The Spartan a Knex Slingshot Sniper

Introduction: The Spartan a Knex Slingshot Sniper

About: Retired from instructables now. I am going over to YouTube so check me out at "knextreme productions"!

The Spartan is a knex sniper built for power and ease of use rather than accuracy and looks but it gets the job done well.

Power 180 ft +
Accuracy ok
Mech is very good

    I started it, and I am ready to end it.

    Accounting, huh? My Dad was an accountant. Are you planning on posting the gun in your profile picture?

    I said that ratchet guns usually don't get that range. The barrel on this is too short to get great range. Have you ever tried fin ammo??

    Yes, knex funs shoot that far. That or I am insane. I have gotten ranges like that dozens of times.

    First: normal rods will never get more then 80 feet. Ever.

    Second: to get long range, the shot must be angled.

    Third: the fin ammo must be skillfully built.

    Forth: I hate arguing about if knex guns shoot really far, or not. I hate arguing about if I have had a profile on this site. So how about we just agree that we have different opinions, and leave it at that. I have a gun coming up that has a DOP style trigger/trigger guard. I would like to know what you think of it when I post it, and not just argue.

    Anyone? Meaning you? LOL.

    But really, I doubt it just a bit. Ratchet guns, even with fin ammo, don't usually shoot that far. Pin guns shoot better for me then slingshots.

    It is okay but maybe you could try a new handle and some other things to make it better.

    I like it. Keep pumping them out!
