Template:Userarticle Snarkless[A term made by Entity Valkyrie, not used by any others] refers to an oscillator or gun that contains no snarks. All oscillators or guns made before 2013 are necessarily snarkless because the snark hadn't been invented yet.
Snarkless oscillators don't exist at period 43 or 53 yet because the only oscillators at these periods contained snarks.
It has been proven[please clarify] that all guns of known period can be made snarkless. A p52 example is shown below.
