    Hello, I purchased this Crossbow 10 plus years ago as a gift, but my husband never liked it. I know nothing about these. I'm assuming it's made for a movie prop? The bolt would shoot Through the mouth of the Dragon. I do not have any of the bolts.
     I took some pics & placed them in my personal folder on here, but seeing that I have never posted here before I may mess that up.. Let me know if you need better pics, & Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for letting me know that my pics don't show. Will you be able to view them using my username in Gallery "User's Albums" ? I can see others so thought they could see mine. But, I shall keep trying.
    It's Quite amazing!

    I'm assuming it's Chinese by the look of the head of the dragon. It's probably like a tourist souvenir still it's beautiful carved.

    I don't think so, unless if you can find any sort of brand or marking on it. It does look vintage as you said though, but I'm not sure how you can find out the age besides that.

    I have one too, it is a wall hanging reproduction of a Chinese crossbow.  I say wall hanger because that is the only thing it is good for.

    The carving on the grip is a dragon with it's mouth open.

    Assuming the lock is reasonably strong this Chinese wall hanger might make a decent shooter with a different bowstave/lath/prod.  Adding heavy carvings to the ends of the limbs is a great way to retard performance.  Get rid of the critters, trim the ends down as light as possible, and it might actually shoot.
