New guy here. Starting work on a primitive crossbow with a notch lock and a wooden prod. Gonna try for around 70 lbs. Just as a learning project for making a steel prod roller nut bow in the future. I have some 1075 spring steel and some knife making, bowyery and fletching experience so hopefully things will work out.
I shot a friend's Excaliber the other week and was really impressed but don't have $550 to drop on a bow at the moment, maybe next year. I always like the medieval and primitive crossbows better anyway.
I have lurked a lot over the last week and while this place isn't the busiest forum, you guys really have some talent.
Looking forward to posting pictures of my project.
