Introduction: NEW & Improved K'nex Mini Bow

This k'nex mini bow is STRONGER, FASTER, and is more ACCURATE than my original k'nex mini bow. It can shoot though cardboard and is really easy to use. Using only 1 rubberband can be almost just as powerful as using 2. So you can see, it is pretty powerful.

Step 1: Collect the Peices

1-2 rubber bands
2 gray spacers
2 small green rods
6 gray connectors
6 black rod/connectors
2 yellow connectors
4 white connectors
4 orange connectors
8 green connectors
2 red rods
8 yellow rods
7 blue rods
6 white rods
1 gray rod (used as the arrow)

Step 2: BUILD

Use 8 green connectors, 4 white rods, and 2 blue rods.

Step 3: BUILD

Use 4 white connectors, 4 blue rods, 2 green rods, 2 black rod/connectors, and 2 gray connectors.

Step 4: BUILD

Use 2 orange connectors, 4 black rod/connectors, and 2 gray connectors.

Step 5: BUILD

Use 2 yellow rods and 2 gray connectors.

Step 6: BUILD

Use 2 yellow rods and 2 yellow connectors.

Step 7: BUILD

Use 2 orange connectors and 1 blue rod.

Step 8: OPTIONAL

Push 2 gray spacers though your rubberband(s). This step is optional.

Step 9: CONNECT THE RUBBERBANDS

Use 2 yellow rods and 2 red rods to put your rubberbands onto your bow.

Step 10: BUILD and FINISH

Use 2 yellow rods to finish.

so how far does it shoot?

author

it shoots pretty far. the arrow travels straight for about 5 meters and then lands about 1-3 meters away. it's total distance is 6-8 meters. if you're lucky, it can shoot farther

according to dj radio this is terrible. he said on my bow and arrow that pure power doesn't cut it.

mrbox (author)2008-01-08

ive made an even newer and more improved bow that looks like yours! its got more ... how do you say its got more of a bow like frame and can hold lot of tension. only replacing the rubberband is really HARD. but it is easier than replacing the string on a real bow =)
