I built this, and though it is a little wobbly, I underestimated it's power and it went clean through a cardboard box and dented my wall! Now I can only shoot it in the basement XD

kill-stinger (author)2011-07-07

just finished building it, it is a bit wobbly, but is is VERY powerful with only 1 rubber band. i made my own arrow for it, it penetrates wood with ease.

This is my home made arrow:

Is your caps lock stuck?

no i thought id do my instructables like killerk coz i think it looks good and it more clear

DJ Radio (author)Tom Buckey2009-04-07

nah, it just makes you look like a noob. you dont have to shout it out.

KnexMaster7000 (author)DJ Radio2009-08-31

lol

That's a very clever one. :)

yerjoking (author)DJ Radio2009-04-10

You would know. ;)

DJ Radio (author)yerjoking2009-04-10

lol, That was when i didnt know caps=shouting.

yerjoking (author)DJ Radio2009-04-10

Yeah, same here.

Oblivitus (author)SeMi_AuToMaTic2009-04-07

Mine got stuck once, so I kept hitting it until I had to get a repair man, then he gave up and started hitting it, then I fired him and he got mad, and stormed out, and I got a $300 bill in the mail, so I went to his house and demanded a refund, and then he ran my car over with a tank, so I declared war on Serbia and started World War II, and yeah, you know the rest, that's what really happened. LOL

KnexMaster7000 (author)Oblivitus2009-08-31

LOL F_CKING HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oblivitus (author)KnexMaster70002009-08-31

Thank you.

SeMi_AuToMaTic (author)Oblivitus2009-04-08

I was the repair man, dammit

Oblivitus (author)SeMi_AuToMaTic2009-04-08

Hey!, you owe me a car!

erikos kostarikos (author)2010-12-07

I think it looks really good, but maybe you should change the handle and the stock a bit.
For the rest of the gun: I love it.
5*s.

Lowney (author)2009-09-24

It's very good but for a v2 you should really add side panels, this is incredibly flimsy!

Tom Buckey (author)Lowney2009-09-24

Yes sadly that it the only thing that lets it down. If you wanted you could mod it?

Lowney (author)Tom Buckey2009-09-25

Nah, I don't have it.

Tom Buckey (author)Lowney2009-09-25

wahhh?

Lowney (author)Tom Buckey2009-09-25

I don't have this crossbow

Tom Buckey (author)Lowney2009-09-25

Oh. I thought you had made it because you said its flimsy.

Lowney (author)Tom Buckey2009-10-04

Would you like to see my rifle, which I will post? I added side panels and the piece list comes to around 600-650

Tom Buckey (author)Lowney2009-10-04

Yersh please.

Lowney (author)Tom Buckey2009-10-04

On your OB

Lowney (author)Tom Buckey2009-09-25

My single shot rifle has exactly the same barrel

paintswithbrush (author)2009-07-10

Whoa! 135 blue spacers

no 115 but its still alot and you can substitute them for greys ;P

knexsniper1 (author)2009-06-13

OOOO!!!!! nice crossbow. i like this one the best because it has a simple design, but uber power! just wondering, but why is there a bipod? i've never seen a crossbow with a bipod. nice job! 5 stars

Tom Buckey (author)knexsniper12009-06-14

i just put the bipod on for the pic because i never used it and it made it look better on the pic and thanks!

knexsniper1 (author)Tom Buckey2009-06-19

yeah, it does look cooler in the pics XD

slywolf28 (author)2009-05-02

2 things: 1) besides the stock, this gun looks pretty easy. 2)how far does it go on average?

Tom Buckey (author)slywolf282009-05-04

it shoots abot 75 ft with my elastic bands but yours shoud shoot about the same distance

J Moneyman (author)2009-04-16

stock looks even comfyer (is that a word) than the V1. I wonder why... maybe cause it's V2! :) i like it.

Master_Zane (author)2009-04-08

Looks pretty cool. The trigger kinda has a Viccie concept except that it has two white snow flakes. Either way, 5*

Tom Buckey (author)Master_Zane2009-04-08

thanks!

Master_Zane (author)Tom Buckey2009-04-08

YW

chopstx (author)2009-04-05

could you use somethhing other than ball joint connectors? this gun looks better than the v1.

Tom Buckey (author)chopstx2009-04-05

i will post a new pic showing you how soon

chopstx (author)Tom Buckey2009-04-05

srry i didn't check. i was too lazy. thanx

Tom Buckey (author)chopstx2009-04-06

chopstx (author)Tom Buckey2009-04-06

Tom Buckey (author)chopstx2009-04-05
