    Just saw this really interesting folding crossbow pistol on EBay. Supposed to date from the 1930s and Michigan... Asking $500.

    Wow this is really interesting if nothing else I kind of want one but $500 is a bit out of my price range.

    Actually, it is a lovely little bow! I wish I could afford that, but, uh... not so much! Too bad... I hope someone gets it who will cherish and appreciate it.
    Thanks for the look-see...

    It's till got 6 days to run -- or elsewas re-posted. The seller has had two offers, one expired,the other declined. Here's what he had to say about the piece:


    This is an Estate find of an outstanding hand crafted Pistol Crossbow. There is no Makers Mark or any identification that I can find. I was told that it was made in the
    late 1930's or early 1940's by a Gunsmith and a Bowyer in the Flint Mi
    area but I have no proof of this. The stock looks like Black
    Walnut ( hand checkered ) and the limbs look like Osage Orange.
