I have now posted my new knex bow.look for it!

I might make instructions for my knex bow that shoots fairly well, but that depends on the rubber band. mine uses less pieces i think and isn't really complicated at all.

but your design looks cool and it seems that it shoots pretty decent.
nice job.

looks pretty realistic. Also, the good thing is, those of us who don't have a lot of k-nex can build this. =] cool

ILIKEPIE333 (author)GreekGuy2009-05-29

you dont need a lot of knex to build most knex bows, they're usually kinda simple
