Working Revolvers!!
About this creation
My approach to guns.. make 'em work, make 'em simple, make 'em different than everybody elses'. All the COD guns have been done, there are some fantastic models out there, but I haven't seen any working revolvers. These work just like a real revolver, except that the cylinder doesn't pop out.







I have to say, this is my best gun idea yet.



Here's how it works. Pull the trigger, and it pops out one of those dark grey piece.





The rubberband goes from the end of the gun to the grey piece that pops out.



Then to load another "shot" you pull the "hammer" back, it rotates the cylinder.



Voila another shot is locked and loaded.



I made two versions of this gun. One with a black slick handle, and another with a "wooden" brown handle.











The red rubberband is to make the trigger go back.



This is the "wooden" handle one. I like the handle design better, it is more comfortable.













Both guns loaded, and ready for a shoot out. Thanks for looking!

thats amazing

Nice! I have an idea that the handles could be replaced by those curved pieces used for those old UFO sets - if you've see the millennium falcons engines, imagine that sideways - i think I'll try and build it
  January 17, 2014
ok, ive LDDed the handle and it is now more realistic-looking. Staples, would you mind giving me your email so i can send you the file?

It's made by Winchester. That is awesome. My friend and I also have quite a collection of knifes. He has some better looking ones than me. Gerber has nice pocket knifes. I really like their multitools.

Quoting Timothy Dillman I have 1(one) question, why not just upload the LDD on here? I think it would be much easier than having to send all those e-mails. Nice revolvers though :)
I've thought about that, and I do it for my technic tutorials. The only reason I don't do it for my guns is that I really want to see how many people want it. That's cool man, and thanks. Good luck, and post me a link when you get done so I can see it.

Quoting H Barber Awesome! Clever idea and great execution. Does it hold all 6 shots at one time? As far as I can tell, it can't...anyway, keep building. Please!
It has pins for six, but I haven't got it to be able to shoot six. I've found out, it works best with 4 shots.

Amazing concept, your right, there is nothing like it! As soon as I saw you putting those tecnic pegs in, I was like, "why didn't I think of that?" But I'm sure I lot of folks are thinking the same thing, and I doubt I could get the mechanism to pop em out to work, I fail at tecnic. Any way, really amazing creation, both looks good, and functions great. Epic MOC!!! --- When I saw the main pic, I was like, "It fires real bullets?!? Is that safe?" LoL!
