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!

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

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

EVERYONE LISTEN, ITS ABOUT THE BALL JOINTS

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

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.

author
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?

author
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? :)

author
SteelBeast (author)2010-08-03

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

author
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. :)

author
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)

author
ashb1984 (author)2010-04-04

author
mahmel (author)2010-07-26

author
MrSillyGuns (author)2010-07-06

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

author
bullfrog1234 (author)2010-06-06

any other good guns you know of

author
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

author
J Moneyman (author)2008-12-07

do you have to sharpen the rod?

author
Hugo4123 (author)J Moneyman2009-05-17

its best to do that with a hand held pencil sharpener

author
rexdino5 (author)Hugo41232009-06-11

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

author
paintswithbrush (author)rexdino52010-04-25

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

author
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.

author
redrover95 (author)J Moneyman2010-02-08

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

author
Blackbird17 (author)J Moneyman2009-07-13

i did it works very fast!

author
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

author
J Moneyman (author)MarijnS952009-06-22

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

author
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.

author
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

author

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

author

lol. much better than ruining the rod.

author
H1T4TCH1 (author)2010-04-14
