lol i'll make it right now, because it actually very simple, but i can't replicate the mod anymore though. With the mod it would have around the same strength as KILLERK's block trigger pistol, but would be able to shoot rods. So i'll ask my dad to lend his camera to me.

I'm very sorry, i hate this stupid camera, i first made all the pictures i needed for my instructables, even made every picture twice to be sure. But the flash of the camera screwed up ALL of the pictures..... My hands are also very sore after making this bow, because i needed to make it from scratch again and saw loads off ways to strengthen the bow, i'll make it when i get to my moms house and use the camera there, thats the same one i used for the crossbow instructable. But this is how the pictures looked like :

i usually test out guns by firing them at a cardboard box from a knex set, which is sitting in my room. My lastest upgrade for my crossbow shot straight through both side of the box and made a dent in my wall, which ofcourse broke the 2 blue 3d connectors XD. This is not the ballista thing from the picture up there, but has at least the same amount of power, and has 2 rubberband chains. Will post this upgrade as soon as i'm done with my 2 other instructables

No i meant the standard one, not the ballista like thing. Can't see myself running around with that huge thing lol, is a little bit too heavy.
