Introduction: K'nex Black Ops Crossbow

Here is another non-working replica of one of the less conventional weapon on CoD: Black Ops.

A Crossbow!

I feel the shape is about right and the bands are definitely in the right place except due to a lack of larger rubber bands, I have only banded one side and even then; they aren't 32's or 64's.
Also, due to a lack of ingenuity, I can't figure out a way to make it fire while keeping the shape intact, therefore: It has no trigger, no fire-able ammo and no use. Looks nice though and comes with a scope without the lens part.

I've made a crossbow that can fire real arrows. It broke my window, no joke. See pic. I was aiming at something much lower, and the fletchings were a lil' iffy, thus shooting it at my window. Cracked and pierced 1 of 2 panes in the double glazing.

That 'weak' point on the arms will snap the moment you put any sort of tension through it. Other than that it should be fine to make it fire. Try making the compound mechanism, that should take some of the strain out of the arms.

author
TwistedParadox (author)knexguy2010-12-12

Why hasn't it snapped yet?

author
knexguy (author)TwistedParadox2010-12-12

There is only really a compression force on the bow when the string isn't pulled back, so it wouldn't snap as it is. If you reinforced those, I would think it should fire fine. I didn't really understand your comment, but I think this covered it.

author
TwistedParadox (author)knexguy2010-12-12

It will not break if the string is pulled back as is. It just doesn't fire because it doesn' have a way to hold the string back

author
knexguy (author)TwistedParadox2010-12-14

Yes, but a stronger elastic would work much better, and if you used one of those, the bow arms would need reinforcing.

"the pictures you copied from"
"halo"

Similar huh?
