the begginings of my homemade crossbow
« on: December 18, 2010, 05:38:42 am »
ive been pretty big into making air-rifles and stuff, making all sorts of guns and the odd knuckle duster or 2 for some profit.

ive had this gun stock since i was about 13 and always wanted to make a really cool air gun out of it. but either havent had the time, or the money to make it. or the patience. so now ive decided im going to turn it into a crossbow, since it will be easier to maintain and wont need air every time i want to break something... so here are a few pics so far of what its going to look like.













to my luck i accidentally lined up one of the screw holes where the trigger was on the original gun. at first when i was drilling i though "fuck... thats gonna be a pain" but after thinking about how im gonna do my trigger, i needed a hole there to poke through the catching thing that will hold the wire/string in place. (im too smart for even myself :D )
after i get a trigger system sussed out i guess its time to put on some guide rails for the bolts. as the way it is now anything i try to shoot wont work because of the screws popping up. and it might damage the wire.

so.. thats the begginings of my homemade crossbow.. what do ya think?

Cool!

ive changed the design a bit.. the trigger system i had in mind isnt working as planned. nor is the backup plan one.
because its a gun stock i cant use traditional methods for a trigger because theres no room on the inside.
next step is finding and fitting the prod and ill have to tackle the trigger mechanism last when its all operational so its easier to work out.

Do you have or make/draw a blueprint before you started?

:P what for? nah i dont operate like that.
i was just lucky enough to come accross that metal strip thing i found in the shed, works perfectly.
i have a basic design plan in my head but i can only build what my materials and tools let me.  need to raid nans shed for some more materials, but last time i was in their i brought a mate and we were blowing up spray paint cans... so im not too popular around there.
