Introduction: T.A.T.G.

Picture of T.A.T.G.

Tiny. @$$. Turret. Gun.
This is just a basic block trigger pistol, with my tiny turret on it.
-Range: 45 ft. flat, 55 ft. at a 45 degree angle.
-Capacity: 4 of pretty much any kind of ammo you can think of. (Any rod, fin ammo, oodammo, etc.)
-Size: Small pistol?
This is meant to be a last resort type weapon for a knex war. Keep it in your pocket, somehow attached to your primary weapon, whatever. I KNOW IT'S UGLY PEOPLE! So please don't comment saying: "Oh, that sh** make me wanna puke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Me: turret
Mepain (sorta): the body, but it's so basic, it doesn't really matter.

Step 1: Make the Gun

Picture of Make the Gun

In this step we will, of course, be making the gun.
1. The turret.
2. Main gun/ barrel.
3. Main gun/ barrel.
4. Make sure the bottom-most red rod is positioned exactly like this.
5. I add this to the block trigger. (optional)
6. Standard handle, like the one on KK's first pistol. Could be longer or shorter.
7. Put on 5 silver spacers, and 1 blue spacer.
8. The pin. (doesn't have to be strengthened?)
9. Just a tan connector+ball joint.
10. Slide on the turret, then put one silver spacer+one tan connector on the end.
Now go to the next step to see where to put rubberbands.

Step 2: Rubberband Placement+firing

On this step you'll see where to, you guessed it, place the rubberbands.
1. Put a thin band from here to.......
3. Put a thin band from the green rod of the block trigger to the bottom of the handle. (Just like on KK's first pistol.)

Now, to fire just wind up the turret, then add your ammo. Pull back the ram until the trigger locks, then FIRE.

Step 3: Have Fun

Have fun! Rate it honestly, if you think it deserves a *5, great. If not, I won't cry very much about it.

I hope you find my first instructable useful, rate and comment as you wish.

mettaurlover (author)Smasher5552010-09-11

He said it was very basic.

An Villain (author)2010-04-05

love it, compact, easy to use, powerful, and for some reason, has a nice heft to it without being bulky.

knexsuperbuilderfreak (author)2010-03-21

nothing new besides the turret 5* just for the heck of it

Thanks. You do realize this is old though, right?

yes i rated it *5 but i rated for the time it came out

Seleziona (author)2009-12-18

not good! you need a real trigger!

travw (author)Seleziona2009-12-18

This was supposed to be as simple as possible.

Seleziona (author)travw2009-12-18

i see, but you could've made a simple trigger!

travw (author)Seleziona2009-12-18

Show me.

Seleziona (author)travw2009-12-18


travw (author)Seleziona2009-12-18

You say I could've put a simple truegger on this, prove it. Make one. Show me.

Because I'd bet money against it.

Hiyadudez (author)travw2009-12-24

The trigger you have on it now is a block trigger, not a truegger.

travw (author)Hiyadudez2009-12-24

....Where did I say otherwise?.....

KnexFreek (author)travw2010-03-17

 It is just sad the comments you et on this. i feel bad for you LOL 

Seleziona (author)travw2009-12-18

i'll make one when i'm done the dual turret bow.

KnexFreek (author)travw2010-01-04

 make a simple hinge trigger :D oh and know this was posted awhile ago, but... but... uh......... idk :(

travw (author)KnexFreek2010-01-04

You make one then. Because I don't see it happening.

Seriously, if you want one, show me and I'll update this instructable. Because I'm sick and tired of people bitching about it being a block. I like blocks just fine.

Typing in caps :-)

travw (author)1825152010-01-24

....What? Yes, I was typing in all capitals. Your point?

182515 (author)travw2010-01-25

You said this PET PEEVES: Bad grammar, punctuation, and spelling.

travw (author)1825152010-01-25

But what I said wasn't for no reason. It was to show that I was 'shouting'. Or would've been in real life, if I was actually speaking to him.

KnexFreek (author)travw2010-01-04

 look at your keyboard........... 

travw (author)KnexFreek2010-01-04

Owenmon (author)Owenmon2010-01-02

Dangit! It came out all messy.

travw (author)Owenmon2010-01-02


Lazarabitch is more like it. =)

Owenmon (author)travw2010-01-02

HAHAHAHAHA! When I first started playing the game, I thought of that. Then, when Harry said it in the scene, I was speechless. =P

travw (author)Owenmon2010-01-02

Me too!

Seleziona (author)2009-12-18

Oh, that sh** make me wanna puke!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i was just kidding....

travw (author)Seleziona2009-12-18

Very creative...

Seleziona (author)travw2009-12-18

i know! right off the top of my head!

travw (author)Seleziona2009-12-18

...Do you not get that I was being sarcastic? Or were you being sarcastic back?

Seleziona (author)travw2009-12-19

I was being sarcastic back.....

travw (author)Seleziona2009-12-19

K, that's what I thought, just making sure. =P

Seleziona (author)travw2009-12-19


MotaBoi (author)2009-11-18

 is this automatic?

travw (author)MotaBoi2009-11-18

No. You pull back the ram, pull the trigger, then repeat.

MotaBoi (author)travw2009-11-18

 o ok

DJ Radio (author)2009-10-25

Whee!  The lowest rated knex gun with something innovative!  =P

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-25

Uh... Thanks?

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-10-25

Well, I thought if you would talk about my ratings, I would talk about yours.  Fair enough?

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-25

Sure, I don't especially care.
But to be 'fair', your rating is also like 1.2 stars better. So..... yeah.

knexsniper1 (author)2009-09-02

hey, i wass trying to delete that comment!

DJ Radio (author)2009-08-16

Put a true trigger on it. and I think mepain's turreted Killerk pistol is cleaner. Not to mention it has more shots and a true trigger.
