Introduction: Turreted ZKAR-like Thing

Picture of Turreted ZKAR-like Thing
As the title says, this is some sort of combination between the back part of a ZKAR and a turret.
The internals are made my The Racker, and are from his 'ZKAR All Modded Up'. I changed the stock to fit more with the style of this gun.
Its range with blue rods isnt the best; about 30 feet flat with two old bands. Some mods to the design will make it shoot yellow rods, however, I stopped working on this gun. It's really nothing new, and there are way better executed turreted guns. The only thing this offers is maybe a better rate of fire.
Some stuff summed up:
- ZKAR bolt handle and internals
- 8 Shot turret
- Sort of comfortable (no front grip, so I used my left hand to manually turn the turret)
- About 30 feet of range flat with two old rubberbands
- Pin guide

- The Racker -> Internals and pin guide

Nice. It looks pretty cool. The only things that I'd do if you built it again is to maybe fill in the turret area and not make the stock a rectangle.

Also, I have found that if you don't have the end of the pin touching the back of the rifle then it gets more power. I think your range might improve drastically if you do. :D

The stock indeed is a block, I found it to look the best like this though. The turret area also needs some filling in, but I couldn't find any more gree nrods D:

:I I hate when I run out of vital pieces. :I

And if it works best for you, don't listen to me I guess. It's just what I would've done. Great job, though, and as I said before: try to not let the back of the pin touch the back of the gun next time; I've found that it'll go farther, but maybe it's just me.

Yeah, me too. Too bad it happens way too fast for me, as my amount of K'nex is pretty limited.

As for the pin not touching the back of the gun, do you mean the 'back' as in where the barrel ends? (stock side, that is, not the muzzle side)

What I'm trying to suggest is to have the black female ball socket have some black rod in front of it between the part where the barrel begins. It should improve the range. That's the best way that I an express it in words, sadly. D:

Oh, and is it ok if I use your handle from your "knex pistol" for a project of mine? :3

Ah, okay. I'll see if it helps tomorrow. Then I need to bring the turret backwards a bit (replacing spacers).

And sure!

The pin twists because one side of the bands is tighter than the other. Shift them around a bit until it fixes.

dr. richtofen (author)TheRacker2013-07-23

Oh yeah, sure, haha. That that didn't come up in me, such a simple solution...

Looks durable after you toss it at the end of the video. You should enter this in the Rods & Connectors Contest

Allright, I entered it :)

Adding the video to the slideshow now

dr. richtofen (author)2013-07-23

Doing shooting guns is fun, I should do that more often. Even though I barely have any (if any) good rubberbands left :/ Oh well, trying stuff is good too

dr. richtofen (author)2013-07-23

This one definatly is not near the best of the recent turreted and ZKAR guns. It shoots meh, and the design limits the type of bullets you can put in it.
I don't know why there is a sudden 'hype' for them. Maybe it has something to do with Red's review :/
This one started as a normal ZKAR, until I didn't know how to fit in a mag, and instead of that, put a turret on it.

First comment/view :3 Pretty nice, is the maximum range effective?
