717th Sniper

Post by Knight on Sun Jan 02, 2011 6:13 pm

I've always wanted to make a purist sniper with bi-pod, and I finally found a solution. Take two black (or bley) rangefinders, insert them into the vents of a technic pin, and bam! You now have a purist bi-pod. It looked odd having them at the barrel, so I added another rangefinder (Zeessi's technique) to add some length. This is also the start of my legion.

If you don't mind me saying, I've been working with the 707th as my legion ever since I signed onto the CABG, and it's my legion in the 457th on Flickr. Although I've never made an actual thread, this situation is quite... awkward. Wink

Anyway, I think the bipod is a pretty clever idea. However, can you extend the barrel and put the bipod at a 90 degree angle?

Good thing I haven't posted a topic yet. It'll be switched. The connection is very delicate, if moved. I haven't tweaked with it enough to answer that question. I'll look into it though. Smile

That bipod is very clever, but I also like what you've done as a purist with that clone. Good job. Thumbs up

Is that backpack a standard LEGO piece? I've never seen that before.

The sniper looks good although I would have prefered the use of the bley rangefinders for the bipod because the gun itself is black. Wink

Neither have I.

Also, best Bipod I have ever seen is the Brickarms official Bipod.

That combo of the clone w/backpack is pretty kickarse if you ask me. The bi-pod is nice too, I wish the legs could be on a slant though.

It's from one of the new police sets.

Do you mean angled, so the gun could be pointed at an angle, or the prongs being split at a 90 degree angle?

@- JP, The prongs can move forward and back, but can't be angled sideways.
@-Thanks for all the great comments everyone! Smile

Awesome sniper! Whenever i've tried putting in the antenna as a scope it just didn't look right. This technique is much more efficient. May I copy it? If not, it's fine.

That looks really cool and I found it to be rather inspirational. I tried it out myself and found that it suits the new ARF Trooper perfectly. I even went ahead to try and design another purist sniper rifle which looked as good as this.
