The Prophet: a Four Shot Turret Pistol

About: Hello, my name is Ondrew. My main interests all lie in design: from mechanical to digital to sound to graphic to... Past me finds it important to go to to help prevent Shell from da...

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.

    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?)

    How do I make it?

    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

    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
