The first K'nex double action revolver, it's only been...oooh... at least 3 years too long since I first made it but over that time I have fiddled and tweaked it to what it is today. So it's finally here YAAAAAAYY!

It can shoot oodammo, blue, green or white rods (I find that I get the most range from the white rods). 
When shot horizontally the range with one band is about 25 feet.

Unlike other K'nex guns with cylinders this one has an auto-revolver mechanism that rotates the cylinder whenever the trigger is pulled, so you never have to rewind it, EVER!

Step 1: Frame

Okay, soooo...

1. Fabricate 1 like so. Merci beaucoup.
2. And a further 1 alikea thiis!
3. Attach these yellow rods and make sure they are in the same places. 

Now set these aside.

4. Make 3 of such a thing.
5. Fix the layers with rods.

Near the barrel
I mean just has a band that acts as a damper
How doesn't it rotate
<p>It has a pawl which pushes the barrels round</p>
can you ppppllllllleeeeaase tel me how the barrel rotates
AMAZING GUN but carp instructions
dude, this is awesome. I am definitely making this 5*!
What is the max amount of bands you can put on this thing?
It depends, if they were #64s then 2 probably.
HELP OMG when i shoot it it only goes back like an 1/8 of the way and the trigger is touching the barrel Help!!!!!!!
hmmm... if you ask me, it looks a little too much like oodalumps's WASP to be credible.
Are you so illiterate that you didn't read the intro?
how the turret rotate
I think literacy is not the problem here.
its impossible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WTF DUDE there was already no blue spacers
What the hell <br>Pic 4 Fail
i dont have this orange connector !!
Its that okey if i use my turret TR18
man its like a automatic TR8
This gun is great.... but the instruction is by far the worst i've ever seen.... <br> <br>for example look to picture 1 from step 2 ( look where the straight orange connecter is placed with the white rod) <br>Now look to picture 4 and 5 from step 5 ( is it on another place.... you didn't even say that it sits wrong or something ) <br> <br>That's why i don't realy like the instruction... I'm realy sorry man <br> <br>I rated: 4.5 ( for gun ) 1.5 ( instruction) 4.5+1.5=6 6:2=3 <br>I rated a 3... i'm realy sorry man just not very nice to build if it takes you like 5 minutes each picture to understand.... <br> <br>
I want to see how it works (the rotating mechanism) But you have GOT to make better instructions!
replace them with reds, works for me
Haha, thanks for the help but i got more pieces.<br>
dude its an awesome gun but can you please make a better instructable because i realy want to make it
Terrible instructions!
this gun is AWSOME!!!
Cool gun :) Horrible instructable :(
:( It took me 2 days to do that.
Well I can tell you put effort into it based on all the extra comments (you have a good sense of humor), but on some of the steps you showed images of an already complete gun and when putting the gun together you would jump from a half completed handle to adding a forgotten spacer. When I post guns, I do it layer by layer, though I recognize that that is a little more irritating with a yellow-width gun, but it is much more clear. I love the gun, I the effort you put into the instructable, but try to follow a layer by layer format next time and you won't hear any complaints from me :) Sorry if I was a bit to the point on my first comment.
Well thank you for telling me, constructive criticism is always appreciated.
Ya, we never made that stuff in pic 4!
My rating changed your overall into a 5.0 (:
What do you mean you can't read the photos?
well i cant really understand where to put the bands and other things
If you understand how this mechanism works, you should know where to place bands that provide the mechanical energy for such a thing to operate. :p
whats up with pic 4, we never made that! =/
Not on KI :'( It shoots pretty far though.
dude its sweet but it dosent shoot very far
Sorry dude I tried making it but the instructions are too unclear. The idea is very good though.
Good idea, but due to inconsistent directions, lack of English, and extra/unrelated pictures, the final result left me with a broken orange connector, three barrels that fell off, two bullets that actually shot, and three barrels with the bullets about a millimeter from their original starting point. I am really glad I got to take apart my M1 Garand Hammer Mech gun for this.<br><br>NOT.
Alright, that was a bit harsh, and the broken piece wasn't entirely your fault, but when you said to put the rubber band somewhere instead of showing us, it got really messed up, and the only reason the above happened was because it wouldn't spin. The times it did it shot very nicely.<br><br>Please add a little bit more detail, clean up the pics so that you don't have extras, and please be more consistent with the pics, for example, in Step 1 below the snowflake connector it is a green connector, yet in the final pictures it is a yellow connector.<br><br>A video would bring my 2.0 up to a 3.5 or above, with one of the plates removed, preferably the one with the pawl on it removed so the mechanism can be seen and duplicated, thank you.
Okay, yeah, I will try to do a video. Sorry about some inconsistency in the photos, it was because as I was doing the Instructable I modified it slightly.
And thanks for being cool dude, as you know, comments always look more hostile than the person intended, but I modded it to shoot yellow rods with a break-action type thing where the handle part bends in the middle so you can easily take the cylinder out to reload. Yeah, I mean, I know how it's SUPPOSED to work, for me it just doesn't. Thanks man for replying though.
Alright, I mean, I modded it so now it just doesn't rotate, part of it was my fault I think, so I'll higher the rating, but I would really like an auto rotate... Like I said, a video of the mechanism (the pawl-side plate taken off) would suffice, but it DOES get nice range. Reminds me of the Mauler from Halo haha.
these instructions are retarted in every step its got something from a previous step but a peice is different so you have to change it <br>
