Introduction: 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.''

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

author
The Jamalam made it! (author)The Jamalam2009-07-20

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

author
DJ Radio made it! (author)DJ Radio2009-07-23

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

josse44 made it! (author)2009-04-09

author
lowe made it! (author)lowe2009-03-21

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.

author
The Jamalam made it! (author)The Jamalam2009-02-05

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

author
SonicX 22 made it! (author)SonicX 222009-02-05
