Introduction: Project X Knex Sniper Rifle

Picture of Project X Knex Sniper Rifle

My first fully complete sniper rifle. This is only version one my sniper but trust me it will get better. I wanted to show what I was making so I could finally get something on my page.
The sniper that I call Project X has some ideas based off a few different guns. Mainly Ironman's retractable stock. Project X also has a 10 round mag (Even though it can hold more sometimes it gets pushed out and everything then goes wrong.) A Bipod that is also removable. (The bipod however I did not make. It is from the Park 52 knex sniper which was the_burrito_masters.) The final thing that Project X has is a removable front grip. (It can be slid up and down some but sometimes it is flimsy.)
With thinking about new ideas and firing systems comes my trigger. I could not figure out how to make a good working trigger so I made one in an old musket flintlock style.
Over all I think it is a good gun. I have not quite maxed out the power but with just one rubber band on each side it goes about 7-10 feet. I know that it doesn't sound far but remember it is with one band. Sometimes though it acts flimsy in parts by the mag and the rear handle but in the upcomeing versions those problems will be fixed.
Please leave as much information about either how good or bad it is. All comments will be taken into consideration when working on V2. I will more than likely not post instructions for this version but the more comments that I get for improvements and mods will help.

 i dont know what to say...

looks amazing...but bulky and overly complicated what kind of trigger weight range and other specs please...

benfoxg (author)2008-12-03

unnecessarily bulky... no need to say more...

Ok... i need more information about this gun, like range, accuracy, etc.

why do you like it. I have a feeling that you are going to have to wait for a mod though sorry. Because first i shot it with only 1 rubber band and it went about 10 feet but when i went up in power it was so strong that the firing pin kept breaking off of the slide. Any ideas for improving it

Well i like this gun because of its looks, but looks can be decieving. I would try to make IaC's AST pistol, it has something that stabilizes the firing pin. You can also try duck tapping the ram, it helps alot. btw: I like the detachable stock

thanks but part of the idea was from ironmans retractable stock.

hey how long is it in inches i want to compare it to a m82 witch is 41 or 42 in.

the new v2 is originally about 42 inches long but about 48 with the stock extended

How much does it weigh?

I dont know probably about 5 pounds. It does weigh qutie a bit though with all the stuff on it though

ok, first of all, i thought you said it was similar to my latest knex build. there is no way i can build this monster! but still, 5*

codemaster2590 (author)DJ Radio2008-11-03

well i thought that the concept was simmular.

DJ Radio (author)codemaster25902008-11-03

also, you need to improve the range of your gun, mine shoots 45-55 feet with one band. you need a barrel with less friction, or a fake barrel......

codemaster2590 (author)DJ Radio2008-11-03

i know i need to make a better barrle and better fireing pin set up

DJ Radio (author)codemaster25902008-11-03

yeah, try to make it fake, and use rails for the pin

codemaster2590 (author)DJ Radio2008-11-03

i did i had 2 sets of rails one on top and one on the bottom and it still wasnt strong enough.

DJ Radio (author)codemaster25902008-11-03

hmm, you must be stretching the rubberbands too far

DJ Radio (author)codemaster25902008-11-03

oh, i thought you said it was a lot closer to mine than this.....

pls (author)2008-11-03

looks beefy a awesome:D I can't see what's going on in the trigger picture tho..

codemaster2590 (author)pls2008-11-03

it is kind of like two triggers in one. First the trigger pulls on the grey rod which pulls out a piece which shoots up to push the block trigger out of the way

pls (author)codemaster25902008-11-03

You could tell me what every single piece in the picture dose, I probably still wouldn't even understand..

codemaster2590 (author)pls2008-11-03

if i make a video of the next verstion i will explain it more. i just have to make some mods for it though first.

If you dont post, i will bite u!

whats the accuracy?

I think that it will be ok for accuracy. Probably just like all the other guns on this site. i just havent really tested for power yet but with what i have shot it is pretty good
