200 $ Chinese Micro Bow MAXED OUT EXTREME (Tutorial)

hello and welcome to the slingshot channel I recently introduced this repeating bow to you I call it the instant Legolas 5th generation and it is based on a very expensive children's bow or kids bow shooting really really fine because of the great repeating function bang ha ha ha ha and of course because it allows such quick follow-up shots really people love it and I love it too the only issue is that of course it is a bit weak because it's made for children which makes it super easy to operate but on the other hand people always want something stronger and I recently purchased this Chinese triangle bow really compact it has 50 pounds of draw weight which is quite a lot so it's a powerful blow really but not too powerful to make it impossible a strong for the European mechanism and I'm gonna show you how I will make a magazine for this one and I will also also teach you a little bit how you can take just about any bow that you have and convert it into an instant Legolas first of all you have to settle on a certain arrow type and of course later on you have to use arrows with just two veins so yeah move if you have a three range arrow you have to remove two of them and reglue them so that they're flat but also you need to set the sight on the length now a long arrow like this will not work for this bow since as you see it has to kind of pull a systems here that make it impossible for the arrows to be fed from either side so for this bow the arrow must be longer than this one here in cut condition but also shorter so that it can stick up here and is not hindered by the strings here so I said it for the 15 inch arrows that you can buy for the cobra r9 and our 10 system I like those because they already have two veins only so there's no work to be done on those except maybe trimming down the veins a little bit so you can wheel it a flat or magazine and I'll show you about this is the right length as you see in Cocke condition the arrow is actually not hindered by the stress here see it's shorter than the strength but also it is possible to stick it upright on the string here then this is important because this is basically the mechanism to stack up the arrows so the lowest arrow needs to rest on the string and only falls into the slot in cocked condition so next you will need to find out how long the magazine will need to be and also how long the slot for the strings will have to be and I recommend clamping in the bow into a vise and now the next step would be better if you have a second person helping you because doing this alone is the kind of awkward but you can still do it so what you do is you basically measure the length from the end of the bow till the beginning of the string for the first value and in this case this is 37 centimeters and then you draw out the bow like so and you measure the distance until now which is 80 centimeters so you can also say that now 33 centimeters is actually the power stroke of this boat you need to write down these values as you gonna need them to design the magazine and of course keep in mind for your bow it may be entirely different then what these are the crucial figures now if we look into the design of the instant legolas what you see is that you actually need five layers of wood you need the inner layer you know so that has room for the arrows and so on you need two layers that are next to it and then you need two outer layers because you know you need the room for the year veins and for the fletchie so it's 1 2 3 4 5 layers of wood that you need to cut out and design and for the design layer I recommend starting with thin wood this is four millimeter plywood to design the outer part because the outer part will most complete the other layers will be less than that so these are the outlines for the design the arrows will stack up like this this is the extra slot space that you need to be able to cock table this is where the slot ends this means that here the string will rest so that the arrows can stack up on it these parts won't be cut out for the outer layer but they will need to be cut out in the inner layers since this is the room for the arrow to try them later on and this is the part where you attach the lever that presses down on the arrows they will be spring-loaded from here and as you see this has room for stacking up six arrows and you can actually make this higher if you want more ammo but in that case also of course it will be more bulky and this is actually the end of the magazine we have sawn out the first plate and also fitted it in a little bit this is mix really makes sense because can't really think about all the little details beforehand and as you see I put it in even though of course by now each string is still not running as a slot therefore it says the pressure on the side but you can already see that geometry is fine and you can also see that when I draw this out also the length of the slot is correct and you can also see that the need to cut out a little bit for the cables because they run like back and forth of it as you see they need some play and you can also see how nicely it fits in terms of the width this would later on have very little play so now we have to saw this out one more time I like to start with a slot because then everything is still as solid as can be in or as wobbly as it will be now we sought out these parts which are like the second layer and as you see it's almost the same but it has cutouts for the broad heads and also for the veins here plus also as you see the slot is continued because that's where later on the veins will go through so this of course you also need to saw twice and then there's going to be an inner layer that connects the two halves and this ideally you saw from material that is thick enough so that the veins would actually fit because they need to accommodate the veins later on after all five parts have been sawed out and glued together we now have one half where three parts are in and one half are only two layers are in and I can show you the principle how it works this is where you put in the arrows and as you see there's room for the reins and there is room for the broadhead and the arrows can slide down to this position but they cannot go all the way back because that is where only the string can go and if you release the string then the arrow will be pushed out so and light out to the front and if put together this looks like so you see room for the arrow room for the Caymans and this is where it's going to be attached to the bow so now I mounted the Huff's together and also shaped it a little bit here on the front so that it fits through the riser and now at this stage it is very important that if you put in an arrow and wrap it downward it goes very very smoothly inside also it should not fall out to the sides but if you here this to the front it needs to glide our very easily like so as a next step we're building this very simple lever as you see it has a little hook in the front so that you cannot dry fire the bow and there is a spring let me see camera focuses so there is a spring that keeps it loaded so when you unload it we simply lift it up and shift it a little bit to the side back so then you put in the arrows like so snap it in and now the arrow won't fall out because it's under pressure it sits right in here and if later on I showed it it's going to go back so now the next step is important because we have to sorry we have to saw in a little slot here like so because otherwise you won't be able to later on to install this thing onto the bow without removing the string which is a pain in the butt so it's so much easier here and then you simply fix it again with a spoon to make it stable so now we clamped it in for the first time we haven't really mounted it yet just you know just use a clamp to fix it to see if it does everything correct and what you can also see is that here in the end I fight the groove a little differently because this one here this I think would be too thick and the draw weight is too heavy to draw it back like this therefore I design it in a way that you can put it like here until you're all the way here and then of course it is important that you cannot see anything of this string anymore once you pulled it back yeah the error would now be in the damos position and if I release this year they would accelerate it we get into the final touches sanded the slot so that the string won't be chafed and also installed little stoppers for the string because that's gonna hit this with some force and you don't want this to hit the thin plywood that you have here so it's a little bit reinforced so this is the finished instant Legolas based on the cheap Chinese triangle bow let me show you its features but first of all as you can see I still haven't painted it and then of course it's easy you can paint it black or whatever I'll give it a camouflage paint job I think black would be most fitting for this device here so but I left it unpainted so that you can really see it first of all I want you to notice that the string really is in the middle of this thing so this string here runs through the slot without any chafing which is really important for the lifetime of the string also because of course the original site no longer worked I attached a red dot sight now right here as you can see I attached it to the sight without actually changing anything in the original bow at all and of course it's it's like everything in this bow right in the middle so this means everything is centered in this bow also note that the the cables here are running very freely so they're not touching the body of the instant legolas magazine as well and as you see these arrows are perfect for the drop couldn't be any longer and couldn't be much shorter either and of course there's one nice feature on this bow and this means it also has adjustable power now it's adjusted to like the softest power which makes it super easy to draw and actually a joy to shoot and as you can also see this is a lot thicker than the magazine that are used for the small you spoke and that is because I wanted to use the original EK archery arrows without sure cutting down on the on the veins and this means is not thicker but it doesn't matter because this one here you shoot by pulling from underneath like so switch on the red dot side first but you could also shoot instinctively of course we see people pull it back until you hear the typical click then you take aim and shoot and you can do this again of course very very easily and it's a ton of fun and of course even at the lowest draw away because of the long acceleration you have good power and as you see you draw from underneath therefore it's not as painful as on the other instant leg Allah so this is the big advance here that we have because this one is really easy to do like so and also I can aim the very traditional way but using the red outside and that is of course a lot more accurate let us clock the speed of the arrows and we're starting with the weakest conditions and how I did this is I turned these screws out five times so just one more time and it will fall apart 58 meters per second let's do one more sixty meters per second and one more 62 meters per second seems like it's getting a little faster as the magazine empties that's probably the case because the spring is of course getting weaker as the magazine empties now let us shoot the mini instead Legolas with the youth bow which happens to be a lot lighter in comparison and this one only has one setting which is full power a lot less comfortable to draw at the same 51 meters per second 52 meters per second so even at the weakest setting the triangle ball is stronger has more power than the useful but it is still kind of viewed and very lightweight alright time for the power shots now we've closed these gaps fully by turning in these screws all the way and it's time to check how fast the arrows by now the draw is harder but it's still controllable and I would say because you don't have to to set your fingers apart it is more comfortable to draw this bow at full power then the kids power at the reduced power 65 meters per second 67 meters per second 66 meters per second so that's 66 meters per second on average that's really fast I think for a small boat like this one here by the way isn't that an amazing little Radda a radar chronograph made by FX air guns we'll be in the store very soon I think it's already shipping in the UK and soon in Germany okay guys now we'll go for accuracy distance is about 12 meters and I'll fire all six shots that are in the magazine that's it and now you see Yuki and cock this again because it's stopped by the lever here which has a hook yeah I think I have to of course you know make it shooting a little bit more to the right and little down maybe that's because I shot it in with the weakest setting therefore it's normal it is shooting a little bit higher but other than that I can cover the entire group with my flat hand which isn't bad for my poor archery skills so the sixth-generation instant regulus I think we're making progress to answer your questions this one will not go into production I'm absolutely sure about this simply because this is not a model that I happen to have contacts to the manufacturer but in any case it's really fun and I hope that this little tutorial has helped you designing your very own is Legolas since as you've seen for making plans you need to know the exact length of the arrows that want to you that you want to use and of course the specifications of the bow other than that this is nothing but a simple box stacked arrows with a spring pressing down on them that's all it is so it's really nothing big and I think you can do it at home anyway this bow here I think is really nice fit for the instant Legolas since it's also full of archery inventions like this shoots of the center riser and also the compact size but it is of course not achieving the 50 joules that it achieves with the original much heavier arrows this is only getting to about I don't know maybe 35 rule and that is probably because first of all there's a little bit additional friction since this is pressed down with a with a spring that's not the case when you shoot a single arrow and also what you should not forget is that this may be very close to the maximum speed that this book can do this means that even if I could if I would go lighter on the arrows these are 16 gram arrows I think even if I would go lighter it will probably not shoot any faster we've seen the maximum of these visors don't forget this is a $200 bow we can compare it to thousand dollar masterpiece but other than that I think it's beautiful and I actually enjoy shooting it very much because it's kind of a sexy thing and accurate Wow so much fun I can't stop doing it and I hope you like it because I certainly do anyway that's it for today thanks then bye oh I got one more that's not so bad either

  1. You're pretty close to the chrony ! Make shure the arrow has left the string before the tip gets to the chrony. Otherwise you get false readings.

  2. I always wanted tutorials for your projects! Haha I love that feature! However guys Joerg is not responsible if you shoot yourself in the hand while doing this!

  3. your english accent is not british nor american. but i understand your accent better than other youtuber from US or UK.

  4. Please Mr. Sprave run for Minister of Defence for Germany. You would be far better than these stupid radical Feminist von der Leier and AKK.


  6. Had to come to this channel, it’s the only channel except for the king of random that I’ve watched for 4+ years… but with what happened to him I needed to come back to this
