Introduction: K'NEX Gun: Declaration (R2)

The Declaration is a gun that came out of a challenge (from TheRacker) to build a good looking bolt action gun. With that in mind, I set out to build a gun that would answer the needs of any indoor K'NEX War participant, and the Declaration is what I came up with. A mix of many different bolt action guns (namely the S1, the S2, and the Vice CKG, originally created by Kinetic, but posted by Benjamin Groverhere.

While it could use a caliber change (I hate yellow rod ammo), and could use a trigger mech change, it is an over all great gun. If you would like to see the video, visit The Red Book of Westmarch Insider, or see the video here (it should be the top video on the list).

Features:
  • Bolt action mech
  • Good range: 50 -70 ft.
  • Sturdy
  • New (comfortable) handle/grip
  • Comfortable stock
  • Sights (which is something VERY few bolt action guns have)
  • New (heavily modded, taken from my ZKAR)
  • Nice looking (at least in my opinion)

I really must try more bolt action guns... If you would like internals, just ask.

Yes, you did it! See, I knew you were capable. Quite a masterful job, too. Man, there are so many things that I want to build with my K'nex but can't because it is gone. D:

author

Thanks bro, you seem to be one of the few people who actually like the Declaration. It was a mix of other BA guns, but, come on, its not THAT bad...?

red can you give me a tutorial on removable mags? I'm a newbie on those

author

What exactly do you mean?

author
Triggerhappy101 made it! (author)Triggerhappy1012013-10-14

i don't know how to make them :P

author

Ah, I see. Well, first off, you must decide what size of magazine you want. I think that this 'ible (https://www.instructables.com/id/KNEX-Gun-Types-Magazines-Propulsion-Internals/step2/Magazines/) will help you out a lot. After you have decided the size of the mag you want, you need to see what types of ammo (either rods, connecters, or a mix of the two) will fit withing that type of mag. Once determined, the rest is easy. Just take one side of the mag that you want to build, place the second layer within the first (the second layer sides should be far enough apart to omit the bullets to pass between them), then attach the third layer (which should be a copy of the first layer). See?

Wait i get it now

and i have made a mag, it just wasn't removable because i didnt know how to do that, so it was welded into the gun (Beretta/Sniper) and was a pain to reload :)

author

Well, that is good, but it all takes some practice. Give me some pics when you have time. =D

I confess to you that there is barely a resemblance between the two...

I love the handle! It's so awesome, I might use it on some of my guns if I ever get around to building something else.....and if I post it you will be credited. But the only thing about this guns is it looks like the ZKAR. Sorry, to be like everyone else, but it's true. : L As an idea, I sort of wanted to find a way to make a bull pup bolt action gun. Sort of like my BBAP but more efficient, and on a larger body scale...

author

Thankee. TheRacker thinks I went overboard with it, and I agree, but if it looks awesome, who cares...? Don't worry about giving me credit, I'm not picky on that score. Does it really look like the ZKAR? I just don't see it, that is all. I can't wait to see more builds from you...

author
Raz1r Knex Bull3t made it! (author)Raz1r Knex Bull3t2013-10-01

It doesn't look exactly like the ZKAR, it just looks a lot like it. It's just the general layout of the design, that's all...

author

Ah, I see... sorta. =D

Yup, 70 ft.

only 6? ;p i give it 9/10 because the looks i dont really like. but the mech and all is good.

author
The Red Book of Westmarch made it! (author)2013-09-30

No, not really. I have a RMACR V.2 right now. I just wanted to build it to shoot it again. I'm thinking about making it semi-automatic.

author
TheDunkis made it! (author)2013-09-29

I can see where people are getting the idea that the ZKAR inspired this. You should've tried to make it look even more original just to help your case, but I do like the look of this. It makes the fire in me burn more to build my own. Since classes, I really just haven't had time. Hoping I can change that.

author

Yeah, ZakS claims that it is, but well let him think that. I could have made it more original, I just was not sure on how to do that. BTW, can you see all of the pictures clearly? I do hope you build your own, but I can understand that you are busy. We (the community) would like an "older K'NEXer" that is calm and uses logic around.

author
CODawesome made it! (author)2013-09-26

Cool! But i don't see much difference from your ZKAR, externally and internally. It is still good, but in my opinion, it is a 'recycled ZKAR. But no offense, my man.

author

Well, I can understand that, and after looking at my mechanism, and looking at the ZKAR mechanism, there is something of a resemblance, but since most of this came out of my head, the S1, the S2, or the Vice CKG, ZakS can't claim anything.

author
TheRacker made it! (author)TheRacker2013-09-27

Well it has the same trigger, magazine, and bolt mech. What's different?

author

Well, the trigger is heavily modded from the Vice CKG, not the ZKAR. The magazine is modded from TD's yellow rod magazine, not the ZKAR, and the bolt mech was the same as my ZKAR, but heavily modded from the original ZKAR.

Dat handle, improve the mag area look though, I don't like it

author

Thanks, but what do you mean "the mag area?"

author

I guess I can see that.
