Tactical Shotbow

About: I love building and engineering, downhill skiing is the best sport on earth, because snowboarding is stupid. Yes, I am admittedly a star wars geek. My favorite music is 80's rock. I have been buildin...

I like oodammo, I wanted to make a new knex gun, and I have heard alot about S0lekill3r's shotbow.  So I made a shotbow.  This shotbow is much more compact than sS0lekill3r's, and functions just as well.  I decided to put my dot sight I made a few weeks ago on it, and also to have a comfy forgrip.  I have not discovered how to put on the rubberbands in a one pull=2 shots configuration, so this is always a shotgun.  Hope you like it!

Credit to S0lekill3r for the mag, and that's it!

If you build one, please show me, I'll add it to the ible.

Pictures of any mods wanted.

-has tactical rail on top
-exellent trigger
-10-round mags
-high ROF
-looks sick
-100% reliable.  It has never failed me in the 100's of times I have fired it.

-very slow mag reload
-uses lots of white connectors
-can't really put into a semi-auto mode.

Lets get building!  Don't forget to rate and comment!

Step 1: Main Body

Okay, this is where the magic happens.  Very simple, I start with the middle layer.

Step 2: Handle

This is the handle and beginning of the stock.  Very easy.

Step 3: Trigger

This is a quik and easy step.  Follow the image notes.

Step 4: Stock

This is the stock.  Make it.

Step 5: Final Touches and Assembly

Yay!  Were're almost done!  Just a few things more!

How to fire:  You pull back the puller thingy untill the ramrods lock, then push it all the way forward.  Pull the trigger.  Repeat 10 times.

I can get a really high rate of fire going, the puller thing makes your life alot easier.

Step 6: Fun Pictures and Your Tactical Shotbows.

If you build your own Tactical Shotbow, show me!  I'll add it in this step.

I took some pictures of the oodammo in mid-air.  It is really cool, but fuzzy.

    Looks and sounds pretty great from what you posted. I'd like you to add "shotgun", "gun", "true trigger", "dot sight", "crossbow", "Xbow" and any other adjectives you can think of for more attention. I'm favoriting it to build later before I rate it


    Yeah, I had no problems with mine either, until seleziona posted those pics, and then mine started failing about a day after. Oh well, cool that you built it.


    Lol thanks, but this is no where near that great. You should check out my bolt action gun forum post I made, that is a lot better.


    Idno why I liked it so much, probably cuz it was easy to handle,
    high accuracy (Oodammo) and errrr just good!
    anyways ill check it out :)

    Just make your own stock, then. It isn't too important, as long as you get that black rod on top right.

    It could, it would be harder to use and would not have guided pins but it would work.
