This is the second crossbow I have made in the C series. It is very powerful, and has many improvements over the second one. Some improvements compared to the C-1 are:
-More difficult for ammo to fall off the gun
-Uses less pieces
-Easier to build
-Fires Lego 2x4 Studs
The C2 Firing:
The Mod- The C2.1
The C2.1 Firing At A Can
The crossbow has a 30 foot range when fired horizontally, and can go much further when fired in the air. I added a grove to the crossbow, so the Lego ammo won't fall off as easily. I lengthened the 'barrel', and moved the rubber band holder things in the top closer to the barrel, so technically the elastic is just as long as it was before, but now it stays with the bolt longer, giving it the power which this crossbow has. It can fire approx. one bolt every 6 seconds.

This crossbow is easier to build than my other one.
When I say something like "1/3 brick", I mean those flat slabs (because you need three of them to equal a whole brick.
