i made it . it's funny bud not powerfull i get 40 feet ...
It is a good crossbow, but it might help if you had clearer pictures and put all the parts in, instead of "Oh yeah, ad this here". Just a suggestion.

POST POST POST POST POST POST POST POST no but really please post :D
it can shoot strait through a full can of cola .. it was crazy the 1st time i tried it if u want me to post and instructable , just reply t this and i may see because iv never seen another gun that can shoot strait through a full can at 7ft ... i want to see if gorkens sniper rifle cud shoot througha full can all the way with his spec black rod or sumfin but id say that it wud but in his movie he fires it at close range so it might not be as powerful as you think ... i wouldnt know iv never had the pieces to make it but i want to and as usual ... longest comment haha

Arms, limbs or bow. Either is correct.

it just won't be a sturdy
tmmdude7 years ago
this gun is sweet! loading does take take a while but if you add extra band its worth it. you can also make the stock from gorkems sniper rifle and put it on the back.

dude i built this and its good but i hate the loading it takes forever

Could u finish your gun plz?
huh?
Means loading is quicker. You just pull it back and let the rod rest against that.
o i c
Hey, I built this and now I need help...taking apart. Any tips on taking the arms apart, they are pretty sturdy...stupdi white rods and geometric shapes.
