Introduction: 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: 
https://www.instructables.com/community/DarkOwlKnexs-Project-Update-Three/)

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.

Pictures four through eight are courtesy of nerfrocketeer and Dr. Richtofen.  You should check out their profiles and subscribe for awesome stuff.

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?)

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

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

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

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-10

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

author
didexo made it! (author)didexo2013-07-11

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.

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-11

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

author
didexo made it! (author)didexo2013-07-11

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

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)2013-07-10

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?

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-10

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

author
nerfrocketeer made it! (author)nerfrocketeer2013-07-10

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! :)

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

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-10

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?

author

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.

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-11

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

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-10

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

author

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. ; )

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

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-10

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

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (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

Do you have a phone or ipod?

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-10

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

author
nerfrocketeer made it! (author)nerfrocketeer2013-07-10

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! :)

author
nerfrocketeer made it! (author)2013-07-09

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

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-10

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

author
nerfrocketeer made it! (author)nerfrocketeer2013-07-10

Maybe :P not really... 81

author
DarkOwlProductions made it! (author)DarkOwlProductions2013-07-10

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

author
nerfrocketeer made it! (author)nerfrocketeer2013-07-10

Yeah! Its a wide eyed smirk!
