DM-15 bolt action sniper Answered

well, all the great K'nex gunners have snipers(besides oodalumps , but his semi-auto makes up for that :-) ), so I thought i would make one. its nothing really new, nothing innovative. Just that it has a bolt to pull back the ram, that allows for rapid fire. It's could be as powerful as the other snipers but i can't put to much power because i have to pull the ram back with one hand(i am wimpy so you guys will have more power). it has a 9 round mag that could be extended if you wanted. Has a block trigger hooked up to a true trigger. The front is just a make barrel. Bipod folds up and hooks onto the front of the fake barrel. i am sorry that the bolt is hard to see in the gun, it on the right side. only the left side is shown in the first two pics. its in the third pic but is kind of hard to see. it works by having a "door" in the side of the barrel for the bold to travel in and out of. the bolt need tape because the orange connectors would come off instead of pulling back the ram(the ram is the same from the pack sniper). it has just your basic scope on it, nothing to new on that part. yea, i think thats it. instructions are being made.


are instructions still coming?

no, sorry. i had to take it apart. the insides just had to many little parts, it would have been to complicated and taken a long time to make the instructions.

BUT i have made a new gun, compact assault rifle to be exact. i it is very powerful(shoots through 3 layers of cardboard with 3 rubberbands) and uses little pieces. i have pictures of it. it has around the power of the morretti but uses a fraction of the pieces. this will have instructions, i have worked to hard and put to much into this gun to not post it.(some of my blood is on that gun!)


i kinda already made one, lol. urs uses less peices though.

you mean your compact AST rifle? this one is way more powerful(just guessing from what i know), the newest moded version can shoot through cardboard with one rubber band on it, and shoot through cardboard from 15 feet away with 2 rubber bands. it gets all this power from a new idea i put into it, it essentially does the same thing as some gun like KILLERK's pistol, but in a different way that resolutes in less friction.

single shot? lol, urs is probobly stronger because mine has a hopper. and ur new system

yes, single shot, but that is because when i had a hopper on it i shot it once and the hopper exploded and one of my cut orange connectors broke in half, i could put a hopper on it but it would break pieces every shot, witch then would have to fix it every shot making it take longer to load.

yer it's ok.

Are you sure its a true bolt action? In order to be a true bolt action, you must pull the bolt back, and push it forward to load. If the gun doesn't require that you push it forward, it isn't a true bolt action.

what about a gun that you pull the bolt back, push it forward, then pull it back all the way? is that true bolt action?

if you just push the bolt forward, is it true bolt action?

(you just like picking apart other peoples work don't you?)

you said:
If the gun doesn't require that you push it forward, it isn't a true bolt action.

the gun does require that you push the bolt forward, but not to load the gun. you need to push the bolt forward so you can shoot. if you don't push the bolt forward then the bolt will hold back the ram, and you won't be able to shoot.

Haha, I just like to make sure people know what they're talking about. If it works as you said, I think it would be considered a true bolt action then.

well, some definitions need to be moded to work for knex. there is no reason that the bolt would chamber the bullet for knex because knex have no shells, nore have gun powder that would need to be in a air tight space to propel the bullet. also, because how many block triggers are posted saying there "bolt action". this is a true bolt action.

well, i have seen on KI that that is not a true bolt action anymore. i came up for a name for it. a fake-bolt-action. thats what our guns are, but thats not a bad thing!!!

i made a true bolt action l96 also im posting it a the first true bolt action

sure its a private project so give me your email and ill send you pics just telling you it requires braking one white rod

o yea i have done that before, upload the pics and give me the links to them.

ahh, don't get down in the dumps, I have a idea. as we know, most of the knex community is dieing. so we just wait for it to die and then come back and start a new generation. we would be the ahem "mepains" of knex.

very good idea the only problem is that the knex community isn't dieing its thriving on ki,i hate ki

Sweet! I love these new updates I can't wait!

when do you think u will post im dieing to have it

i don't know. i have to make instructions for my entrant for the KI contest first. if you want, i would take pics of the inside for you to build. the rest is not that hard.

sure that would be awesome take of the sides of everything so i can see the inside

ok, i have some pics of the inside, i will take more later.


hey would it be any trouble to just rebuild and take better pictures don't if its a lot of trouble

hey i might try to make now its really not to hard looking so do i have permission to post if i do build

O yes! please if you do make post it! just take note that there is a broken orange connector on the mag.

two are like that. but if you look at the left side of the mag you will see a orange connector with the connector parts broke off.

wait are you sure you dont have any more pics of the side off that would be so helpful i cant see the mag

well i don't wanna take any chances of getting it messed up sorry for the trouble
