    Very nice work Asken! cheers What did you use to make your limbs? They look too straight to be the normal car springs.

    Thanks, Ali.j the spring should be 6mm thick like yours. Although the height is only 50mm instead of 60mm.
    Thanks Jaeger22, really appreciate it Smile They actually are springsteel from a car. I cannot say if they are too straight since its the first time doing limbs from springsteel.. I have also not tried to pull it too its proper draw lenght since i havent made a stock yet. I am going to try make one this weekend and ill come back with an update.
    I will also not be standing close to this mean build when cocking this badboy for the first time incase anything will snap.

    I cant tell where the car springsteel came from because i got it from my uncle, although he is in the military so i guess its from a military vehicle.

    With the kind of power you'll be making ,--make sure you don't dry fire. It will be catastropeic.
