"Shanti" bow

My newest project, the "Shanti" bow, or the D-TAB v1 (dual-turret assault bow)  Brings out a whole new era of shotbows.  The D-TAB v1 uses a turret for optimum performance.  What is unique about this bow, however, is that it uses two turrets, firing them simultaneously.  It also uses the very first compound bow system that I have seen in knex.  This gives it an extra thrust of power while the firing pin is accelerating to the turrets.  This is truly my greatest creation yet (but I had to take apart my prized hell slayer :( p.s. build that gun!), and will continue to get better.  Unlike zak and his "sexbow", I will be posting this.  Here are a few pics and a video should be up shortly.  Let me know what ya think.

Pros.
-Turrets for performance and quick reload
-Great range (havent measured yet but I'm guessing around 50ft with the bands used-you can add much more)
-Compound bow system
-Textured foregrip
-Perfect war gun
-SK's easy to use ram and guide

Cons.
-Inaccurate at range

Credit also goes to knexfreek for the trigger (though I probably be using a different one because I can't find a way to put a safety on his)

Ah, you used my pivot bow mechanism idea thingy.  Does it work well?
its called a torsion system
Kinetic (author)  knexguy8 years ago
 Yours?  Not sure what you mean by that but yes it does work well
knexguy Kinetic7 years ago
Well, technically I was the first to come up with the concept, but I guess you just thought of it by yourself.  It never really worked out for me, so I was asking if it was good.

 Ah whatever great minds think alike XD

Very good effort. I would take some of the bulk out of the stock if I was you, looks a tad silly. And like others have said, strengthen up the front part. Other than that, very good! :)
Kinetic (author)  Storm9508 years ago
 Yeah, I was going to change the stock for the instructable.  And it isn't that the front isn't string, its that I used too strong rubber bands to wind the turrets to the rod that sticks out that the pin hits is pushing against the part that holds it in place, pushing them down a little
