Step 1: NAR (Not a Rectangle)
The Jamalam puts it this way: "The "Not A Rectangle", otherwise known as "Untangle" or simply "NAR" is easily the best single shot in terms of range due to the power transfer at the front. Because this is the only needed feature of the gun, it also makes the NAR very customizable and therefore you can change your NAR to the extreme. With enough work, you could make the gun look however you like."
Range: 4/10 (40 ft. max). It was alleged that got 100 ft., mine only got 40 ft., thus, 4 out of 10.
Looks: 6/10. Though this really does not matter, I think that the NAR looks pretty good.
Internal Functions: 5/10. It was hard to get the trigger to block the FP with out help.
Broken Pieces: 10/10. The NAR does not require any.
Comfort: 4/10. The NAR is not really that comfortable
Rate of Fire: 2/10. It was hard to pull and to fire with speed.
Sturdiness: 8/10. The NAR is relatively sturdy.
Keep in mind that this is my rating for the gun. I truly suggest that you check it out for your self, don't take my word for it. And, if I have offended anyone, I'm sorry, but this is my rating of the gun. Ignore it if you wish.
Step 2: TR8 (TuRret 8 Rounds)
Now, it may look like my version is "heavily modified," but it is not. I is almost exactly the same gun as The only thing I really changed is the fore grip area, as I did not want to use up all of those white connecters. Also, I don't own any spacers, so that may have affected something or other.
Range: 7/10. I got about 70 ft. with one #117 band and a non-finned red rod. I got only 60 ft. with two bands and a finned red rod. The fins made the rod go downwards.
Looks: 7/10. I think it looks pretty boss. Almost futuristic.
Internal Function: 5/10. Same problem as the NAR. The Trigger needed help to block the pin.
Broken Pieces: 10/10. None necessary.
Comfort: 4/10. Its not THAT comfortable.
Rate of Fire: 5/10. I could not figure out how to fire this thing very fast. It just did not work.
Sturdiness: 6/10. It was relatively sturdy, but if you were to drop this, the TR might break.
Again, this is my rating for the gun. If you want to see it in action, go build it yourself.
Step 3: ZKAR (Zak's K'NEX Assult Rifle)
Range: 10/10. I got 70 ft. easy.
Looks: 8/10. I think it looks boss.
Internal Functions: 8/10. It works great, but requires some pin-pull-redoes...things like that.
Broken Pieces: 4/10. It requires a broken y-rod, which many people are unwilling to give up.
Comfort: 4/10. The handle looks comfortable, but really is not...at least to me.
Rate of Fire: 6/10. You could shoot all 7 rods out of the magazine in 10 seconds (provided that it did not jam).
Sturdiness: 10/10. The ZKAR is quite sturdy.
I really do suggest that you build this. It will be a good experience.
