    First topic message reminder :

    Hi guys just out of interest, the tower guard crossbow you see all over google images, was it an actual bow or just something from someone's imagination. I'm not interested in the product, but more the design having some historical background

    Thanks mac just been going through the links u sent, the images and art on the viking forum are amazing. After looking at your last build and rizzars last i think i will have a go at building one, really amazing bows , and buy the looks of it the strait tiller is very versatile.
