Intro: AA Sniper

Here's a Knex sniper, it's rather good in my opinion.

Step 1: Hopper and Barrel

I should give some credit to The_Burrito_Master for the concept (I have permission :P). I have modded it slightly.  

Step 2: Pin Guide and Handle

Construct.

Step 3: Butts

Yeah I got lazy. The pictures are clear enough though, this is an easy step. 

You can choose between the 2 butts.

If you are building the pistol, then check the last picture for reference.

Step 4: Put the What You've Made Together

Do it.

Step 5: Barrel

Time for that long barrel :D 

Step 6: Other Bits

1) Iron Sights
2) Rails (make the gun stronger)
3) Hopper cover (highly recommended)  
4) Pin

Step 7: Monopod

Uses a ratchet system. Push the yellow bar to unlock and use, otherwise it locks and doesn't move! Great success!

You can design your own monopod base if you like, I prefer the simple option.

Step 8: Firing

1) Load 6 red rods into the mag
2) Shut lid
3) Pull back the pin slide until the gun clicks
4) Pull the true trigger (or if you want push the block trigger)

If the shot fails (very rare), the gun is installed with an access hole so the bullet can be pushed back into the firing slot easily. The hole is located above the barrel. 

Step 9: Coming Soon...

True bolt action pistol :D

    Best gun I've ever built, but the monopod bend and breaks a lot, even with thickness mods.

    Never heard of it, but after a quick search are you talking about Beameron's? It's basically the same as any gun with a removable mag, just skinned to look like a sniper rifle. Therefore, build it if you like the looks of it really

    Wait, if you don't want to build it and want to make your own gun why did you ask me if you should built it? I would recommend taking a look at some removable mag mechanisms though if you're not too experienced with them

    I built this and it is awesome, but when I shoot it a lot of the time it tries to shoot two bullets and ends up shooting of the mag wall and the iron sight. Any suggestions?

    To stop it shooting two bullets, try using a simple mag pusher, or make sure the magazine is fully loaded. What do you mean by "shooting of the mag wall and the iron sight"? Is that supposed to be "off"? :P

    Well you're wrong: This uses no modified pieces (unless you're referring to the AA Sniper, which does. The True bolt action pistol does not though)

    nice fast comment thank you! thanks your right your reply made me look closer at it. i thought that the furthermost lower left hand orange connector was broken. it really is just a white rod and i thought is was the backround. ps if i make this from this pic or from KI can i post it here? its ok if you say no cuz i might not get around to it but whatever

    FOOL! Nah I kid you, looking at it it kinda does look broken! And yeah, it would be cool if you posted it: Cool Bas3 posted a forum topic here, but of course a proper instructable would be awesome! When you build the gun from Cool Bas3's forum, read ALL the comments by me, I've pointed out all the errors in his instructions: But you gotta give him credit from building the gun from only 2 photos!
    If you do post an instructable (which I hope you do!), please make me a collaborator so I can fix anything wrong with the instructions! Thanks!

    Well I never experimented with different bands: basically the more power: the more range. However, too much will cause this (and any slingshot sniper) to snap. I have to admit this sniper is fractionally more brittle, but Axiys ZX said he got 200ft with it, which in my opinion is more than enough lol

    in my house, we have a hallway, one end is a wall, the other is a window. i approve of a guns rangewhen i have to stand at the window end and shoot at the wall so i dont break the window. example, i got dj radios xbow to shoot about 50 feet. my hall is about 35 so for that after first test it went outside

    Fail on my part, when I wrote that comment I thought it was on a my Slingshot sniper, so 200ft is believable
