S.P.A.R.C.S.S. :Special Purpose Assault Rifle Combined with Shotgun and Sniper version 1.7

knex 5.jpg
Update: 16 Juli 2009 Tomorrow a new slideshow will be released which will contain new information and pictures about both the AVAMGERR and the SPARCCS. It will also contain information about a new compact shotgun sidearm by me, and some general news about the knex community. I am planning of releasing this every month or so, so stay sharp.

Ladies, and gentleman. It has been a long time since you heard from me since the SPACSAILS has been recycled (if you have even heard from me). I've wasted my time on playing RA3, and building the spacsails, a failed ball machine, and loads of failed mg concepts. But good news for everyone who liked the shotgun and was sad that I decommissionned it: I proudly present to you the Special Purpose Assault Rifle Combined with Sniper and Shotgun, also known as S.P.A.R.C.S.S. (not to be confused with sparks) The Sparcss v0.5 was designed to be a powerful sniper able to shoot 8 w rods at a time, just like the Spacsails. It also had the looks that you liked from the SPACSAILS, because I got a quite a few positive comments on it. But bad placed bands and a poor ramrod design meant i had to totally redisign it in order to keep up with the others. The result was the Spacsails v1.5. It is this beautyful gun that has a range of a very nice 23 meters (75 feet), though it sacrifices the shotgunny effects from the Spacsails. I think it is pretty good, and not because of its range, damage, or convienence, but because of its looks. Its a big, lumbering and heavy kickass gun and that's why I like it. It also got this cool scope that mepain made. And it arguebly the most sturdiest knex gun you'll ever see. I cannot post it yet however, I am a bit struggeling with the trigger (See link: http://www.instructables.com/answers/What_is_the_best_gun_to_build_if_you_just_want_to_/). If I am ready I will post instructions. If there is someone else that wants to do it, just pm me and I'll try to get more detailled pic's. When the gun is posted, I am planning on making some extra optional stuff on it, like a bipod, a longer barrel, a fake clip ejection system, and a secondary machine gun. Do freak out if one or more of these extra's will never get posted, for they are not confirmed yet. The pictures in this slideshow will show you the guns before this one and the best features of my new one. Let me know what you think of it, all feedback or tips are accepted (except hate comments), besides, I'm building it for myself, but I'm sharing it for you guys!

i would not like to be on the receiving end of that when it is fired
TigerNod (author)  pinderfish3 years ago
Lol, no you don't. This thing fires a heavy projectile. In fact I don't even want to fire it anymore, I'm afraid it breaks down when I try to pull back the pin...
oh so you fire it and it blows both the target and the sniper of the face of the earth at the same time!
TigerNod (author)  pinderfish3 years ago
Not exactly: it rather blows the shooter and leaves the intended target intact. ;-)
oh brilliant that makes everyone feel so much safer apart from the shooter
TigerNod (author)  pinderfish3 years ago
Rofl. Touché, my friend.

hallo tigernod ik ben het hugo wil je voor me een trekker maken met uitleg en dan bij je gemaakte dingen zetten
TigerNod (author)  warking715 years ago
K, is de trekker van de OSNJCKMA2 ok?
ik vind deze gun wel handig hoor, maar misschien moet je het niet zo'n vet lange naam geven XD
TigerNod (author)  erikos kostarikos5 years ago
Het is niet mijn knex gun :-P
van wie dan wel? en waar kun je em vinden? (de instructable)
weet ik niet
ok..
CuddlesMcT5 years ago
the guns a bit too big. no way could you actually run around in a firefight while holding that thing. looks good tho . 4*
TigerNod (author)  CuddlesMcT5 years ago
It's not that large, really. Thanks for your rating.
this is awsome
TigerNod (author)  lego man 6555 years ago
Thank you. Did you rated it?
how vaguely can you describe the number of pieces used range? I wanna build this awesome thing, how did you get the knex bullet to spin as a sniper? 5*
TigerNod (author)  knex_mepalm5 years ago
1: about 100 purple connectors, 150 blue ones, and about 350 green rods. That is a lot :-) 2: Bullet spin out as a sniper? What are you talking about?
how about yellow?
TigerNod (author)  knex_mepalm5 years ago
It uses about 50 yellow connectors. Oh, and I was wrong about the greens: it uses about 450.
NIce, massive nice
have you worked a sniper before? The bullet spins out of rifle bullets.
TigerNod (author)  knex_mepalm5 years ago
"Sniper" doesn't mean it has to use the rifle rods.
ohk

Hey thats my scope :P hehe
TigerNod (author)  chombo5 years ago
Reaaly? I thought dsman made it: "It also got this cool scope that dsman made"
Mepain was the original author of the scope, dsman modded it for his sniper.
TigerNod (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
Thanks, I changed it.
TigerNod (author)  chombo5 years ago
Chombo, I want you to be honest. Is this really your scope, or is it from dsman. Cause I don't want to get even more trouble with the admins.

Nice!!!!!!!!!! One question, though- that looks like it's heavy. When (and if) you put the MG on, how're you going carry it? Or does it just look heavy?
TigerNod (author)  builder9685 years ago
It doesn't only looks heavy: it is heavy. It weighs as 5 or 6 dictionaries. But I can still carry it with ease. But I'm afraid that the MG will never come, because I don't have a lot of chain pieces. (±15 pieces of chain)

PS: I don't even think this gun will ever have a trigger. There is too much pressure on it to have a decent trigger, and besides I have no idea how to make one. Maybe it would be better if I placed the rubber bands on another place, but for now I'll keep it as it is. Oh, and thanks a lot for your reply; I don't get a lot of feedback. Maybe I need to post another slidehow of my other, even heavier gun...

The 2nd pic looks like an MG42!

He's right!
TigerNod (author)  ILIKEPIE3335 years ago
I didn't designed it to look like the MG42, but now you mention it your right!
ur right man
TigerNod (author)  knexguy5 years ago
Yeah, suddenly I realize how much it looks like one!
DJ Radio5 years ago
dang thats big!
TigerNod (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
I know, XD. That was the whole idea when I started building it!
