Introduction: Leupold Mark IV Telescopic Sight, Knex Style

Picture of Leupold Mark IV Telescopic Sight, Knex Style

--UPDATE-- 3-03-10: Added more pictures.

In the past few days I have been more active then ever, posting many Ibles and slideshows alike. Today, on a request of Barrax, I present to you the Leupold Mark IV Scope, the one that is used on the Barrett sniper rifle (see the fourth image). I will not post it for it is easy to build it from the pictures, but if you have some problems building I'll post some more pictures. The wheel that is on the front can be removed if you want a scope that works, but it looks much better with the wheel on it. You can also add a recticle on your version if you want. One final warning though; this scope uses much more pieces then most knex scopes, and most of them a black connectors. Plan ahead before you decide to build.

Credit to The Jamalam for the part with the red connectors. Please comment on how I could improve this even further.

Also, I have a lot of more interesting knex Instructables coming; two knex swords and shields, a pump action rifle with a very high ROF, a working knex RPG (not like my AVAMGERR 2, which was a pure showcase gun), and a repeating underbarrel shotgun. If you want to be the first to know it when any of these will come out, subscribe!

Might take some time. Can you try building it of the pictures instead? It's not a very difficult build.

What happened to all those designs you were going to post?

TigerNod (author)tytiger332011-04-18

Yes, I'm sorry for that. I have a tendency to work on new designs and then quit halfway the process. The same goes for making Instructables.

So in short, I started making instructions but I never finished them... And that's what happened to 70% of all my Instructables.

Captain Price at the time was a leftinent, not a luietenent.

Lowney (author)2010-05-26

This is without a doubt the best knex thing on here that is about a scope!

TigerNod (author)Lowney2010-05-26

Thanks Lowney! But have you seen Motaboi's scope? I think it's even better then this one.

Link in comment below.

Lowney (author)TigerNod2010-05-26

Meh, they're both good

spricer988 (author)2010-05-11

 plz post some more pics so i can make it properly...i give the scope  5*

TigerNod (author)spricer9882010-05-12

It's gonna be difficult, I broke it down a moth ago... But I'll try to do the best I can. You might also consider Motaboí's scope, it's more like the improved version of this.

Soopah Steve (author)2010-04-27

 OMG, BEASTLY... 5/5

TigerNod (author)Soopah Steve2010-04-28

Thanks! If you're planning on building this, MotaBoi made a much scope on his Cheytac Intervention, which looks a lot like this one but fits on a standard gun more easely. Here is the link:

joshualater (author)2010-03-05

 can you post instructions? i made a really cool sniper based off the storm 221 by The Jamalam but i don't have that good of a scope.

TigerNod (author)joshualater2010-03-06

Can you try to build it from the pictures? If not, I'll post instructions.

joshualater (author)TigerNod2010-03-06

 I did after i posted that comment...but i ran out of those black Y shaped things and snowflake connectors

TigerNod (author)joshualater2010-03-06

Too bad.

~KGB~ (author)2010-03-05

i might use this on my barrett 50cal, if you dont mind?

TigerNod (author)~KGB~2010-03-06

Hey, by the way, does that mean you're staying on Instructables?

~KGB~ (author)TigerNod2010-03-06

yep, thanks to all who helped!

TigerNod (author)~KGB~2010-03-06


~KGB~ (author)TigerNod2010-03-06


TigerNod (author)~KGB~2010-03-06

Of course, go ahead; that is where knex scopes are for :-)

no problem!

KnexFreek (author)2010-03-03

 very Very VERY nice. Wow. 5 stars well deserved!

TigerNod (author)KnexFreek2010-03-04

Thank you! I'm glad to hear you like it!

TwistedParadox (author)2010-03-03

Use the golden clips used for rollercoaster tubing, if you put 4 of the face inward from around a circle, it makes an inverted crosshair. (no idea if you understood any of that, it's hard to explain)

TigerNod (author)TwistedParadox2010-03-04

I know, the reson why I didn't put it on this scope is because it would mean I had to break apart a very large part so I could fit it in.

barrax (author)2010-03-03

yeah you won.

i made it from the other pictures, and modded it.

Its now got its own platform, where it can easily be mounted, and taken off.

TigerNod (author)barrax2010-03-03

Cool! Can you show me a picture of it?

cool bas3 (author)2010-03-03

I think you win the contest

TigerNod (author)cool bas32010-03-03

What contest?

cool bas3 (author)TigerNod2010-03-03

That request of Barrax

TigerNod (author)cool bas32010-03-03

Oh, right. But I see a difference between a request and a contest.

cool bas3 (author)TigerNod2010-03-03

I know! But i rated it 5*

TigerNod (author)cool bas32010-03-03

Thank you!
