    First topic message reminder :

    So far i've got the bow, upper machanism, stock and sights ready, but does anyone have a picture of the internal trigger mechanism?

    Im building something similar to this

    Lien,

    VERY COOL !!!!!!!!!! Could you show pictures of the stock area of the bow, and of it cocked for action? Looks Great ! You should certainly have a feeling of accomplishment ! Most impressive !

    Lien,

    Could you post pictures of the trigger mechanism as to how it is constructed? Do you have pictures of the finished project?

    It is a very interesting build and apparently requires a nice level of metal working skills. If you haven't already checkout the topic: Latchet Crossbow build along by Leo Todeschini ........ topic started by Basillisk 120........ go to the suggested web-site.... beautiful build.

    Thanks

    Chaz
