The Storm 220 V1.7 Knex Bolt Action 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...

This is my brand new knex gun, the storm 220. It was designed for mainly looks, but it functions well, and has decent range. I am not going to say be nice, even though this is my first Instructable, because I think people are entitled to their opinion. This gun shoots around
75 - 80 feet with the right rubber bands. It is not that good compared to guns like the SR-V1, or the osnjckma2, but I tried my best. I also apologize for some of the photos' poor quality, however you will probably be able to find your way around this.

V1.0: I was messing around with knex and made a cool looking shape for a gun. It was originally a pistol, and shot about 5 feet, and had a block trigger...

V1.1: I added a longer barrel and a front hand grip. It loosely resembled a UHC 870 shotgun (look it up!), still no trigger.

V1.2: I added a better firing mechanism, and it finally had a true trigger! (yay!)

V1.3: I remodelled the back of the gun to give it a flatter shape, and added a stock.

V1.4: I added a bottom loading removable clip which held 10 shots.

V1.5: The stock received a complete rebuild, making it stronger and making the entire gun look better.

V1.6: I replaced the magazine with the clip from the scar assault kit here, and the gun fires even farther.

V1.7 I remodelled the frame a bit, and decided to stop modding it from then on, and finally post it

True trigger
Removable 20 shot Magazine (scar 11.0)
Fires yellow rods
Rough sight
Strong stock

Feel free to post any mods you have.
I hope you guys like it; enjoy! :)

    Typical noob: blames the maker rather than questioning the likelihood of their own building fail.
