    The first one, one of the half a dozen in my city's Museo de Armería:

    Spanish crossbows in museums Vitoria_-_Museo_de_Armeria_03

    No photographs are allowed Mad so I had to link a pic from the wiki.

    Don't ask for further information: if it exixts, is very unreliable... Suspect

    I'm puzzled by the two bolts (probably replicas) that can be seen. I don't know of any other ones simmilar to those, any help?
