The much anticipated "Shanti" bow, or the D-TAB (dual-turret assault bow) is finally here. The D-TAB is a shot bow, meaning that is is a bow/crossbow that shoots more than one shot at a time. The unique thing about this shot bow however, is that it uses turrets, making for maximum range and power. It also utilizes the first compound bow system that I have seen in knex, giving the firing pin an extra "thrust" as it accelerates towards the turrets. The design of the bow was inspired by S0lekill3r's oodammo shotbow, as you can see that the barrel, firing pin, and ram guide are almost identical to his. I also used Knexfreek's trigger, which I happen to really like, but there are many different triggers you can use with this gun. As you saw with the forum pictures, the turrets were tilting, and I had no idea why. When I took the bow apart for the instructable and put it back together again, there was no more tilt. Weird but I'm happy with it. That made the gun much more accurate. This is by far the best weapon I have ever made out of knex and if you make it, you you will feel the same. Imagine dual wielding tr-8s with one hand...yeah.
Don't forget to comment and rate-as KSC says, "It only takes a couple seconds"
-Compound bow system
-Awesome range and power
-Perfect for wars (my main)
-Tricky to wind
-Safety kind of makes the handle uncomfortable, but you don't need it
-S0lekill3r for the barrel, ram/pin, ram guide
-Knexfreek for the trigger (I modded it a little to make it compatible with the safety)
Feel free to upload pictures of yours-I am trying to get all of the ones people have made and show them on the ible
THIS GUN HIT #1 TWICE AT 4.26, THEN LATER AT 4.21!
