Introduction: Clear BIC Pen Bow and Arrow

Picture of Clear BIC Pen Bow and Arrow is a bow and arrow made of a clear bic pen similar to the regular bic pen bow and arrow created by postapoc with a few moderations that could possibly make it better. (link to bow and arrow by postapoc at beginning) please comment :-)

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

the materials are a bic ultra round stic grip pen, a rubber band and a knife.

Step 2: Pen

Picture of Pen

now take apart the bic pen

Step 3: The Hole

Picture of The Hole

now using the knife make a hole in the pen ,big enough to fit the grip but now to big or else you will break the pen.

Step 4: Grip or Long Thing

Picture of Grip or Long Thing

put the pen grip into the hole that you just made. you can also use the long thing that was used in the other bow and arrow but the grip is better because it is shorter and wider. shortness is good because the ammo will get to the rubber band quickey therefore more power. wideness is good because you can use a lot different ammunitions. ( 2 pictures)

Step 5: Rubber Band

Picture of Rubber Band

now cut 2 notches at the top and bottom of the pen to hold the rubber band in place. once you have cut these slide the rubber bands in place.

Step 6: Launch

Picture of Launch

put your ammo (the ink canister works very well) through the grip or long thing to the rubber band. then pull back the rubber band with the ammo to your desired power and let go.

If you cut the arrows down you can fit a few of them and the bow inside of an altoids tin.

EPL (author)0_02009-11-03

you could do that or use q-tips. how much did you cut them down to?

Just small enough to fit in the tin. Q-tips sound like a good idea though, I'll give that a try.

EPL (author)0_02009-11-10

a kid brought it in to school with q-tips and he shot one into my. literally between the socket and actual eyeball.

Jake_C (author)2009-04-24 was here about 3 years before this...

EPL (author)Jake_C2009-04-25

ok? i joined like 2 months ago, so whats your point?

Jake_C (author)EPL2009-04-27

I'm not saying you intentionally stole it, but look up instructables before you post your idea to see if their are any that are almost identical. If there is a big difference, than post it, but if not, don't.

EPL (author)Jake_C2009-04-27

I realize there are a lot of these types of instrucatbles. this has some small differences such as the grip going through the pen. its a bit shorter also. its clear and looks better.the arrow is smaller.

Jake_C (author)EPL2009-05-02


foxtrot4697 (author)Jake_C2009-05-20

he made this because their is the bic grip stick pens that are different than the ones the other dude uses

Jake_C (author)EPL2009-04-27

BTW, I'm not just talking about you, if I felt like wasting 10 minutes, I could find at least 10 of these, I'm not trying to offend.

joeydarke (author)2009-03-31

how far does this go?

EPL (author)joeydarke2009-03-31

prety far if you pull it back all the way. i'd say about 15 feet if the conditions are rights.

EPL (author)2009-02-21

wow this is great :-)
