How to make a Crossbow - PVC Crossbow

(Watch Video)

Here is a crossbow made with PVC. It is easy to make with common tools and a little time. You do not need any heat or reshaping of the PVC to make this. It is powerful enough to put a hole in a wall from across the room, so do not play with this inside your house.

Do not point his crossbow at anyone or any living creatures because it can hurt them badly.

Just remember that PVC is only a form of hard plastic. It can and will break if too much weight or force is applied and injuries can occur. Please use caution when using anything made from PVC.

    Do yo have to buy different bits to do different size cuts?

    And will it do the curved cuts for the string?

    The cutter works on all pipes up to a certain size (each cutter is different).

    For the ends, I used a saw. The cutter is only good to cut all of the way through the pipe.

    Most brands should work as long as they look heavy duty

    Neat. This would be a nice base/blueprint for building a homemade nerf gun for NIC wars. This is very cool!

    I have made a miniature crossbow but it's extremely powerless (it can shoot a 6.5 cm paperboard bolt for something like 3 m XD)

    Great ! I really like the fact that it's a REAL crossbow . Usually , people make a slingshot and name it crossbow mostly because they don't know the difference :(

    Thank you. I have been working on this (on and off) for months to make it a real version.
