Hey everyone this is my first instructable! (Confetti falls)

This is my Knex version of the VSS Vintorez sniper rifle. After a long time trying to make my own guns, I decided to make models instead. I saw this gun in Metal Gear Solid 4 and I liked how it was different from other guns. The VSS is a sniper rifle that is unique because it has a built in silencer. Yea, it's cool.

As for the Knex version, I used a slingshot system that throws the bullet. I used slingshot because then the gun would be silent, just like in real life. Subscribe if you want to. Thanks!


-True Trigger
-Pieces don't break
-Power, 120 feet, but according to Viccie.B1993 it can go 160 feet. Silentassasin21 said with killerk's bullet, he got it to go 235 feet!


-Uses moderate pieces (In my opinion)
-The rubberbanbs I use might be expensive, but if you think about it, it isn't that much.

Thanks to:
-Barrax for his plentiful criticism on making my gun look better. :D
-I Am Canadian for his criticism.

-Viccie.B1993 for the firing system.
-LordSnipe for his magnum bolt.

Step 1: Parts List

Here is the parts list. It would be pretty disappointing to build the whole gun and then figure you don't have enough pieces. The picture following the wheel will match the parts list. Example: Since the blue rods are 3rd on the parts list, then they are the third picture after the wheel. You do not need the wheel.

Remember: Colors vary in the world of Knex so look at the pictures if you have trouble.

-Small black/green rods: 137
-Gray/Black rods: 178 gray-150, black-28
-Blue rods: 56
-Medium dark gray rods: 6
-Green/ Red rods: 1
-Black/ Gray rods: 2

-Gray, one-way connector: 13
-White, two-way connector: 3
-Dark gray, right-angle, three-way connector: 46
-Green, 135 degree, four-way connector: 6
-Half-moon, five-way connector: 157 white-131, bronze-26
-Brown, straight, two-way connector: 56
-Blue, snowflake 3D connector: 14
-Black snowflake connector: 32

Odd Preces:
-Blue spacers: 8
-Gray spacers: 10
-Orange track connectors: 4
-Black gear knob: 1
-Tan connector clip: 1
-Blue connector clip: 1
-Multiple angle, blue/black connector sets: 4
-Y connectors: 39

stop spamming, nobody cares.
awesome 5*
Do you mind if I use this mech in a gun I am building?
they both look very simalar, i can see why they thought it was something else but this is still a great gun.
Wow. 5 stars, easy.<br><br>1. Great Instructable.<br>2. Great over all look of gun.<br>3. Great working gun.<br>4. Realistic scope.<br>5. Comfortable stock.
looks really sick!
lol i added a bayonet and found this relly accurate ammo(not winged). it fires relly streght now
Nice job man! I'm gonna snipe an annoying girl with it.
epic gun, but my fingers were brused when i was done :)
<em><strong>&nbsp;thats a Dragunov</strong></em>
Sorry, but you are wrong. I modeled this gun while looking at a printout version of a VSS&nbsp;Vintorez. I do admit that it looks like a Dragunov, but it is clearly a VSS. You cannot tell me that my gun is a Dragunov when most, if not all, representations of the gun are that more of a VSS than a Dragunov. You give me a list of why it looks more like a Dragonuv and show that the looks of a VSS&nbsp;will not trump those of a Dragunov. You tell me now it is still a Dragunov.<br />
Please don't take this as an offense, but your gun does look kinda like a dragunov which is cool to me.
&nbsp;<strong><em>ok ok chill out i just thought it looked like a dragunov and as i have never seen a VSS or whatever then i could only assume thats what it was :)</em></strong>
I am chilled. I just find it very immature when accusations are made with no knowledge of what they are making their assumptions about. If you would've thought about what you said before you commented about it and said something less negative, then I would not be typing this comment. I just find it really offensive when I worked so hard on this Instructable and someone just says something that is nowhere close on topic&nbsp; to the rest of the comments below.<br />
Nevermind...<br />
&nbsp;:D lol, i like your gun though whatever it is called, just like i liked your ww2 springfield (DONT HURT ME IF I GOT THE NAME WRONG OF THAT TOO LOL IM JUST NO GUD WITH NAMES)
Spot the difference.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> 1.Dragunov<br /> <br /> 2. VSS Vintorez<br />
A Dragunov is a heavily modified AK-47 that is used to snipe... A VSS is a specialized weapon, used by the Spetsnaz... the front 2/3 of the barrel is actually a silencer... (which Mr. Stealth pointed out) The VSS is designed to be disassembled and placed into a special briefcase, followed by being quickly re assembled... the Dragonov is an AK-47 modded for sniping...
&nbsp;hhhmmm, you have to admit, they look a hell of a lot like each other though.
<em><strong>&nbsp;LET IT GO PEOPLE!!!! JUST CUZ IM NOT A TOTAL GUN NUT!</strong></em>
just to say, this truly is the most realistic scope in knex today.
I agree
i agree
wow. this redefines awesome.<br>
not really that good though is it.
ok i built a rifle not yours but could the scope be off to the right.
Excellent work! Your scope is especially awesome, Knex scopes seem to get better every day!
I've builded it, and it's AMAZING.
I built this, but added the firing system from your springfield. ITS AWESOME!!!
Its epic with the Springfield firing system, Isn't it? (thats how I made mine, with the Springfield system)
I'm gonna try and make this with the trigger mech from your Springfield... I like that one better... anyway if it works do you want me to post some pics?
Just built it, DEADLY BEAST MODE AWESOMENESS! Using the other trigger mech allowed me to put flip up iron sights in the back of the gun, which makes it even better! 5*
this gun looks sick im building it when i have time il give you credit then again really good job looks niceknex forever until im old to get a air soft sniper rifle lol =D
im 10 and have a airsoft sniper if you get buy the mb03 or l96
Thanks to this gun i managed to make this gun but with a magazine and it shoots grey connectors with small green rods and its pretty cool. removable mag and such pretty much this gun but with a shooting mech and mag with bullets
This is an awesome gun! Especially for a first! 5*
Awesome gun!!!!!!
