too many pieces- could you make it much smaller? i built one with only 94 pieces and it still revolved, but with a rubber band. it still could shoot 30 ft. and had 8 shots!

daredevil499 (author)2012-12-11

May I use this revolver on my new gun, I am going to post it soon.

paddyback (author)2010-10-20

what is a tan rod

Metalbox (author)paddyback2011-01-21

reinforced red rod

KnexMaster51 (author)Metalbox2012-08-02

The 'tan rod connector' is the little tan coloured piece with a small rod on it. Shown in the bottom picture :)

knextreme1996 (author)2011-09-08

I did make an alternative revolving mechanism for this gun because I didn't want to cut one of my grey connectors. It locks into place when you turn the revolving part of the gun. I strengthened the barrel end of the gun because it requires a little force to lock into place, but it still works. I also modified the handle around the way I hold the gun. However, I still needed to sharpen the firing pin for it to fit through the ball joint. But I have loads of grey rods, so yeah! Great gun by the way! :) It shoots fantastically and is really easy and fun to make! Would it be possible to get permission from extreme builder to upload my own instrutable of this gun with my modifications? I will give lots of credit. :D

blacktails (author)2011-09-02


Look; The black ball joints are used to hold the bullets in place so they DONT fall out the back, they help A LOT.

You connect them directly to the White "Full moon" connector. You put them right on the side of the connector

sharpbike123 (author)2011-08-11

Could you change the trigger.

akivaweil (author)2011-08-08

needs revolver

KNEX GUN BIULDER (author)2011-06-07

this is the instructions that you aint under standing lol

tytiger33 (author)2011-06-03

It's not a true revolver, it's a pepper box gun. Look it up and see why they aren't made much any more.

epicbobman52 (author)2011-03-12

could i put the turet from this gun on your revolver?

joshimcoop (author)2011-01-02

ElvenChild (author)2010-12-27


me is assisin (author)2010-12-27

the lock on the spinning barrels is easy and pretty smart 4.5*

lukewilliams010 (author)2010-10-30

looks like a nerf gun :P

randomknex (author)2010-09-02

where is the revolver?????? can you please reply asap? thanks

ske66 (author)2010-08-14

can u mold the piece by putting it in a microwave or a kettle so that u can mold it into place?

moishyb (author)2010-08-03

I made it without the ball-joint connectors but i think it decreases the power and also you have to load the gun every time you want to shoot. could someone make a vid explaining how and where to connect the ball-joints? :)

SteelBeast (author)2010-08-03

Where can we find the Modification used in the video with spinning free?

SteelBeast (author)2010-08-03

Wow, The first Red Rod mod I'v seen so far, Well I got like a million red rods so i dun really care if I need to sharpen it. :)

moishyb (author)2010-07-31

I made it without modifying any pieces but i did add 2 extra pieces i.e. a yellow connector and a green connector on the end (sorry my pic didnt load)

ashb1984 (author)2010-04-04

yes 37 , 2 extra yellow conectors

mrmplaster (author)ashb19842010-07-30

39 because 2 extra grey on pic 4

humbug (author)2010-07-29

yh what about that revolv:

humbug (author)2010-07-27

are you sure its 300somthing pices

mahmel (author)2010-07-26

Should I use ball joints or dark grey connectors???

MrSillyGuns (author)2010-07-06

i;m not understanding how it locks in and what the ball joints r for

bullfrog1234 (author)2010-06-06

any other good guns you know of

An Villain (author)2010-05-18

I made something like this, it is a breech-loading single-action standard 4-shot revolver, it fires white rods or the longer conversion rods, it looks a lot like the ambassador revolver.

mart13 (author)2010-05-11

easy gun but shoots really good

J Moneyman (author)2008-12-07

do you have to sharpen the rod?

Hugo4123 (author)J Moneyman2009-05-17

its best to do that with a hand held pencil sharpener

rexdino5 (author)Hugo41232009-06-11

Wow I never thougt of using a sharpener! I'm so dumb... I used a nail filer.

paintswithbrush (author)rexdino52010-04-25

sharpen it with a sharpener then get it really sharp with a filer

J Moneyman (author)rexdino52009-06-11

lol. use a pencil sharpener. it'll cut ur time in half. i haven't tried an electric pencil sharpener though.

redrover95 (author)J Moneyman2010-02-08

the electic pincil sharpener workes so so much better than a nail filer or a handheld pencil sharpener

Blackbird17 (author)J Moneyman2009-07-13

i did it works very fast!

MarijnS95 (author)J Moneyman2009-06-22

you could also use a drill and a filer. put the rod in the drill and hold it to the filer. you will get a nice, smooth and sharp point

J Moneyman (author)MarijnS952009-06-22

do u mean drill a hole in the rod, or replace the bit with a rod?

MarijnS95 (author)J Moneyman2009-06-26

i mean that you have to replace the bit with a knex rod. maybe i will make an instructable to make sharp knex rods.

knex_mepalm (author)rexdino52009-10-08

Trust Me. A nail filer works so much better. An get a gear box to turn the k'nex pieces so you can just hold the hiir filer there

Yes, sadly... But you don't have to sharpen it, you can also cut the top off.

lol. much better than ruining the rod.

H1T4TCH1 (author)2010-04-14

 its actually named a 'turret'...

ashb1984 (author)2010-04-04

39 lpus 2 extra greys on pic3

FFVIIBOY (author)2010-03-29

You know extreme builder your knex revolver reminds me of the death penalty from dirge of cerberus

FFVIIBOY (author)2010-03-28

I got confused on a few parts and i wuz missing some necessary peices so mine came out a little different but it can shoot 3 rubberbands at a time :)

FFVIIBOY (author)FFVIIBOY2010-03-29

Well i worked more on mine so now it only shoots one but it shoot a lot farther and i can store like 40 rubber bands on it at a time, too bad i only have one right now :( i call it the Behemoth :) I would show a pic of it but im too lazy and my camera and cord are downstairs and i dont feel like getting it sorry ill show a pic later if you want

FFVIIBOY (author)2010-03-28
