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! http://www.instructables.com/id/SR-V3/

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.

Notes: this instructable is not printer friendly
I am not liable for and injury or death. (and I am not joking)

Step 1: barrel

this is the barrel
i would just like to say, im the one that should be blamed for any printer related injuries =D.<br>
haha i didnt even look at it that way when i wrote it :)
you say don't make this do you realy mean 'DON'T MAKE THIS?'
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.
dont you think you responded like uhh a year and a half late......... just sayin haha....
That is a very big stock.
yeah this was like, my first gun :P
still cool though. I dont care about looks, just as long as it shoots.
with me i pretty much only care about looks......................
whats the silver thing?
on where?<br />
the handle
duct tape
why is there gray spacers
nice background in the first pic
wow, 143 feet!!!
does it really go that far, beacuse i want to know if this gun is worth buying knex for.it sure looks like its gonna go far but idk.
that's pretty close to the average range on this gun<br />
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).<br />
This is 100% true, the mag is fake, and it uses a slingshot system based on the Siprani systems.<br />
Sipriani systems didn't reach 160 ft at all.<br />
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)<br />
They can.<br />
okay thx
youre a sniper on a playground?
well, its actualy my back yard and if I was really sniping I would probably pick a better spot than that where enemys could easily kill me
i use the invisible ammo its the best lol
how muts bullits can it care have you a magezine or what
I dont understand what you said but it doesnt have a magazine. it is fake
;P make more MORE MOOOORRREE guns ;P
but looks great by that gun
you don't lie that IS an ugly scope O.O
not it is an bad gun it have good range.. like 40-70 ft max.
999 views! hey this is the best gun I've ever built! Am I the only one who actually built it? Five stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!
knex gunner built it
dude clean up ur room!
hey, i think I'm the only one who actually built your gun here, and it is the best gun I've ever made!
its not my room, its my basment and its very clean now
where do you get so many pieces??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I buy it online but even online its still such a rip off because it is like 100 dollars for less than 500 pieces. also this gun doesnt use very many pieces because its mostly hollow but its still strong.
hey you gave my weapon a 5 now I give you a 5 =)<br/>
