Check my H.A.W.C Version 1.0 too!

Here it is:
The last edition of the H.A.W.C:
Version 10.0.

It's a very strong and very powerful crossbow.
It has a range of 100 to 120 ft with 3 or 4 rubberbands.
Very fun to use when your shooting at targets.

-very powerful
-can take a punch
-unlike the first version, it has a small stock
-sights that actually work
-comfortable handle
-true trigger

- isn't accurate when front of barrel is removed

For short:
This is the best version of the H.A.W.C so it's very recommandable.

I suggest making 4 strands of rubber bands using rainbow loom, use 13 bands in each (stick) of rubber and make 3 more (4) and add them on it and warning it will hurt very badly i shot my bedroom door 7 feet away with a grey bullet (same bullet just using grey rod) and the thing exploded, so please think smart.

imducky98 (author)2014-12-17

i suggest using a grey or a yellow rod put a red connector (connect it in the center connector) and add a yellow connector on the end oh and change the red connector's angle so its up-right instead on flat. And there you go you got a arrow and its painful.

Team BuildIt (author)2013-08-30

I add thing and now is to power full

Team BuildIt (author)2013-08-28

when i was biulding a part went flying hit my wall and was in the wall

rexdino5 (author)2012-09-12

Hmm... I wonder if you added more rubber bands and then widened the barrel to 3 connectors wide and then you could make a big shot. It seems powerful and capable enough to do that.

arjun1 (author)2012-04-06

Split my grey connector in half!
Great gun, very powerful

liam401 (author)2009-04-11

falco33 (author)liam4012009-06-15

shieldsam (author)falco332011-12-29

dnmonsen (author)2010-06-19

Skreetsha (author)dnmonsen2010-06-20

shieldsam (author)Skreetsha2011-12-20

Skreetsha (author)shieldsam2011-12-22

Technically yes, but 'lol' is such a generic word, it is no longer seen as a word.

H1T4TCH1 (author)Skreetsha2010-07-15

koenykoen (author)2011-11-24

you can say this gun is iligal, i penetrated both sides of a plastic milk can with a sharpened red rod.

Skreetsha (author)koenykoen2011-12-10

The Nomlack (author)2011-03-01

I love it! Works very well for me

Skreetsha (author)The Nomlack2011-03-02

Well that's great news! Have fun with it :)

inergy (author)2011-01-13

I modded it a little bit, took off the front handle, no stock, no white connectors on the barrel except the ones connecting the handle, no bullet protection, and I put a black rod through the red connectors on the cross for added strength, it can hold 12 #64 rubberbands and shoots 156 feet accurately

knexcthulu (author)2009-12-04

with the handle are the gray things the half circle connecters 
if not then can u say or show wat they r i would really appreciate it 
by the way excelent gun/crossbow 5/5

FishWash (author)knexcthulu2010-02-14

glugnar (author)FishWash2010-07-28

glugnar (author)2010-07-28

Shadowpom (author)glugnar2010-08-21

Skreetsha (author)ol9879862009-09-26

Lolz, thanks man. :P Not alot of people build it nowadays.. They are more interested in small repeaters and RBG's, i like big snipers and cannons better ;)

glugnar (author)Skreetsha2010-07-28

Loutraki (author)2008-11-30

Skreetsha (author)Loutraki2008-11-30

Yep but, It will look less cool and will be less strong.

tphan97 (author)Skreetsha2010-07-22

muffinslayer2 (author)2010-04-05

You still get kickback on this thing? I'm already most likely gonna make it, but if it does then HECK YEA i'm making it!

lilpepsikraker (author)2010-01-09


scaramouchew (author)2009-12-28

trust me i have build 7 knex crossbows from instrucables and still this is the best mine shoots 150 ft ty so much once again

cerj (author)2009-06-27

instead of using a red connector + blue rod + grey connector for the bullet i suggest using red connector + sharpened yellow rod. its evil!
