Introduction: The Knex R700 Sniper Rifle

Picture of The Knex R700 Sniper Rifle

Yes! its finally here, my most feared instructable! The R700, i had a barrage of good comments in my slideshow about this gun, and as I said i posted it.
looks good and realistic
shoots far (80 meters = about 240 feet)
quite comfy
nice scope, according to most people in the comments at my slideshow
NO modded pieces
quite long (this is a pros and a con, because it can be hard to hold but it has more firepower)
quite heavy
quite hard to pull the trigger
so powerful you can damage alot of stuff, even people (believe me, i know, i accidentally shot myself with half its power and i was bleeding quite a bit (lucky for me, it was my left hand)
really hard to build

I didn't make a bipod because i suck at makeing those, u can make yourself one if u want

in this instructable its is important to read the text written like this, it will help you.
ok done with pros and cons, on to the pieces list and the build (in which you will lose your fingers) good luck

The Stock is one of the most sturdy things in my sniper
1. what you are making
2. make, they are all the same, these plates are plate 1 for this step
3. make all of this, there are 2 different sets, these sets are plate 2 for this step
4. collect (11 blue rods)
5. grab a plate 1 and add the blue rods
6. put a plate 2 on
7. add a plate 1
8. add another plate 1
lost your fingers already? if not, prepare for the hard part
9. add a plate 2
10. the most hardest, add the last plate 1
if you still have your fingers good job
anyway, yaay! we are done with step 1!
onto the handle

19: make this
20: this is the trigger, make it, next pic is an other angle, read the image notes!
21: an other angle
22: put a blue rod in the orange con, and two blue spacers on the blue rod

Step 8: The Scope (not Required)

Picture of The Scope (not Required)

ok the scope, it was too hard to take apart, so I took as many pictures as I could to make it as clear as possible
1: what u are making
2: make and collect
3: close up
4: the entire scope without the wheels in the notes are the numbers of pieces you need to build it, so if u want a detailed instuction, read the notes
5: the front
6: different angle of the front
7: the back
8: different angle of the back
9: the half part of the scope
10: the middle
11: different angle
12: the wheels u need (3 smal ones is 1 big one)
13: see? (explenation above)
14: see it now?
15: scope plus wheels and turning thingy
16: plus the holder
17: what u should have now
done, I hope u can make the scope right

Step 9: Assembly

Picture of Assembly

well, onto the most long part of this instructable, the assembly
1: what u should have now
2: take these
3: put some of the green and white rods on the stock like shown
4: put the handle on and put some more green rods and white rods in to lock it in place
5: take the trigger
6: take that part
7: remove this for now
8: put the big part on
9: and the small part in again
10: diffrent angle of what u should end up with
11: take the barrel
12: and connect it
13: take the foregrip
14: deattach the yellow con here like shown
15: put the blue rod in the remaining yellow con like shown
16: and put the yellow con back
17: remove this blue rod
18: and put it in here
19: then clip the foregrip on
20: what u should end up with (it is supposed to take shape now :D) READ THE NOTES!
21: bottom view of where u should put that
22: better view now right?
23: grab the bolt now
24: put one row on like so, look carefully! and read the notes!
25: put the part u removed last pic in here
26: and clip the other row of the bolt on
27: now grab the scope if u builded it
28: put the scope holder on the scope
29: clip it on
done!!!! yohoooo! (did u lose ur fingers :P if not than well done)

Step 10: The Elastics, Ammo, Loading and Firing

Picture of The Elastics, Ammo, Loading and Firing

ok, onto the elastics
1: all the elastics to lock some stuff in the foregrip in and for the trigger read the notes
2: were to put the elastics on the foregrip and read the notes for details
3: on the trigger read the notes again
4: Ammo and the elastics needed for firing there are 8 elactics needed for firing 1 bullet, wich u should make too, if u want to fire, read the notes for some tips
5: put the 8 elastics together to form 4 longer ones
6: to load, remove the scope (that is why it is connected to the gun so lightly)
7: take 2 of you long elastics like so
8: put them around the last blue rod on the barrel and stretch them a bit, especially if they are new
9: pull them to this side, around the yellow con, look closely!!!!!
10: pull them back and put them on a blue rod above to the orange con as shown on the pic, if ur elastics are new, let them be there for a while
11: top view of what u should end up with
12: put the bullet in the elastics with the tan clip facind down on the rod and pull it back
13: lock it in the trigger like shown
now, pull the bolt, push it back (not nessecairly) and pull the trigger to fire and you will get BOOM headshot if u aimed well lol.
if u want to fire on something anyway, try on some pillows or make a paper with a drawn face on it and hang it between something before a wall and shoot through it, i did this some times and it is fun, way more fun than bleeding alot or seeing someone else bleed alot.

Step 11: The End

Picture of The End

I hope u like my gun and have alot of fun with it, try not to go running through your house with a loaded gun, mayby it will fire accidently
ok, some credit:
gtrain for the stock idea
mrstealth for the firing mech (mine looks like his) and the barrel idea (same as trigger, looks like his)
anyways, I wish u luck on taking it apart if u are going to (trust me, i did for the instructable, it is a pain in the ass) and good luck on shootin alot of paper enemys


marioguy dude (author)2016-08-14

i didn't have enough pieces so i made it a rubber band gun that shoots rods

Knextremely stupid (author)2014-12-28

Then they wouldnt shoot back lol

EpicMinecrafter870 (author)2014-12-06

If it made u bleed, than this is dangerous weapon not in Knex wars. What if u shot someone in head.

mandzb (author)2014-08-19

Hi i have just made this gun but i cant seem to fire it please explain how the elastic band system works

knexmatrix (author)2013-02-15

I Made This Into A Rod Shooter, I Hope You Don't Mind

Of course, I do not mind. I always feel that anyone can make anything for one of my creations, like mods or extra's and post them, as long as ,if one posts my creation with it, they give me credit for what I made.

elwoodknight (author)2012-08-27

good gun. do you think you can take a look at my gun and see if youv got any pointers.its a bolt action type of gun 25-30 round mag with grenade launcher attachment and grip here is a link

tom732 (author)2012-06-14

hee hoe voorkom ik dat de kogel de hele tijd na 10 meter naar beneden duikt ?
hulp plzz
alvast bedankt ;)

headshothoncho (author)tom7322012-06-15

Dat kan alleen aan de manier waarop je de elastieken hebt gebruikt liggen, of aan de elastieken zelf. Er is een speciale manier van de elastieken om de gele -halve-maan connectors te draaien nodig, anders vliegen de kogels alle kanten op. zie stap 10 of 11 hiervoor

PotatoCoffee (author)2011-12-16

Looks great!

headshothoncho (author)2010-11-01

if anyone has an idea for a new gun (I prefer snipers) please, comment it and I will make it if I can make it and have parts and above all if i think it is possible
so please comment and i will react soon!

qwop (author)headshothoncho2011-11-09

you should make an sr_25! that would be sweet!

what about a low piece sniper, mag fed, possibly slingshot good range?

low piece? no. that wont work. for real good snipers you almost have to have quite a few parts to make it stable and enable it to handle lots of power. but mag fed sligshot does sound pretty awesome...

What about a Barrett .50 cal. Pseudo mechanism?
Or perhaps a Druganov-bolt action?

that can be a pretty good idea (barret) i will think about it. you will notice when I am going to make it :P

headshothoncho (author)2011-06-26

My vacation will arrive soon (YAY!) and I will have time for some projects again!
ofcourse, I will be going on vacation to Portugal, but after that I have about 4 weeks of time
My question to all you guys: Think of some guns for me to make :D
so far I have a few projects:
A secret by me only crossbow kinda rifle (no more details)
a Barret 50 cal (Idea By Fred The Evil Puppet)
and maybe a project together with lemonpickle (no gun or any idea yet to make)

So if you guys come up with some nice idea's I may be making them in the vacation!

Fred the evil puppet (author)2011-04-21

(intro pic: 3 & 4)
Dude, did you just run a marathon or something?

not a marathon, 3 and a half hours of hard training :P

Fred the evil puppet (author)2011-04-20

Is this essential?

No and Yes, It is essential if you want the gun to be realistic and stable, and have some nice comfort, but it is not REALLY needed, although I would advise you to make it

Fred the evil puppet (author)2011-04-04

i wish to put the stock on one of my snipers to post. do i have permission, or do you actually care about these things?

sure go ahead, just give Gtrain (for the idea) and me (the making and "improving) credit and it is fine =D

beanieostrich (author)2011-03-14

I wonder how this gets 240 ft. It looks awesome and it looks damaging to humans. You get 5* and a 8D for this gun also.

thnx! =D, and it gets such incredible range from the slingshot mech, I can fire just once per 30 seconds, but if aimed right, I got 240 feet outside in my street, wich is about 340 feet, and I mesured it (probably not exactly rifght, but global) and it shot (about) 240 feet, but it can be 210 feet or even 280 feet =D

Yp. I think I might have found the problems of my earliler snipers that used slingshot. It was the type of setup I was using. I now have an idea of what trigger i should use. I might make this gun, if I has that many yellow connectors. Then again I would miss my T.C.R. 51 Mk3 quite a bit.

bennyboy96 (author)2010-11-15

can you try and make it bolt action wiv a mag. if you can do that then ill deffers make it

sorry im a bit late, but you do realize that is quite hard do you? and ofcourse, i will try, but it is gonna take some time

i know it might be hard, but i cant im not good making it bolt action, i tried for like 4 hours lol. if you did suceed it would make the gun 100x better ;) probs the best looking bolt action on the web

BTW and for the record, the real gun DOESN'T have a mag. so im not gonna make one and im not gonna make this with a ram (or bolt), i am making a L96A1 right now that has a mag and a bolt (ram) and already works and im trying to make it REAL bolt action

sounds awesome ... cant wait for instructables

the instruction is done for the L96A1, and published

Dude, you know how much the bolt action bit takes away the power? like, 99.999999999 percent. But if you mean use a bolt on the Side to reload, then although it would be awesome, it is virtually impossible.

Hello again, I have tried make this bolt action, but it did not work out with this system, next week (in 5 or 4 days) i will be working on an L96A1 that I will try to make real bolt action. i hope when it is finished you comment what u think

you know, i will try this as soon as my vacation starts, than I have all time I want and do not have to stress because of homework. you will probably hear (or read in this case) when it turns out nice or is already working

adsies99 (author)2011-02-18

what i was thinking was some thing like a sniper with a shell ejecting mech if u can build that it would be pretty awsome

Knex Lego Maniac (author)2010-09-24

pretty good stuff man

It looks so much like your srv1!

DJ Radio (author)2010-09-25

Is this a replica or something?

headshothoncho (author)DJ Radio2010-09-27

yes, it is from call of duty 4

DJ Radio (author)headshothoncho2010-09-27


If it's from COD, there is a real life equivalent. Get a pic of the real gun and post it next to your version.

headshothoncho (author)DJ Radio2010-09-28

alright i will

Hey, this is almost exactly the same as the srv1-2! The barrel anyway.

xD, facepalm, lol, thats fun to do wen people dont understand concepts to well xD

smattman22 (author)2010-11-29

It's purdy


bennyboy96 (author)2010-11-05

does it only shoot elastic bands

no, a red rod with a tan clip on it, you can see it somewhere on my ible, probably in step 10

Lowney (author)2010-10-24

Nice Replica

Seleziona (author)2010-09-27

alright, I MIGHT build this, but tell me, does the trigger need tape?
