Introduction: Paperclip Crossbow

Picture of Paperclip Crossbow

This is another fun and easy office supply weapon. The picture should be self-explanatory. Subscribe to my channel for more office supply weapons and other cool projects!

Warning: The spring can fire the ink cartridge quite powerfully. Do not shoot this at people.

I don't fully understand your comment. Will you please explain?

Thanks though

There's actually nothing important blocked by my finger. To fire, you pull back on the ink cartridge and let go.

Why don't you explain how to build it? Your finger is in the way.
