Introduction: Pineapplebob's Sniper Pistol
It's a sniper, it's a pistol, no! It's PineapplebobTheGreat's sniper pistol!
Okay, so here is my new gun. It started out as another sniper, but then I decided to take of some pieces to make it a pistol, then I didn't like the pistol, so I made it kind of a mix of the both. I was looking for something small but still pretty powerful. With two rubberbands doubled up, it reached 16 feet. I normally use four so it shoots past 30. The front portion of the gun is slightly tilted upwards, giving it the ability to reach farther.
Here is an exact piece list:
Connectors and Others
Grey 1-slots: 32
Grey 2-slots: 2
Y connectors: 6
Tan clips: 15
Grey gears: 2
Total 384 pieces
Step 1: The Handle
You really just have to follow the pictures on this one. The handle is very comfortable and actually holds strong.
Step 2: The Trigger
Once again, this is a pretty easy step. It's a nice strong trigger.
1: Gather these pieces.
4: Slide the blue rod in.
5: Make sure the red connectors are above the blue rod snapped in on the back (sorry for blurry pic)
Step 3: The Butt and Top Rail.
This step provides a lot of strength to the gun so it can withstand more rubberbands.
1: The finished product.
2: Gather the parts.
4: Make these.
7: Gather parts.
10: Make this.
Step 4: The Scope
It's really simple. There are 24 red connectors total on a gray rod.
Step 5: The Barrel
It's pretty basic, but holds up well.
Step 6: The Front and the Fake Barrel.
Here is the front of the gun and the fake barrel.
1: The completed project.
2: Gather these parts.
3: Connect here.
4: Connect this on again.
5: Gather these parts.
6: Slide the orange connectors onto the rods.
7: Connect the final side to make the fake barrel.
8: Attach the fake barrel to the other part that you just made.
Step 7: The Magazine Block
This part of the gun swings open and closes to block the magazine from falling off if the gun is dropped. It swings open so that you can insert a new magazine when you need to.
1: What you will be making.
2: Make these parts.
3: Connect the two parts that were together on the right in the last picture.
4: Connect the piece in the middle of picture two to the piece you just made.
5: Finally, connect the last two pictures.
Step 8: Magazine
It's a nice magazine, and it jams about 1/10 times. The pusher is a lot like the one from the FN Scar, so I'm giving some credit to the maker of that gun.
1: The magazine. You should be able to make it with this pic only, but there's another picture showing the side.
2: The magazine on the side.
3: The pusher.
4: Another view of the pusher.
5: The completed project
Step 9: The Firing Rod
The Firing Rod is pretty simple. First get a red rod and snap a grey 1-slot connector onto the end of it. Slide another red rod through the hole in the grey connector. There should be 5 silver spacers and 1 blue spacer on each side of the grey connector. Slide a gear onto each end of the red rod. Be sure to tape it together. Otherwise it will break apart.
Step 10: Connect
This step will show you how to connect the gun.
1: Get the parts from step 1 and step 3.
2: Connect them as shown in the picture.
3: Connect the barrel to the part in step 7.
4: Connect what you have so far.
5: Here's a close up of where you have to connect.
6: Connect the part in step 6 to what you have so far.
7: Attach the scope.
8: Attach the scope (continued)
9: Slide the firing pin in.
10: YOUR FINISHED!
Step 11: HOW TO's
How to attach the magazine Snap off the two oranges on the magazine block and swing it off. Snap the two green rods on the orange parts of the magazine onto the white connectors on the barrel. Replace the magazine cover and you're set.
How to load Pull the pusher out and set it on top of the magazine. Let the bullets (blue rods) fall into the magazine. The magazine holds a lot, but I suggest only putting ten or less because any higher than ten, it starts to jam a lot. Replace the pusher and you're set.
How to fire Pull the firing pin back and kind of bend it down until it catches onto the yellow connectors near the back of the gun. Make sure you don't pull it out of the barrel. Then pull the trigger and the firing pin will lift up and fire.
"How to place the rubber bands" Stretch rubber bands around both sides of the firing pin handle. Put them just about anywhere. Stretch one rubber band around the trigger and put it just about anywhere. Stretch rubber bands around the yellow connectors on the pusher. Pull it up to the white rod sticking out of the mag.
