Introduction: RSS Feed V2.0 - UPDATED

About: I'm your average Instructables Joe. When I build things in knex, I mod them to be as strong, reliable, and aesthetically pleasing as possible.

This is the second version of my sniper rifle. It is now five-layered, and much, much smaller. The handle is moved forward, so the gun and the stock parts overlap (they use the same parts, basically), thus creating a smaller gun, with the same barrel length.

I tested it out with red-rod sized slingshot ammunition and two tied 64-sized bands, and I got around 50 or 60 feet. It's not as good as the old one, and I need to make the barrel longer to get more range. The trigger is hard to pull, but it becomes easier with practice.

I will be posting this once I have the range satisfactory (around 90 or 100 would be awesome) and the barrel lengthy enough.

UPDATE: I have improved the gun. The stock is finished (it was lacking some minor details), the trigger is more reliable (now with guard, too!), the back handle connection has been removed, and the handle is now much more comfortable.  The entire gun is also carry-strap compatible, as shown. The range is also better due to the longer barrel.

    I made my own bull-pup sniper recently, as a proof of concept for a new trigger mech.  It makes the whole gun alot smaller, I know.

    I like that idea.  Did this get inspired off my OSSR2 or something?  I can see some structural similarity.

    I was going to build your OSSR2, but then decided to build this.  Yes, it is vaguely similar sturtually, but not really.

    Normally I'd post a comment here telling you what you were missing but this looks like a great gun.  The only thing my gun has that yours doesn't is a safety.

    Well, the bi-pod does not lock up, and I am no good with safetys.  There is also no good place for a safety.  Here are some more pictures:


    Man I could easily make your bipod lock up like on my gun, and I can't really tell from your pictures, but I think I found a good place to add a safety.

    I did not want to copy your bi-pod, so I made my own, as took alot of structural infuences from your OSSR-2 already.

    I don't really mind, the concept your gun has is really cool, it adds something original.  Just give me credit for anything you do use and I'll be a happy camper.

    Edit- Nevermind my comment about the safety, I enlarged the image and I see that the alignment is not good for a safety.
