Introduction: K'NEX Mini Sniper!

Picture of K'NEX Mini Sniper!

It finally happened. NYPA finally made a K'NEX gun. This is actually a pretty good one. It fires a estimated 60 feet with two pairs of tied together #33 rubber bands. go ahead and try using #64's but you'll spend forever pulling the pin back. This is my first K'NEX Instructable using my sort of new K'NEX. Now the gun. features are-
# 60 ft range
# true trigger
# bipod
# stock
# ammo holding belt
# bolt cover.

Yes sorry but it does use hinges to those people who don't have them. It also uses blue clips. Don't forget chain links too. Just to make it more frustrating it also utilizes a black carbon rod. Ok! are you ready! Yes! Then click step one!

Ammo is red connector on yellow rod. like a odammo except with a yellow rod.
now for every chain link you need a red connector, chain link and a round.
Got it?

Trigger looks pretty weak, and there are better alternatives. 3*

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-08-08

trigger is not weak at all as i used tape to strenghen it. Did you even go though the whole thing?

DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-08-08

most triggers are strong without tape.

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-08-09

well yeah. but as in my bow you said a new design gets credit. this design is new.

DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-08-09

I laugh.

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-08-09


DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-08-09

tube and stick design with 1 minute stock and an ammo chain.

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-08-09

i could build your OSSR stock in a minute. Wait, i HAVE.

DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-08-09

Prove it. I spent 2 hours making the stock, one was digging in a knex tub for the right parts.

Raiden97 (author)DJ Radio2009-10-26

lol, when i make something i dump all my knex on the floor

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-08-09

I organize my knex so i got the parts and assembled it in a minute.

DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-08-09

Prove it.

cj81499 (author)DJ Radio2009-08-21

he does organize his parts i am going to soon and i know because i went to his house yesterday

DJ Radio (author)cj814992009-08-21

Prove that he got my stock assembled in a minute. He would still need lightning hands.

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-08-27

Ha, the "stock" is only really the row of connectors in the back so, you lose!

DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-08-27

Silentassassin 21 did it the right way. I didnt fill it up because I dont have enough parts.

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-08-27

still that is the only place your shoulder touches.

DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-08-27

You are supposed to fill all of it up. Not just that part.

cj81499 (author)DJ Radio2009-08-27

not really

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-08-21

Anyone can.

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-08-09

i took it apart like a month ago.

heat-seeker (author)2009-10-23

nothing new
no looks


DJ Radio (author)2009-09-07

One last thing- needs a bullet lock.

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-09-08

it has one. you know the ends of the gray rods on the very front? well the outer connector slots of the red connector slot on to there. it doesn't really affect range.

glugnar (author)2009-08-08

i think it looks cool
