What is a bolt-action k'nex gun? Answered

 I realize it separates the bullet from the rest, but how does this work?  Could somebody make me a diagram?

In knex, this means the bullet loads in a separate chamber.  When the bolt is pulled back, the pin and bolt go back to let the round load.  When you push the bolt forward, the bolt goes forward, but not the pin since the trigger is blocking it.  The bolt pushes the round from this separate chamber into the main barrel.

My AR-4 v3 demonstrates this concept and you should take a look at it for more info.

Look at the zkar instructions.  It has the simplest bolt-action mech and it is easy to see how it is done.
