    Hi "Xbow-makers"!

    I build this about a year ago. I used oak, nut wood and cow bones for the inlay etc.

    It's about 13lbs... no mistiping, no yoke, it's LARP crossbow... so we shoot each other.... Twisted Evil

    Update: Ahh I see there is a LARP topic too... but my one looks more like a 'real' one, so maybe can stay here... I hope.

    Do anybody have museum photos, drawings, period illustrations about late 16, early 17th. century crossbows, like this(it's not my build!!!!!!)???? I may interested to buid a similar one... real ~600-900 lbs...

    If it wasn't for the soft tipped LARP bolt, it would have taken me some time to catch on to it being a LARP crossbow at all...my best bet at figuring it out would be the low power prod(bow) and even then...it's still a very nice build. Congrats and Welcome to the Arbalist Guild. king

    Glad to have you on our team. Smile
