Introduction: DSMAN1'S SHOTGUN/SNIPER

this gun truly is a step ahead of most knex gun on the site. with the abilty to be a sniper (long range combat) and a shotgun( for short range combat)you can take down almost any opponent( with the exception of the sr-v1 of corse!). the ammo i have right now is:

sniper round

shotgun round

and the immportant deer slug

the credit for the bipod for the sniper goes to KillerK(took it from his sr-v1)
credit for the handle and trigger system(though i moded it) goes to the_ burrto _master.

big edit!!!!!!:

i have changed the gun a lot. now trigger system that uses the hammer on the back to cock the gun. and a popout banneut(sorry about spelling)also i made it so the sides of the gun hold 6 deer slugs. aslo i put a grip on the gun and the trigger for the banneut is right by the grip. instructions are being made hurray!!


please note that the only reason my instructable is full copyright is because i dont want people to plagerise this instructable! feel free to make the gun! and a better but

Step 1: Barrel

this is the longest part. it also uses up most of the yellow connectors you need for the gun. so make this part first because if you cant make this then there is no reason to make the rest of the gun.

pic 1: make 17. make sure to make one like pic 2 and 3.

Step 2: Trigger System

just follow the pics.

Step 3: Butt of the Gun

look at pics

in pic three notice the connection points.

Step 4: Bipod for Sniper Verson

same as the sr-v1. go look there.

Step 5: Loading and Fireing

follow the pics.

in the shotgun ammo, you put lots of blue rods in the barrel with the round.

Step 6: Have Fun

have fun with your new shotgun! dont shoot at anything that could tell the popo! dont forget to rate! please leave comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sorry i never told you sooner. i redid the entire gun here, but kept the barrel mostly the same. you should make that version since it has a better trigger and everything else and does not use any of the hinges.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)2009-05-27

sorry about the confusion. you need to make 17 of the part as a whole, and 3 more of just the top of it(the part with the orange connector). you will notice that in the picture, there are three parts on the barrel with different bottoms.

I thought this was the rifle

well, kinda. the rifle is mostly a modded version is this gun, and it has it's own instructable.

Sorry, but this gun really isn't innovative. It does the exact same thing that the sr-v1 does, and it has the same trigger as the_burrito_master's crossbow. Innovation, would be something new that works well.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-01-31

1. so the sr-v1 is compleaty different. 2. i said that in the intro.

author
bakenbitz made it! (author)bakenbitz2008-01-31

The sr-v1 is not completely different, it uses a slingshot system as does this one. That seems pretty similar if you ask me.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-01-31

this uses more of a crossbow type thing. and they look nothing alike. also the slingshot system has ben used many times before the sr-v1.

author
bakenbitz made it! (author)bakenbitz2008-01-31

I never said they looked alike and this cant be more of a "crossbow type thing" because there are no limbs. All this gun is, is an extended version of he_burrito_master's crossbow.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-01-31

IN A SLING SHOT THE BULLET IS ATACHED TO THE RUBBERBAND AND IS HELD BACK BY YOUR HAND. IN A CROSSBOW THE RUBBERBAND WOULD BE HELD BACK BY YOUR HAND AND SHOOT THE BULLET WHEN YOU LET GO OF THE RUBBERBAND. THEY ARE COMPLETY DIFFERENT!!!

author
bakenbitz made it! (author)bakenbitz2008-01-31

I never said it was a "slingshot", but a slingshot mechanism, which it is. A slingshot mechanism is when the bullet is launched directly from the rubber band, there is no ramrod or hammer.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-02-01

no it is not. it is a crossbow mec. there is a difference!

author
bakenbitz made it! (author)bakenbitz2008-02-01

No there isn't, they are the same, each holds back a rubber band and releases it when its fired.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-02-01

in a slingshot the bullet is held back in the trigger system and the rubberband is attached to the bullet.

in a crossbow the rubberband is held back in the trigger system and the bullet is in the barrel SEPARATE FROM THE RUBBERBAND

that is how they are different.

author
bakenbitz made it! (author)bakenbitz2008-02-01

The bullet is not attached to the rubber band in a slingshot system, look at the sr-v1, the bullet sits in front of the rubber band, it's not connected.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-06-03

you must have not made the SR-V1 because thats not how it is loaded. i thought that to before i made it. search "how to load the SR-V1" and you will find a instructable on it. the rubber band is hooked up to the bullet.

author
oldsmobilefreak made it! (author)oldsmobilefreak2008-02-01

leave dsman1 alone the SR-v1 is totally different idiot

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-01-31

o my gosh. i know! what ever. i will get rid of the line that says it is knex innovation.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-01-31

also i think this is knex innovation because it can be a sniper and a shotgun and has a new type of ammo.

author
bakenbitz made it! (author)bakenbitz2008-01-31

I don't see how a shotgun can turn into a sniper by using a bi-pod. The gun isn't a shotgun anyway, its not pump action and that bullet only spreads once it hits the target.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-01-31

OK LOOK. NOT ALL SHOT GUNS HAVE PUMPS. THE FIRST SHOT GUN DID NOT HAVE A PUMP. IF YOU ACTULY LOOKED AT THE LOADING STEP YOU WOULD SEE THAT THE GUN GETS LOADED WITH A LOT OF BLUE RODS ALONG WITH THE ROUND. ALSO IT IS A SNIPER BECAUSE USING THE SNIPER ROUND YOU CAN GET REALLY GOOD AME AND RANGE. THE BIPOD ONLY HELPS WITH GIVING IT ACCUREY!!!

author
bakenbitz made it! (author)bakenbitz2008-01-31

I understand that not all shotguns have a pump, but you shouldn't say your gun is a shotgun, because it isn't. What you should say is, you can load this gun like a shotgun. That also makes it no different from other knex "shotguns". And did you really think using caps lock would help you win this argument?

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-02-01

haha. the defenition of shot gun is this: a gun that uses the explosion of the gun powder( would be the ram rod in knex) to fire lots of ammo called shot. so teckenly this would be more like a shotgun if you filled the barrel with bbs.

author
bakenbitz made it! (author)bakenbitz2008-02-01

I like the fact that you make up your own definitions. A shotgun is only loaded with one bullet, called a shell. The shell is filled with BBs. Your gun would be more like a shotgun if you design a shell that held small pieces.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-02-02

i will work on that design.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-02-01

no i did not think using caps would help me win. so what you are saying is that the first shotgun was not a shot gun and just was loaded like a shotgun?

author
bakenbitz made it! (author)bakenbitz2008-02-01

No I never said that either, I said your gun is just loaded like a shotgun. Stop making up garbage, you know your wrong.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-02-01

no i am not wrong.

author
oldsmobilefreak made it! (author)oldsmobilefreak2008-01-31

how far does it shoot approximately and is it good for long range or close range or both please reply

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-02-01

well these are estamates(i dont have the gun anymore(it was more like a prototype for my new gun(thats y there are parts from other guns on here))) sniper round: shoots around like +50- deer slug: + 30- shotgun round: + 30-

How can a gun be a sniper and a shotgun just by different ammo. This thing doesn't even have a scope.

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-04-15

why does it need a scope? anyway, i meant that it fired like a shotgun as in it made a spread shot, and then like a sniper as in t fired one very accurate shot.

author
Abominatus made it! (author)2008-02-24

the thing is .............well............... sigh......... its nothing new to have the ability t fire like a sniper and a shot gun....... think about it....... one bullet for a sniper shot and 2 or more for a shot gun shot. almost every gun on this website can do this................. srry but really its not ahead technalogicaly of most existing guns.......................srry but thats the harsh, harsh truth that we must learn to live with.........................................

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-03-08

it is because the sniper bullet can shoot through carboard and the shotgun round can spray lots of ammo every were, no just in a straite line.

Cool gun, I made it and it is very powerful. I got it to pierce paper at 15 feet (which is very good compared to other guns I built, so no offense). I am going to base my shotgun and machine gun design on your barrel, so which shall I post first?

author
dsman195276 made it! (author)dsman1952762008-02-22

i would like to see the machine gun. also if you post them please give me credit for the barrel and please put a like to this gun. also keep on the look out for the rifle. it uses the barrel but has many many more features. also the trigger is really light on the new verson and the system is more relistic.
