1. This is a close up.
2. This is the completed gun.
3. Add this, i forgot to add the second side of the mag.

Step 6: Adding rubberbands, loading, firing, and attaching to the holster.

Now you are going to add the spaceship to the banana, and learn how to load the phone and then fire the camera. I mean add the rubberbands, load the hopper and fire the gun. I need to work on my memory.
1. These are everything you will need.
2. This is the firing pin.add this in the back of the gun, you should see why.
3. Add the long ones over the top of the gun
4. Add this to the trigger
5. The gun is off the holster
6. The gun is now on the holster.

To load, get 6 yellow rods and put them to the left of the green connector wall, then put the grey connector back across so it is not quite attached. Then pull back the firing pin

Well, I hope you have fun with the storm 22 pistol. This makes for ideal carriage for a knex war, so i reccomend you use it. If you have any questions, comment me.

can the ball lock or w.e its call be replaced with the one with a nub? you know; like with a tan colored peice? thank you.
Tan clips have a bit jutting out, you can sand that down to get the equivalent of a blue clip.
no well it can if you cut off the nub

Somethings wrong with me, I can't stop modding this gun!
It's really addictive!

But now my parents have confiscated it cos my brother said I threatened him with it, which I didn't =( (much)

Problem is I'll have to canabalise it to build any other K'nex guns in the future =( O well, I'll have the memories.
The Jamalam (author)  roblin905 years ago
Ah shame :/ Means you'll be happier when you get it back though.

How much did you threaten him exactly?

It doesn't matter, you've got instructions for it if you need it again!
I didn't ACTUALLY threaten him, I was just waving it around un loaded and not charged, but my parents didn't like it...

Good point though I will be happy! =)

Great instructable! I thought you might like to see some mods that I made to mine, as I had some time on my hands and some more K'nex. Most of the changes are only for aesthetic appeal and aiming, but the extra elastic band I added increses the power significantly (!). I also designed a new trigger that can withstand the pull of stronger elsatic bands without snapping, I added more Grey and Buff 'guidence' pieces and made the handle stronger and longer. One disadvantage that I found was that it is now impossible to load the yellow 'bullets' in the right way, they have to be slotted in through the end :(

O yeah and I added a stand at the front for photo purposes only, 'cause it isn't very sturdy or strong.
The Jamalam (author)  roblin905 years ago
Nice gun! I think that if you wanted to you should post it!
I'll do that now. Can I add a link to your page to save me building the main part of it again?
The Jamalam (author)  roblin905 years ago
Sure! =D
Thanks! =)
