    3D crossbow design

    Post by dutchbow on Thu Feb 07, 2019 12:34 am

    I'm working on a design for a modern target crossbow.
    when finished I will use this crossbow in 20 meter competitions in The Netherlands.
    It will have a 120 or 150 LBS prod and a 2 stage trigger with adjustable travel and pull force.
    The crossbow will be completely adjustable to fit the shooter.

    The design is not yet completely finish but I wanted to share it with you all.

    Very nice -- looks like a crossbow version of the old Schuetzen rifles of the 1800s and early 1900s.

    Looks great!

    Over-string trigger latch? Are you incorporating a string sled?

    Would love to see detail of the trigger mech.

    Will watch progress with interest!

    Yes, it is an over-string trigger latch.
    An under-string trigger latch can cause "jumping" of the string,
    resulting in less accuracy.

    As soon as I have more details of the trigger mechanism I will post them here.
