K'Nex crossbowits got power, and range. i don't have averages yet but the last version shot 20 feet and has some power. this version has good power and can pierce cardboard with a good shot from app. 5 feet away. not bad.
the reason i am posting this is to show a new idea i had for removable parts. the only removable part i have for it right now is the head rest, but i am hoping for people to make other removable parts for it.
this gun has a ratchet system on it. so it can take a lot of power from rubber bands.
the gun also has a ammo holder that goes into your pocket. you can see a picture of me holding the crossbow with the ammo holder in my pocket(yes it is me(yes i blocked out everything else)).
it is pretty easy to make, so i made it with the metal K'Nex pieces because i though it would be cool.
Step 1: Barrel
easy enough, just make from the pictures. its a track that the bolt travels on. nothing new.
Step 2: Ratchet System
the ratchet system. again, nothing to new here. making it from the pictures should be easy enough.
Step 3: Addons to Barrel and Bow
can't have a crossbow with out a bow. again nothing new. just make from the pictures.
Step 4: Renforce the Barrel and Handle
just more add ons to the barrel and the handle. make from the pictures.
Step 5: Stock
again easy. make from the pictures. it is 3 layers thick. look at the notes for some help if you don't get it.
Step 6: Head Rest Add On.
make from the pictures.
Step 7: Firing and Damage and Bolts
- load a bolt
- pull bow back and hook it into white connector
- pull trigger
Step 8: Extras
just the ammo holder.
well thats it for the instructable, i hope you like it.
