    crossbow #2

    Post by engineerit on Mon Mar 31, 2014 4:21 am

    latest crossbow!


    I wanted to have it as short as possible so the trigger was made to have the nut at the rear and the trigger towards the front. 9.5 inches long, bow makes it about 17 inches wide, very happy with the build and cant wait for the next!

    Twee little bow! What do those little bolts weigh in at? Is it a 50 or 80# prod? I used the "80#" ones on my student's stonebows. What draw are you using, we used 7"
    cheers,

    That looks like a fun shooter. Bet it's pretty stable for a one-hander. I have a bunch of those little aluminum bolts, got annoyed when the plastic ends kept breaking off so I cut them off, leaving just a stub. They flew just about as well that way, they're pretty point-heavy.
