The Snipepup a Bullpup Bolt Action Knex Railgun


Introduction: The Snipepup a Bullpup Bolt Action Knex Railgun

About: Retired from instructables now. I am going over to YouTube so check me out at "knextreme productions"!

For starters this is a collaboration with dream wave and he will be posting his own version

I hereby present the snipepup a knex removable mag with internal mag pushers fed bolt action rail gun that can only be described as complicated, reliable, and powerful and is the sort of device that can only be thought up by a genius (dreamwave) and a complete idiot (yours truly) or a madman.

Now for the hard part how it works (each step as numbered will be with the pics as in step one will be with pic one and so on

Step one: (no pic self explanatory) put the bands on the ratchet mech

Step two : the round is picked out of the mag by the bolt

Step three: push the round down onto the second chamber

Step four: pull the trigger duh

Step 1: Pretty Pictures and Me Talking

Dreamwaves mech was perfect ( the bolt and mag) and it blends well with my mech to make the perfect compact sniping weapon.

Range:35-40 ft
Ammo orange connector green rod grey connector ( or in a pinch blue rods)
Mag: 8 round removable internal pin pusher

Special thanks to dreamwave for putting up with me for the week it took to make this gun and also for being a knex mech genius LOOK OUT FOR HIS VERSION (with a different mech) AND DONT FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE AND FAVORITE FOR BOTH OF US

    making mine with a real trigger sear for really good response

    This is pretty cool. Glad you and dreamwave could make it work.

    Lol I just saw the intro to the ible :P You were the one who made the slingshot first, I'm practically just refining that for mine so you definitely made the actually working part of the mech.

    I'll post mine tomorrow, I'm getting in the 50ft range area with it and very quiet but need a new handle and trigger system, maybe some more reinforcement of the frame

    currently it looks like the railgun in metal gear solid meshed with a salad spinner and that Bullpup heckler and Koch gun that never made it to prime time

    YAY! looks awesome! The rail right there makes the mag seem to fit just flawlessly.
