 people on you tube and instructabels are cluesss to hwot big a foot is. a foot is about the size of a 30cm ruler. if a gun could shoot 200 feet or 50 feet, evrey war would be over.

Hang on, range plays nearly no part in a war. It's all about accuracy and reliability.

The Jamalam (author)buttons032009-11-14

Well they do, and my knex wars aren't over. 50 30-cm rulers isnt that much. Nor is 200 in the long run.
50 ft = ~15m
200ft= ~60 m

Not that much. You can run 50m easily in about 6-10 seconds

Im older and more experienced then you so shut up!

My gurss as to why you were on the roof was to snipe people.

daltonsmith (author)2010-05-06

the bullit spin`s so no way it shoot`s 200feet

It gets that range because the bullet spins. Spinning of a bullet is good it make it aerodynamic.

omohyplex (author)2009-09-11

Im not being rude or anything, but to me it looks more like the sniper on Halo 3. other than that, the gun is great!...except it can't shoot 200 feet because that would just be insane.

i was using surgical tubing when i got that range

Surgical tubing hey...i might try that =D

Buzzsushi (author)2009-04-26

you shouldn't expect that I know how to make it just from the pics

Tahsis (author)2009-03-22

I feel so stupid not understanding how to put this together... I need instructions as precise as legos...

noklon (author)2009-03-08

that doesn't even look like the gears of war gun

well i dont see you posting anything even close to as cool as this or as close as a model to this

are you on drugs this thing can't shoot 200ft and it doesn't even remotely look like it, then what you did is changed it to that l96 you have

yeah i am im on prescription head ache pills

i made the basicaly exacy replica of the real one it shoots 50 and very powerful i will have it on soon just what til i show u how to build knex lol

im building a knex sniper right now that is longer than benfoxgs sniper ill post it soon

DJ Radio (author)2008-09-22

i dont know how this thing could shoot 200 feet with a firing pin. unless you had 5 rubberbands and shot at a 45 degree angle

silentassasin21 (author)DJ Radio2008-09-22

well one question for you how did killerk get his pistol to fire that far

DJ Radio (author)silentassasin212008-09-22

with a ball joint connector

silentassasin21 (author)DJ Radio2008-09-22

nope i got 200 feet out of the pistol with out it

DJ Radio (author)silentassasin212008-09-22

wtf, thats crazy! ummmm it had the firing pin lock, that right?

silentassasin21 (author)DJ Radio2008-09-22

ye that just made it so it wouldnt fall out if over power

DJ Radio (author)silentassasin212008-10-11

how then?

silentassasin21 (author)DJ Radio2008-10-11

he got it by looking at other barrels and studying and then he made his own low friction barrel and my barrel happens be low friction

DJ Radio (author)silentassasin212008-11-24

Well, There wern't many knex guns around when he posted his, so i dont think he could study other barrels.....

silentassasin21 (author)DJ Radio2008-11-24

well there was like 10 out there

DJ Radio (author)silentassasin212008-11-24

Most were RBGs. The rest did not have a very good barrel...

benfoxg (author)DJ Radio2008-12-31

hate to break it to you, killerk edited the video to make it look like it shot 200 feet, but it realy gets around 70-80 feet =)

FrOnTLiNe (author)2008-11-26

I noticed the scope on the sniper in gears of war is sort of tilted. Nice instructable 4/5

bakenbitz (author)2008-10-30

Looks nothing like the GoW sniper.

Knex Lego Maniac (author)2008-10-28

50ft max

well i got 200feet so yeah

jellybean10122 (author)2008-10-26

can you make a video of you firing, i'm sure it is a good time but many people say "yeah, I shot it once and it went like 150ft!" It seldom does.

i dont have the gun any more if you read prevously made comments

sorry, i should have read further. thanks.

its alright alot of the time i do that

king1000 (author)2008-10-27

great gun but i had to destroy my other gun to build this one, and the side loading thing makes it so much easyer to load, good job 4.5 star

king1000 (author)2008-10-23

does it really fire 200 feet

silentassasin21 (author)king10002008-10-23


Austin101 (author)2008-10-16

could you put more pics how to make the barrel body and barrel extentoin

i dont have the gun any more and if you cant build it from this quit seriously it doesnt get any more simpler

statified (author)2008-09-24

can the yellow connectors be replaced with anything? i have 75.

you dont have to fill in the gun that will take off more than 50

wicked thanks.

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-09-22
