Instructables
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!

Pros:

-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!
-Accurate
-Looks

Con's:

-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.

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.

Rods:
-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

Connectors:
-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

Other:
-#64 Rubberbands. Here's the link. Another one, cheaper I found is here.
-Tape

 thats a Dragunov
Mr. Stealth (author)  ant ant 334 years ago
Sorry, but you are wrong. I modeled this gun while looking at a printout version of a VSS 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 will not trump those of a Dragunov. You tell me now it is still a Dragunov.
 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 :)
Mr. Stealth (author)  ant ant 334 years ago
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  to the rest of the comments below.

Why would I shut up? I was simple defending a false claim that was made on something that I did. As far as I know, this WAS a conversation between ant ant 33 and I. Nowhere did I ever mention your name or ask for your opinion. Further, you brought back a topic that was ceased a while ago and your contibution has no significant meaning to the topic presented. So please, in the future make a consciencious effort to contribute to Instructables.com, not produce immature, time-wasting comments that don't help your reputation.
 Yeah! whatever you say mr. stealth, your words are too big for me. I am gonna go rest my brain after trying to read that big ,scary, literately sophisticated text. OH GOD NOW U GOT ME DOIN IT!!!
You're so-not-smart. Unbelievable
Mr. Stealth (author)  ant ant 334 years ago
What?
He is trying to mock your win against him, by saying 'oh yeah, I'm so stupid I can't read your perfect grammar!'.
Mr. Stealth (author)  ~Aeronous~4 years ago
I was being sarcastic with my what.
With what what?
 forget it

 james4= legend :D
 OK OK BACK OFF, IM SHAKING IN MY SOCKS! IM SORRY IT WENT BALLS UP! LOL DONT FIND IT OFFENSIVE
Mr. Stealth (author)  ant ant 334 years ago
Nevermind...
 :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)

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...
 hhhmmm, you have to admit, they look a hell of a lot like each other though.
 LET IT GO PEOPLE!!!! JUST CUZ IM NOT A TOTAL GUN NUT!
Please don't take this as an offense, but your gun does look kinda like a dragunov which is cool to me.
