Picture of Knex mini cross bow
Knex mini cross bow is the result of a few hours of work. It's pretty small, made from knex minis, and I think that it has a true trigger but I am not sure what's considered a true trigger.

Here is how to build the cross section. You will need a thin rubberband long enough to fit loosely around the end (as seen in pic).

Step 3: Assembly

It could use a better handle but not bad for mini knex.
