Introduction: Riper Shnifle

Picture of Riper Shnifle

its a gun but its a cross between a sniper rifle and a normal rifle its quite powefull with the right elastic bands can go through polestireine this is my first gun so dont be harsh.

Step 1: Barrel

Picture of Barrel

make the barrel just follow the pictures make it in two parts its easier.

Step 2: The Firing Pin

Picture of The Firing Pin

once again simply follow the pictures

on the second pic the grey rods are bent it not because of the gun it because they old and the little bit with the blue spacers is a thing for dampening it so it doesnt destroy itself when you fire it.

on the fireing pin under the black tape is an orange rod connecting the grey rod to the slide i didnt take it all apart because i couldnt get the black tape off so youll have to look at the pic carefully for that.

Step 3: Middle Section

do i even need to say follo the pics again? damn i sed it

Step 4: Backrest

Picture of Backrest

this bit is so the knex doesnt dig in when you are pulling the fireing pin back

make or gather all the parts in the first pic

Step 5: Trigger

Picture of Trigger

make the trigger you will need some kind of string about 30 ish cm long you have to fiddle around with it until you get the tension right depends on what string it is and how long.

Step 6: Assembly

Picture of Assembly

just assemble

Step 7: Add Final Piecies

Picture of Add Final Piecies

make the green handle and clip it in like in the pic then swap the grey connector at the end of the pully for an orange one then slide apart the green connectors on the handle and slip the orange bit on the pully in also thread the string assembly through for the trigger

the last two pics are the rubber band positionings the first one is for small rubber bands and the last one is for large rubber bands simply thread it through the slot inbetween the two barrel sections. n your done

Step 8: Done!

your now the owner of the riper shnifle plz ignore the little thing on the end of the barrel in the pic it was a little attatchment i used for firing a small shotgun burst but it didnt work well so i didnt keep it.

actually if you took the time to actually make this gun you'd find out its quite powerful don't be such a dumbass and actually try making something before commenting

what happened to the "be nice" policy

smidge147 (author)the inventor2008-04-11

I was saying the frame is weak!

the inventor (author)smidge1472008-04-11

even the frame is surprisingly strong unless your using really old knex then it kinda crap

popomaster (author)the inventor2008-07-28

trust me, not to be a jackass, but the frame is actually very weak compared to how sturdy the more complex guns are, but good gun for your first gun, my first gun was a piece of crap

gijo91 (author)2008-06-19

ya, but sniper rifles have magazines

pates1 (author)gijo912008-07-26

not necesarely (i cant spell), some snipers you have to load the bullets manuly(cant spell...) and others are only single fire.

popomaster (author)pates12008-07-28

like breech loaders

knexguy (author)2008-04-13

Polestireine- lol! Well, looks like it would break in half if you picked it up, and what is the difference in this gun between a rifle and a sniper rifle?

the inventor (author)knexguy2008-04-14

believe me its stronger than it looks and this is different from a sniper because it doesn't have a long barrel like a sniper and it has no magazine

knexguy (author)the inventor2008-04-15

Then how does it turn into a sniper? Unless you are making a kit with an extended barrel?

That's great and all but don't advertise on other people's instructables. Make a forum.

Wicky (author)s0lekill3r2008-04-09

Sorry for does have its own forum topic, I guess a forum topic is not as 'interesting' as an Instructables :P

s0lekill3r (author)Wicky2008-04-10

True, just post the gun when it's ready instead. Thanks for deleting the comment.

Polestireine? Polyester? Polystyrene? There is a spell checker.
