Introduction: Moded "Gorkems Sniper Rifle"

Picture of Moded "Gorkems Sniper Rifle"

The pictures are easier to follow!

This is my first Instructable guess i am an beginner.
I spent 3 months working on this sniper rifle I couldn't do it so I made my own, I based it on gorkems though.
I just couldn't get my head around making it fire multiple bullets.The gun does not reload itself and it doest fire a string of bullets because you need to pull back the ram.
This sniper requires alot of pieces if you dont have the pieces think economically .
The gun is only good for close range as i recently tested it loses most of its energy in long flights.
If you find a step difficult write a comment on the step. I think its more powerful when I fire it one at a time
I didnt sharpen the grey knex rods because i didnt want to, but it still hurts!!!

Have a good time making it!!!!

Step 1: The Butt of the Sniper

Step 8: Scope

This is the scope a pretty simple concept it is optional but it makes your sniper look cool

Step 9: Scope

Last photo of the scope

Step 10: The Handle

Picture of The Handle

This uses alot of orange connecters up, you dont really need lots of them

Step 11: The "RAM"

Picture of The "RAM"

This is what hits the bullet and causes it to fly out of the barrel
I had to tie two elastic bands together so it would have more accuracy and power but it would work the same with one if you can find one that is
i will explain this step in alot of detail

Step 12: The Body

Picture of The Body

The most important section of the gun pay alot of attention to it
im going to split the body into two steps.
This is a complicated step add a comment at the bottom if you are stuck

Step 13: The Body

Another section with more photos

Step 14: The Barrel

Picture of The Barrel

Kind of easy the string from the trigger in the previous step is attached to the secondary trigger in this step.

Step 15: The Last Piece of the Gun

Picture of The Last Piece of the Gun

This the most important and complex part of the gun and the final part

Step 16: Connecting the Gun Together

Picture of Connecting the Gun Together

Not that difficult.The pieces of the gun are positioned where they should go ,as you can see there not fully connected .It is slighlty misplaced but you should get the point,the firing pin goes in between the two white snowflakes around the area of the barrel.There are probably some bits you dont understand post a comment and i might help you.

Do you think you can bring up the power a bit?

Jarez Patel (author)palkia2010-02-21

Jarez Patel (author)2009-10-20

sorry guys im not doin anymore of this gun i find it more fun to make other peoples guns :D, but i cant add on to this gun no more cuz,it was dismantled to make another gun about a year and a half ago so sorry guys.. :(

slywolf28 (author)2009-03-21

slywolf28 (author)2009-03-12

i am very stuck...

erikos kostarikos (author)2009-01-01

i think this are'nt good only show the hole parts, we want to know how to MAKE it.

Raiden97 (author)2008-12-27

sweet i can make it

knexjay (author)2008-12-26

you should actually show how to make it piece by piece for pretty much everything because just showing tells nothing ,i tried the butt and all i got was a tiny bit otherwise it totally awesome and powerfun

calburger (author)2008-12-26

nice gun but not too clear

M477 L3E (author)2008-08-22

danblath (author)2008-12-13

sorry to break it to you but it hasn't realy hellped just putting mor pic's in i don't know about anyone else but im still confused

dtowntiger34 (author)2008-11-26

jbbcu1 (author)2008-11-08

I made a knex sniper but it is not shooting out well can you show me how it works with pics plz? thank you

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-03-28

kina cool, but how does this upgrade the origonal?

well u guys could get an idea of the structure and improve on it


KalphaK (author)I_am_Canadian2008-05-20

Well I imagine less pieces, but it seems to substitute power and stability.

eheeohoo27 (author)KalphaK2008-06-29

yes, as you can see, the connectors to stop the firing pin from moving up and down are missing wich is kinda important, also the parts he moded doesnt look very sturdy... i bet u can bend it sidewards for 1 inch lol

Jarez Patel (author)eheeohoo272008-07-19

Yeh prob, but i broke it up now,it wernt that good

Jarez Patel (author)KalphaK2008-07-19


I_am_Canadian (author)KalphaK2008-05-21
