Introduction: Knex Bow

my first instructable
this is a decent bow i like it
it shoots well at close range, u may want to add rubber bands for more power

Step 1: Connector Things

build 6 of these

Step 2: The Ends

build 2 of these

attach all of them with red(or grey) connectors

Step 3: The Handle(optional But I Suggest Using It)

this is personal it can modded for ones own comfort
1. make 2 of these
2. other view
3.attach to center of bow lke this(one up and one down)

Step 4: Stringing It

wat i do is i put a green connecter in the middle at each end (pic 1)
then tie a string between them wen i get it at just the right length and currvature(pic 2)

Step 5: The Arrow

very simple to make i cover mine in tape for structural suppoort

    how do you fire it?

    You pull the string, how else would you fire it?

    hi its the knexman i was wondering if there was a way to make the bow not so flimsey because whenever i pulled the string back the bow snapped your forever humble servent the knexman

    Wow, this is so cool!! I have 2 questions
    1. You said to add rubber bands for extra power. Where do the rubber bands go?
    2. Where do I insert the arrow?

    1. Replace the string with rubber bands looped together or add a rubber band to each end
    2. It works like a real bow there is no specific spot.

    pac man!


    this is a true bow and arrow.

    cool, but i would not use string, since it will put stress on the pieces.
