Just finished this in time for a 3 day hunting trip. Looking foward to putting some serious hurt on some goats , and maybe, hopefully, a red deer .
This crossbow is a bit of an assembly. The trigger, irons, trigger guard and stirrup have been made by other people, so I can't take credit for those components.
Anyway, the specs are:
Draw weight: 300#plus at 13" powerstroke.
Prod: Powertuff with micarta overlays
Tiller: Homemade blackwalnut plywood
Barrel: Bloodwood and Hickory
Bow irons: trigger guard and stirrup: Purchased roughed out.
Buttplate: sideplates and sights: Brass
Finish: Tru Oil on wood. Caustic bluing on iron.
This crossbow is a bit of a brute, and is an effort to load even with the Excalibur twin pulley cocking aid.
It does, however, shoot it's 1250grain hunting bolts extremely quickly !
I have the peep sights zeroed for 25m and have been pleasently suprised with it's accuracey.
Anyway, better go and pack!
