    Oh yea I meant to mention this, but how sturdy is the barrel? If it's fairly sturdy I'll use this layout in future builds, because I've yet to find a layout that is sturdy enough to hold long barrels like this. Still looks epic either way.

    Not very, but if you want, after I make another gun for a contest i'm gonna enter, I could make a gun with a sturdier barrel for you. I kinda focused more on the stock for this gun.

    Ok. I'm actually gonna work on a gun shaped like π, for the PI/E contest, not for a knex contest.

    Very good looking, and great stock! I have built several guns like this, but they never had sights, like this. The handle looks quite comfy.

    Just a hint, if you want to blast though soda cans full of water and slice cardboard at close range, use a red connector and grey rod put together, like in the siperani rifle. I believe that you have built that gun before.

    The thumbnail picture is really nice, when you see it you want to click on the ible and see the stats and stuff, which is very good.

    No problem.
    Just be sure that if you are trying to get good range, use oodammo or the siperani rife bullet with a white rod instead of grey.

    Cool, reminds me of a sniper I built a few months ago.
