well first id like to say, gorkem gave me permission to do this.

ok this is the most powerfull crossbow ive made, infact its the most powerfull gun ive made so erm i suggest building it

i have added a few mods into it because it makes it perform better

*anyone who notices punctuation and spelling mistakes could you kindly point them out =D*

Step 1: First Step on Your Way to the Crossbow

picture 1: put 5 red connecters on a black/strenthened rod

picture 2,3 and 4: add a yellow connecter just like the red and put 2 red rods on either side, then add 9 yellow connecters through the hole like a skewer arranging them like the picture shows after you have done that add green rods to the yellows and then clip a white connecter on to keep them in place, add 4 more yellows and another green rod to the first one and then add a dark grey connecter then another white connecter


Step 2: Meh, This Is Easy

pic 1: make this thingy mabob

pic 2: thats where u attach

Step 3: In This Step U Make the Barrel and Attach to the Frame

pic 1: make this thingy at the end of a strenghthened grey lengh rod

pic 2: make this at the other end

pic 3: connect it like this

pic 4: make sure u add the trigger

Step 4: Making the Crossbow Arms

pic 1: make the in-between layer and then make a mirror of it for the opposite arm

pic 2: make sure u do this on both sides, then u have the basic arm and remeber to do it mirrored to make the other arm

pic 3 and 4: add these to the ends

pic 5: add this to hold the rubber bands. do this on the other arm too

Step 5: Connecting & Support

this is how u connect the arms to the body

pic 1: first arm connected

pic 2: both connected

the extra support

pic 3 and 4: add the red rods and slot it through where show

Step 6: Adding the Extra Decoration and the Top Connection/support

pic 4: connected

top connection/support:

pic 5: make 2 of these

pic 6: both added

pic 7: add in the grey rods, do this on both sides

Step 7: Elastic Bands, Loading and Firin

where to add the elastic bands...

pic 1: put through the supports

pic 2: hook over the orange on both sides

pic 3: trigger

how to load...

pic 4: put the bullet in the barrel then press the trigger and the bullet will fall through

pic 5: pull back the bullet until it gets locked in with the trigger making sure the elastics are balanced on the end of the rod

how to fire!

pull trigger, simple

congrats u have made gorkems crossbow with my mods

    It is a good crossbow, but it might help if you had clearer pictures and put all the parts in, instead of "Oh yeah, ad this here". Just a suggestion.

    it can shoot strait through a full can of cola .. it was crazy the 1st time i tried it if u want me to post and instructable , just reply t this and i may see because iv never seen another gun that can shoot strait through a full can at 7ft ... i want to see if gorkens sniper rifle cud shoot througha full can all the way with his spec black rod or sumfin but id say that it wud but in his movie he fires it at close range so it might not be as powerful as you think ... i wouldnt know iv never had the pieces to make it but i want to and as usual ... longest comment haha
