    My resent project.. Small crossbow with a special look, designed mostly
    for target shooting. Made of wood (maple), steel and little silver. Prod
    made by pressing unidirectional fiberglass strips on a wooden core (see
    better description in "Technology"). Lock has an original design with
    automatic safety system, I will present later how it works..
    Technical data:
    Draw weight 120 lbs
    Draw length 6.8"
    Bolt speed little over 50 m/s, with a 20 gramm bolt

    Overall weight around 5 lbs

    Overall length 29"

    Wow Shocked You did some good work with that crossbow. I really like the overall lines of your crossbow and the silver on black of the lock is a great touch.

    Here's a pictures from insights of a trigger mech. Actually, most of the springs aren't shown here, but main idea must be clear..

    Safety work just perfectly, it moves to "close" automatically when you cock a crossbow.

    Very nice. I do believe that the claw over design is a better design.

    If you look closely, there are two pins right behind the prod. I believe those are meant for a spanning lever. Smile

    You sir, are one very talented individual. I love the styling of your crossbow and as was mentioned the black and silver hardware looks great. I think my favorite aspect though has to be the trigger mechanism. As a firearms enthusiast I have been able to see all manner of trigger groups, and what you have there on your crossbow is certainly something to be proud of.

    Thanks for such comments.
    With 120lbs prod it is possible to cock manually, even without a
    stirrup. Although, a spanning lever will be presented, along with a
    sight. Lever will give an option for stronger prod, and I've already
    done it in a draft version.. I've been completely occupied with my
    thesis, so it took long time to design and make those features.

    westwind
    , trigger mechanism, indeed, took the most time to produce. I
    am pleased with it's performance, so I'd recommend this scheme for this
    type of crossbow.. It's basic idea I found on a Russian forum, that have been linked here several times..

    In this prod I used thin modelling plywood, but it wasn't good. I did already broke this prod, but indeed with a heavy overdraw by a wrong shaped spanning lever. Now the new one (or few) prod is under work, and as a core I'll use thin ash veneers or maybe even carbon fiber. lets see.
    According to literature, best wood for a core of a prod/bow is maple, birch, bamboo, maybe elm (not sure, but I'd try).
