Knex Revolver Pictures

***THIS IS NOT A PRIMARY WEAPON, BUT A SECONDARY. I am tired of people nagging me about it, it's a k'nex gun that shoots as far as any other powerful pistol, but the main thing I'm emphasizing here is QUICK RELOAD and RELIABILITY (no jams, mag pushers, or anything to get between you and your challenger). It's just a handgun that I slapped a stock on to look cool, so you can stop telling me that some kid's sniper is better or deconstruction round guns are things of the past because that's just your excuse to put me down. I'm not complaining, I'm just stating the obvious.

1. The whole gun, stock, clip, mech, and all.
2. This is with the clip on.
3. This is what it looks like when you take the clip off.
4. This is a front view of the clip the gun uses (I didn't show any empty clips, just take all the white rods off for an empty clip.)
5. And a side view of the clip this gun utilizes.
6. This is what it looks like when you hold it... The handle looks like crap compared to the TDS but actually is very comfy, as the white rods stick out around your fingers.
7. The retarted FPS angle that everyone seems to love.

Stats (KI Template):

Type: Revolver
Weight: N/A
Ammo Type: White or Green Rod
Range: N/A*
Firing Interval: 1.5 seconds
Mag Capacity: 8 Rounds
Mag Reload Time: 2.5 seconds

*This one really depends. A newer white connector will not shoot as far as an older one since the older one will release the white rod easier. That being said, mine shoots about 20-30 feet with a single #64 rubber band at a slight upwards angle with an old connector. Not bad! Sadly, it does not auto-revolve, but there are no clumsy mag pushers poking at you, and while it takes longer to cock and shoot, the reload time is VERY fast, you disconnect a connector and connect a new one, so if you're fast I'd say 1-2 seconds. Also, if the annotations get in your way just click the white "i" at the top-left.

EDIT: New double-cylinder. Slightly slower than reloading regular single-cylinders, but easier to carry around.

7. A picture of the gun with the double-cylinder.
8. The new clip, by itself.

New Round:
Mag Capacity: 16 Rounds
Mag Reload Time: 2.7 seconds

Yes, I know this design is relatively old. Yes, I know other people have done this. This is the first to feature a design specifically for detachable clips.

This may not seem like much, but it reloads extremely fast, and with the double-cylinder design, can outlast any pistol in a firefight. Why? Well, for one, as opposed to loading in each bullet individually (if you use post-it notes they can clog up your gun no matter how you put them in), this comes in packs of eight and sixteen.

Also, there are no rubber bands for the clips, so no jamming, no mag pushers, and no friction from the bullets.
If you rush and slip up with a "regular" gun, you potentially have a broken clip, or bullets everywhere, or a jam. With this, the only punishment is a longer reload time.

Also, while conventional knex gun clips have a lot of pieces, a single-cylinder clip has MORE ammo pieces than non-ammo pieces, and the double-cylinder clip has very few pieces as well. This means you can have more clips built, and the number of bullets you can hold expands exponentially!

So again, while this couldn't fight soley against the SwagBoss, or the Knexsayer, or big knex guns, I would put my money on this above any other sidearm due to its reliability and the fact that its reload time is super short.

Take the stock off....it does not belong there.

Cool. It was a work in progress. It's my gun. I can do whatever I want with it. Thanks for the input though. I'm building for the fun of it, like people should be.
Understandable, yes. I sounded too aggressive with that, but honestly, it detracts from the look and usefulness. Especially since revolvers don't have stocks, and that one looks a bit unreliable anyways.
DB2016 (author)  apples!!!!!5 years ago
Yeah, I guess revolver wasn't the right word. I used up about 80%of my pieces on this, and I wanted an 8-shot without a piece-consuming magazine, and I wanted it to look like an assault rifle of sorts so me and my brother could have some good-natured fun together. I understand what you're saying, though.
And I can agree with that completely, that's the way it should be done...we are working with toys after all :P but still, when you present it to a community of people(especially this one lol), you're going to get some criticizing feedback and that stock is something that doesn't really make sense in the given setup. And that's okay, but only if you don't say that it's supposed to be something(in this case, a revolver or a handgun) since neither of those have stocks. Ooda's post covered it best, honestly.

Meh. I took it apart, anyways. To be honest, I only use k'nex as a model for something I'm drawing, not to make guns in a war. This was purely for fun, but APPARENTLY some people can't understand that *cough*DJ*cough* but oh well. Thanks for taking the time to understand me.
I don't design anything for wars either honestly, I just like working with mechanisms and things like that. K'nex wars are actually a bit silly in my opinion... >.> anyways, just keep it up and be creative about it, and you'll be fine on here.

Thanks! I know what you mean. I literally laugh out loud when I see all of those older kids running around with plastic little snap-together guns. I could fling a piece harder and faster than they can with most guns... And my hand is semi/full auto. SO HAH.

This revolver design has been done before and is already inferior to turret guns.
DB2016 (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
It's more piece efficient, it's lighter, it has faster reload,... I'm not saying in a 1-on-1 battle this would beat the Knexsayer, but it's a very efficient revolver design that could be used in many, many ways. Putting a turret-revolver on a pistol is clunky and slow, but putting one of these on has said advantages over conventional mag-fed guns and is very piece efficient.

I know it's been done before. That being said, this is the most polished and battle-ready one yet in my opinion.

Not to mention it surpasses your guidelines for a first knex gun.

But thanks for the input.
