Introduction: Night-Hawk Scout Bow V3-4

About: I play guitar in two bands and enjoy writing music. I build Knex bows/guns but because of my lack of a digital camera i cant post any of them =/

This is a prototype bow im working on. Its a scout bow so its ment to be small but powerful and trust me this thing packs a punch.
Can fire my arrows 200+ft and that's with old sucky elastic bands.

Its also using a new suspension system in the limbs ( you wont be able to see it form the pics) that allows for huge torque to be put on the bow.

    Could you actually post a how-to guide for making this? you mentioned a new suspension system in the limbs but we cannot see it to properly and correctly replicate any of these designs. Instructions on how to do so would be amazing!

    It would be greatly appreciated if someone uploaded a thoroughly detailed instructable

    Im pretty sure any knex weapon cant shoot over 200ft and still be very accurate.

    Actually a compound bow, regardless of what it says in the game.

    Don't care.  Any old slingshot can do it.  Silentassassin made a video showing my OSSR shooting through 2 sides of a cardboard box from 20 feet.
