Introduction: Knex Longbow SR-L V2
This was meant to be a sniper rifle, but I added arms, and everyone wanted me to call it a crossbow.
Anyway, it is a sniper bow now, and its the biggest knex project I have ever built in terms of part count.
PROS (a * means its an improvement over v1)- true trigger
- very powerful
- good range (50-70 feet)*
- very accurate
- has a sight*
- better stock*
- has a collapsible bipod
- faster load time than v1 (5 seconds for v2, compared to ten seconds for v1)*
- NEVER jams
- is much more sturdier*
CONS- out of all my knex projects, this uses the most parts. (but im sure this isnt a problem for every other knexer out there)
- misfires when shot at a straight angle (catches on the connectors). It can shoot right when pointed downwards, so it should be used for sniping off high balconies or ledges
Anyway, I would use this along with My AR-4 v2 in a knex war.
If you like it, lets build it!
note- due to a new breakthrough in my pics, there is no blur anymore.

This is the stock and handle. stock is modified off of Bartboy's stock.
picture 1- the overview
picture 2- the stock only
Picture 3- the ratchet and trigger.
Step 3: Main Barrel
This is a new 5- layer thick barrel
Picture 1- overview
Picture 2- some parts of the barrel removed
Picture 3- bipod holder
Picture 4- attach to handle
Picture 5- make this part.
Picture 6- connect it
Step 4: Bow
this is the bow. build it.
and note the rubberband placement and the attachment to barrel.
Step 5: Top Rail (optional)
this part is optional, but it makes the gun look better and adds a sight.
picture 1- the top rail.
Picture 2-3 the connection
Step 6: Bipod (optional)
you know the drill:
Picture 1- build the legs (note the rubber band)
Picture 2- attach to barrel
Step 7: Ammo
This is the modded ammo (picture 1)
It should be easy to load and fire the gun from here.
Enjoy, and dont forget to rate!
