Knex TZKAR-18

Introduction: Knex TZKAR-18

About: Hi. I've sold off about 99% of my k'nex, but I still come here to check in on instructables, every 2 weeks or so. I like seeing what's new in the k'nex, and also other sections. I may or may not post my K'n...

I finally got around to making a ZKAR for the first time. It was an amazing gun when it had the mag and bolt action, except when the ammo would end up too far from the pin to hit it. So I found my TR-18 turret from the TR-18 I had a while ago and put it on the ZKAR. It also has a wheel that allows the turret to wind up similar to the BR-8. And this gun can hold all 18 shots over a standard BR at the cost of a mutilated yellow connector. Now for some stats I suppose?



Pros:
Powerful
Good range = 35-55ft with 1 #64 band
Durable
Fast ROF
Turret
Accurate


Cons:
Mutilated part
Rarely will not shoot the ammo

    Could you tell me how you did the wind-up thing on an 18 Turret?

    Awesome! The only thing is, that it looks like it could snap in half if you hold it sideways.

    Thanks! :P This gun when I had it was actually strong structurally despite it's looks.

    Yea, I wanted to build a ZKAR so I chose yours because of how convincing the trigger looked; but the ammo would end up too far from the pin's striking range. So after many mods, I eventually ended up with this thing.

    Oh and you did the pin guide wrong, just had to point that out.

    It is too low. It may still work, but you are causing tons of friction. Have the back mounted the way I have mine.

    Ammo may have been doing that because the bullet lock was too weak. If you use Zak's original bullet lock it would work.

    Not sure if I will post or not, It will take a while to take apart; and you need a mutilated yellow con for it to work.

    Lol, that yellow connector is no problem for me, since I have over 15 broken -_- You can try to take it apart in parts?

    Lol, having over 15 broken yellows sounds not too good to me. Just kidding.
