AR4-v3 VS ZKAR Answered

i wanted to do a little thing on to see which gun is better AR4-v3 or the ZKAR?

AR4-v3 advantages: The AR4 is a good gun, so I'll point out the advantages of it. This gun is jam free, has very good range (52 feet), has some good looks, easy to load, no cut parts, powerful, doesn't use that much pieces, nicely designed, good for sniping, comfortable, would be great for a war, and is very light to carry.

AR4-v3 disadvantages: Every knex gun isn't perfect so I'll point out some disadvantages of this gun. The sights are not accurate and has a original trigger system. i couldn't think of any other disadvantages, point out any more out to me if you can.

ZKAR v2 advantages: This gun is light to carry, has awesome range (40-50), good for a knex war, fast loading, accurate sights, powerful, uses few pieces, no cut parts, jam free, comfortable, good trigger system, and very well designed.

ZKAR v2 disadvantages: of course again, not all knex guns are perfect not that new of a trigger design, and has cut parts.

overall both guns are really good for the ar4 better for sniping, for the zkar better for closer range.

The gun I would have for a war is *drum roll starts playing* the.........................ZKAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! congratulations that gun just won one million dollars (not really). also the reason why i chose this gun is because it holds more ammo than the ar4, this gun also has a nice design, very neat on how it works, and is one of the best guns for a war is what i think



this whole thread was posted by me like half a year ago. Kind of a late comment.

an AR4 v3 disadvantage it is bad for knex war because if you run around the ammo will fall out.
and it is not jam free (infact i had to mod mine not to jam on every shot.).

Not really, If you use the 9 round mag, the ammo will never fall out.  It never jammed for me.

same here i had to mod mine too, the gun tore up a lot of my pieces

Well I wouldn't use the ZKAR or AR4-v3. But if I had to use one I would use the AR4-v3. I could never get the ZKAR to shoot, let alone get 35 feet. The AR4-v3 at least shoot but not vary far, maybe 20 feet at most. So I would say the AR4-v3 would win.

Really? I put 4 #64's on my pin, and got 70+ft. flat. Up to about 80 angled.
I thinks yousa did somethin wrong.
No offense.
And again, I'd choose ZBA because of the fact that it has a bullet lock, and therefore the chambered round won't fall out.

I have a modded AR-4 v3 that has a bullet lock as well.

Really? Post a pic dude!

I posted a forum topic, click my name for it.

Uh, if you don't get guns to work how they're supposed to, you're meant to fix it.

Try removing that white connector at the end of the tan lock barrel. The one where the bullets get shot out of.

Whatever. My version is the second best AR-4 v3 ever made in terms of power/range. It gets anywhere between 50-60 feet. 22222222539 got his version up to 80 feet, and I believe him.

I watched his video. It looked like it went 60 feet with a crosswind, without that crosswind, it would probably go 80.

Zakgun would win. End of. It has no friction on the mag, since the bullet is moved into a different barrel. Think logically, a gun with no pressure from other bullets will get alot better range than one with pressure. So I doubt AR4 is like 50 feet and Zakgun is only 30. Also, Zakgun is bolt action, so it takes a little longer to cock (this isn't a bad thing though) so it might not be better for CQC, but it has better accuracy, and range, so I guess it evens out.

Mine is also true bolt action like the Zakgun. A round in the barrel does not get touched by the other rounds in the hopper. If anything, range is the same with our guns.

Waaat? I though AR 4 thingy was the gun with the blue rod mag thing?

That was an older version posted back in October. The one everyone else is talking about is true bolt action, and has a yellow rod hopper.

Ah poo, I should really look more lol.

Lol gees Dyl. I still prefer the ZKAR. It's just cleaner looking to me. Though that's more of opinion.

Why? If everything else checks off as similar then that leaves the structure to decide which is better to me. It's my opinion and I like how the ZKAR is built.

Ok, my new modded version is more powerful than the last time I made it.  Lolz.

I don't know, and I don't care. Screw the rules, I have an awesome knex gun!

I would feel compelled to counter if you said more than just "owned". This is just weak.

The AR4 uses a similar bolt action mech to the zkar. And many other factors affect range.

Our bolt action mechs are very different. Even though they do the same thing, mine is top loaded, his is bottom loaded. And the barrels are also different as well.
