This is an awesome build, I am trying to make one now!

Please make more like this, your photos are great too and easy to understand.

yeah I got sick of pictures that were awful.

How did you stop the rubber band from bouncing up and over the projectile?

That was my problem and I couldn't solve it.

simplymodded (author)JM19992014-12-22

on the front of the crossbow there should be 3 bars. the middle one has a hole for the projectile. the rubber band goes on the bottom bar.

JM1999 (author)simplymodded2014-12-22

Ah right, I modded it so the rubber band sat in the wrong location :(

I don't have the right pieces to make it the way you did but I used the trigger mechanism ad turned it into a rubber band shooter instead :)
