New K'nex Gun: The KAR-1

Introducing  a new K'nex gun for a future Instructable.

The K'nex Assault Rifle Model 1 is in the final stages of development and is currently being field tested for quality and reliability. the KAR-1 is a traditional pull-back ram driven K'nex gun fed by a self contained magazine firing blue K'nex rods or 2.25 x 1/4" metal or wood rods.

The KAR was developed in an effort to produce a rugged and reliable K'nex gun for the K'nex gun enthusiast. No gimmicks or odd attachments; only pure functionality.

Current performance shows signs of promise. Trigger pull is smooth yet yields consistant distances between 25 to 35 feet for blue and wood rods respectively.

There is no set due date for the instructions as of yet; however updates will come as progress is made.

Compared to the Z35, the KAR is more compact, but should have all of the bite.
try using the reply button. And personally, I'd prefer a bit more bite.

Maybe some pics of the full gun?
design and preformance seems very Z35-esque. Goal is the same as the TR.
