Mini Powerful Knex Bow




Introduction: Mini Powerful Knex Bow

About: im british and im proud of it.

This Mini Bow uses only 19 pieces and fires between 35-45+ feet, as always, depending on the elastic bands you use.
It is the smallest knex bow on this site, and i have seen about 99% of knex guns so i must me right.
This is my first instructable so don't be harsh on your comments, but if you are stupid enough i'll get you back.

Read everything on this instructable to make your life easy, that way there will be no need to comment badly or ask stupid questions with obvious answers.

Step 1: Parts List

To have a good instructable you MUST have a parts list to make life easy for your maker (or whatever you call the person making what is in your instructable) Anyway here it is.


2 red
4 green
1 white snowflake (can be substituted) for anything with a hole or nothing, it just makes it more accurate.


4 small white/grey/bendy purple
4 blue/metallic
2 yellow/dark grey


2 small wheels, without the rubber bit.
Good elastic bands for good performance.


1 grey/black rod
1 grey connector

Step 2: Attaching Elastic Bands, Loading and Firing

Attaching Elastic Bands

Loop one part of the elastic band around the wheel and to make sure you will get good power it should be hard to loop it round the other wheel.

Loading And Firing

Get your grey/black rod and your grey 1 connector and put it through/thru the white snowflake and if your elastic bands are thick it will be easy to use, so pull back like an ordinary bow as far as it goes (the connector at the front will stop you from pulling it back too far) and let go thhhhhhhiump on the cardboard box and a hole in the wall , then going through the car passing by, then through my neighbours front door, then being stopped because it ran out of power.
