Picture of M17 Sniper Rifle
instructables 003.JPG
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.

you say don't make this do you realy mean 'DON'T MAKE THIS?'
mikstr2 (author)  tthomasvd6 years ago
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.

knex guns can't get that range -.-" maybe an knex cannon can
lowneys sr v2 can shoot 500 ft!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I meant the one he built. But yes it is KILLERK's gun.
Slingshot knex guns can.
mikstr2 (author)  tthomasvd5 years ago
yes knex guns can and this is no ordinary knex gun anyway.
Well... yes, it is really.
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

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).
This is 100% true, the mag is fake, and it uses a slingshot system based on the Siprani systems.
Sipriani systems didn't reach 160 ft at all.
mikstr2 (author)  The Jamalam5 years ago
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)
They can.
