I am Making first cross bow and been thinking about the trigger - i have read lots Info But bit lost as some articles seem to indicate making the trigger and mech from 1/4" (6mm) aluminium or brass (etc) - where others seem to all have the rollernut or a claw where the Bolt will sit between ..
If all made from 1/4" stock where does the bolt Lie - just infront of the string holder or beside touching the string -
is anyone has any links or pictures of this style where bolt lies appriciated
I understand with roller nut or claw goes Inbetween and touched the string but what about this other designs -
Also whats the pros and cons or each type as the flat made stock seems easier to make and would make the complete mech much thinner. ?
Also does anyone have a simple trigger design suggestion (making wooden stock with laminated Bamboo prod) - no idea the draw weight but should not be to high well under 100lbs i would guess ..
any info or links appriciated , Have read everything i can find about triggers But no one brings up this specific question as far as i can find.
