    I build this model to close my series of Asian crossbow. I had mot any traditional Korean bow then I use a classic 150# fibreglass bow. I had to shorten the rope to increase the band, it work very well and the weight whit the lever pretty light!!! I have a draw length of 8", man it is dam powerful and a big fun !!!!!

    Those look really good Jeep. Thatnks for interducing me to yet anouther interesting crossbow. I hadn't heard of the Korean repeating crossbow.



    The video is nice, Get to see the bow in operation which was good because I wouldn't have guessed that the prod rotates up during cocking Shocked Craziness.



    Keep up the good working and keep them coming our way.

    Nice collection jeep! Smile

    And to think you've built all of them yourself...man, that is something worth respect.

    The pivoting prod is a really cool detail indeed. Thee freedom of motion that this mechanism allows, opens doors to several improvements:

    • The torque of the limbs is reduced
    • String's friction against the rail is reduced/balanced .
    • New crossbow spanning possibilities are introduced.

    It kinda got quite here on the subject, but a modern example (Twinbow)
    with a pivoting riser is yet another great example of what can be done
    when you throw an extra joint into mix. Smile

    Thank you for sharing this, jeep. I would have never known that there was a
    more refined version of this type of bow, designed and built by Koreans. I just limited myself to thinking the pivoting prod was a modern addition that I once seen on Del the Cat's repeater.

    Very cool build! I like the rotating prod but it scares me a little for some reason. I have never understood why the Chinese didn't add another member to the lever. As I have shown it is fairly simple to make the shuttle slide straight back and forth instead of up and over.

    Well considering the original might date back to 200bc I guess they were doing OK.

    Build more repeaters! My only complaint is the bow. I would love to see a nice wood limb on that crossbow. I see so many great crossbow builds and I am always a bit disappointed when they slap the same $29 bow on all of them.

    I have made two models that are basically variations of the Chinese Chu Ko Nu.

    A small one:



    And it's bigger brother:



    Of course I use rubber that costs much less than 29 dollars... and is more compact.

    Joerg, I love your weapons and I completely appreciate your use of ultra cheap materials but personally, I prefer the look and feel of a good bow. There's something to the snap of a string that really gets me excited.
    I have introduced many people to the slingshot channel and will continue to wait for each new project. You are quite a unique inventor. Cheers buddy.
