I'm tempted to do a low/very low draw weight bow, bundle prod, with a reverse draw in effect just a big pistol and little more than a toy.
As always the biggest issue is fabricating a lock I only have very basic hand tools so I need a design that is easy to build, safe and has a reasonably light trigger pull.
As I hope to build something like a pistol it would need a trigger rather than a long leaver, I have read here (thanks) that delrin with a steel insert should work for a nut but that is only part of it.
That mechanism is from Terry Stuarts book, if I were to lengthen the nut to bulk it up and move the cross pin (sear) away from the pivot is it likely to work?
I would like to laminate the stock is Marine grade plywood (hard wood no voids) a suitable material?
Thanks All Ora
