Knex Zaktangle: ZKAR V3

Introduction: Knex Zaktangle: ZKAR V3

About: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that who ever believes in him shall not parish but have eternal life." ...

         Hey everybody, I haven't posted anything recently due to my recent move. But, now that I'm settled in my new home, I should be able to start posting stuff again. Anyways, this is the Zaktangle. Mepain took Zak's ZKAR V2 and customized it to have a removable mag. The majority of the credit goes to Mepain and Zak. I have made some modifications to this though, including things such as the bolt and trigger mechanism. The bolt (Thanks to the majority of it's design by The Red Book of Westmarch) I customized it so it was locked down onto the firing pin guide and allowed more band usage. And the new trigger mechanism can allow a lot more force to be used on the firing pin band wise. No tape is required for the trigger to be reinforced. It's a much more compact and strong mechanism to hold more power that lets the trigger to be easily pulled. This gun has hardly been seen due to it's lack of photos. Mepain made a video on this particular gun on YouTube. That was about all the public could see. But a year ago I found a source that had internal pictures of the gun. So since then I was able to construct the gun from those photos. Unfortunately, thanks to Mepain, those photos were deleted since Mepain found out about some people viewing them. So I now release this gun with a lot of modifications to it to the public so everyone can get a good glimpse at it. Now stats:

Pros:
45ft-52ft (measured)
Good looking (In My Opinion)
NO CUT PIECES! (Yay!)
Removable mag
Bolt-Action
Compact
Strong trigger mechanism
A lot of bands can be used
Comfortable
Structurally strong
High ROF

Cons:
There are none!

    It was nice but there wasn't enough room for my finger in the trigger area; the thing that keeps the mags in place by the trigger cuts off a lot of room my finger would've used :/

    Yeah, that happened with me as well, but you have to understand that this thing wasn't even made by me. It was all thanks to Mepain and Zak.

    Ha... Cool... You've got my vote for the contest... It does seem familiar though... Is it based on a well known gun? I can't quite put my finger on what it is that seems so familiar about it... Lol JK very nice work man, I love the ZKAR, seems like you did a good job on it. Very good aesthetics too... Nice, keep it up!

    I have, actually, but VERY VERY slowly. I've been working on the same gun for about 8 months now, but I've barely actually worked on it per se, I've just had too many things going on in my life and knex isn't such a big interest anymore, but I do plan on finishing it, hopefully before the end of summer, once I finish up all my homework and my girlfriend goes away for vacation... I'll have plenty of time then and unless something comes up or I'll find myself very lazy (A considerably likely situation XD), I'll try to work on it to finish it up. It's a true fully functional lever action w/ horizontal blue rod mag w/ internal pusher (Think about it, that's extremely complicated). I think a lot of people will agree it's one of the most innovative guns ever posted, when I post it. I think it should all work, the mag already does... If the pin cocking mech fails, I might call it a failed project and still post it, because the mag alone is AWESOME. Whatever, more updates in the future...
