that stops.

Vendigroth (author)2007-04-20

what range do you get? Furthermore, how easy to break is it? does it shake itself apart every time you shoot?

arch_angel07 (author)Vendigroth2007-04-20

probably around 30 ft, it's pretty sturdy, the only part that will come apart will be the firing pin, will shoot out the barrel after around 200 shots, just switching the yellow part will fix that, also one of the walls of my room is one of these, and its powerful enough to shoot straight through it.

kennyboy 2 (author)arch_angel072008-03-20

dude you forgot some instructions either that or my computers messed

Stavroz (author)2008-02-05

OK ive got a problem, the bullet that i use doesnt come stairght out of the barrel it twists and roles and misses target plz give a tip ps i use yellow rod as bullet

Stavroz (author)2008-02-03

I build the gun today lol it took me 3 hours to build and 5 hours to gain information.. but the result is great! The gun is perfectly working. thnx arch angel.

Stavroz (author)2008-02-02

OK your pics could have done better, but.... IT LOOKS SO AWESOME!!! its a really nice design. Gonna try it tomorrow.. (if have some time, otherwise i will make some time) gj rating +2 if that is possible...

ultimatesx9 (author)2007-12-19

you could of bluetoothed them you know would of saved you a lot of money

arch_angel07 (author)ultimatesx92007-12-27

are you sure this is the instructable you meant to comment on?

ultimatesx9 (author)arch_angel072007-12-27

Yeah, the guys was sending the pictures from his phone to his email account, and that costs you to do that. but if you bluetooth them, its free!! but you need a bluetooth phone and a bluetooth adapter for you pc

justinflamer (author)2007-12-16

I made a semi-good mod for this. it takes away the flaws in the trigger system (top thing flying out of whack.) it adds power, too. the only problem is that the firing ping grey rod falls off of the yellow. (just have to superglue the firing pin together) I'll post pics as soon as i get my cam some new batteries.

great id love to see some pics

lamlnguyen (author)2007-10-19

I tried to do that, but I had to rearrange some parts to make mine work.

Jjackw (author)2007-10-05

Hi, this is a really cool gun but I was just having a problem with making it. On the 4th step I don't know what to attach the end of the barrel onto. Thanks.

arch_angel07 (author)Jjackw2007-10-06

it goes into the middle of the three white circle pieces on the end of the gun

Grim sniper (author)2007-09-20

how far dose it shoot

arch_angel07 (author)Grim sniper2007-09-22

the best I ever got on a day without wind was 50 feet.

arch_angel07 (author)2007-04-26

yah sorry about that, im planning to re upload some pics but i have to rebuild the gun first

gunmanx (author)arch_angel072007-09-09

yea i got it figured out now i built it and it went pretty far with just 2 rubber bands and i modded it also ill probly post som piks

gunmanx (author)arch_angel072007-09-09

and when is that liek in 30000000m years

arch_angel07 (author)gunmanx2007-09-09

i took the gun apart, this won't be updated again, unless someone posts a really good mod I might put it on.

Dontknowmuch (author)2007-09-03

ive made mods to it i change barrel im working on sturdy stock and handle and my trigger isnt working

ill try and get a new pic as soon as i find the gun : ), the stock wasn't meant to be much, since the back end was deigned off the mp5, that part was built more for looks than function, post a pick of your trigger mechanism and ill try to help.

Dontknowmuch (author)2007-09-03

great gun i just finished, but the stock is a bit weak along with the handle

Dontknowmuch (author)2007-09-03

the third pic is hard to see can u get a closer pic?

pates1 (author)2007-08-02

i made it and it didnt work.. you didnt give a good way to load it.(no makeing fun of)

arch_angel07 (author)pates12007-08-02

uhh you load it by stinking a knex piece in the barrel. unless you talking about cocking the gun, then yes the whole trigger system could use some improvement.

pates1 (author)arch_angel072007-08-02

yes that what im talkin bout... i dont know how the trigger works.(i took it apart thoe a while back)

chaostheory (author)2007-07-31

I made it and it was okay (looked wicked too!) but i had a lot of problems w/ it but still a good gun.

bruce911 (author)2007-07-30

try and find a different type of trigger then i will like it. the trigger you have right now cannot support the enormouse rubberband loads that i like using.

Trigun78 (author)2007-06-14

Ok,im having troubles...the arrel comes off along with the stand.Also when i pull the pin back it locks in but then it moves up and messes up.The trigger pushes it up more,but doesnt shoot

arch_angel07 (author)Trigun782007-06-14

the barrel part if I think i understand you is soposed to happen, if you dont want the stand on it then take the 2 red bars off the barrel, the barrel is designed to be removable to put it back on just slide it over the firing pin, like a sheath and a knife, then twist it to lock it in, and could you post a picture of the firing part of you gun so i could see whats wrong.

stickylaffytaffy321 (author)2007-06-06

need betta picks. very good gun

i actually just rebuilt the gun so i may retake the pics as soon as i get some time

killerAP (author)2007-04-27

man, the fireing barrel sucks. the pin gets jammed half way there

arch_angel07 (author)killerAP2007-05-01

never happened for me. im guessing you mean the blue bar its a white piece? if so try removing it . instead of saying it sucks why not saying whats happening so i can help you fix it.

killerAP (author)arch_angel072007-05-14

the bar hits the side and also cant get the trigger to work. I dismantled it for better guns

arch_angel07 (author)killerAP2007-05-28

you could have just taken that bar, and set its end in so it's verticle instead of horizontal. not sure about the trigger but you took it apart so it dosent matter much anyway.

killerAP (author)arch_angel072007-05-30

lol. O well

chunkymuggen (author)2007-05-28

ur pictures SUCK. get new ones

thanks for your helpful comment, their knex guns, the world won't end if my pictures aren't the greatest.

tubanator-2.0 (author)2007-05-11
