Introduction: RMConstruction's Shadow Sniper Rifle

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!





PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO COMMENT AND RATE!

Step 1: Handle

Pretty easy to build, follow the notes for details.

Step 2: Trigger System & Ratchet

The trigger and ratchet system. Follow the notes for details.

Step 3: Foregrip

The foregrip for the barell. Very easy.

Step 4: Barell & Supports

The easy Barell and supports.

Step 5: Scope Attatchment

The scope. Very easy.

Step 6: Stock Attatchment

The stock. Pretty easy, notes to help.

Step 7: Assembly

Pretty easy assembly. Notes to help.

Step 8: Rubber Bands

Adding the bands. Again simple.

Step 9: Loading and Firing

Easy. Pull back your band, connect to the ratchet and fire!!!



Your done!
Enjoy, and please don't forget to rate and comment!!

"It was great for its time" Seriously? You have a very high opinion of yourself...

author

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?

author
RMConstruction (author)JUmrysh2011-03-16

Connectors. Red connectors with a red rod attached work best.

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?

author

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.

author

Oh, and 4 mins ago :D

author

Thirdly, i have BETTER guns tahn this.... https://www.instructables.com/id/RMConstructions-Knex-Minigun-V20/

author

taylor rocks (author)2009-02-11

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

author
frodo7 (author)taylor rocks2009-02-12

RMConstruction (author)MIKEHS932009-04-25

author
ShadowChaosControl (author)2009-01-04

it looks like the dsman crossbow, minus the bow, which isn't a bad thing, because that's what my sniper is

author

well, this was designed to be a multi-rifle it. it did have a xbow attatchment, as seen in the pic below.
