Introduction: Knex Subsonic Sniper

An awesome knex sniper which has a range from 100 to 130 feet. it is my own design. i have made a new type of trigger too.

pros:
true trigger
good power
nice look
strong frame
2 ways to shoot the gun if rubber bands are too strong for the regular trigger

cons:
takes a strong arm to cock the gun
nothing else...

what knex set did you get the half moon with thing on it?

author
inergy (author)2011-01-15

not to make fun of your gun, but through a piece of paper from 10 feet away isn't so great. my H.A.W.C. goes through 3 coke cans from 10 feet away...

awsome :)

jtpickett (author)2010-02-14

The first step is it a rubber band or a string

author
rhayel (author)2010-02-07

I made today

ILIKEPIE333 (author)2009-09-15

why do you need 2 instructibles? this one is enough, but the trigger might be original in design, but not in theory

author
Oblivitus (author)2009-06-03

He was talking about a k'nex gun the size of a house that could fire rounds at supersonic speed. It would go a tiny bit more than one hundred feet.

author
bobwuvspie (author)Oblivitus2009-07-22

the title says subsonic but whatever

author
advinator (author)Oblivitus2009-06-04

ok srry

author
Oblivitus (author)advinator2009-06-04

There's no need to appologize, I wasn't being sarcastic out of frustration, I was trying to be funny, I will add lol next time. :)

haginguy (author)2009-07-21

how do u do this bit?

author
RMConstruction (author)2009-07-18

You mean siblings.....

author
The Jamalam (author)2009-06-03

I have doubts as to the range. It looks good, but (no offence) but how would you get a knex rod to 130 ft with a firing pin mech? Even with my infamous unknown rubberbands, this would probably shoot about as far as my 221 (85 ft average). 4 stars

author
advinator (author)The Jamalam2009-06-03

its all in the bands Jamalam!!!!!!!!!!

author
lord voldamort (author)advinator2009-06-03

you sassed The Jamalam!

author
slywolf28 (author)lord voldamort2009-07-06

Yeah dude, get over it. Hahaha. I once told him his gun sucked because it didn't work like he said it would. A-hole...Hahaha

author
The Jamalam (author)slywolf282009-07-12

Lol thats funny. Haha. Oh my god, the gun doesn't work. I'll use that.

author
DJ Radio (author)lord voldamort2009-06-03

everybody does nowadays, its not new.

author
Blackbird17 (author)2009-07-06

how can the bullet get in if there are gray connecters in the way?

author
slywolf28 (author)2009-07-06

Hey I'm having some trouble with this gun. It works fine but it's not giving me any where near as much power as you claimed. I know it matters on the rubber bands but I added 7 rubber bands and it went only about 30 feet.

author
slywolf28 (author)2009-06-09

im gonna use a white rod instead of a ball joint and a green rod. i think itll work

author
Blackbird17 (author)slywolf282009-06-30

did it?

author
slywolf28 (author)Blackbird172009-07-02

yes actually. it worked perfectly

author
knexguy (author)2009-06-02

Well, I'd be impressed if someone made a supersonic knex gun.

author
Oblivitus (author)knexguy2009-06-02

Well, it would just need to be very very large, like say, the size of a house? XD

author
stale56 (author)Oblivitus2009-06-02

That. Would. Need. Alot. Of. Rubberbands.

author
Oblivitus (author)stale562009-06-03

Yes. It. Would.

author
chopstx (author)Oblivitus2009-07-01

and a ton of knex. think of the strength the body would need to hold!!!!

author
Blackbird17 (author)2009-06-30

its gray

author
Blackbird17 (author)2009-06-30

is that a green/red rod or a gray rod?

author
nerfer (author)2009-06-10

how do you use rubberbands to make knex fly???"

author
The Jamalam (author)2009-06-06

real original trigger dude...

author
The Jamalam (author)2009-06-03

And why make 2 separate instructables for the same gun?

author
advinator (author)The Jamalam2009-06-03

because the file size for the first one ran out : /

author
Oblivitus (author)advinator2009-06-04

Oh really? What do you mean by that?

author
knexguy (author)2009-06-04

What is wrong with you?!

author
Der Bradly (author)2009-06-03

Nope.

author
DJ Radio (author)2009-06-03

Thats a ridiculous amount of bands on just one knex gun for the ram or sling. You should try putting 2 or 3 on. Also, I have built guns that are similar as in barrel and ammo type, so I know it cant shoot 100 feet.

author
DJ Radio (author)2009-06-03

thats not a knex gun...

author
danymw (author)2009-06-03

i had the same trigger on 2 guns and i changed them to real solid interior trigger because they break too easily and don't work on high power. looks nice and the scope too blue rods sharpened or not barely hit 50 feet (inside)

author
Der Bradly (author)2009-06-02

Doesn't shoot 100 ft. Probally 40 ft.

author
amtdude (author)2009-06-02

not much power :(

author
DJ Radio (author)2009-06-02

This gun is awesome, but I doubt it shoots 100-130 feet. 4.5*
