Rapid Arrow Firing System Answered

It was only a very simple idea, just make a massive arrow holder and slide a rod through it.

It shoots 13 arrows, with about the power of the v2.
Problem was though...the massive amount of rubberbands made it bend all over the place; 13 times strings of 4... =52 which just doesn't work.

It did shoot, but as you can see from the pictures...it was not very sturdy lol
That rod with the wheels on it equals a black rod O.o

And before you ask....everything except the trigger is taken apart already, as I consider it failed.
And ofcourse I don't sit still, building something new already =d

Might make one again, but on a smaller scale.

It only ever fired once, right after this picture was taken, it was impossible to load it again.
It shot arrows all over the place, about 9 hit the target, the rest smashed the front to pieces and got tangled up in the rubberbands.
About a year ago =)

Good times xD

It was bound to happen if you look at the way this trigger works and the ones on the rest of the xbows. I seriously wished it worked properly..imagine 13 arrows falling down from about 130 feet xd

too many* I bet a modified version could use like only three wheels on each side and then hopefully it wouldn't bend as much but it would probably put too much stress on the one area. Then I'm sure the ammo would also start flying up and down and not just straight.

Yeah but that would be from a long distance from some kind of cover...as it takes ages to load xD

Or maybe if you keep the multi arrows but use only like 2-3 rubber bands. It wouldn't be quite as fast but you could still fire in bursts of 2-3 and cock relatively fast with ammo already prepared.

The rods with the wheels on. I was thinking of a compound bow, where the string hooks around cams on either end.

if you lessened the amount of arrows it fired to about 6 it would be much stronger! good luck!

I might do that, bit less on the rubberbands though...or just try to strengthen the rod..

Dude, is that a white/black rod with all the wheels that's bent by those rubber bands? That's insane.

Yes that is a long white rod being bent. And yes we were hiding behind pillows while firing/loading =p
