Zoraki 914 & R1 9mm and Kimar Lady K 8mm Blank Gun Test Fire

Related Posts:

Below is my YouTube Video of the Zoraki Mod.914, Zoraki Mod.R1 (2.5) and Kimar Lady K Blank Guns. I fire 9mm and 8mm P.A.K blank ammunition through these guns and even show off the Zoraki Mod.914 in full auto firing mode. In the YouTube Videos I also slow down the video to one-quarter speed so you can really see the action of these blank guns.

ZORAKI R1 (2.5) 9mm P.A.K. BLANK REVOLVER REVIEW

Related Posts:

Type: Blank Gun.
Manufacturer: Zoraki - Atak Arms.
Model: Zoraki R1 2.5.
Materials: All metal with plastic grips.
Weight: 1.7 pounds.
Barrel: 2.5 inches, semi plugged - front firing.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Single and double action.
Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. or 380 R Blanks.
Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds.
FPS: N/A.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull is good overall, even in double action mode it is smooth and not too heavy, in single action mode it is even lighter and shorter.
Accuracy: NA.
Build Quality: The overall build quality of this gun is very good. The design and materials all seem to be good quality. The cosmetics look good but when closely inspected there are small imperfections such as tool marks and some finishing blemishes. Not a big deal but if you are picky about this kind of thing then it may turn you off a bit.
Realism: This gun in theory is not supposed to be a replica of any gun in production but it does resemble many common snub nosed revolvers available such as the Rossi Snub Nosed Revolvers. It would be hard to tell the difference between the Zoraki R1 and a real snub nosed revolver even side by side. The only real tell tale sign would be if you looked at the front of the cylinder, you may notice the front bullet ports are smaller than they should be, more like a 22 caliber. The Zoraki looks and feels like a real gun, so make sure to take precautions when using this blank revolver!
Purchased From: CanadaAmmo.com.

Pros:

  • In Canada it is one of the few Blank guns available for purchase that is not prohibited.
  • All metal construction, with the exception of the grips.
  • Attractive styling, many finishing options available.
  • Well priced.

Cons:

  • Finishing detail could be better.
  • Pistol grips are hard plastic, would be better in rubber.
  • 9mm P.A.K. Blank ammo is expensive.

Comments:
The Zoraki R1 (2.5) is a nice addition to my Replica gun collection, if you are a Canadian then there are few options available to us if you want to legally own a Blank shooter. I do like the look of this Zoraki snub nosed revolver, especially in the two-tone configuration that I purchased. I'm not sure of the availability of Zoraki gun in other parts of the world but in the US there is another Snub Nosed Revolver that is virtually identical, made by the company Viper for about $99.

Zoraki R1 (2.5) Blank Revolver Arrives!

Related Posts:

WOW! That was fast shipping from CanadaAmmo.com!!! I ordered my Zoraki R1 (2.5) Blank Revolver on Tuesday the 28th and got it today the 30th! I got my tracking number today expecting it to have an estimated arrival day sometime next week and when I checked it out it said it was already at the post office waiting for me. I don't know exactly where CanadaAmmo.com is located but from my tracking info it looks like they may be located somewhere in Vancouver BC which is very close to where I live.

I will be posting a more thorough review with Video hopefully sometime next week on the Zoraki R1 (2.5) Blank Revolver but for now I wanted to give you my first impressions with a few photos.

The gun comes in a nice box wrapped inside a plastic bag to keep the other accessories from scratching it along the way. Mine was pretty greasy and needed a wipe down and then a re-oil but that's better than dry and rusty any day. Inside the case there is a manual, a cleaning rod and a flare adaptor. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that CanadaAmmo.com gave me a FREE pack of targets (with their marketing on it of course).

The gun looks great and I love the two-tone Satin/Black finish that I selected. Mine had a few tool marks on it but over all it's not bad and I am sure it will get more marks along the way...

The gun is a good size and weight, not huge or not small either. It does not feel cheap and looks more like a real gun than a blank gun. The Canadian Zoraki R1 (2.5) Blank Revolver discharges out of the front of the barrel like my other Zoraki Mod.914 which is always very nice and more realistic.

The Zoraki R1 uses 9mm blanks and can take the standard 9mm P.A.K rounds but they seem a bit loose and may not eject properly. I believe the right ammo to use would be the Crimped Blank 9mm rounds which I do not have. (If anyone knows where I can get some 9mm crimped blanks in Canada please let me know?)

I look forward to shooting this well made Zoraki Blank gun sometime in October amongst the other Halloween explosions...

Zoraki R1 (2.5) Blank Revolver on its way.

Related Posts:

I'm generally not a big revolver fan, but I kind of like the look of this little snub nosed 9mm Blank shooting revolver by Atak Arms. (Thanks to Rob who who sent me a comment about this gun being available in Canada)

To be honest, I find it weird that a bunch of these Zoraki blank guns are allowed in Canada, and I have a feeling it may all come to an end, so my plan is to acquire all three before the party's over! I already have the Zoraki 914 Semi/Full Auto in Gloss Black and I just ordered up a Zoraki R1 (2.5) Revolver in Satin with Black grips from CanadaAmmo.com. So all that's left is the Zoraki 925 Semi/Full Auto. The 925 is basically a re-skined 914 that looks like a small compact UZI machine-gun and it even has an optional 25 round magazine!

So hopefully I get my Zoraki R1 next week some time and I can include it in my October field test where I plan to fire off all my Blank guns. The plan is to have this coincide with all the Halloween fireworks noise.
