Introduction: VSS Vintorez - Knex Sniper

Picture of VSS Vintorez - Knex Sniper

This is my first Knex Weapon. I am hoping to make more soon, once I have sorted out the mechanisms. I will be building Russian Snipers, as I favour them.

The VSS, or "Vintorez" is one of the famous weapons used by the spetsnaz, the russian secret service. This is a very good stealth weapon, and one of THE best semi-auto snipers around. With a silencer around the barrel and the ability to take the gun apart, with simple slides, the VSS is an extremely effective weapon.

My knex version of the weapon, replicates many of the Key features of the VSS. The scope has been made to dimensions, and the stock has also been made similar. This is my prototype version, it does not fire yet, but I am hoping to get it to soon. The weapon is extremely customizable. Shown in this picture, is the first proto mods pack, of about 3 I will release. Most people should be able to copy most of the mods anyway. They include:

-VSS Scope Modification
-Display Bipod (Can support for battle)
-Dummy Laser
-M4 Carbine Battle Grips

The weapon also has a comfortable grip where you put your hand in position for firing.

I will keep working on the design, and will hopefully post it, if I can be helped.

Thanks to -

Dutchwarlord - For base design (Will be changing that for unique purposes)
Nightfox939 - For M4 grips. Also temporary, Due to change.

I WILL be changing the stock, and arrangement of the magazine for a VSS style, but with these parts, the gun is extremely sturdy, due to the 5 layer layout.

not with that camera, bud, sorry

Furloy (author)2010-08-28

i think that if you are gonna advertize a lazer on it you should remove "This is a very good stealth weapon" because that is a failure i think f0ur and a 1/2 st*rs

spricer988 (author)2010-05-18

 nice scope

TigerNod (author)2010-05-15

I can see you have improved it! Good work, looks even better now.

bighead5454 (author)2010-05-14

isnt Kalashnikov the russian name for the AK-47 or is it the AK-47's maker?

TigerNod (author)bighead54542010-05-15

Mikail Kalashnikov is the name of the maker of the AK-47, but the "AK-47" stands for "Avtomat Kalashnikova" with the 47 standing for the year it was built (1947). So he named the AK-47 after his own name.

Good base design, make a good slide for it and fire away!

hedzup456 (author)2010-03-06

How do you make the sight?
I have made many knex guns but all have rubbish sights!
Please post an instructible on the making of the sight-Im desperate for a decent sight i can put on my guns!!

How far does this gun shoot?

shawbob (author)2009-07-24

If you do opt for a slingshot system then i would recomend the mech that Knex Stealth used on his Springfield of something similar as it is able to hold loads of weight (BIG RUBBER BANDS). I have it on my gun and it hasn't jammed once and has a "easy-to-pull" trigger.

knexguy (author)2009-02-03

Looks great, I too would recommend a slingshot. By the way, the Spetsnaz was shut down a long time ago.

TOMNDAN (author)knexguy2009-07-15

i agree it's a good mech + nice scope!

cobra 85 (author)2009-06-03

is the scope adjustable you no with the wheel thing on the top

RMConstruction (author)cobra 852009-07-10

lol. it's for looks, what the hell would be able to move in side with a gear??

Skreetsha (author)2009-07-09

Is this your first posted k'nex gun or your first ever built? If it's your first build, we'll all get PWND to sh#t! XD

deathshells (author)2009-05-27

you could use the firing mech off of the striker pistol, i love that mechanism because i was able to load up 11 #64's before the snowflake snapped. epic gun on its own! oh and please post this when you find a good mech as i wouldnt mind havin a crack at this one.

knexsniper1 (author)2009-05-05

out of curiosity, if this sniper looks so cool, why does it have such a low rating?

absolutfrost (author)knexsniper12009-05-20

because its not a working gun yet

charlie farthing (author)2009-03-29

ditch the site but apart from tht it lookes like a good gun

pls (author)2009-02-02

Wow this is your first?? Looks awesome!!

KillerRazor (author)pls2009-02-08

Yep. The only original part, is part of the barrel :)

pls (author)KillerRazor2009-02-08

Still looks great

knex phantom (author)pls2009-03-08

hai wats up homes...idk who u r

pls (author)knex phantom2009-03-08

Lol, nothin:p

KillerRazor (author)pls2009-02-08

Heh, thanks. By the way, barely any of this stuff exsists on the Vintorez, but It gives it more bulk.

connorty (author)2009-03-05


dutchwarlord (author)2009-02-02

i think that a sling shot will be the best because you can hold your battle grip (look to killerks sr v1 or the VSS Vintorez by KnexStealth for a nice sling shot mechanism)

KillerRazor (author)dutchwarlord2009-02-08

And it is one of most reliable, and powerful mechanisms about, as far as I've seen. Problem is, my modded gun is a little on the... Small side lol. Compared to KillerK's gun at least. I think i'll look at the other VSS vintorez again, to see if I can implement anything nice.

KillerRazor (author)2009-02-08

Yeah, sorry about that xD I have about.. 4 boxes of knex, Each very large tubs. But if you want large amounts of knex, Dutch's gun should give you something to laugh about O.O

KillerRazor (author)2009-02-08

Thanks for all of your comments. I excpected a LOT less support than this. I was looking at the slingshot system, but Amending Dutchwarlord's system to it may be somewhat a handful. Also thanks for the fact it is also full auto!! I swear that it was only semi. Meh.

KillerRazor (author)KillerRazor2009-02-08

BTW, built for sturdiness, not just the looks ;)

connorty (author)2009-02-06

cool but seen bettr

barrax (author)2009-02-06

it looks ok, but you missed these facts about the real gun: is fully automatic and semi automatic the silencer it built into the barrel

silencekilla (author)2009-02-03

post please this gun looks awsome

The Jamalam (author)2009-02-03

use the sipriani system from viccies rifle
