Picture of RMConstruction's Shadow Sniper Rifle
PICT0095.JPG
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.

PROS
Removable stock
Removable scope
Powerful
Fairly accurate

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



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

that stinks?
"It was great for its time" Seriously? You have a very high opinion of yourself...
RMConstruction (author)  gtraindude4 years ago
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?
RMConstruction (author)  JUmrysh4 years ago
Connectors. Red connectors with a red rod attached work best.

where does the elastic band go on the trigger
RMConstruction (author)  tacobomb5 years ago
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.

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?
RMConstruction (author)  knexsniper16 years ago
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.
RMConstruction (author)  RMConstruction6 years ago
