Instructables
Voila! My v5 is posted. It uses less pieces than ever before, and is, as the name suggests, handheld! Its got a handle on top, and one on the back. It shoots a slightly different ammo about 75 feet.

I managed to save a load of pieces by making the rails out of rods, saving yellow connectors and green rods. It does result in more blue rods than I would have liked... But who cares!

Thats pretty well it. I hope you like it!

I have made a few other versions of this gun (all of them bigger!). Check them out!

My #64 rubber bands are longer, could I use one less then?
If I don't the rubber bands are not tight, while they need to be.

Totally! They should be tight in resting position but not so tight you can't pull them all the way back.

I used a GIANT rubber band before with slight modifications to the frame, am now trying to remember how I built it simply so I can have a use for this weird rubber band;

No bananas, so chips ahoy cookie for scale.

Hi guys

Every time I fire, the bullet spins alot. Also, on rare occasions, the bullet gets stuck on the rubber bands that are on the bow. Any fixes?
