This is my first Instructable. Feel free to critique the item in a constructive fashion. It has a handle, part to assist with aim, and is relatively stable as a knex weapon.
I was able to get a orange connecter to fly from one end of my backyard to the other, which is approximately 56 feet.
When you are using the item, please make sure that your hands are holding the handle, or the ammunition could hit one of your digits. Also, when first using note that the ammunition could back fire and could ricochet off of a hard surface.
Fairly simple to construct, but uses an amount of orange connecters that is quite large.
Below is a picture of the finished product.
Step 1: Building the Handle
Pieces you shall gather:
4 yellow rods
22 orange connector
Step 2: Constructing the Part That Holds the Rubberbands
Pieces that are necessary for you to have possession of:
2 red rods
1 blue rod
21 orange connectors
Step 3: Aiming Object
List of objects that are pertinent for you to own to have the ability of completing this step:
1 red rod
2 white rods
2 one clip grey connectors
2 orange connectors
Step 4: Assembly of the Whole
This step gives a description through pictures of the process that you must go through to be able to put this Instructable together.
Step 5: Adding Rubber Bands and Description of Ammunition
You can use any ammo that has a clip to be able to pull it back on the elastic.
Step 6: Conclusion Along With Shooting Tecniques
Quod Erat Demonstrandum:
We have build a knex bow and arrow with a handle that fires lengthy distances.
When shooting, it is best to keep your palm on the part directly under the elastic to increase stability.
