Introduction: K'NEX ZKAR (Build)

The ZKAR has long been a gun that I have wanted to build. Once built, I found out that it really was all that it was said to be. With that in mind, I decided to bring the instructions of this great gun to instructables. I don't take any credit for the build, as all the credit goes to the original creator, Zak. If you would like to view the original instructions, as mine are not EXACTLY the same, see here.

Features:
  • Bolt action
  • Good range: 50 ft. - 70 ft.
  • Relatively high rate of fire
  • Shoots yellow rods
  • Quite comfortable
  • Open to heavy mods
  • Fun to shoot
  • Easy to build

With all of that being said, lets move on to the first step.

Step 1: Layer #1

In this step you will be building the first layer of the ZKAR. It will be relatively easy, so just follow the pictures. As always just ask if you have any questions, or refer to the original ZKAR instructions.

Step 2: Layer #2

This is the second layer of the ZKAR. Just build and place, as you see in the pictures. Again, if you need help, I'm here.

Step 3: Layer #3

These are the instructions to the third layer of the ZKAR. It will mainly deal with internals. You might have some questions in this step, but if you pay close attention to the image notes, you should have no problems.

Step 4: Layer #4

This is layer four. Again, just follow the pictures and the image notes, ask if you have questions.

Step 5: Layer #5

Here is the last layer. After this, you will just be doing some finishing up. Once you are done with this step, you will be done with the gun itself.

Step 6: The Bolt

In this step you will be building the bolt. All you have to do is build it, and push the pin you want to use into the hole in picture #5.

Step 7: Magazine Pusher

Just build what you see in the pic.

Step 8: Finishing Up

In this step you will be finishing up. Just do as you see and read in the pics. If you have questions, just ask!

Now that you are done, go shoot! Enjoy the ZKAR, mod it, change it, use it.

I have build this awesome gun but the yellow bullets dont flip into the shooting hole (sorry for explanation) so how does it shoot? :/

This looks like it will be fun to make thanks for posting it here. Is there a way to access the other knex gun instructions from KI? I want to build some of them.

Well, at least from what I have heard, KI is down. I don't know if we will ever be able to access it again... kinda sad actually. =(

Yes i know it is down i just thought that someone might have some copies of of instructions from KI maybe like some of the KI founders.
