Thats exactly the same thing I was on las time

JB123 (author)2010-05-15

I put light blue spacers between the 2 orange pieces on both sides, it makes it stronger.

i would say that the extra orange attatches to the end of the grey connecter giving it something to connect to the band with.

is there supposed to be a extra orange

Vandom (author)2008-02-08

Great job! This is the first thing I've ever built and it came out great. P.S. This can also be used to shoot pencils and such.

Ephipwn324 (author)2008-01-22

thats pretty sweet, man, I made one myself but flipped the top yellow piece around to hold different "arrows." It actually fires quite well mind the sparatic way some of the "arrows" fly

fork me3 (author)Ephipwn3242008-01-28

wow well done it looks sweet!! but can u please check mine out and let me know
how it goes?? i would really appreciate it link

Knexman2020 (author)2008-01-22

dont kno how but i mad a pinball game outa this.

Namlem (author)2008-01-20

This is sweet. It took like 5 minutes to make and it's really powerful! It takes a few seconds to load but that's a reasonable trade off.

maxmaz2 (author)2008-01-08

sweet pretty cool bow its kinda small but powerful!

GreekGuy (author)2007-12-01

lol nice bow, but you only need 1 picture, but then it wouldnt be called an instructable, but a picture. Whatever lol +1

s0lekill3r (author)2007-11-25

this is pretty sweet, i made one similar to this and turned it into a crossbow with a true trigger that hurts like heck. i might post it

plasmaspy (author)2007-11-16

awesum bow shoots a long way! i made this bow and have now changed it into a compound bow = extra awesumness!

knex gun forger (author)2007-11-11

holy crap guys i hit 257 feet!seriously! i used 4 really long elastics and triple looped each one its really hard to pull back the elastic tho.

ojochris (author)2007-10-13

Dude, I hit 106 feet!!!!!!!!!!! :O

ThaJuzz (author)2007-09-12

You know, u can make the arrows better, with a small orange connector at the en and a red connector in front, it looks like a real arrow then! :) I made it too, and its a wonderfull bow :) good job!

fuzz775 (author)2007-08-24

i liked this it was so cool and it is pretty powerful but its inaccurate. i trid to upgrade to become a crossbow like mrbob1000 suggested but i couldnt so i made it accurate instead. i am going to post an instructable with some good arrows and the upgrade. look for it!!

KamikazeSniper360 (author)2007-08-24

Great gun. There was no K'nex bows with an arrow like this before.

Pax415 (author)KamikazeSniper3602007-08-24


Mike Cortes (author)2007-08-17

looks powerful, did you get the idea from mine?

mrbob1000 (author)2007-08-17

this looks great and it looks like it could easily morph into a crossbow with only a handle and a few more knex

hg341 (author)2007-08-17

flames10391 (author)2007-08-16
