Introduction: M17 Sniper Rifle

Picture of M17 Sniper Rifle

This is a cool looking sniper rifle I called "The M17". It uses a slingshot design and an awesome trigger made by Viccie.B1993. You can also attach things like the bi pod (made by darth gecko man), the iron sight, and the ugly scope down in step 6. Watch out for snapping rubber bands, don't shoot the regular bolt up close to something (or it will break), and dont break anything valuable either. Also, keep an eye out for the image notes they are very important when building this gun. Check out my SR-V3 slide show too!

Pros: Looks cool
very accurate at a distance and up close
shoots 130 to 160 feet
comfortable and strong stock
6 second reload time
only requires one rubber band to go the distance advertised
and uses regular #64's OR thick #64's

Cons: fake magazine.

Over all I'd give it an 8/10

I hope you like it and you have fun with it!
if you have any questions or comments, please don't wait to ask.

i would just like to say, im the one that should be blamed for any printer related injuries =D.

mikstr2 (author)deathbytoast2010-11-23

haha i didnt even look at it that way when i wrote it :)

tthomasvd (author)2009-08-29

you say don't make this do you realy mean 'DON'T MAKE THIS?'

mikstr2 (author)tthomasvd2009-08-29

no I meant dont make that longer part of the barrel. and did you say you made the gun and you only got 40 to 70 feet. well to to get more range aim it at a 45 degree angle and fire it with thick rubber bands and also, even though it may snap your bands more easily, you should make sure the rubber band is tight.

Your ranges are waaay out of hand. Sort them out, or at least measure them all before false claims are made. (I sorted mine out, so don't even go there).

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2009-12-13

This is 100% true, the mag is fake, and it uses a slingshot system based on the Siprani systems.

The Jamalam (author)DJ Radio2009-12-13

Sipriani systems didn't reach 160 ft at all.

mikstr2 (author)The Jamalam2009-12-13

well its a funny thing you bring that up, i actually misunderstood how viccie made his so this is slightly different and better than his but it did jam many times before i fixed that so it ended up like this. the ammo is also very different by having wings and being much much lighter AND YES I DID MEASURE but only one flew 162 feet and if you look in the last picture on step five or the third picture on the intro you can see how much range 143 feet really is and if you still dont believe me, then build it for yourself to find out how much range it really has (if you have a big enough place to shoot)

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2009-12-13

They can.

DJ Radio (author)2009-12-13

Slingshot knex guns can.

mikstr2 (author)2009-09-18

yes knex guns can and this is no ordinary knex gun anyway.

The Jamalam (author)mikstr22009-12-13

Well... yes, it is really.

The Great Knex Warrior (author)2009-11-27

they sort of can. i even got my gun that uses a ram to go 100 ft. ive built a sniper rifle and that uses a slingshot design, they are way more powerfull with much less effort and can easily go over 150ft

tthomasvd (author)2009-09-20

okay thx
