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





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

About: Figured it was high time to give this a quick edit. I was an active part of the K'Nex community from about '08, I still occasionally lurk. I did a lot of dumb stuff on here but I'm past it now. I'm currently...

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.''

    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


    Is the range more or less than 70 ft? 

    Oh, well then. never mind my comment! 

    :( nvm i cant hilight it but it is pretty easy
