Introduction: Knex Bow and Arrow

this is a knex bow and arrow. (duh) this bow is larger than the small bows but less complex and part wasting than the bigger bows. and don't forget to rate it.

Step 1: The Middle Part.

the middle part is the part that the arrow fires through.

Step 2: The End Pionts

the parts on the ends of the bow is what we will make next. it wont let me use the yellow boxes now! :( so just follow the pictures.

Step 3: The Bars in Between

the bars in between. (duh)grr! still no boxes!

Step 4: Put It All Together.

puting it all together.

Step 5: Rubber Bands and Arrow

put on the ruber bands. you will probably need to connect some of the rubber bands together. oh and i connected to many. so i didn't use the ends. so pay no attention to the rubber bands hanging off. then just make the arrow.

Step 6: Firieing

fireing put in like that and pull all the way back.

I really need a true trigger gun. All the ones I've built were block trigger ones, so it'd be great if you could.

mepain's rifle

i would suggest this one. make the expert version for a good true trigger rifle. it takes alot of parts but it is so worth it once you build it.

RokuXIII (author)2008-03-22

Ltcheesecracker (author)RokuXIII2008-03-23

Looks good and simple, but abysmal picture quality.

Ltcheesecracker (author)knexguy2008-02-21

yeah my flash was acting funny. it was going all white out every picture so i didn't use the flash.

knexguy (author)Ltcheesecracker2008-02-22

Oh well, good concept.

PineapplebobTheGreat (author)2008-02-20

You should really add in better pictures. They're really blurry. Still, you did a good job. ;-)
