Introduction: How to Make a Knex Bow and Arrow

I was bored and wanted to make something so here it is. And bare with me this is my first instructable.Please feel free to use constructive criticism.

Step 1: Items You Will Need

You will need 2 green or black mini rods, 2 right angle connectors, 1 orange connector, 1 rubber band, 1 blue rod.

Step 2: Main Part

First connect the mini rods to the orange connector.

Step 3: Bowstring

Now cut the rubber band and tie each end to a red connector.

Step 4: Putting All Together and Firing

Connect the the main part to the right angle connectors. Put either a blue, orange, or a red rod into the orange connector hole pull back and release. Also feel free to copy and add to this design, but give me credit.

    Strictly speaking with bows, the "string" is non-elastic. and the energy is stored in the bow. However, your pictures are very sharp and show the build well. L
