Introduction: Knex Zip 3 Review

Does a bolt action pump action gun sound good for a knex war! What if I told you that it shoots far faster than a tr-8 and uses removable mags....does it sound good yet?

I decided to rebuild Johnny B Good's Zip 3 and put it through its paces and here were my results......

Range: 40-60 ft

ROF: as fast as you can pump and pull the trigger

Ammo: yellow rods

Mag: removable pre load able 10 round mags

Pros:

Extreme ROF
Good range
Bolt action
Pre load able mags
Spare mag storage
Finammo can be loaded through top part of bolt action mech

Cons:

A little flimsy
Can't put many bands on it
Big for a war
Nothin much else!

In my honest but slightly biased and bribable opinion I would much rather have this than the tr-8 and when compared to the Weapon Of War I would have a hard decision!

To this day, I feel that Zip3 is my most unique and best pump action knex gun. Awesome review! I'm glad you like it enough to build it twice!
Which trigger are you using in the gun? The one from the instructions or Killerk revision?

Indeed it is the best pump gun on instructables! I used a slightly modded version of the instructions trigger

Haha, I've built this gun twice! It's pretty fun to use. I'll send Jonny a message to bring him over to see your review.
