Picture of WW2 Springfield

Springfield Final First Person.JPG
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.

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?

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.
