Introduction: The Unbreakable K'nex Sniper

Picture of The Unbreakable K'nex Sniper

The same as the breaking sniper doesn't break! So I guess you could say that the title for this is somewhat misleading...
It also has a much better range (old one could shoot 200ft according to axiys zx)

This is for those of you who like my breaking sniper but don't need/want it to break.
Original Gun:
Hopefully this slideshow will be easy enough to use as a guide for what needs changing when you've finished the breaking version (v1)

Oh, and don't ask me to post this gun as I never will.

I checked out your compact srv1 and it's nice I like it. I especially like your working knex clock I would absolutely build it but I need 1 more large knex gear

Lowney (author)chopstx2009-10-04

Hmmm, a little off topic perhaps? :) Do you like my new unfinished shotgun?

razzlekunai (author)Lowney2009-11-02

Shotgun? More like oversized rbg.

Lowney (author)razzlekunai2009-11-02

Nooooo, it's a shotgun. It shoots bullets (knex rods).

razzlekunai (author)Lowney2009-11-04


Lowney (author)razzlekunai2009-11-05

Kinda, slingshots pull the bullet down (sling). This basically just uses the rubberband as the firing pin (rail gun).

razzlekunai (author)Lowney2009-11-06


"This basically just uses the rubberband as the firing pin (rail gun)."

So do all of the slingshot guns on this site.

Lowney (author)razzlekunai2009-11-06

With guns like the SRv2 (normal slingshots), the bullet is PULLED from it's release mech and launched forward. These triggers are basically adapted SEARS mechs.
With guns like my shotgun, the bullet is PUSHED by the band. These guns normally use RATCHET trigger mechs. They are generally more accurate but have lower range. 

chopstx (author)Lowney2009-10-04

I do! Does it shoot multiple rounds?

Lowney (author)chopstx2009-10-04

It doesn't shoot multiple rounds, but could easily be modded so it does. The main USP of this gun is the bit that isn't finished, which makes it a world first! Making that 2 one-of-a-kind guns that I have posted! (this and the breaking sniper)

i dont know

Superpoopa (author)2010-12-12

the sniper is breakable

Lowney (author)Superpoopa2010-12-12

Well obviously it's breakable if you smash it, it's referring to being the opposite of the Breaking Sniper as it has no break points.

Randomguy65 (author)2009-11-22

Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Do you think it would look better a little shorter ? NO OFENSE

Lowney (author)Randomguy652009-11-22

Looks are opinion to be honest. And yeah, it really doesn't matter, as long as the bands are stretched nice

Randomguy65 (author)Lowney2009-11-22

Did You Get my message

Lowney (author)Randomguy652009-11-22

silentassasin21 (author)2009-09-30

Lowney (author)silentassasin212009-09-30

NEVER! OK fine

Tom Buckey (author)2009-09-27

Wow looks great but cant see where it would break to fold into a bag. I its okay im going to use a folding sniper for my flash series?

Lowney (author)Tom Buckey2009-09-28

This doesn't break you would know if you read the description. And I have no problem with you making your sniper, but if you copy the breaking points from mine me want credit!

Tom Buckey (author)Lowney2009-09-28

No, not the same breaking points, but it will break and secure a bit better than yours (no offence)
