Picture of Knex crossbow
this is my first ever instructable so please excuse any hard to follow directions. this is my "piece conservative" crossbow. it has a range of about 30ft shot flat and 40-50ft angled. it also feqatures a new type of trigger that works really well.
p.s. please rate and sub!

also check out my combat/tactical knife at; http://www.instructables.com/id/knex-combattactical-knife/

Step 1: Bow

make/gather two of every thing although when assembling make in reverse
pic 6 make four 
pic 10 flip to under side

Make a video!!! I really want to see it working cause I think I don't have enough parts.

I will first apologize for being untimely in my response, and then I will tell you that I may rebuild the crossbow and put up a video. I will first need to do some pretty serious posting of other instructables of various sorts.

This is sick looking........I would build it but I don't have very many yellow peices
Great Bow but I couldn't make the firing slot cuz lack of pieces, I added it onto a design I had made earlier and improved it quite a bit, thanks

WHOA. Now, thats an impressive first instructable! true trigger and everything! :O *impressed*
the_boss_builder (author)  LvNo10002 years ago
thank you very much, I appreciate your positiveness. The trigger was my own idea and I hope to build more innovative things, I would like to see more of your stuff as well!
Alright robin hood. lol this is epic. totally great instructions.
Better arrow design: Connect a red connector to the end of a grey rod, looking like an arrow. Then, connect a green connector to the other end of the arrow. On the green connector's other side, connect a white rod. This makes the arrow able to stay on the "runway" the whole time, and still have the rubber band grab the arrow.
sorry crazy late reply, could you post a picture of what you are talking about for some reason i cant see it in my head ':/
In order: Red connector. In the middle slot, put a grey rod. Then 4-slot connector, on the end slot. Then put a white rod on the other end of the 4-slot. Sorry I don't have a camera.
Pic 3 where does the 3way connector connect to the rest of the gun?
what step?
nevermind. The trigger mech is confusing.
oh it dosnt, it is there to push the end of the arrow out from the notch of the snowflake connectors. in turn this fires the arrow.
you need to post a BOM.
a what??
bill of materials. How many of each part is needed.
i dont know, i would have to build it again to find out, and i probably wont get around to that real quickly, but yes eventually it will get put in

I was wondering if you had any other posts that are anything like this one, like a lego rifle?
the_boss_builder (author)  imogensen2 years ago
i dont build lego guns only knex, sorry.
Step 1 pic 3. what is the point of these pieces? It doesn't look like they attach to anything.
spacer/strengthener/looks cool
zakman28103 years ago
on step 1 number 6 how do you get the grey piece onto the other piece
the_boss_builder (author)  zakman28103 years ago
just line them up like it shows and push them together really hard until you hear a rather loud "click"
How did this get featured?
the_boss_builder (author)  PotatoCoffee3 years ago
please dont nitpick at old discussions that have been settled and just read the other comments.
No! I didn't mean that's as a negative comment! It was actualy because of the pictures, I'm sorry you interpreted my comment that way!
