Crossbow V2 Ultimate Version Answered

After weeks of waiting, I finally got my k'nex back after moving. One of the first things I did was solving a few problems with my crossbow trigger. It took me about 4 hours of thinking and building prototypes.

The following things have changed:

The friction has been reduced by a great amount.
It became much more compact.
Does not require ductape anymore.
Does not need the exotic hinge piece.
Is now very easy to fire.

I decided to show the new trigger using a well-built V2 crossbow; which now can finally use it, due to lower friction.

This trigger is ideal for people that want a trigger on the v2, it should be buildable from the pictures.
(The coloured trigger is the first version, the same as the gray one though)

Nah hoe ie er op die foto uitziet echt geen 130feet. Als ik eentje zou bouwen voor range dan zou ie echt wat groter worden.

Yup I'll be posting this, I even built a second one in 30 mins, just a bit more colorful =d

These use a rather small amount of pieces, so I'll build a third one; taking pictures along the way.
