Intro: BLOCKHEAD: Precision Crossbow
(V6 in the series)
It features a massive punch, while still able to use a true-trigger perfectly.
One can still detach the trigger to be able to fire 4 arrows in a row like the Reaper.
Although I was in a hurry (work after school \o/ ), the pictures should be fine.
Just in case I have a .rar archive included with all the full-sized pictures (2576x1932) in it, if you need to take a better look.
Perfectly working true-trigger
Very sturdy where it needs to be
Easy to mod
Not the fastest loading with trigger (goes faster once you get the hang of it)
The front handle needs improving
Its very heavy (dunno if this is bad =p)
Two video's, showing trigger and damage
Here is the .rar file

Step 1: Building the Handle
Image 1: Build these two sides of the handle.
Image 2: Build the center of the handle.
Image 3: Different perspective; center of handle.
Image 4: Connect the side with the center.
Image 5: Different perspective; center + side.
Image 6: Add the other side to it as well.
Yup that's the handle, wasn't too hard eh?
Step 2: Building the Trigger
Image 1: Build this part
Image 2: Build the other side
Image 3: Other viewpoint of Image 2
Image 4: Other viewpoint of Image 2
Image 5: Attach both sides to each other
Image 6: Build these parts
Image 7: Add them to the construction
Image 8: Build these two parts
Image 9: Build this thingy
Image 10: Add the thingy and connect the two sides
Image 11: Build this
Image 12: Add it to the part of image 10
Image 13: Build these
Image 14: Add the new parts
Image 15: Add the two sides from image 13 together
Image 16: Add spacers and 3 gray connectors
Image 17: Add it to the rest of the trigger
Image 18: Build this part
Image 19: Same part different view image 18
Image 20: Add it as shown
Image 21: Connect shown pieces together
Image 22: Build decal wings
Image 23: Add like so
Image 24: Same as image 23
Phew that's a long step, but now you're done with the trigger =D
Step 3: Building the Bow (block)
Uh not really a bow? xd
Hard bit (Not enough time to take apart >.<)
Image 1: Try to build this by first building the 2 squares of blue connectors, then adding rods
Image 2: Same
Image 3: Same
Hardest part done.
Image 4: Build this
Image 5: Attach them
Image 6: Build this
Image 7: Add like shown
Image 8: Build these 4 layers
Image 9: Build 2 of these
Do the following on both sides!!
Image 10: Add a layer
Image 11: Add the top layer
Should be done with both sides now
Image 12: Should look like this
Image 13: Attach as shown, to get a block, not bow
Image 14: Build these 2 parts
Image 15: Add them like shown
Step 4: Adding Rubberbands
Just add the rubber bands
Image 1: Make 4 of these strings, these are 4 rubber bands long, the length may vary with the length of the handle
Image 2: Put them like so
Image 3: Then just connect them with the block (bow)
Image 4: 1st rubber band on the trigger
Image 5: Same as image 4
Image 6: 2nd rubber band, read note
Step 5: Assembling the Crossblock (lol?)
Image 1: This is pretty hard, time was nearly running out, CHANGE your handle to match the one in this picture!
Image 2: The bow is very easy; it just snaps on
Image 3: And before I forget, make this and put it somewhere on the handle
Image 4: Same
Image 5: Same
Image 6: Attach anywhere you want like so
Step 6: Ammo
Loading and shooting is covered in the video's on the first page.
This can shoot the same ammo as the Reaper, hell I even used the same picture =x
Kinda sucks that I don't have the crossbow here while making the Instructable...
If you look at the handle close to the trigger, you'll notice you can pack it with arrows =p
Step 7: Finished!
Yay its done! Now you can go out shooting stuff =D
It can be made more powerful making the handle longer, but if made too long, it doesn't fire long arrows like piercing ones..
And if you have an extremely long handle, ductape might help with red connectors that snap off under the strain.
.. Uh yeah don't ever shoot people with this thing, as it can be very dangerous/lethal =d
And I hope the instructions are clear enough, as I couldn't make additional pictures >.<
Image 1: Yup quite some improvement over this =D
