This is my Shadow Sniper-Rifle. I was improving my previous sniper, and i kinda hated the back, so i only kept the barell. I added various other parts including a great ratchet system and foregeip. Gradually, i improved it more and more, and i ended up with this great gun. I call it the "Shadow" sniper rifle because it is still quite accurate in the dark.

Removable stock
Removable scope
Fairly accurate

If you use the wrong size band, the barell can rip in half

Red connector + blue rod
Random connectors, not white. They jam the ratchet!


Step 1: Handle

Pretty easy to build, follow the notes for details.
that stinks?
"It was great for its time" Seriously? You have a very high opinion of yourself...
You are not a Knexer. It was great for its time, yet you come and oppose it with your 'stupidly high' standards. You are not Gtrain, and will never share his knowledge. I would like to end this here. No further commenting from you is required or frankly wanted.
What does this sniper shoot?
Connectors. Red connectors with a red rod attached work best.
How do you make the stock
3 Layers of what you can see.
made its cool
nice gun. i love the instructions. i have also now decided on the sniper im gonna make when my friend comes over on monday. 5*
Nice gun man it and i did modify some things Nice gun i rated 5.0
whats the ammo
where does the elastic band go on the trigger
You can see it on the very last picture.
The gun looks ok but the stock and scope could use work and the design is not new so 4 stars.
could I have a piece count please
In ,short, NO. Sorry, this gun is long gone.
This weapon is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the best weapon ever ! You're the man now!
Thanks! and did you rate?
hey, nice gun man. just out of curiosity, if it uses a rubberband to launch a projectile, how can it use a removable mag? our any type of mag in the first place?
There are different types of knex guns. this gun is called a 'sling shot' gun. with sling shot weps, you can't use a mag.
Oh, and 4 mins ago :D

OMG! IT's A RESEMBLANCE TO DSMAN'S CROSSBOW! GASP! I"m NOT BUILDING IT! I'm going to build your minigun. :P
no it isnt. his xbow was 5 layers thick, this is 3. ==. but yes, the stock is very similar to his!<br/>
the gun works sooooooo much better if you turn the stock round the other way btw awesome gun :)
I have! I think it's great!!!
have what?
somebody who gets the hopper/mag mechanism should build it onto this cause its sorta crap having to keep loading it but besides that i rate 7/10
cant put a mag onto a rachet gun- I've tried
actually, you can! i found a multi shot, mag fed ratchet system shtogun XD
You built it :D thanks a lot!
sick gun put more bands on it though and 2 on trigger
its destroyed.... have bigger guns now...
mine only shoots off the band not the rod i put along the rail
it shoots connectors dude.
is the rubber band meant to fly off?
nope, it should stay connected...
explain the firing better like the band on the trigger?
it looks like the dsman crossbow, minus the bow, which isn't a bad thing, because that's what my sniper is
well, this was designed to be a multi-rifle it. it did have a xbow attatchment, as seen in the pic below.
have u got instructable for that bow
have ins pics if u want.... here....
I made this gun lasy night and it took me 4 hours to build, then i shot my sister in the stomach and my mum destroyed, so i'm making it again then im gonna hide it
Ouch.... what ammo did ya use? and... did ya suss out how 2 built the stock? (forgot to post pics somehow, lol)
hey plz i don't get how it fires
You built? great! pull the band like it in the pic above, put ammo on the rail, close as possible to the white ratchet system. Jus pull the trigger!
