Introduction: A-1 Powerful Mini Lego Crossbow

This is my latest crossbow, the A-1 Light. This crossbow is fairly small, however it is extremely powerful for its size, depending on what rubber bands you use. I got a 2x2 lego brick to go 30 feet! The crossbow is only about 8 inches long. It doesn't require many pieces compared to my larger and heavier crossbows. It is also suprisingly accurate as well!

Step 1: Underside

This is the first part of the underside of the gun. Note that the next steps pretty much just build onto this, opposed to making seperate parts and putting them together

Step 2: Overside

This is very easy to do

Step 3: Sight

Easy sight to build, very accurate.

Step 4: Trigger

This trigger is the same one as my C-2 Crossbow

Step 5: Rubber Band Holder

Step 6: Rubber Bands + Handholds

Pretty easy. Try and use the pink rubber bands, they are good at firing, and are strong

Step 7: Ammo and Loading

The ammo is a 2x2 brick, with a flat piece on top.

I gotta hand it to ya, this is genius. I tried to make one myself and the trigger always messed me up, (since the rubberband was all on the top part of the bow) and i couldnt get it to fire. Then i saw these pics and they really helped. Thanks once again :D

I looked at your website and other guns, and I gotta say that you got some talent! Good work!
Your crossbows inspired me to make my own. I just spent 3 hours making one and just finished at 1:47 am. My trigger locks in place and does not counter-balance rubber bands. It works okay, but no real tests until I can get to my house.
