    Unsure of the strength of trigger mech

    First topic message reminder :

    Hey hows it going everyone
    After finishing my first crossbow i learn quite abit of better trigger design and after having a look around on here i found a bull-pup trigger mech that i think will work quite well. However today i drew out the stock and cut out the trigger mech in cardboard and found that the pivot point between the trigger and latch are not straight, will this effect pull and strain on the latch. Also i was thinking of building the release out of a boat roller since there cheap brand new and are a high compound plastic will this be able to stand up to a 100lb plus leaf spring prod.
    But i will post up the progress of my mk2 crossbow since my inbuilt cocking lever may interest some people.


    Thanks Ben

    @Todd the archer the draw is 7.28 inchs as for the draw weight not too sure would be just over 100 pound.
