This is my armless crossbow. It uses a common rail design found on many Instructables on this site. The trigger may or may not be original; it's been so long since I made this that I don't remember. If it is yours, please comment and I'll give you credit.

Step 1: Upper Barrel

Here you will be building the barrel. It can be as long as you like; just remember to add one rubber band to the chain for every four segments of body. I have tested this number and it is the most accurate way to get a good amount of power from this gun. The barrel shown here uses a chain of three rubber bands. Build what you see in the pictures. Build only one.
If It Doesn't Have Arms, It Is Not A Crossbow, It Is A Shotbow.
is this hard 2 make <br>
how far does it shoot?
I haven't had this thing for over three years.
This is not a crossbow.
i made it piece by piece bu i cant figure out the firing mechanism with the rubber bands and such 0.o can you make a vid on youtube? please
no; i do NOT post videos. maybe i'll add notes now that ive figured out how.
what is the purple piece at the end of the trigger
oh, that's the same as a grey one-slot.it came in a box with weirdly colored pieces.
So it's a slingshot.
yes. it's actually pretty easy to make and uses relatively few pieces for its type
so its not a crossbow its a slingshot
You lose. I call it an ARMLESS crossbow because of its origin as a standard crossbow. It's ARMLESS because I removed the arms and attached the rubberbands elsewhere.
You lose. I called it an ARMLESS crossbow because it began as a crossbow whose arms I've removed. SO SHUT UP ABOUT IT.
well you did not say that though did you in the instructable p.s am i annoying you
actually, i did in the NAME OF THE THING.
