    Geezer here (aka, David Watson of New World Arbalest) We have made and shipped crossbows/parts to South America, New Zealand and Europe. Shipping costs more of course, but otherwise, it's do-able, so long as your local government doesn't object.  DRW/Geezer

    and before you ask, I suspect Alchem, Slobows, and Darkwood armory.... they're my major parts-suppliers, will also ship internationally.  If there's any question, ask them.  Geezer.

    What Geezer says, we take for granted how free we are with crossbows, not so much in other countries. Good idea to check first.

    thanks guys! now, it is pretty much illigal to sell and buy crossbows here in Norway, but just parts (such as prods and strings) would be alright don't you think?

    Well, I suppose nobody would object if you bought some cart-springs, Delrin or bone roller-bearings, or shelf-brackets, now could they.  If you put them to other uses, that's the way the cookie crumbles.  Geezer

    Hey there!

    I´d go with Geezers opinion.

    But to be honest it will be your own responsibility:
    noone can provide as good legal advise than someone that has native language law experience..
    So if you want to be sure take a look into your weapons law appendix where those things are regulated.
    Weapons (your statement crossbows are quite illegal in Norway so this is at least a categorized weapon) spare parts are often treated the same way as the whole thing.

    I can only tell for myself since crossbows are quite legal (18+) here in germany, customs department once didn´t knew about them and I had to give the guys a lesson in weapons law just to get my first and last alchem prod (only a prod and a string, not a whole crossbow).
    If I hadn´t had the right knowledge, I would at least had lost the prod or even had been accused.


    The dealer that sends the prod/parts to you will in no way be taken into legal responsibility, its your own neck to be worried about.

    Greetings Rizzar

    Hi there S.W. 
                    My advice would be to look a little deeper into Norwegian law.Is it illegal to possess a crossbow.If it is,then building one would be pointless,as you would then possess one,and as soon as that became known,I would think it only a matter of time before you received a visit from the local constabulary.Another point to consider would be that,if you can possess one legally,is it legal to use it,and for what?(i.e.target practice or hunting).If you are 'legal' so far,is it legal to import Crossbow parts?.If you can legally possess one,but not import parts legally,then you can manufacture your own parts,strings can be made easily from Dacron,there are how to videos on the internet.I'm sure nut material can be obtained in Norway.The most difficult part to manufacture would be the prod(bow),but even that can be done with fibreglass.There's a saying in English"where there's the will,there's a way",I'm sure if you want a crossbow badly enough,you'll find a way to obtain one.
                                                   Hermit.

    thanks for all the advice, and i have made some crossbows already but i'll try to look in to the laws now hehehee... however as i am no longer living in the suburbs or near a city without allot of nagging neighbors (not that anyone used to nag) i think i'll be fine, people around here grew up running around with shotguns at my age so i don't think anyone here would mind despite the law. (also, you can hear gunshows being fired evry now and then, as there's a shooting range only 300 meters away from my house) and it is indeed the prod that is the hardest to make so i've just bought my self some baseboard planks instead, all i have to do to it is to saw it the size i want, saw some nocks on each end, attach a rope and then just mount it to the prod

    here's two of the basic skane-crossbows i have made, on this first one the stock is just a leftover plain 1 meter long baluster, the prod (oak) is one of those baseboard planks i mentioned, i recurved the tips just by steaming them over a pot filled with water then just bended them the way i wanted afterwards, the mechanism works by that a peg is pushed upwards by a lever thus pushing the rope up from a grove, i mounted the prod with some cable ties (because i suck at k...   ...nothing) it's only about 25 pounds (could have made the prod shorter or give it a longer draw length)

    and here's another one, basically the same as the first just that i made the prod for this one aswell as i shaped the stock to a more traditional look, this one's about 32 pounds

    i have made more (some of wish are better and more powerful) but i have no pictures of them just yet

    and yes i do only shoot on targets, as in practise..
