    Interested in buying, and does anyone know the wait time to get one of these bows completed?

    Geezer and I are STILL making crossbows! Here at New World Arbalest!

    Wait time... Hmmm. Gulf Wars is coming up, and I am going to New York soon to (I HOPE!) study the Ulrich bow there in the Met Museum.
    We DO have some bows done right now, for Gulf Wars, so, those are for sale, and, for a custom bow, some time between 1 to 5 months, I would say. Depending on the bow you may want, and the other bows we have in queue. Two of the bows in my queue are quite fancy... but one is not in any hurry, and actually, my research at the Met Museum is for these last two bows.

    Drop a note to Geezer here, or, to me, at Dirtwitch@dirtwitch.com. And we can sell or make a bow for you.

    Best!

    Great! Yeah, we make some fancy, and some are just plain and 'boring' (as tho a crossbow could EVER be boring...) , but they shoot bolts, which, is what we want, no?

    Best!

    The crossbows at the Met are hard to get a good look at. They are hanging with the top against the wall and the display case is big. Bring a good camera with some sort of short range telescopic lens. I was there a few times and the case makes it hard to get really close for a good look.

    Ive been into traditional archery for 15 years, the part i really enjoyed the most was making arrows, and i love mechanical things, im getting more and more excited daily to get a crossbow and target shoot/make my own more artistic looking bolts.

    Just waiting on EBAY to come through lol Smile
