K'nex - Colt Python Instructions

About: Welcome to my Instructables page

Hey guys and today I bring you instructions for the Colt Python. It is a revolver that was used in several police forces but it did eventually fall out of service due to the need of semi automatic pistols. It's not my own design since I did follow pictures from Blue Mullet 2.

Good Points

· Very Realistic

· Comfortable Hand Grip

· Good Iron Sights

Bad Points

· Doesn't Shoot Because It's Just A Model

· Uses Quite A Lot Of Cut Pieces (See Parts List)

· The Whole Gun Is Slightly Flimsy

Specifications For A Real Colt Python

· Designed - 1955

· Number Built - Over 630,000

· Ammo - .357 Magnum

· Rate Of Fire - 6 Rounds Per Minute

· Powered - Double Action

· Magazine - 6 Round Magazine

· Range - Between 25 and 50 yards

In Call Of Duty: Zombies, the Python appears in every single map for COD: Black Ops and all COD: Black Ops II maps apart from Mob Of The Dead and also Buried where it is only available from the Mystery Box for 950 points. It has a one shoot kill up to round 10. Speed Cola is strongly recommended to reload each new bullet into the cylinder. When it is Pack-A-Punched for 5000 points it becomes the "Cobra" where you get more damage, more ammo and a speed reloader. In BO II with Double Tap 2.0 it will have one shoot kill up to round 22 but you can still go for headshots even after it has lost it's one shoot kill.

    Very good job, zombie! It looks very realistic. Just plain cool. Sometimes, when a gun I have made isn't shooting well, I think about building models. I still prefer shooting guns though. I guess that with a model you can really work on getting a gun to look right.

    I like this gun, it is one of my favorite guns from you and you did a great job on it. If it could shoot it would be ten times better. But great job!
