Picture of K'nex Semi-Auto Revolver
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.

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.

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?

This gun is great.... but the instruction is by far the worst i've ever seen....

for example look to picture 1 from step 2 ( look where the straight orange connecter is placed with the white rod)
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 )

That's why i don't realy like the instruction... I'm realy sorry man

I rated: 4.5 ( for gun ) 1.5 ( instruction) 4.5+1.5=6 6:2=3
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....

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.

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
