Introduction: K'NEX Thorncannon

Picture of K'NEX Thorncannon

"To rend one's enemies is to see them not as equals, but objects - hollow of spirit and meaning." - 13th Understanding, 7th Book of Sorrow (In Game Description)

There's nothing more satisfying than blowing your enemies to smithereens with a heavy-duty revolver. The looks, the cylinder, the size, the recoil, whats not to love? So if looking like a sick beast is your goal, the Thorncannon is here to help.

Based on the handcannon Thorn from Destiny, this, my 99th Instructable, is just a model that I made for fun and aesthetics. Coming in at about 12 in. long, this thing is one heck of a pistol, and is really just fun to mess around with!

As I said before, this is my 99th Instructable and my third entry into the K'NEX Contest, so don't forget to give me a vote, a favorite, and a comment with what you'd like to see next! Thanks again guys!

wow... that gun looks amazing, please post some instructions for it. Would love the build the thing!

KnEx FrEaK 1 (author)2015-08-02

hey I was wondering If maybe you wanted to do a collaberation on some sort of bolt action sniper?

robertrader1997 (author)2015-07-23

I'd love to see you make an l85a2

Dreamwave (author)knexcreator1412015-06-24

agreed... IDK how an internal pin could fit in that in any conventional manner though. that wouod require a pretty unique mechanism design

Dreamwave (author)2015-06-24

try making a bolt action l96 wherein the bolt actually charges it, it doesn't have to have a separate chamber for the round but that would be a real plus if you could add that in.

Vaetheon (author)2015-06-10

Looks very nice man

Liam2912 (author)2015-05-23

while you're making Destiny guns do the vex mythoclast or gjallarhorn

Doc Penguin (author)2015-05-23

god bless you

trybetterdude (author)2015-05-09

make a instratible about this

I would, but I've already dismantled it.

XD omg you just made a destiny pun. When you delete something of yours it is : (and i quote) Dismantle

LOL, I did and I didn't even notice! TROLOL

Gotten four of these so far. They're good in-game. Model looks good, although maybe a little more spikes if I remember correctly. Also, a trigger-guard that does not go all the way around the trigger, but over-all, a nice gun. Are you hyped for House of Wolves? I know I am, finally got all three of my guys to 32 to make the new activites easier.

Thanks man, yeah, it does need more spikes but I kinda copped out at the end. Thanks man, I would be hyped for house of wolves if I owned Destiny, but I don't... not yet anywho.

Next make the gjallahorn hor red death or bad juju or truth

Yeah actually, I really wanna make a Necrochasm, it'd be soooooooo sick.

That would be hella awesome. You should also make the Monte Carlo, that would be sweet af in K'nex. Hell, why am I telling you to do it, I should get off my lazy ass and build something

Yeah man, that'd be DOPE! You should go for it!!!

didexo (author)2015-04-30

For your 100th post, do you want to do a collab?

I would man, but with my schedule I would be a very unreliable collaborator... You and I never really did a collab did we? Sad times man...

That is fine.

CorgiCritter (author)2015-04-30

Very cool. I take it doesn't shoot?

No sir, doesn't shoot, just a model... Could I get a vote from you?

OK. I already voted, us home-schooler need to watch out for each other. ;)

Yes sir we do! That makes what, 4, 5 of us?

I happen to be a homeschooler, 9th grade.

At least.
