This is my first instructable so please constructive criticism only.
Ps I'm not reliable for what you do with this crossbow!!!
Step 1: Create the Firing Pin.
-2 blue rods
-1 red rod
-1 orange ladder
-1 yellow half moon
-and a Y shape black connector
The firing pin works because a grey or black rod (the ammo) clips loosly into the black Y connector, when it is stopped abruptly the rod keeps going. I also tried other pieces instead of the black Y though they didn't work as well.
Step 2: Create the Bow Sides.
pic 1- make 2 of these and attach two of the lower parts,not the blue rods and spacers and attach it on top. (see pic 6)
pic 2- Make this part, it has 3 blue spacers on either side and a grey 2 clip piecs after that too.
pic 3-Attach the wheel part on here, at the end of the limb.
pic 4-Same as pic 3
Pic 5- The finished limb. You will need two of these.
Step 3: Make These Pieces.
pic 1- Make this piece which will attach to the back of the barrel.
pic 2-Make this piece for the front attachments to the limbs and barrel.
pic 3- Make this piece though you will need to have it as two pieces, or two halfs.
pic 4- Same as pic 1
pic 5- Same as pic 3
pic 6- make this p
Step 4: Creating the Barrel.
pic 1-Create the barrel using 2 halfmoon connecter or fullmoon connecters and a white rod and a ladder, or for the last part a halfmoon connector. then attact together. Also add the rods that i have shhown.
pic 2- Another picture of the barrel this time side on.
pic 3- The trigger is at the back of the barrel like so.
pic 4- Another picture of the trigger.
pic 5- Make sure that the last connection has a half moon rather than a ladder.
Step 5: Putting Parts Together.
Step 6: Attaching the Limbs
Step 7: Adding the Elastics and Firing the Crossbow
Now you must add elastics that pull the trigger away from you, th power of this must be greater than the power of the elastic that you stretched between the limbs or the trigger will not work.
To fire you must slide a grey rod up the barrel from the front then you must push it in to the Y connecter, a small click means it is attached. now pull back the elastic across the two green connecters and pull back the firing pin to the blue rod across the barrel. You crossbow is primed and ready to shoot when you pull the trigger.
Step 8: Extras
-I have found that a quick elastic rather than the mos powerful you can find is the best though a mixture is also highly suitable.
-Also i have found that instead of a firing pin you can have a rod attached to a ladder and put over the drawn elastic. This maxamises the range of the cross bow with mine averaging around 60 ft though it's consitensy and accuracy is thouroughly depleted by taking this approach.
Step 9: The Stock
pic 1- Start off by removing this part from the crossbow.
pic 2- Now build this part, the white rod has a tan connector where the note is to hold it straight.
pic 3- Build this part as well, pretty self explanatory.
pic 4- Take the part you built in pic 3 and attach it to the part in pic 1 on to the yellow halfmoon pieces as shown.
pic 5- Now attach the part in pic 2 to the white connector and push the red rods hard dow so they rest on the connector as well.
pic 6- Now build and collect these parts.
pic 7- Attach the piece on to the part already made where shown. (sorry for the blurriness.)
pic 8- Now slide a red rod up the hole in the yellow connectors on the other part.
pic 9- Attach the red rod on to the part attached in pic 7.
pic 10- Take the tan clip and clip it on the red rod and slide it in to the yellow connector.
pic 11- The finished stock ready to be attached to the cross bow again.
