Introduction: Knex Bolt Action L96A1

Picture of Knex Bolt Action L96A1

this is my Knex L96A1

also know as: Magnum Sniperrifle, AWM,AWP (and go on)

in the most games they look big and frightning :P

its fake! in real its only a sniper witch has a length of 940mm

there are some variations witch can fire 50cal. bullets....
any way this baby can shoot as far as u want to, my building tactic here is to make the barrel as easy as possible, so the bullet can fly out easely.

the barrel is 5 layer thick, with 3 layers of space for a bullet witch is 1 layer thick!
(the bleu part on the front of the gun)

Step 1: The Pieces

I counted them all myself

if there are any mistakes, please comment it, and i will correct it....

Step 2: Starting With the Stock

follow carefully xD

Step 3: Making the Trigger

this is the hardest part :P

Step 4: Tha Magazine

Picture of Tha Magazine

capaticity of 5 rounds, like the real one

this magazine is pretty cool, because you can put the bullets in the upper part, and they will not fly out.

Step 5: The Scoop

forgott to take a pic from the whole scoop......

Step 6: The Barrel

barrel, as simple as possible xD

dr. richtofen (author)2012-01-12

CuddlesMcT (author)2010-12-05

can i use this gun to post a shell ejecting mechanism? Ill give you credit :)

noneedto (author)CuddlesMcT2010-12-05

YEAH you do that!! =D as long as you give me credit, in your post

CuddlesMcT (author)noneedto2010-12-05

rofl it can only hold one bullet.any more and itl jam D:

noneedto (author)CuddlesMcT2010-12-07

then you will need to buy glasses.. cauz it holds 5 rounds.... and on what does it get stucked?

CuddlesMcT (author)noneedto2010-12-07

Noooonooo, basically, the shell and the bullet would get wedged between some pieces when you pulled the ram back, so you could only put one bullet in without having the mag jam. But ive fixed that problem. Ill post a pic in a day or so.

noneedto (author)CuddlesMcT2010-12-12

there is no shell LOL.... bullet= grey connector+orange on the back connected with a green rod?

CuddlesMcT (author)noneedto2010-12-12

noo im modding it for a shell ejecting mechanism im done anyway:

noneedto (author)CuddlesMcT2010-12-21

its kinda nice build i see :)..... but i do not recommend shooting rods.. connectors are far more accurate, i dont know why............

CuddlesMcT (author)noneedto2010-12-21

yeah it is, when i first shot it with your rounds i got a pretty nice distance. i just like this mechanism cause of looks xD

TheKnexNoob (author)2010-10-25

Looks good. I might make it tomorrow. I might not have enough yellows though... Can I spare any?

TheKnexNoob (author)TheKnexNoob2010-10-25

Step 3, Pic 2 : What piece is broken? White rod, or Red connector?

noneedto (author)TheKnexNoob2010-11-17

ow, the white rod ;)

jack691 (author)2010-11-16

SonicX 22 (author)2010-04-23

 been looking for a sniper since 2008,

until i saw this i was very happy, you had a great scope, my fav type of magazine and the bolt, all the best!!!!!!!!!

shoots about 80Ft.


noneedto (author)SonicX 222010-04-25

yhs... u know why this gun shoots so far??

BECAUSE IT'S SO SIMPLE! the most instructables here are more concentrated on the looks, but not at the mechanism at all :P i do both xD

(made new compact rifle, top loading, and with a attachable scope!!)

if u guys want that instructable, comment it!

CraigDH (author)2010-04-28

grwat ive built it sorry i took so long to replie its great 5*

Nazgul (author)2010-04-15

wow!! when i saw this a few days ago, i thought it was cool, but i wasn't sure if i wanted to make this. i did, and it came out very great!! It doesn't use up too many pieces, it looks awesome, a nice grip and good work on the mags. i made some mods though, just to make it stronger. This is a great gun, i think you should keep making guns. 5 stars, subscribed.

noneedto (author)Nazgul2010-04-20

thnx dude

dutchwarlord (author)2010-04-09

is it real bolt action

noneedto (author)dutchwarlord2010-04-09

yes it sure is xD

DJ Radio (author)noneedto2010-04-10

No it isn't.  Something like my AR-4 v3 is true bolt action.

noneedto (author)DJ Radio2010-04-11

please stfu if you don't know what ya talking about........................................ thats bolt action!!!

DJ Radio (author)noneedto2010-04-11

I do know what I am talking about, thus I won't "stfu" as you put it.

The knex definition of bolt action is a bit different since that exact mech can't be made with knex.  The knex definition is a system where the mag is separate from the barrel, and pulling the bolt back pulls the pin back, and loads a round into the chamber.  Pushing the bolt forward pushes the round into the barrel for firing. 

Your gun is just a normal mag fed gun, you pull the pin back, aim and shoot.  Thus it is not bolt action.  Sure you push the thing that you use to pull the ram back forward after pulling it back, but that doesn't make the ammo load from a mag chamber into the barrel. 

noneedto (author)DJ Radio2010-04-11


u do know what ya talking about xD..

but it isnt that easy to make it huh?

DJ Radio (author)noneedto2010-04-11

It is easier than you think.  I've done it before.  Zak has done a more impressive variation of the true bolt action system, his being bottom loading.

Seleziona (author)2010-04-10

It's pretty good!

knexsuperbuilderfreak (author)2010-04-09

~KGB~ (author)2010-04-08

KnexFreek (author)2010-04-08

DJ Radio (author)2010-04-08
