Introduction: The Storm 221 V1.4 Knex High Range Low Accuracy Rifle

Picture of The Storm 221 V1.4 Knex High Range Low Accuracy Rifle

Hi guys, this is my second instructable, not including my slideshows, and also a second installment of the 5 (hopefully!) versions of the storm 220 series. It is actually quite accurate, and has a decent sight.

Version history
Storm 221 V 1.0: An extremely hard to use block trigger rifle, with no front grip

V1.1: Having destroyed my machine gun (which, by the way, I miss *sniff*), I had the pieces to make a hand grip and add a true trigger.

V1.2: I added a side loading hopper, which somehow lowered the range of the sniper rifle considerably, even without any elastic bands.

V1.3: I removed the mag again, and improved the stock, having a few pieces left.

V1.4: I added a pinpoint mod to the scope.

I am not liable for anything you do with this gun, I have hurt people, and it will probably break objects indoors.''

Step 1: KSBF's Pats List. Again.

Step 9: Loading and Firing

To load, pull the firing pin back until the trigger arm locks in place, put a single yellow rod in the open side of the barrel, and push it forward slightly into the barrel. Then just aim, pull the trigger, and boom!

Thank you for building my second gun. If you have any questions, just post them here!

lol i remember i built this a long time ago and i would always hold the gun upside down to pull back the ram, cause i cant pull it with my left, too uncomfortable

slimshaddy (author)2011-03-20

how would you build the stock if your a righty?

The Jamalam (author)slimshaddy2011-03-20

Like I did here

slimshaddy (author)The Jamalam2011-03-20

~Z~ (author)2010-02-05

antonk (author)2009-01-04

FlutterTree (author)antonk2009-12-24

TheChemiker (author)2009-11-30

Your stocks or butts suck, but that is all.

TheChemiker (author)TheChemiker2009-11-30

Is there and itallics glitch on the page?

maalik (author)2009-08-06

The Jamalam (author)maalik2009-08-07

maalik (author)2009-08-06

nickyknight8 (author)2008-10-05

dude do you think you can scale this down i dont have muh knex pices. only 2 bins of like 450

The Jamalam (author)nickyknight82008-10-05

i dont know, maybe I could make a V2..

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2009-07-23

and the v2 uses even more than this, also it doesnt perform as good.

st j (author)The Jamalam2009-07-11

that would be cool

Sting Teddy (author)2009-07-20

Low accuracy is kinda realative??? Low accuracy compared to what???

The Jamalam (author)Sting Teddy2009-07-20

Other rifles, maybe? Lets face it, it just isn't too accurate.

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2009-07-23

Accuracy comes with the shooter, not the gun. The only accuracy a gun has is how easy it is to aim+fire it.

josse44 (author)2009-04-09

this gun owns all hardcore i had to make my own self ajustments cause some things didnt work like the trigger the white rod slide out of the grey connecter then other things and could i use spacers for innards in stead all those tan connectors i ddint have enoguh

An Villain (author)josse442009-07-23

no, you could put spacers in between the tan connectors though.

sprygamekiller (author)2009-06-26

i want an easy to make sniper

Raiden97 (author)sprygamekiller2009-06-29

The Jamalam (author)pie25x2009-04-12

What do you mean "Send me another sniper gun?"

pie25x (author)The Jamalam2009-04-12

Another type of gun. Something like the ones you made but easier.

josse44 (author)2009-04-08

The Jamalam (author)Raiden972009-03-22

Raiden97 (author)The Jamalam2009-03-24

ill try to build it

SonicX 22 (author)2009-02-04

NICE SNIPER! i might build it if i got the pieces

lowe (author)SonicX 222009-03-21

that is a fake barrel. There is so much friction I cant even get it to shoot out of the barrel. I took off the barrel and put on rubber bands till i thought it would snap a piece, shot it, and it went 5 feet.

The Jamalam (author)SonicX 222009-02-05

DONT! Build my tjsrv4 instead it shoots further and works better

SonicX 22 (author)The Jamalam2009-02-05

it has too many pieces this one looks cool

micahmojo2 (author)2009-03-17

dude whats with pic four??? do you think you could send me a little video of how to make it?? my email is cool gun :P
