Hello everyone! I have been working on this gun for a while, but never got the time to post it. So here it is: My version of the World War 2 Springfield. I added a scope on the gun that I found off of a site. If I do say so myself, it's my best so far.

I used the slingshot system again because it gets pretty good distance, but this time I used Katarukito's mechanism. It is an ingenious design. Don't forget to subscribe and rate!

Killer~SafeCracker made a review of the gun. You can check it out here.

-Power, I got it to shoot 140 feet. Silentassassin21 got it to shoot 235 feet.
-Very nicely designed true trigger

-Uses moderate straight, brown two-way connectors.

Thanks to:
-barrax for his criticism
-Katarukito for the firing mechanism
-Killer~SafeCracker for the review

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. Example: Since the blue rods are 3rd on the parts list, then they are the third picture.

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

-Small black/green rods: 166
-Gray/Black rods: 177
-Blue rods: 49
-Medium dark gray rods: 4
-Green/ Red rods: 1
-Black/ Gray rods: 6

-Gray, one-way connector: 4
-White, two-way connector: 3
-Dark gray, right-angle, three-way connector: 21
-Green, 135 degree, four-way connector: 4
-Half-moon, five-way connector: 132
-Brown, straight, two-way connector: 79
-Black snowflake connector: 50 (About half of these can be substituted for the blue 3D connectors.)

Odd Preces:
-Blue spacers: 6
-Multiple angle, blue/black connector sets: 4
-Y connectors: 19
-Female ball sockets: 2 (Optional, but can be substituted for gray, one-way connectors.)

-#64 Rubberbands.

<p>Made it this afternoon. Awesome replica! The firing system isn't working for me though. When I pull the trigger, it breaks off instead of shooting the bullet. Very realistic!</p>
<p>i finished the gun and i love it. It has nice performance and mine is silent.</p>
Nice gun BTW :D it is especially EPIC:
who who who who who! YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BADASS GUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
darn. Just got through the stock, but once igot to the trigger, i didn't have enough blue/black omnidegree connecters. :(
If Your still here then, awesome!
this gun is huge! <br>
I love this. So much.
I don't have the pieces:(
this gun is massive!
Hmmmm.....I wonder how the ammo locks in, with the SRV2, the bullet is locked in with the indents from the ammo being blocked by the indent on a blue rod. I have a feeling this is way different. What locks in the ammo on this one?
Great gun. <br>Its a master rifle. <br>But only the scope sucks. <br>
this gun is big!

Attention this is the 333 comment so you need to give me a COOKIE don't listen to annyone else you have to give me the cookie
I'm posting a kinda the same sniper but with slingshot system. And I'm very sorry, but this scope doesn't look like a real one. Amazing gun though
I have built this time and time again. It is a wonderful replica and a wonderful rifle. I think it is the best rifle on the site. At the moment I have it built in metallic and it looks sweet. Definitely a five star gun.
How many decepitated pieces?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Best republica ever........... Built it again...

amazin<br />
I have made it and it is fantastic!!! great firing to... <br /> Gave it a 5 star ranking.
Thank you!&nbsp;:)<br />
Is&nbsp;the Magnum bullet stronger than the normal bullet?
Yes. Because of the nail, it can withhold more force.
Oh, duh (late reply)
