    See some of our stuff at www.sodermanlandsarmborstskyttar.se and see the "forum" for hundreds of pictures of ongoing projects and visited events.
    -Only in Swedish unfortunately but i think you´ll enjoy the detailed pictures. Or use Google translate to translate to your language cheers

    Thanks for the warm welcome !!
    Ahh i forgot the .se Embarassed Corrected that.
    Yes we have a lot of nice crossbows here.
    Under the royal castle there is the lovely royal armory and then there´s the "Skokloster Castle" wich is a goldmine for crossbow freaks like us cheers .
    se http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=PqALI0A
    Aprox 50 Crossbows hangin in the roof of Gustaf Wrangels armoury.
    Chief Commander Wrangel was plundering all of Northern Germany during 1630-1648.The 30 year war. A horrific reading what happened there and then Mad btw.

    More lovely pictures will follow as soon i have finished the moving to my new house (and new workshop in the basement Smile ).

    Welcome to the forum Vidar Halvstak!

    I've spent past hour admiring your website/forum...very impressive work and a great community. Smile

    I'm sure I speak for everyone here that we are always glad to see crossbow builders from across the sea visit our pages and share their wonderful stories.

    Again Welcome ,Vidar Halvstak, to The Arbalist Guild (USA).

    We have just started our little crossbowcommunity and are learning as we go. Mostly by making our own projects and successes and misstakes, but also from our very skillful crossbowfriends in Germany wich we visit every summer at a lovely crossbowmeeting, se http://armborst.forum24.se/armborst-about14.html
