    Australian eucalyptus and yellowheart wood. No cocking mechanism. Mild recurve, maybe 150 lb @ 12" draw. I'll probably go with a swinging stirrup for this one. Adf and trigger safety.

    Watch me build...

    Some pics. Getting some finish. Needs a bow bridle, some mechanical stuff still but it shoots really nicely. Lighter draw, may be 120-130# @ 11" draw

    Thanks. I posted the test firing at my Instagram, actionbow crossbows.

    It's basically done. Might add a stirrup but I kind of like it without it. Its really lightweight and the bow comes off with one bolt. Definitely needs adf.

    Can't tell for sure. Do you have a sight on the bow?  I'm an older target and hunter   archer. Both crossbow and compound bow are deadly accurate.

    I am very fond of the red sights.  I have one on my bow ,my crossbows, and my deer rifles. They are only good to 100 yds though cause beyond that the dot covers to much of the target.Almost all my hunting is  70 yd.s and under.Keep up the good work . Your stuff looks amazing.I really like the way you mix the old and the new styles.On the crossbows like these,even a cheap Daisy works well. No recoil to contend with.

    That's really pretty, I love the contrasting wood choices throughout. What is the metal shroud on the front for? I thought it might be a front sight location, but if you're just mounting a red dot...
