I go by Vince. I am truly new to the world of crossbows but have always found them fascinating. I am going to attempt to make one for myself. I came across this forum and found it very interesting with lots of good information.
My two main questions before I try to build 1) The trigger mechanism. I see a lot of good designs but I am not sure about how to obtain the necessary material. I have seen where some have forged their own aluminum...I do not want to go that route so wondering if there is other resources.
Secondly, not quite sure of the type of stock is best to go with (design I mean). Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Again this is a great forum and love all the topics--I have much to learn!
