I.E. Sling Crossbow version 1
I made this after wanting to go back to my ISR series, but I wanted to improve it and make the overall build much cleaner. I also wanted it to be more crossbow like, as I had seen the crossbow that is in BF3, and I thought it looked pretty awesome.
So I came up with the ISX, which I have made several improvements with over the ISR-S3. And, in my opinion, I think I have succeeded in my aim. The ISX has more power, more features, and just generally looks better.
I also wanted to make sure that it could shoot a variety of ammos, including those with red connectors on the front, which I think a lot of slingshots can't really do
This is a short weapon, coming in at 16.5 inches without the bipod, and 21.5 inches with the bipod. This is because this has used all my pieces, of which, as you can see, I don't have much. This means that some power is sacrificed, as the pull length of the bands is 9 inches long as a result. However, this can be easily fixed by simply making the front of the crossbow longer, and you can extend the stock aswell.
Anyway, onto the pros/cons:
Great power, especially for its size
Flippable back sight
Removable/changeable front sight
Easy to use sights
Foldable, locking bipod
Very comfortable - has a much improved handle
Easy to load and shoot
Can use pretty much any ammo (not rods though)
Could be more powerful if it was longer
Sometimes doesn't fire accurately
Putting two bands on can cause the two yellow connectors on the bow to snap off
Stock isn't very long
Anyway, don't forget to favourite, comment and subscribe!
