    Hi folks

    After few weeks of lurking the forum and a couple of emails with Basileus with my annoying noob questions , is time for presentation.

    I'm a traditional archer approaching crossbow building. I'm scraping my head on the first one with no other intention other than prototyping.

    Actually I'm also looking for crossbow parts dealer in Italy: although medieval crossbow are very popular here everybody seems to do his own thing... If you have some advice thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the site. Sorry that I don't know a proper Italian greeting but my accent is terrible and I would just butcher the pronuciation anyways

    Not sure of any Italian crossbow part makers, I know there some in other parts of Europe but not sure of any Italian ones. But good luck and feel free to ask those questions.
