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

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

WEAK!
the inventor (author)  smidge1476 years ago
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
I was saying the frame is weak!
the inventor (author)  smidge1476 years ago
even the frame is surprisingly strong unless your using really old knex then it kinda crap
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

ya, but sniper rifles have magazines
pates1 gijo915 years ago
not necesarely (i cant spell), some snipers you have to load the bullets manuly(cant spell...) and others are only single fire.
like breech loaders

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)  knexguy6 years ago
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
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.
Sorry for that..it does have its own forum topic, I guess a forum topic is not as 'interesting' as an Instructables :P
True, just post the gun when it's ready instead. Thanks for deleting the comment.

why did you just advertise on this instructable?

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