Introduction: K'NEX ZKAR (Build)

About: K'NEX gun builder here at Instructables. More or less retired from the community, but I still pop in now and again.
The ZKAR has long been a gun that I have wanted to build. Once built, I found out that it really was all that it was said to be. With that in mind, I decided to bring the instructions of this great gun to instructables. I don't take any credit for the build, as all the credit goes to the original creator, Zak. If you would like to view the original instructions, as mine are not EXACTLY the same, see here.

  • Bolt action
  • Good range: 50 ft. - 70 ft.
  • Relatively high rate of fire
  • Shoots yellow rods
  • Quite comfortable
  • Open to heavy mods
  • Fun to shoot
  • Easy to build

With all of that being said, lets move on to the first step.

Step 1: Layer #1

In this step you will be building the first layer of the ZKAR. It will be relatively easy, so just follow the pictures. As always just ask if you have any questions, or refer to the original ZKAR instructions.

Step 2: Layer #2

This is the second layer of the ZKAR. Just build and place, as you see in the pictures. Again, if you need help, I'm here.

Step 3: Layer #3

These are the instructions to the third layer of the ZKAR. It will mainly deal with internals. You might have some questions in this step, but if you pay close attention to the image notes, you should have no problems.

Step 4: Layer #4

This is layer four. Again, just follow the pictures and the image notes, ask if you have questions.

Step 5: Layer #5

Here is the last layer. After this, you will just be doing some finishing up. Once you are done with this step, you will be done with the gun itself.

Step 6: The Bolt

In this step you will be building the bolt. All you have to do is build it, and push the pin you want to use into the hole in picture #5.

Step 7: Magazine Pusher

Just build what you see in the pic.

Step 8: Finishing Up

In this step you will be finishing up. Just do as you see and read in the pics. If you have questions, just ask!

Now that you are done, go shoot! Enjoy the ZKAR, mod it, change it, use it.
