    Alloy bull-pup crossbow MK2 project

    Post by B.Cheers on Tue Dec 11, 2012 2:48 am

    First topic message reminder :

    Howdy every one
    So im starting my new crossbow which will be a MK2 of my last crossbow just improved and with a few extra features and will be keeping a update on here every week/month or so.

    Im going with a all alloy construct since im better working with metal then wood and am using some airsoft gear like a airsoft folding stock,foregrip,grapic sight and handgrip which greatly reduces the amount of work i have to do.



    I started making the trigger first since the rest of the crossbow body will be built around/from the trigger, Its all alloy apart from the sear,latch and pins. But am taking my time on the trigger since im still waiting on a 20mm dovetail rail for my holographic sight.

    @Kenh lol na i wouldn't waste a harpoon bolt trying to hit a barra, i hate fresh water fish im mainly hoping i can hit a mangrove jack or bream since i know a few good spots for spear and hand fishing.

    Oh yeah! Love those Mangrove Jack. When I lived on Kwajalein, the local Marshallese taught me to spear fish them. Great eating! Good luck with that!!

    Howdy everyone
    So I have been somewhat busy with other things, but finally got a new video of my crossbow in action i would say its about 99% done yet haven't had the time to finish it.

    So here it is finally and after all the testing and firing its still going good ive prob fired it around 500 times or more.
