    chinese guy‘s unusual repeating crossbow

    Post by stm2010 on Fri Jun 03, 2016 3:18 am

    TOP view of the repeating x-bow


    Un-cocked state: the trigger is portable along the guide.



    #16 is the cocking bar , when it moves backward, the bolt is feed up, at the same time the bow begins to store energy.




    The bolts  are placed in a horizontal line, a heavy object is used to pull the bolt into the  feeding slot.


    The bolt firing mechanism is  very  suprising and low energy efficency.
    It uses a hard stick (#5) to hit the end of bolt, then the bolt get only a  little energy.


     x-bow trigger below is fixed in the body.







    Here is the news link of this repeating x-bow。

    Very interesting.  That swinging weight would be a problem in a handheld/hand carried weapon, acceptable in a tripod or stand-mounted configuration.  The horizontal bolt magazine reminds me of the "harmonica rifle" invented by Jonathan Browning, father of the more famous John Moses Browning, founder of Browning Arms.

    You  are right. As see in the video, it is very hard to hold and cock.
