It's just a crossbow shaped like a Colt M1911. That's it. You know that you want one.
WARNING THIS IS NOT A TOY BE CAREFUL DON'T SHOOT AT ANYONE (EXCEPT IN SELF DEFENSE, THATS OKAY I GUESS). IF YOU ARE AN IDIOT, JERK, DRUNK, STONER, OR CRACKHEAD, GO HOME AND RETHINK YOUR LIFE.
By the way please vote for me in the contests that I entered this in. Its easy, it'll just take two seconds. Just click the vote tab at the top and check all the boxes.
I would love to see any other designs you guys could make, from little derringers to sub-machine guns. if someone could make a steampunk crossbow, then please show it.
Materials needed are quite simple:
A piece of thin craft plywood, about 3-ply (I got mine from a old kitchen cabinet)
A reciprocating saw blade
26 gauge steel wire (doesn't need to be too precise, just about 1/16" dia.)
Tools needed are:
Shop Assistant (for taking pictures, retrieving tools, and the like)
Scroll Saw (or any other fine, precise saw)
Knife (always handy)
