Introduction: Zip3 Pump-Bolt-Action K'nex Gun Preview
It's offical the Zip series is my most popular knex gun series with Zip2 accumulating about 850 views. So when it comes to designing the next patriarch of my gun family I wanted to aim big, not so much size wise but performance and I definitely hit the mark. This is my most innovative and efficient knex gun I've built so far, featuring: removable preloadable magazines, pump operated bolt action, an extra magazine in the stock, and 40-60ft of range with two rubberbands.Well some other stats of interest:
Appearance is big and bold.
Easy and smooth bolt action.
40-60 feet range.
Can't complain everything works really well.
Three cut rods per magazine. My bad, but not to terrible.
Pump isn't very comfy, but it works well.
Cannot be dry fired.
Uses more pieces than Zip2.
Feel free to ask questions and thanks for looking at my latest Zip3!I will post this gun after Buzzsaw so please stay tuned for more pictures and updates.
Well I have added internals of the latest version of Zip3. The first picture mainly shows the pump assembly and where the extensions to the ram rod go. The second picture shows the magazine in the gun. It shows the rods that attach the pump to the ram rod are right about the magazine, which also allows the gun to be 5 layers thick. The 25 picture is of the chambering mechanism which makes the gun as good as it is.
