Over the past...week I have been developing a knex creation. Thus this x-bow. THe x-bow has greatr range and decent accuracy. The trigger is a rachet system and is VERY reliable. So herez it is.
P.S The bow contains 2 blot holders for two C-Class bolts.

I dont have a poic for this, but the bow attachesto the green connectors on the bottom of the barrel and the holes of the connectors line up.
WHOALA you're done now to load and fire... >:)
Step 8: Stringing
I lied, this how you put the rubber band on a.k.a stringing the bow.
Pic1:Loop the rubber band onto the yellow rod INBETWEEN the yellow and orange connector.
This goes for both sides. Now we learn how to load and fire >:)
Step 9: Loading and Firing
There are 3 main types of ammo i like to use. One is an A-Class shot. That is a grey rod with a red connector with a ball joint at the end. Anothor is a B-class. That is a Red connector on a red rod. The final one is a C-class which is a red connector on a yellow rod; two of these can fit into the bow.
To load, you pull the rubber band back onto the White connector sticking up at the back of the barrel. Then you load your shot into the barrel and pull the trigger.
