Step 1: What You'll Need.

You'll need:
2 single slotted dark grey pieces
2 red sticks
1 light grey 2 slotted piece
and 1 rubber band ( about medium size, larger than the one in the picture)
a couple (small) paper clips (colored paper clips would be good)

Step 2: The Crossbow (rubber Band)

Tie a knot (well, its kinda like a knot) using a rubber band on the Grey k'nex pieces ( shown in picture 2).

Step 3: The Crossbow (rubber Band)

First, connect the 2 red sticks to the 2 slotted light grey piece. Then connect the rubber band piece(s)
onto the top of the red sticks.

Step 4: The Ammo

Take the paper clip and bend it as in picture 2, then finish bending it like in picture 3.

Step 5: Loading and Fireing

Put the curved part of the paper clip onto the rubber band, then put the long bent part of the paper clip through the bottom hole of the light grey, 2 slotted piece. To fire turn it upside down, then press down on the part of the paper clip sticking up. If it does not fire retry, or turn upside up and nudge the paper clip up.

    Not really; this is even less well designed than most if the block trigger guns on this site.
