Introduction: Knex TZKAR-18

Picture of Knex TZKAR-18

I finally got around to making a ZKAR for the first time. It was an amazing gun when it had the mag and bolt action, except when the ammo would end up too far from the pin to hit it. So I found my TR-18 turret from the TR-18 I had a while ago and put it on the ZKAR. It also has a wheel that allows the turret to wind up similar to the BR-8. And this gun can hold all 18 shots over a standard BR at the cost of a mutilated yellow connector. Now for some stats I suppose?

Good range = 35-55ft with 1 #64 band
Fast ROF

Mutilated part
Rarely will not shoot the ammo

Bakenbitz/GrandeSwag for the Swagboss front end
Zak for his ZKAR rifle base
TheRacker for the trigger mod

Could you tell me how you did the wind-up thing on an 18 Turret?

beanieostrich (author)2012-08-20

That was exactly the point of this one. :P Thanks! :D

PotatoCoffee (author)2012-08-19

Awesome! The only thing is, that it looks like it could snap in half if you hold it sideways.

Thanks! :P This gun when I had it was actually strong structurally despite it's looks.

really nice gun !

TheRacker (author)2012-02-18

It's nice to see that people actually use my work. Thanks!

beanieostrich (author)TheRacker2012-02-18

Yea, I wanted to build a ZKAR so I chose yours because of how convincing the trigger looked; but the ammo would end up too far from the pin's striking range. So after many mods, I eventually ended up with this thing.

TheRacker (author)beanieostrich2012-02-19

Oh and you did the pin guide wrong, just had to point that out.

beanieostrich (author)TheRacker2012-02-19

Thats strange, it worked flawlessly like the way I have it.

TheRacker (author)beanieostrich2012-02-19

It is too low. It may still work, but you are causing tons of friction. Have the back mounted the way I have mine.

beanieostrich (author)TheRacker2012-02-20

Yea, it does look a little low compared to yours.

TheRacker (author)beanieostrich2012-02-19

Ammo may have been doing that because the bullet lock was too weak. If you use Zak's original bullet lock it would work.

Thanks for the comment. What is wrong with this gun in particular?

H1T4TCH1 (author)2012-02-05

That's worth a sweet and warm 5 stars. Could you post?

beanieostrich (author)H1T4TCH12012-02-05

Not sure if I will post or not, It will take a while to take apart; and you need a mutilated yellow con for it to work.

H1T4TCH1 (author)beanieostrich2012-02-08

Lol, that yellow connector is no problem for me, since I have over 15 broken -_- You can try to take it apart in parts?

beanieostrich (author)H1T4TCH12012-02-08

Sounds good then. I will post by next week most likely. :)

H1T4TCH1 (author)beanieostrich2012-02-09

Lol, having over 15 broken yellows sounds not too good to me. Just kidding.

I'll be waiting for it man!

The Chunky Sniper! (author)2012-01-31

Not bad at all Beanie!

For a second I thought you were someone else lol. Thanks! :)

Lol, I did post my name-change in the forums.

I know that, I just forgot about the change of name.

Knex.X (author)2012-02-02

A bit..... basic
Also I don't believe this shoots 55 feet with only 1 64 rubberband.
The best range I ever got was 60 feet with the blaze mini sniper rifle
and the best bolt action range I ever got was 30 feet with my ZKAR
(with 3 brand new 64 rubbers)

beanieostrich (author)Knex.X2012-02-02

I know. This gun shoots about 43ft on average right now. My best range was with my creeping death Mk9 and Mk8; they shot about 200ft every time.

Dirtyboyy (author)2012-02-01

I love guns like this.. I give you 5* for it mate!

beanieostrich (author)Dirtyboyy2012-02-01

Cheers! :)

Dirtyboyy (author)beanieostrich2012-02-02

Lol your last comment.. 'Cheers! :)' This was comment nummer 500!! Thanks dude hahhahahaa

beanieostrich (author)Dirtyboyy2012-02-02

No problem. :)

~KnexBuild~ (author)2012-01-31

Awesome! 5 stars and faved.

Thanks. :)

No problem.

Senior Waffleman (author)2012-01-31

This is cool, you should post :D

I may post this one, I just need to make it shoot flawlessly and add a few more things to it.

Ok cool :)

beanieostrich (author)2012-01-31

Thanks man. :)

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)2012-01-31

Not really worth the build. I'd just build the swagboss it's more efficient. Plus you can shoot two bullets at one time.

I agree with you about the swagboss, but I just wanted to have a connector body TR-18 to play around with. Thanks for commenting. :)

dr. richtofen (author)2012-01-30


Thank you. :)

no problemo =)

~Meme~ (author)2012-01-31

Aw. What happened to your buy this gun at ammunition today! Still, I like the sscr' a bit better.4.5*

beanieostrich (author)~Meme~2012-01-31

I just thought the ammunation thing was getting old and childish. And thank you. :)

~Meme~ (author)beanieostrich2012-01-31

Oh, I thought you may say that. It was quite funny.

Could you maybe post internals for the SSCR IV?

beanieostrich (author)~Meme~2012-01-31

If you really want to build, then be prepared to cut at least 3 orange connectors, and a green rod needs to be cut for the trigger.

~Meme~ (author)beanieostrich2012-01-31

Sure, ok. How many yellow connectors are used?

beanieostrich (author)~Meme~2012-01-31

This is not an exact number, but I would say around 65-70 yellow connectors.

~Meme~ (author)beanieostrich2012-01-31

Aw.=( I only have about 30 or 40.

beanieostrich (author)~Meme~2012-01-31

Oh well. I knew you might end up saying something like that. I know this and the TZKAR use over 100 yellow cons. I never did count my total amount of parts either.

Looks good. but the pictures are a little dark (nothing too big)
