Introduction: Knex Crossbow: the C.C.S Rifle

Picture of Knex Crossbow: the C.C.S Rifle

Hey Guys!
So, recently I've had a few more ideas about some new Knex guns but instead I decided to build someone else's gun and was looking around for an accurate slingshot rifle with a good range, and eventually stumbled upon DJ Radio's Longbow SR-L V2 and made it. But I found various problems with it and decided to correct them...So here it is! The C.C.S!

The obvious things that I've changed is the stock and the bipod. But here is all the things that I've changed:
-Lengthened stock
-Added angled cheek rest (very comfy)
-Great accurate new iron sights
-Added adjustable angled scope
-NEW HALF BARREL
-NEW TENSIONED TRIGGER (without using an elastic band!!!)
-Bow raiser
-Ammo Holder (Stops ammo falling out of the barrel)
-Stronger Bipod 
-Better Connections of various parts

So let's here them! Pros and Cons
PROS
-All the above
-Great accuracy (Iron Sights: 20ft, Scope: 40ft+)
-Great range (80ft+)
-Very comfy
-True trigger
-Reliable
-Compact

CONS
-Blue rods sometimes stick out (depending on how you hold it)
-The connection between the bipod and the body could be stronger...

That's it! Rate comment and follow me for more!!!

Thanks

Step 1: Body and Barrel

So then, this is just the middle bit of the gun that you put the ammo on...it also include a horizontal grip and the bipod connection. I modded it off DJ Radio's Longbow so it uses my half barrel tech and still fits the receiver and the bow...  

Step 2: Lower Receiver

This is the handle and ratchet mechanism. This is the same as DJ Radio's. 

Step 3: Stock

This is what you put your shoulder in to make the gun sturdier and easier to aim. It also includes the cheek rest. It's basically the same but lengthened and a new cheek rest!

Step 4: Top Rail

This is top rail that goes above the barrel. It also includes the new sights and the ammo holder...

Step 5: Bow

No step by step instructions because it's very simple to make!!!!!!!

Step 6: Putting It Together!

WOOOO! Now the fun part! All that hard work has paid off! Follow the steps closely!

Step 7: Bipod (optional)

This is just a Bipod. It's fold able, and a lot stronger than the original but the connection between the body and the bipod is'nt great but not too much of a problem though...

Step 8: Scope (optional)

This is my own scope which I use to get better accuracy  on a longer range (40ft+)

Step 9: Loading and Firing

YAYZ!! The last step! And it's the fun part!!!!!

This gun was actually very satisfying for me as I managed to get some very accurate shots with the ammo from about 30ft-40ft but I may have another slingshot coming soon so keep an eye out!

Puddock (author)cazadactle2011-12-05

Yeah, I responded before making this comment. Besides that I could total picture me using this in a Knex fight.

Thanks! =D

Awesome! I'm building ASAP!

cazadactle (author)Knexman152011-11-28

great! totally worth it!

Knexman15 (author)cazadactle2011-11-29

FINALLY I finished it minus the Bipod and Sight (Might build those later) and it's awesome! I can't test the range because it's freezing outside but I pretty sure it will get at least 50 feet. 4.5 Stars!

cazadactle (author)Knexman152011-11-29

The range is preetty good but it does depend on what bands you use...I live in the UK so I get the thick red ones that are used by the post office and they get good range!
Btw the bipod and scope are totally worth building, the bipod is very strong and foldable but the only problem with the scope is that it is a little high but it makes it more accurate all the same.

Check out my sidebar for new on my next gun and don't forget to follow me!

I built the Bipod, I think it's strong and the connection is not all that bad, and I am now following you and checking out your new 'ible

Glorified ratchet design...

DJ Radio (author)RMConstruction2011-11-28

I'm not gonna lie, the entire thing started out as a ratchet RBG, which was actually my VERY FIRST knex gun back in 08, and I used the handle from that as the base for the original Longbow.

Very good, 4.5*

thanks!
