Introduction: Knex Crossbow

Hey guys, I made this crossbow, and i think it came out great except for one weak attachment from the stock to the body. So tell me what you think!

Thanks you all, i love waking up to a bunch of new wonderful comments, and thats part of what keeps me going :D

how far is the range??

LiftAndLove (author)2011-12-29

Nice. I like it, but i have a few minor ideas.

1) I think the bow arms should be a bit longer, but this would need reinforcing, as it may cause too much tension

2)The ammo should be longer, so it looks more realistic

Other than that it's AWESOME!

Finally some good music. What about doctor p?
nice gun, you should make a mag on it

Senior Waffleman (author)mahmel2011-10-09

Umm, sorry, no mag, it was already suggested, tried, and i failed, so im going to keep it single shot, and im still modding it some. but anyways, thanks!! =)

oh, I see!

Senior Waffleman (author)mahmel2011-10-10

I plan on demolishing it :P i dont want to post, it uses alot of pieces, and has weird connections, and is flimsy in some areas :I

Thanks :D

You should modify the ammo so it does not require any ball connectors. They are a rare piece and most people don't have very many of them. Other than that, looks great!

P.S. On a side note, a removable magazine would be a fantastic addition.

The mag just doesnt really work for me, cuz loading is awkward as it is

Senior Waffleman (author)Torpe2011-10-02

I may possibly add a mag, great idea, ill mod it some, and, it can use grey cons instead of ball joints, i have 20 ball joints, so i used them instead, but thanks :D

What, no footage of shooting that thing?

I did, but the stupid thing i used for making this video wouldnt take the footage, pisses me off, so i might upload another vid of it shooting later.

POST THIS! Orelse...

Or else what? :P lol, maaaybbeeeeee

TheFoofinator (author)2011-10-01



Definitely worth posting. One little thing a bit off isn't going to make the gun any less awesome than it already is. Besides, we lack guns like this.

Thanks =)

You should definatly post this =D

Senior Waffleman (author)~KGB~2011-10-01

Im not sure, cuz the connection of the stock to the handle and body is weak, and when you pick it up with one hand, it bends a little. but thanks :D
