I have got something, and it is a bow, but it is a micro bow with a special handle. Should I give pictures?


Took it apart already...

Thanks so much, this was great! My cat loves to case off after the arrow after I shoot it. xD

Migacz (author)Darth_Cupcake2008-11-23

mine keeps bending! Are you supposed to add a bendy or a straight piece to the middle? ps how do you shoot it?

Daniel662000 (author)Migacz2008-11-23

You put a straight peice, try using long black rods, or if you don't have any and it is still bending trying a weaker rubber band. you shoot it by putting the orange connector in between the rubber band so it is in the space pull back and let go.

how do u attach the rubber bands

Daniel662000 (author)knexg0d1o12008-02-18

You put the blue rod through the whole in the rubberband then attach it to the yellow connectors.

10-20 feet, ha sorry but that sucks, my mini bow which ill post later on fires 35-45 feet and its smaller and uses much les pieces, 2 wheels, 2 yellow rods, 4 blue rods, 4 white rods, 4 green conectors 2 red conectors, 1 snow flake. and of course a pretty good elastic band.

Wow Knex weapons are going back in time or something. Nunchucks, swords, bows? Cool though.

mmzdaniel (author)crestind2007-08-05

its original but its not really efficient. a guy with a good gun would own some one with a sword... faust: do you have any new stuff in mind?

crestind (author)mmzdaniel2007-08-05

Just the machine gun. If you pull it back and push it forward by hand, it works incredibly well!! Just one problem - gears can't support even weak rubber bands :( if somehow they could be strengthened, this thing would work!! A true machine gun!! Maybe I'll post a YouTube vid.

mmzdaniel (author)crestind2007-08-06

ill post my semi auto i made b4 the trip, but only when i get back... but since you posted the pinion system before i did, i should ask for permission to post it, right?

crestind (author)mmzdaniel2007-08-07

Yeah, that's fine. I'm looking forward to it! :)

mmzdaniel (author)crestind2007-08-10

i still had jamming in the mag and the mag is not bottom feed.... maybe i could fin a mag that never jams...
