Introduction: The RBBAS V2.1

Picture of The RBBAS V2.1

Holy crap, I actually got that done fairly quick... Well, here it is. My huge, awesome sniper. The RBBAS(REALLY Big Bad@$$ Sniper)v2.1.It also happens to be my first attempt at an instructable...criticism welcome, as long as there is a 'list of shame'...
Ignore the first shot on the vid, it was a rare mishap...
v2.1 has an updated trigger than can now be used with more bands on it, a scope, and a slight mag adjustment.


-It's got a removable red rod mag that never jams(gotta tap on the pusher though...)
-True trigger
-Really good iron sights, and a scope(if you want)
-Swinging bipod that attatches to barrel when not in use
-Decent power(it has the ram pullback of the DD-27, while only using 9 connectors of friction....I'd say 30-40 feet with one double tied rubberband thats weaker than a #64)
-Scares anyone you point it at....


-Uses ALOT of pieces(for a gun)
-Barrel is a bit bendy
There you have it! LETS START!!!
I'll try a piece count in a bit...

Step 1: The Handle/stock Combo

Simple enough, I think....
I didn't have enough time to try and disassemble the stock completely, and i figure that it is relatively easy.....

Step 2: The Back Body/barrel & Trigger

Picture of The Back Body/barrel & Trigger

The body is split into two steps, each fairly large. Bear with me here...

Step 3: The Front Body/mag Chamber

This is the second part. A bit easier, I think...

Step 4: Fake Barrel and Bipod.

This is the barrel that has to rods stickin out, and looks cool...

Step 5: Put It Together!

Step 6: DONE!!!!!

Congratulations! It's not my fault if you do something stupid with it...Please rate and comment!

So I looked at this again, and d-a-m-n. That is one big blob of awkward, flimsy connections lol.

Oompa-Loompa (author)2008-10-02

Why don't you post more stuff? THINK FASTER!!!

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-02

Well, I'm not even on that much, due to school and the fact that my computer broke.

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-02

then still, are you even thinking of any other guns?

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-04

Well, I had a few ideas....but I forgot what they were.....I think a semi auto or something....mainly what I do is mod things that other people post and make them even better.

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-04

how do you not know what your own idea is?

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-04

Ok, there's the semi auto, a cannon that is not like all the other ones.... a tommy gun with working drum mag(Trauts made the thompson so I just stopped halfway)....a revolver that didn't jam with rubberbands on the actual revolver(looked ugly) uzi with removable mags that hold the ammo(got the mag working, but then ran out of time to make a body).....pretty much it.

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-04

Heck, post em all!

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-04

A)I can't B)I have none of them, seeing that I built the nanocannon c)I don't like to post things until they are the best I can possibly do...

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-04


apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-05

Well....I'm working on a Steyr Aug A1 right now....

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-05

Greeeaaaat, something else that'll use up too many pieces.

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-05

'Tis not that big, uses very little pieces; maybe half of the pieces this uses.

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-05

Amazing, and the bullpup mag is functional?

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-05

Well, I did sorta start it yesterday so....not yet, that's what I'm working on at the moment; I just need a block, ram, trigger, and then test it's basically a heavily modded version of the one that J-chode put up as a forum.

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-05


apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-06

Say that if the mag didn't work, would it still be worth posting?

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-06

As long as its got some kind of other true feed that doesn't mess up the looks. I hate giant elaborate single shots, because I could make one with a tenth of the pieces and still get the same effect.

infact, a mag-in-handle would be the perfect disguise! (Goes off to plot out next weapon) Seriously, you should consider that.

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-06

Well, I'm not going to give up on the bullpup yet, and the handle is not meant for loading, but it's a good idea...It's just hard to get a firing mech in without making the stock too long.

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-06

nah, I'm sure you could figure it out.

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-06

One can only hope.

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-06

I know you can do it, you're good.

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-08

Now I just need to hook up the trigger to the sears catch......that sounds fun...

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-08

Hmmmmmm. Once you have the main sear part built, the rest shouldn't be too difficult, am I right?

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-08

Right you are, in normal cases, but they are located 1 and a half to 2 feet away from each other....and nothing is the right length...and its in the way of where you hold it....

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-08

Oh, yeah, custom lengths are almost impossible with knex. I tend to build the length using as many smaller sized rods and orange connectors as I can at first, then continue to replace the smaller parts with larger ones to strengthen.

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-08

Well, nothing works, so what do you do when no knex works on things like this?

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-08

um, I trash the idea and start from scratch. Look at the trigger system, and if you can't make it work, take the trigger out and put a different one in.

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-08

LOL I have it figured, just wanted to see what you'd say. If you're wondering, the answer is string...

Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-08

Oh, I was thinking about typing that, but I wanted to see you start from scratch so I could laugh at you. LoL

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-08

Rofl thanks....

BuilderLoon (author)apples!!!!!2009-09-12

You should make a gun with detachable parts that would be cool :B BTW this gun is awsome

yerjoking (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-24

I can give you a trigger at the back, its really discrete, and never fails, plus its hooked up to one infront of the handle, it can be as small as a white rod apart of bigger than a grey.

apples!!!!! (author)yerjoking2008-10-27

Um thanks, but I already made one and took the thing apart, but I might be curious in a while when I try a FAMAS, if you'd like to collaborate.

yerjoking (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-27

I'd love to help you =] I have an idea for a new way to load a gun, using a new mag system and new loading system, could be as powerful as a single shot... But the portotype will shoot greens for now... I might try it, or I might try my old semi auto idea, which would you pick?

TigerNod (author)yerjoking2009-07-30

New mag system? Interesting...Can you tell me more about it or is it a secret?

yerjoking (author)TigerNod2009-07-30

It's old is what it is, lol. It didn't work well, and was hardly a mag.

TigerNod (author)yerjoking2009-07-30

Too bad... :-(

apples!!!!! (author)yerjoking2008-10-28

Well, the FAMAS is bullpup, so I suppose the bullpup one lol. I find working on bullpups fun, but so far I've only tried the Steyr and it was awesome, but weak.

yerjoking (author)apples!!!!!2008-10-28

Oh the comments above weren't for your idea, lol.

apples!!!!! (author)yerjoking2008-10-28

ROFL oops.....
I'll tell you when I can though, because right now I have no good computer for pics and whatnot so..............sorrrrrry............

erikos kostarikos (author)2009-09-10

when i looked at the first pic of the intro i thought: i can never build this...
but when i builded it i had a lottttt of pieces left=]

erikos kostarikos (author)2009-02-11

i like your gun and the handle, but should i post my new knex crossbow?
(it has a new real trigger mechanism!!!)
i think you guys like it and it does'nt take very much parts=]

masters101 (author)2008-11-20

nice gun

DJ Radio (author)2008-10-18

in response to "scares anyone you point at", i wouldnt be scared as long as i have my Assault rifle (v2)

apples!!!!! (author)DJ Radio2008-10-18

It was a joke, because it's big. The only time I might be frightened is if it was pointed at my face, because this hurts like hell when shot at you.

Oompa-Loompa (author)2008-09-06

LOVE the scope...

apples!!!!! (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-09-18


Oompa-Loompa (author)apples!!!!!2008-09-18

It's all, swirly... I made one with light gray 2 slots and it loox way narly
