    First topic message reminder :

    So far i've got the bow, upper machanism, stock and sights ready, but does anyone have a picture of the internal trigger mechanism?

    Lien,

    VERY COOL !!!!!!!!!! Could you show pictures of the stock area of the bow, and of it cocked for action? Looks Great ! You should certainly have a feeling of accomplishment ! Most impressive !

    Lien,

    Could you post pictures of the trigger mechanism as to how it is constructed? Do you have pictures of the finished project?

    It is a very interesting build and apparently requires a nice level of metal working skills. If you haven't already checkout the topic: Latchet Crossbow build along by Leo Todeschini ........ topic started by Basillisk 120........ go to the suggested web-site.... beautiful build.

    Thanks

    Chaz
