I will upload all of the technical drawings and spec's as soon as i have the time.

this is called INSTRUCTABLES.com, FACEBOOK.com. why no instructable?!?!?!?!???

I haven't had time to finish the instructables because of shcool and work.

no prob, dude. But maybe you add some annotations about what you did, how you concepted things instead of giving "us"/the community/those who come to watch a simple photo-slide-show.

Even a sketch on how you plan to build this, would help and open upen up for discussion and development: Tell us about the parts you're going to use and its function.

Don't take it the hard, but people here (most of them are tinkers themselves) are really pissed about publishers who just post stuff for gaining fame: This is a website for sharing knowledge and as long as you provide the knowledge, everything's fine.

i saw your crossbow and remind me of van helsing's revolver crossbow and i got a few question to ask you:

how does the bolt magazine turn after a shot ?

is the bow reload by the motor at the back side ?

what is the range of this crossbow?

or_ford98 (author)deqwer2012-01-12

what about the pistol crossbow in robin hood and the men in tights? lol

amech3 (author)deqwer2011-11-21

The motor retracts the bow string and the bow spring triggers a lever which is connected to a linkage which in turn rotates a spur gear that I have used as a ratchet

gryphn311 (author)2012-01-01

Is it battery powered?

amech3 (author)gryphn3112012-01-01

Yes it is
