Made this a long time ago. It was the first turret gun that I made that worked.

krwchampion2 (author)2013-06-25

are all 32 grey connectors on the turret

metalsonic (author)2013-02-08

was this the gun that did this???

Blorph (author)2012-11-28

Whats a Y-clip and a Blue clip?

wout147 (author)2012-03-31

i replaced the plate under the trigger for 2 blue rods whit gray spacers on it, less friction

dr. richtofen (author)2011-08-05

it's awesome! i got 33 metre, or about 110 feet, with 3 bands on it!
but i modded it a bit, and now it is a rifle, i know its ugly now, but it shoots good!

That's a sick gun, why you say it's ugly?
Shame it's broken up, would of ask you to post the mods

thanks, i'll try to explain the mods to you:

-the red dot:
well, i used tape + waterproof markers (or something like that)
Attached via an yellow connector + white rod + y-connectors on the top of the gun

blue 3d's or white connectors on an yellow rod, attached with two y connectors and white rods in front of the trigger guard

you see the red connectors on the top of the normal assasin above the ram rod?
Change the white rod in those for an blue rod. On that blue rod, put an green connector on both sides. Than change the green connectors above the handle on the back of the gun for white connectors. Than build the stock shown in my pictures, shouldn't be too hard. and attach grey rods on the green connectors on top.

-Handle: the normal handle without the sticking-out white rods. Put knex tires on it, than change the bottom and so s in my pictures to reïnforce the handle and stock.

Well.. I hoped this helped you a bit, tell me if you mod it and/or like it

Thanks, will build soon, just built knex freeks final stand crossbow, good gun btw knex freek. so yeah, anyways, thanks for the explanation, i'll use that and the pictures when i get round to it

KnexFreek (author)dr. richtofen2011-08-09

Its actually pretty good (:

dr. richtofen (author)KnexFreek2011-08-10

thanks, but i broke it up. Now it's some sort of narbine

Kaiven (author)2011-07-14

This is the first turreted gun I have built... also the second I've built in 3 years or so, heh. It's cool, but I don't know how to wind a turret. Where should the bands be placed?

muffinslayer2 (author)2010-03-10

I shall build this tomorrow, your still my favorite "knexpert" lol (horrible pun)

DB2016 (author)muffinslayer22011-07-06

Tell me about it.
That wasn't directed at you, it's overused, and funny only when used informally.

KnexFreek (author)muffinslayer22010-03-10

 Awesome! And thanks! LOL knexpert is not a pun, people have called others that for awhile! Its a nice compliment :)

Furloy (author)KnexFreek2010-08-09

hay to get 70 ft, what bands do i use?

muffinslayer2 (author)KnexFreek2010-03-11

ohh oh well im building it right now

KnexFreek (author)muffinslayer22010-03-11

 Cool! i hope you like it alot!

muffinslayer2 (author)KnexFreek2010-03-11

i made it and it looks awesome, but how do i shoot it?

nevermind i found out how, and with only 2 bands this thing is awesome             5 stars!

KnexFreek (author)muffinslayer22010-03-11

 Thankyou very much!! Do you like the trigger? 


muffinslayer2 (author)KnexFreek2010-03-13

trigger is wierd but hey, it works

KnexFreek (author)muffinslayer22010-03-13

:) I think the trigger is really cool, and is what sets the gun apart from the rest of the pistols.

TheFoofinator (author)KnexFreek2010-03-29

 Exactly the same trigger as solekiller's top loading pistol, so it doesn't set it apart from all the other pistols

KnexFreek (author)TheFoofinator2010-03-29

ZAK designed the trigger, he used it on his pistol, THEN solekiller made his pistol with ZAK'S trigger. AND i posted this gun and gave credit to ZAK.  .

Its not that hard to understand!

Superpoopa (author)KnexFreek2010-07-18

I dont get how the revolving piece works and how do you put the bullets into it?????

TheFoofinator (author)KnexFreek2010-04-02

 Sorry, only just been on KI, i just saw solekiller's gun on Youtube

muffinslayer2 (author)KnexFreek2010-03-14

Hey, sometimes when i shoot it now the green rod connecting the turret part onto the snowflake breaks off, and ideas why?

KnexFreek (author)muffinslayer22010-03-14

 Uhmmm 2 things, the yellow connector the green rod is on might be weak, replace it. OR use a weaker band on the turret :)

you know what, scratch that, 6 stars!

KnexFreek (author)muffinslayer22010-03-11

 Woot!!! LOL 6 stars!

Woox (author)KnexFreek2010-04-05

Do you know whats better then 6? SEVEN STARS!(seriously)

james4 (author)Woox2010-05-11

actually infinity stars is more

dwksideas (author)2011-06-17

may someone please explain the concept of a turret gun and in the pictures it looks like it shoots the white rods but im still lost in what its point is and if it is reliable

Hitchtopher (author)2011-05-19

I made the gun, got it to shoot 60 feet, and my made the turrett spin by itself. To make it spin by itself, I used a rubberband and a counter-weight. This is an awesome gun.

Hitchtopher (author)Hitchtopher2011-05-24

Now 70 feet and I am using copper tubing as ammo.

JoJoJo00 (author)2011-05-14 do u attach the turret?

Polarize (author)2011-05-04

Just made it, very nice :)

SomeAsianKid (author)2011-04-19

LIES this is not an 'ADVANCED' gun D:

KnexFreek (author)SomeAsianKid2011-04-20

Yes it is for a newb.. Which makes up 50% of this site....
NEWB!!! hahah

lol jk

Hiyadudez (author)2010-08-31

To be honest, you should get about 1% credit. You didnt build the turret or zaks gun. ALl you made was the bit that the turret slides onto :-|

TheFoofinator (author)Hiyadudez2010-09-01

Er, do you know he's gone for good?

Hiyadudez (author)TheFoofinator2010-09-01


TheFoofinator (author)Hiyadudez2010-09-01

Errrr. he won't see that comment...

KnexFreek (author)TheFoofinator2010-11-25

or will i??!!!!!?

TheFoofinator (author)KnexFreek2010-11-27

Yes you will, didn't expect you to be back then!

KnexFreek (author)TheFoofinator2010-11-27

im back briefly :)

jamesdude (author)KnexFreek2011-03-27

WOOOO! Finally. I had a hunch you'd come back.

webby427 (author)KnexFreek2010-12-21

Yaay :)

KnexFreek (author)Hiyadudez2010-11-23

1%? If you do a piece count on what i changed based on his gun its about 25% of the gun.
