    Just found this sight today while searching for information on constructing crossbows. Well it appears I found what I was looking for. I've been involved with primitive, traditional and modern archery for 25 years and know absolutely nothing about crossbows let alone building one. I am very excited. woot2

    Thanks!

    As far as production crossbows go, the Excalibur has got my eye. I hunt and enjoy target shooting everything. I like simplistic traditional designs more than modern if that makes sense. I am going to search this sight for a while and figure out some trigger designs and probably start with a fiberglass composite limb. We'll see.
