Introduction: Knex Zaktangle: ZKAR V3

         Hey everybody, I haven't posted anything recently due to my recent move. But, now that I'm settled in my new home, I should be able to start posting stuff again. Anyways, this is the Zaktangle. Mepain took Zak's ZKAR V2 and customized it to have a removable mag. The majority of the credit goes to Mepain and Zak. I have made some modifications to this though, including things such as the bolt and trigger mechanism. The bolt (Thanks to the majority of it's design by The Red Book of Westmarch) I customized it so it was locked down onto the firing pin guide and allowed more band usage. And the new trigger mechanism can allow a lot more force to be used on the firing pin band wise. No tape is required for the trigger to be reinforced. It's a much more compact and strong mechanism to hold more power that lets the trigger to be easily pulled. This gun has hardly been seen due to it's lack of photos. Mepain made a video on this particular gun on YouTube. That was about all the public could see. But a year ago I found a source that had internal pictures of the gun. So since then I was able to construct the gun from those photos. Unfortunately, thanks to Mepain, those photos were deleted since Mepain found out about some people viewing them. So I now release this gun with a lot of modifications to it to the public so everyone can get a good glimpse at it. Now stats:

Pros:
45ft-52ft (measured)
Good looking (In My Opinion)
NO CUT PIECES! (Yay!)
Removable mag
Bolt-Action
Compact
Strong trigger mechanism
A lot of bands can be used
Comfortable
Structurally strong
High ROF

Cons:
There are none!

It was nice but there wasn't enough room for my finger in the trigger area; the thing that keeps the mags in place by the trigger cuts off a lot of room my finger would've used :/

Yeah, that happened with me as well, but you have to understand that this thing wasn't even made by me. It was all thanks to Mepain and Zak.

Man, it's stuff like this that makes me want to break out the K'NEX again!

Haha right, it's been a while! I'm thinking about maybe doing one last project...

I hope to be able to get around to it soon!

I'm still thinking about building it, got the idea in my head and everything! I just need to get around to it, hopefully sometime this month I can finish it.
