Vice CKG Bolt Action Rifle Answered

I haven't posted anything for a few months, and I decided to begin work on something that would blow everyone away.  My goal was to create the most efficient, most power, most versatile mag fed knex rifle ever.  I discovered a way to do that when I came up with the Bullet Transfer System (BTS) that you saw in my BTPA pump action rifle.  However, the BTPA had a several drawbacks.  The first was the size of it.  It was just way too big.  Second was that the ammo it shot was connector ammo, and would start spinning out very quickly.  Last was that the ram barely had any time to accelerate,  as the bullet was placed right above the handle.  I suddenly thought of a design that would solve these problems, quickly drew them out, and began work.  The result was the most efficient, versatile, and powerful mag fed gun ever made, the Vice CKG.  CKG stands for Compact Knex Gun, and I am truly proud if it.  The trigger is a variation of Zak's so I give him credit for that.  So exactly how efficient is this gun?  I was able to get 60+ feet with a string of two #64s with the long range round.  The yellow rods get around 50 feet, only because they spin out after a while, but with two #64s unsharpened yellows can go right through a box from a few feet away.  What's the secret to this incredible efficiency?  First off, the firing pin is a grey rod+a gray connector long, giving it that extra room to accelerate.  Second, the trigger is as far back as possible.  Third, the rods are placed as far away from the ram, giving it time to accelerate.  Finally, the BTS allows the bullet to stay in place with nearly no contact between the bullet and the gun.  

(I know that statement may sound a little bold, but I am very confident in saying it)

60+ feet range single shot with two #64s
50 feet range with yellows with two #64s
Extremely versatile (perfect for long and close range)
Looks great
15 yellow rod mag capacity
You will dominate the battlefield

Reload time (for me anyways)

This video is a little out of date, I have made some upgrades since it was made/


The instructions are up just click my profile to view them.

I am going to attempt to build this if it works I will post instructions..

Slightly different trigger, different transfer system, different mag, different handle, different pin guide, literally completely different.

Unless you were talking about your own zkar ible, well then yeah it's basically the same thing. But you replied to the guy wanting to build the VICE with your ible to help him, and knowing how to build the zkar is not at all helpful for this gun.

I built it a while ago, it isn't that great. Just build the zkar. It uses tons of parts and doesn't actually perform any better.

You should really make instructions for this gun. I have already buitl the ZKAR and it was pretty good. So if this is better that....... WOW

It wont be if he hurries the hell up and posts it.

I built it exactly as the pictures showed.  There is no way the constrution could have been differet.  The bts worked fine, the pin just didn't accelerate fast enough to get any power with the bands he tells you to use.

a little late, but i think your problem was either a mis-connected part in the barrel, or you didn't take the bolt forward after cocking.

Would someone be willing to make an instructable for this?

It was alright, but I'm interested in the uniqueness of this design.

What's so unique about this design? This has the same bolt action mech as the ZKAR, and the only real non-cosmetic difference is the angled mag.

a little late, i know, but relax, man. why are you so defensive of the ZKAR? this is (cosmetically) cleaner and works better, according to my experience with both this and the ZKAR (and quite a few mods of the ZKAR).

Build this gun!
It's awesome! Much better then the ZKAR.
It's even better then he said if you use the right rubber bands!

You were able to figure it out? Congrats and thanks for the feedback. Sorry I never got around to making an instructable, I thought it was too similar to the zkar to be called my own, but the performance is exceptional. Would you mind making an instructable? I took it apart a while ago so I cant. Its up to you and im glad you like it.

Post ASAP or I will hunt you down, remove your arm and beat you to death with it.

Kinetic, If you're not going to post this,and it has to be where I have to build it from the pictures,then I will. For the love of god please post the vice. I've been waitin' FOREVER! Please respond to my comment.

Great !! XD 4*

Hey kinetic, if you don't post then I will lol.

 Can you?  I can't find my card adapter.

Sorry man, that was a joke. I yanked on your chain that time. Besides I don't even have the actual gun built lol.  I just love being the comical stud. XD

I have it 90% done, im really busy, I will prolly finish it tomorrow or over the weekend.

Then I guess you can post it, it doesn't really bother me who does, as long as it's posted.

It was terrible for me. It barely shot across my room. The bolt-action mech was fine, but for some reason the ramrod would not accelerate fast enough to get any power. When I put more bands on, the grey connector broke. I built it exactly as the pictures are.

Find it!  Please!  I've been waiting months!

Are you seriously like, so in love with this thing that you obviously can't post it?? Or did your dog eat the vice instead of your homework lol. Come on man, we know you better than that. You made a promise, I think it's best if you keep that promise, and live up to your word.

Don't build this gun, it is a giant dissapointment.

Dude, post this and the BTPA-7 already,they're awesome!

 This will be up shortly-the BTPA is long gone sorry.  However I am designing a pump action that will blow everyone away.

WOOT! Thank god you're at least posting this one. Cause I wouldn't be the same without an i'ble for it. Btw, is the new pump action you mentioned as good as the BTPA, or better?

I'm geussing better, or he wouldn't have made it in the first place.

You are actually posting soon????????

 Yes.  I am sorry I have been "dead" in this site for a bit-ive had a lot of stuff going on lately.  This will be up soon, then i plan to go out with a bang.
