Introduction: FSSR - True Bolt Action Sniper Rifle

UPDATE!!!!-I have reposted the trigger pictures


You have seen the pictures, and you can now build it!

this is easily my personal favourite gun, it gets great power and has a couple of new features that I hope you like.

v.0 after cleaning up my wardrobe I found an old block trigger prototype, it was bolt action and had a safety, it was probably made sometime in january, way back before the guns in my first slideshow.
v1.0 extensive remodeling of the original, added a true trigger and made the reloading mech much better looked and worked just like the one you see here.
v1.1 added the fake barrel inside the gun and built the bipod.
v1.2 built the ammo rack and cellphone sight
v1.3 added the scope
v1.4 added a small mod that made loading easier

v1.x a version that replaces the bolt action system with an 8 shot trurret, is sill just an idea but I may actually build it

range: up to 20 meters I think
weight: 1.4 kg
mechinism: bolt action
trigger: true
rate of fire: 1 shot per second with a bit of practice
power: I broke a glass using 2 #64 rubber bands fom 1 meter
ammo capacity: 2 yellow rods in the locked hopper or up to 12 in the open hopper
attatchments: cellphone sight, 18 round ammo belt and a removable bipod

please note: this is not a copy of djradio's ar-4 v3 in any way, they may look similar and use basicly the same mech but they are different, this has a smaller profile a bigger grip and different sights I did not copy him!

Step 1: Parts List

please not this is probably a bit off, also you do not need to use the same peices that I have used

The gun
grey one clip: 30
grey 2 clip: 3
orange 2 clip: 57
red 3 clip: 76
green 4 clip: 58
yellow 5 clip: 49
blue 7 clip 3d: 28
white 8 clip: 35

green: 75
white: 97
blue: 46
yellow: 5
red: 4
grey: 9
black: 1

blue spacer: 39
silver space: 6
tan clip: 30
blue clip: 2 please note I dont have any of these so I use a tan clip with the peg cut off
black clip: 7
orange clip: 2
grey gear: 2
small tire: 11
female ball joint: 1
large hole inge: 1

half orange connector: 8
cut blue rod: 1 this has one end cut off so it is as long as a white rod
cut white rod: 1 this has both ends cut off

note these are just for the gun not the bipod or attatchments

Step 2: The Foregrip

should be easy enough to build, its just two grey rods with red connectors on them connected with annother grey rod then with more connectors on the side. sorry the pics aren't clear

Step 3: Sights

pretty self explanitory

Step 4: Fake Barrel

just your average fake barrel, also most of the blue 7 clip connectors can be relpaced by white snowflakes

Step 5: Handle and Stock

Step 6: Pin

Step 7: Trigger and Support

I replaced the really blurry picture with better new ones, now you can build it

Step 8: The Mech

Kinda bad pics again (sorry)

Step 9: Assembly and Other Stuff

You are almost finished your very own FSSR!

Step 10: Rubber Bands

Simple, I use 64's here

Step 11: Loading

pretty self explanitory

What is a cellphone sight? :S

dr. richtofen made it! (author)dr. richtofen2011-12-10

sorry for late reply. This cellphone sight is just an mobile phone with an camera function added onto the gun. So you can zoom in the camera and shoot. Also if you camp in an war with this gun and the cellphone sight attached, and youre bored, you can chat with other one's via the sight

Aww man! This would be the best side arm during a knex war.

H1T4TCH1 made it! (author)2011-07-11

Call it what you want to call it. I am not being mean, I'm just saying something about your behaviour, and you still act childish by fixing my spelling/grammar and the comment about 'you act cool' or what you said, so if that is appropriate for your age, then it is and I know with who I am talking to.

H1T4TCH1 made it! (author)2011-07-10

What is that comment adding to the conversation ?

H1T4TCH1 made it! (author)2011-07-10

that's good to hear.

little sad that you still react childish by correcting me on my spelling and grammar. I shall not pay any more attention to this discussion because that's far below my standard.

Have a nice day.

H1T4TCH1 made it! (author)2011-07-10

man, grow up! I know this was posted a year or so ago, but hey, you react so childish. O hey: You are a child!

Blackonyx2234 made it! (author)2010-12-12

But its the only one that stuck out as extraordinary, (no offence)

DJ Radio made it! (author)DJ Radio2011-06-26

Extraordinary? This is the exact same mechanism as one of my guns, but with a different body, and no guide. It even fires the same ammo.

You made an iBow?

Lowney made it! (author)2011-04-24

Dude, there's nothing more frustrating than building gun, posting it and have someone say something like that on it. People put a lot of time into these things. I'm not saying say everything is ace because of course it isn't, but try to be constructive rather than just say stuff like that. If you haven't got anything nice to say just don't say anything at all. And I think this gun is pretty sweet actually, considering it's a true bolt action :P

TheFoofinator made it! (author)TheFoofinator2011-06-26

And he gets stressed when people downrate his guns ;P I thought we'd all grown out of that!

~KnexBuild~ made it! (author)2011-06-12

how did you make the ammo belt please post picks

RedStark made it! (author)2011-01-22


Ahhhhhh thats better

Fred the Penguin made it! (author)2010-11-29

and the funny thing is that it was posted over a year ago and it is still better than anything you have built.

(no offense)

what is the last step. what bit is it

RedStark made it! (author)2010-12-19

your guns are ok but logic boy's guns are amazing

Fred the Penguin made it! (author)2010-12-14

first of all that is the ibow
secondly the tr was designed for simplicity and effectiveness. It will shoot hard and not break. the tr was also first posted around the same time as this gun and it is still unbeaten as the gun of choice for most knex wars simply because it is so good.

Fred the Penguin made it! (author)2010-12-14

where does that leave your stuff then...

ooo ooo I know GARBAGE

Lowney made it! (author)2010-12-14

lol it only uses the TR18 turret, the rest of the gun is different (it's like a slingshot hybrid) :P

Blackonyx2234 made it! (author)2010-12-12

I must admit that your stampede looks awesome

Fred the Penguin made it! (author)2010-12-04

Whose gun is it then???

Fred the Penguin made it! (author)2010-12-03

So you've built a more powerful true bolt action rifle that is more innovative than this...

your stuff seems ok, but it is all generic and overdone. The pin designs you use also would reduce the power of your guns.

this was also posted over a year ago. I have improved alot since then. Just look at anything posted after this. Weapons like the I-Bow are one of a kind, to mu knowledge no-one has built anything using a system qute like it. I try to pust the boundery when building, wheras most of your stuff sicks inside the square. We have had true trigger mag fed guns for a long, long time.

RedStark made it! (author)2010-11-07

how many pieces is that???????????????????

mulletman6 made it! (author)2010-09-29

I actually found it rather easy to make this :)

Fred the Penguin made it! (author)Fred the Penguin2010-09-29

what did you think?

mulletman6 made it! (author)mulletman62010-09-29

Its awesome :) - could never get the bolt to push the next "bullet" in properly tho, but apart from that its really good. Like it so much, i havn't taken it apart :). Now i wanna make your Illogic Bow - made all your other gun and love them all :)

Fred the Penguin made it! (author)Fred the Penguin2010-09-29

thanks, the new stuff that I'll be posting next is going to be far better than this or anything else I've built.

mulletman6 made it! (author)mulletman62010-09-30

ah, awesome! I'll make sure i keep an eye out for it :)

erikos kostarikos made it! (author)2010-02-27

I wish there were better instructions for this, because this is the best looking sniper rifle I've ever seen.
Tried to build, but I needed to mod it so it would work.
I couldn't see how yo make your mechanism because of the blurry pictures.=[

I said:because this is the best looking sniper rifle I've ever seen. That's just what I think.=]

xPittbullx made it! (author)xPittbullx2010-02-28

i did the same but mine works just as well as his, i just wanna know how to make the safety.

erikos kostarikos made it! (author)erikos kostarikos2010-03-01

Well I think a safety is not very important but safeties are not that hard to make.=]

xPittbullx made it! (author)xPittbullx2010-03-01

not important at all lol, i just like it =P i dont know how to make one like his.

erikos kostarikos made it! (author)erikos kostarikos2010-03-04

Just make a rod that sticks into a hole next to the trigger, and if you want the safety on, push it in, if you want it off, pull it out.=]
