Introduction: The Prophet: a Four Shot Turret Pistol

Picture of The Prophet: a Four Shot Turret Pistol

As I think I've hinted in my profile: I've built a K'nex turret pistol.  I was going to call it 'ShadeShot,' but thought that didn't sound as cool as: The Prophet.  Anyways, it gets great ranges and looks really cool in my opinion.  I've recently discovered a setting on my camera where you can give pictures certain 'effects.'  The main picture in this Instructable uses one of those, and you can expect more like it.  

I will eventually post instructions for this little beauty.

It has:
A new TP4 design by yours truly.  This one is different from all the others in its design; I know there have been others, but mine, I think, is the first to have all the amenities of the TR8 in terms of layering and whatnot.  (When I post instructions, feel free to use it, and I don't even care if you give me credit or not; I'm a firm believer in the 'Give-the-technology-to-the-masses-and-I-don't-care-about-credit' mindset.)

Great Range (It goes across my basement with ease, and I have a HUGE extended basement.)

An Awesome Trigger (If you notice, it's the exact same trigger and handle from my model Walther PPK I made in this forum topic:

A very nice appearance. (Especially the shot with the color effect thing; it happens to look a lot like metallics for some reason.)

A comfortable handle.

Expect updates, instructions, more cool pictures, and the like.  This instructable is going to be entered into The Rods & Connectors Contest, and I really hope to have instructions by the end of it.  Enjoy the pictures for now; I'm hoping to make instructions sometime this week.

the prophet?

I haven't played that game, but no, you're definitely right: this is instructables, and not Bioshock Infinite. :P (Are there similar sounding guns in the game?)

(no, a evil person in the game is called the prophet)

prophet is also the main charachter in crysis 3

Oh, ok. :3

TheAwesomestDude (author)2013-08-15

I don't know. That is a very good question. :P

yes it is hmmmmmmm I wonder. . . . . . . . :P

instructions plz

Is it possible that you could build from the internals? There's not enough interest to post full on instructions, but I could give you internal pictures if that'll help you out. I'm glad you like this. :3

neat and voted XD
Yo always support me so ill support u too :D

Thanks. It means a lot. :D

dr. richtofen (author)2013-07-11

Nice, looks like a pretty simple, but effective design. Good job.
Oh, I gave a spin (well, actually three) to the third photo as well, because, y'know, art

I'll add these as well. :D All of them look AmAzInG! :3

Thank you :3

Nice job!

Thank you. :3

Cool, Im not a fan with turrets on pistols but none the less it is good.

I think I very well be one of the very few active members on the site that likes turrets on anything, really. Thanks, though!

And by any chance, are you building a gun as of now? It'd be really cool to see more work from you. :D

I have an idea for a gun when I get back to the U.S. But if that doesn't work out I have another minecraft map that is almost done. I am in a dry zone of ideas for building but I'll try to get out. Expect projects to come.

Awesome. Maybe you could make a compact semi automatic hammer gun? Why not? :3

Because I hate hammer guns :p. Plus, I have a project in mind :)

Thanks! I'm going to get more pictures with some of the effects now. Check back soon for more pictures. :D

I made a few for ya too. :) you want to see em?

Yes, definitely! The new pictures that I took are posted now, too. :D

These are some of mine; in Sketch, Neon, and Old Paper.

The new pictures you added look GREAT (especially the intro pic)!!! You got a pretty cool camera on your hands! :)

Thanks for those pictures! I will definitely add these to the instructable.

Sure! Glad you like them! =D

Thanks for adding them! :).

You're welcome. :D

Nice pictures bro, and the gun sounds awesome. So, tell me, how far does this thing shoot?

Thanks! I have now measured the range. Although my basement is not big enough to contain it, it went across the entire basement (which is 50 feet) and rebounded off the concrete wall about five feet. So I'd say about 60 feet roughly?

Wow, not bad at all. It is not amazing for a turreted gun, but all the same, nice. I have had non-turreted, non-bolt action guns get over 70 ft. but all the same.

I personally think it could go much farther than sixty feet; I only have two bands on it right now, and those bands are basically strands of leftovers that I have tied together. And thanks! I'm going to keep tweaking it until it goes (I know this may sound ridiculous) around 100 feet if possible. It's very possible with turrets, I think. Hopefully! :3

I'll measure it now, and are you tempted to build by any chance? :3

Am I tempted to build... I really don't know. The other day, I was thinking about building a Bullpup TR8 the other day, but I don't know if I will. I have only build one turreted gun, the WASP, and I had to make it a TR8, not a TR18.

Lol. It seemes like everyone who does Knex wants to be an engineer. Me included. ; )

sandroknexmaster (author)2013-07-10

Nice new pics! I really like the first one, in the tree.

Thanks! That was my favorite, too; that's why I made it the profile picture. :3

DarkOwlProductions (author)2013-07-10

Thanks, that is a huge compliment! It would kind of be cool to be a photographer, but I think engineering is where I'm headed. :D

nerfrocketeer (author)2013-07-10

Do you have a phone or ipod?

Neither. Only got a landline. :3 I take these pictures from my camera.

Oh thats too bad. :( the reason i was asking is because you could make other kinds of great pics too, ones that look like drawings, neon, and more! I like the gunmetal style of yours too! :)

nerfrocketeer (author)2013-07-09

BEAST! You're pretty good with the turret guns! :3

Thanks, but are you mocking me with the :3's? :3 :3 :3

Maybe :P not really... 81

What's with the '81' thing you do? Is it an emoticon, too?

Yeah! Its a wide eyed smirk!
