Introduction: TJSR-6

Picture of TJSR-6

This is my somewhat long-awaited sniper mech. I put it in a gun with a good strong barrel and comfortable stock, but for the most part this is just a gun to put a mechanism in.

Aside from this, the gun works very well and achieves easily the same range as the SRV2 if you put the same bands on it and had the same length barrel. It is also 5 layers thick, and has a barrel which won't eat up your yellow connectors.

Version History:
 * V1.0 - Failed.
 * V2.0 - Epic Fail.
 * V3.0 - Epic mega fail.
 * V4.0 - Posted, good range for a firing pin gun.
 * V5.0 - An attempt at making a new mech. This one failed.
 * V6.0 - Just a mechanism, worked very well and held the ammo in perfectly until the trigger was pulled.
 * V6.1 - A full gun, fired fine.
 * V6.2 - Big mods to the scope and grip.
 * V6.3 - A new stock.
 * V6-U - A cut down version of the sniper. Functioned the same, just with a wirestock and cut down piece consumption.

Use as:
War gun: Primary - 1/5. Its long reload time renders this useless in close combat.
War gun: Secondary - 4/5. If you want to be a sniper, great. Get a window!
Fun gun: Indoors - 2/5. You will break stuff. I broke a button on my blazer which I was aiming for.
Fun gun: Outdoors - 5/5. Incredibly accurate. Set up a "Coconut shy" type of thing, with cans and targets, and you have yourself a fun few hours outdoors.

Step 1: Handle and Trigger Mechanism

This is the core of the gun. The new mechanism is here, all that is needed to lock the ammo in place. It won't come out at all, until you pull the trigger. I'm sorry the pictures are bad, I accidentally deleted a couple when I was making space for more pictures. Also, the first pictures are terrible, until I found my camera.

Step 2: Barrel

This is purely just a place to put the rubberbands on the end. And to mount the bipod. You will also put the grip onto the barrel attachment.

Step 3: Stock/Butt

Stock/Butt. Exactly what it says on the tin.

Step 4: Scope

With a crosshair! Trust me, this gun is insanely accurate. I can hit a person from the other end of my garden. It's a big garden.

It's a bit bulky but it is better to look down because it is darker.

Step 5: Bipod

Just an optional part.

Step 6: Loading & Firing

So now you have a finished gun. But there still remains one question: How do I fire it? It's easy to work out, but just in case I have made a video for you people.

Step 7: Your TJSR6's

Seeing as this gun is so easily moddable, what did you make yours look like?
1) - Jamalam - Original.
2) - Jamalam - TJSR6-U


An Villain (author)2011-08-04

Are you perchance basing the U (TJSR6-U) on the AK-74U?

The Jamalam (author)An Villain2011-08-04

Yep :D

An Villain (author)The Jamalam2011-08-04

I believe the S (AKS-74) would have been a better fit as the U stands for Ukorochenniy (shortened.) It is the S (short for Skladnoy [folding]) which would have made more sense as that seems what you were trying to do, as the barrel is 15.5 connectors long in both incarnations. However your thinking may have been different, this is just my opinion.

The Jamalam (author)An Villain2011-08-05

My reasoning was that the AK-74U was a cut down version of the AK-47, so i would imitate it here.

An Villain (author)The Jamalam2011-08-05

I see.

kii-1 (author)2011-03-16

umm im a noob at knex guns :p lol
what dose it shot?

The Jamalam (author)kii-12011-03-17

There are instructions for ammo in step 6, it's fairly self explanatory :)

spricer988 (author)2010-05-09

 nice ACOG scope

Owenmon (author)spricer9882010-07-06

um.. whats that haha

The Jamalam (author)Owenmon2010-09-04

Adaptive Combat Optical Gunsight. Most people only know about it because of CoD, me included, but I at least do my research.

Owenmon (author)The Jamalam2010-09-04

yeah. and most people put it on guns like the UMP and SCAR-H even though the one in the game was designed for the 5.56 .223 NATO round. ;)

Sephiros (author)2010-06-20

This looks like a great scope. Is there a way to build it without those particular wheels?

mettaurlover (author)Sephiros2010-08-24

Yeah, use electrical tape. They're just for decoration on the scope.

rec0n (author)2010-06-18

OMG! This is the best gun ever! I built it, fired it, and it shot through my chair!

rec0n (author)2010-06-18

can i see that vital picture?

rec0n (author)2010-03-24

epic! i might take apart my z35 for this.

J Moneyman (author)2010-03-14

i cant figure out the trigger mech. can u post a pic?

cool bas3 (author)2010-03-04

Sorry,Can`t build it in metallics! Dont has enough orange connectors

J Moneyman (author)2010-03-03

is that the desert eagle's handle?

The Jamalam (author)J Moneyman2010-03-03


SavageSteps (author)2010-03-02

can we see down the barrel?whats inside to make crosshair

The Jamalam (author)SavageSteps2010-03-03

4 orange tubing connectors, as seen here:

DJ Radio (author)2010-02-12

So what incentive would I have to use this over an SRV2? 

The Jamalam (author)DJ Radio2010-02-12


DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2010-02-12

How's this more accurate?

The Jamalam (author)DJ Radio2010-02-13

It starts with a small slot which acts as a stabliser for the ammo. Finammo would work even better.

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2010-02-17

The SRv2 is basically sticking a rod in a slot as well.

J Moneyman (author)2010-02-15

awesome scope!=-)

thomaswatton (author)2010-02-15

very nice 5* + faved n  ive already subbed XD

bigdylan91 (author)2010-02-14

You got some weird feet there fella!

cerj (author)2010-02-12

 ????? i'm trying to build this but the instructions make no sense. i can't see where to put things. HELP!!!  ??????

The Jamalam (author)cerj2010-02-13

Sorry, I deleted an important picture. The front-top blue rod is where the green connector of the trigger mechanism goes, and the white rod on top of the trigger blue connector is slotted in where you can see the white rod noted on the last picture.

cerj (author)The Jamalam2010-02-14

 It's alright i've figured it out now lol

Mr. Muggle (author)2010-02-12

so, you think this gun could reach 500 feet? That would be awesome!

The Jamalam (author)Mr. Muggle2010-02-13

It depends how far you got the srv2 with equivalent barrel length and the same rubberband. I got around 300 ft for both.

Mr. Muggle (author)The Jamalam2010-02-13

but how does this mechanism work? the bullet is inside the barrel right, then how do you attach rubberbands to it?

The Jamalam (author)Mr. Muggle2010-02-13

Take a look.

Mr. Muggle (author)The Jamalam2010-02-13

I can't figure it out...

silentassasin21 (author)2010-02-13

Um isn't this katarkitos mechinism

Where is Katarukito's mechanism? I wasn't aware that he had one.

Well i guess i cant quite get you on this since katarukito deleted all of his knex things but look at mr steaths ww2 rifle it has it.

Close, but not quite. If I'm correct, it removes the problem of what happens if you turn the ammo even the tiniest bit once it's inserted.

cool bas3 (author)2010-02-13

should i build this in metallics?

The Jamalam (author)cool bas32010-02-13

Can you? That would be great!

cool bas3 (author)The Jamalam2010-02-13

i can,i build it the next week
but any new guns coming?

The Jamalam (author)cool bas32010-02-13

Dual turret rifle and a secret project. I won't tell you the secret, because it's a good idea that people will want to copy.

cool bas3 (author)The Jamalam2010-02-13

cool! wil it be posting soon?

Hiyadudez (author)2010-02-12
The Jamalam (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-12

It's pretty generic. Been done before many times as well.

Hiyadudez (author)The Jamalam2010-02-12

Well it's pretty much exactly like it.
