ZKAR problems. Any fixes? Answered

Ok, so I've noticed an issue with the ZKAR (Both the breech loading and normal versions).  If I push the bolt forward too fast, it results in the round being loaded too far up the barrel, where the pin can't hit it and thus can't shoot it out of the gun.  Sometimes the round even sticks out of the gun.  A side effect of this issue is that the pin guide connection breaks when the gun is shot because at this point the failed shot is treated as a dry fire.

Any fixes?


don't pust the bolt foward too fast then...

thats kinda hard if the gun is jumping all over the place from rapid fire, exactly why sniper rifles are not fully automatic...

What TD said, to solve it try using a triple folded #64 on the bullet lock.

#64's won't fit on my ZKAR bullet lock but I'll try it with different bands.

My guess is you need a stronger bullet lock then.

I have that issue also but i just got into the thing of sliding it forward more slowly.

Push the sides of the gun together to create more friction.

ahhh... check that the bullet lock is very strong...

Not a problem for my zkar. For my zkar pin, I have just a ball socket connector and a tan lock, so the pin extends farther into the gun. No matter how fast I push the bolt forward, my zkar alwyas shoots. Hope that helps. I don't have a pin guide on mine, it just got in the way for me. If you have a pin guide, change the tan lock to a grey connector.

That's bypassing the pin guide, which I don't want to do. Besides, Zak and bitz and Mepain have had it working with the normal pin.

I told you how to put on a pin guide if you wanted too. Just change the tan lock to a grey connector and put the pin guide on.

I have noticed this, the grey connector inside the gun that holds the bullet in place is the problem, it isn't storng enough on its own to hold it up, I put a tiny band around it to hold it in place, so there is more friction for the bullet to stay at the right place.
