    I'm proud to show you..
    My new guitar!!! (tann tannnnn... feeear of the daaaaarrrrkkk dan dan...) Jam


    Ok, Seriusly.
    This is a very rare south-german north-austria crossbow, is in the Turin Royal Armory, and I think it can be made from 1460, to 1480. I want to replicate it because is a very strange model: have a "north German" decorations, and a south german prod.
    Maybe I'll try to do for this crossbow, for my first time a composite bow.


    Unfortunatly (in my head) the trigger is not genuine!!! Evil or Very Mad now the question: What tiller is best for this strange model of crossbow?

    cheers Smile

    Enrico.

    Dude!... Nice axe!

    Why do you think that the trigger is not genuine? Is it the lack of sharpness in the elbow?

    1. the surface. is a "brut the forge" finish in some place, because you can see the hammered, something RARELY seen in an original
    2. the lack of sharpness in the elbow, and there are different colors and finishes between the end and beginning of the throttle. probable alteration.
    4. the sections. very rarely can be seen as approximate and square sections.
    5. type. the type which includes the trigger if we admit that is original and unmodified, is a type with a square section with a fine round, rarely used in Germany
    6. finishes, materials, decorations, style choices, indicate that this was a crossbow no doubt expensive. The trigger has nothing in common with an expensive product.
    7. entry into the prod: you may notice that the step on the throttle that is missing is a single surface with the workpiece.

    Sorry if i put number ... But now is more easy for all to ask questions or talk about These. Smile I have not not a great English, i hope this can help.

    Enrico,

    I think I understand most of your points. Number 7 is lost on me though.

    I am sure that you are correct about the trigger.

    The only picture I have of this crossbow is the black and white pic. from the catalog. I see that you have some other pictures as well. Can you share them with us?

    Sometimes I feel stupid, because I have the solutions under the nose.
    is true, that trigger is German, but not the three categories that you usually see!

    you're absolutly in right.

    Thanks Mac!

    Enrico.
