Introduction: KillerK's Dangerous Sniper Rod Mod

Picture of KillerK's Dangerous Sniper Rod Mod

Assuming you all know KillerK and his famous K'nex pistol, I have a mod for his sniper rod. It is a very dangerous dart, and seeing how he shot his sniper rod 200+ feet, this dart can go about that range.

Step 1: Materials

What you need are:
-KillerK's sniper rod
-KillerK's gun (optional)
-Super Glue
-Needles or nails

Step 2: Breaking the Needle

Here, you are breaking the needle in about half, so the long needle doesn't bend that easily while being hammered. I found that my needles break if you take pliers and bend them. Be careful though, the needle will go flying if you don't put any cover on it. Just use a sheet of paper to cover the dangerous part of the needle.

Step 3: Hammering the Needle

Basically, in this step you are hammering the needle into the tip of the rod. Try and find the middle, mark it with a hammer or two, then hammer the rest in. I'm not sure how much you have to hammer in, but hammer in as much as you can. It is hard because K'nex is very durable, meaning the needle won't go in easily.

Step 4: Taking the Needle Out

Now that you've hammered in the needle far enough, you can take it out. Don't try and use your fingers, they'll just slip. Instead, use your pliers to ply it out. The needle might be bent, so break another needle in half.

Step 5: Super Glue That Hole!

Use your super glue to fill in that hole. After that, use your pliers to hold the needle tight. Insert the needle blunt side first into the hole and let the super glue do its work.

Step 6: Let It Dry, Pl0x

Just let it dry. To make it more stable because my needle looked like it might come off, just fill the whole top with super glue and let it dry over night. The following day, you will have a hard needle stuck in there and you will be able to shoot it at your dart or bulletin board.

i find that simply adding one of those 90 degree red peices does the same thing and is ore durable. iv shot a white peice(2.5 CM) with a 90 degree red piece on the end and hit a pop can from about 45 feet. (* it dented but did not go through. if any one would like i will post my sniper rifle up. yes its a block trigger with a string trigger attatchment but requires no part modding or glue or tape(unless you want to go over kill an d put 300 elastics on it) please respond and tell me if i should

 I have tried to make a sentry crossbow with 250 bands stringing from 25 positions, it failed since 4 people couldn't pull back all the rubber bands fast enough, but when it shot, it shot 2 miles 521 feet from a 30 degree angle

Slurpee801 (author)knex_mepalm2012-03-05

One, that wouldn't be a crossbow, because they do not utilize rubber bands. Two, do you realize how rediculous that sounds?


Movie style crossbow. Ill find the picture then PM you it, tis like 2x1 metre and is just a waste of time.

it may be late, but don't post. we all hate block triggers, maybe make it true, then post.

if you snip off the top (clicking area) you will find a hole that goes all the way down, add the needle into that.

zap89 (author)DrWeird1172008-08-23

Sadam and Osama (author)2007-12-07

That's why I always take safety precautions and get all people behind me before I shoot. Wow, I shot one at my bulletin board with two rubber bands, but unfortunately, the needle wasn't long enough so it bounced back due to the force. _ Dangerous? Yes.

Oh yes...there will be blood....

oh yes..its the kind of thing i would shoot in my garage. thanks to your bike has a flat tire lol i kept the sharp end... luckily i have an extra tube

Whaleman (author)flames103912007-12-08

Or you could use caulk.

flames10391 (author)Whaleman2007-12-08

or that

yerjoking (author)2008-09-13

I just made one like this, it was a track splice on an red rod, with a sticky name tag thingy on, its so much easier to make fins with them

yerjoking (author)yerjoking2008-09-13

Oh, and it does give it more range, and more accuracy (the fins that is)

ninjusk (author)2008-08-14

I have a questions about your "mod". It looks a little dangerous. I wouldn't make this for many reasons.

what's your questions?

how do u even make the sniper rod to begin with xD

04bobby1 (author)2007-12-09

Only sick people would make this or people with broblems k'nex shouldnt be used for killing you make me sick !!!!!!!!!

Sadam and Osama (author)04bobby12007-12-13

you know you dont have to shoot it at people; you can shoot it at boards or stationary targets

Kaiven (author)2007-12-11

how many fins? and what's the best tape

Kaiven (author)Kaiven2007-12-11

oh, and click the reply button or i don't know you replied to me

Sadam and Osama (author)2007-12-10

@ the_burrito_master the tape isn't a parachute, it actually helps. It seems like you haven't tested out his gun. If you shoot a normal rod, it goes flipping in the air. If you shoot the rod with the tape fins, it helps guide the rod through the air and it flies straight. According to KillerK, he says that if you add the tape fins, it flies 3 times farther than without the fins.

the_burrito_master (author)2007-12-09

well doesn't the tape just act like a parachute

Sadam and Osama (author)2007-12-09

@ 04bobby1 I didn't mean for this to be a real weapon, I only thought of this for dart board purposes. Not to kill people.


i just find that funny because of your name, it looks nicely made (dangerous but nicely made)

Sadam and Osama (author)2007-12-08

I'm open to any suggestions of how to stick the needle in the tip because I can't think of any.

Sadam and Osama (author)2007-12-08

Why would you shoot it at your bike? Unless you missed horribly or something =P

i aimed at a shoebox target i made and it went through, bounce off the wall and went straight into my bike's tire lol

flames10391 (author)2007-12-07

damn i don't know if i should build this i'd be afraid to hurt someone like my sister and then get in a crapload of trouble if she's not too badly hurt
