Hybrid Knex Bow

I have had this bow for a while now, and I will not be posting instructions for it as I am using parts from it to make my emplacement gun bigger. It shouldn't be too hard to make from the pictures. Sorry about the shoddy pictures, when I post my emplacement gun I will use my digital camera.


Adjustable stock

My new and comfy handle, with anchor points for a monopod

Sturdy and robust design

Fires 45-60 feet

A hybrid system; the bow flexes, providing some power as well as the rubber bands.

    I'm working on a very complex hybrid sniper bow. It starts out as a crossbow. The bent area at the end can be twisted from horizontal into vertical so it makes the butt for the sniper part. The extended barrel can be pulled out from the end opposite the side of the bent area/ butt. The scope from the crossbow part can be pulled upwards and locked in place to make the magazine. The handle and trigger for the crossbow folds up vertically to make the grip for the sniper. The grip from the crossbow folds down to make the handle and trigger for the sniper. I'm not sure if you can picture it from what I said, but it looks cool.

    I am not actually sure whether you are speaking English or not. From what I can see you said : "Why put the bands in so near; does it just snap?" In response to that, I assume you are referring to picture 2, where the bands are not attached to the arms of the crossbow. This was purely accidental and they should be attached at the ends of the arms.
