    This was originally an attempt to adapt my previous design to use the Chinese style trigger, though i realized that every part was 1/4" thick, then just how little metal was required for a crossbow where every load-bearing component is metal aside from the stock, which simply acts to connect the sideplates to the prod. Every component of this that's under any significant stress is 1/4" plate or 1/4" bolts, and all of these components can be sawn and drilled from a 6" by 7" square steel plate. To my knowledge, the poundage this thing can take should be enormous, especially for the cost.

    The trigger is a standard pin and lever type, but a pistol grip and a different trigger should be easy enough. I've decided to use a lever for this, as when i build it, i plan to use it to test prods on, as i expect it will be easily strong enough to handle most of them. 

    Here's a link to the Tinkercad page.

    And here's the SVG file of all the metal parts.

    Aside from those and the stock,  a spring to make the trigger engage is recommended. The lever is 1/2" by 1/2" and the pin connecting it to the trigger is 1/2" round, both can probobly be made of wood. All holes are 1/4".
