    Geezer, the straight action of my pump repeaters actually allow a bit faster repetitions than the original Chu-Ko-Nu. And I will probably add some kind of magazine spring (made from rubber of course) that hopefully will prevent the arrows from hopping up.

    I don't think it will be finished so soon. I will start with a little test setup, then take it from there.

    I'm actually working on a pseudo-automatic crossbow for my graduate class right now. The goal is to make something and get it ready to be launched on Kickstarter. Whether we do or not is up to us...

    I'd love to hear what you all have to say about it. Please comment and advise!
