A Few Random Crossbows Answered

I was bored so I made a few small crossbows, the ones with rails are more like indoor toys...they shoot everything and tend to keep it in one piece (most of the time) xD That little crossbow without rails still packs a punch, so don't try and shoot it at someone o.o' And uh that also counts for the other 'little' crossbow.

here is a idea, make the limbs able to bend up and down. and then attach rubber bands to pull it forward. it would make it work better(i think)

You mean artificial bend-able limbs using rubberbands and then using a normal string for tension? Done that before, not on this type though...might try it.

well, you don't need to use a regular string, but i think it would hold up better.

You mean like a band counter-tension technique? Could work, could prove very powerful...

Nice! Have you made anything that didn't use a "string/ tension" mech? Hey you're the crossbow master maybe you could finally fulfill my wishes for a cross bow side arm? Basically I just want a handle loading pistol that's no longer than 9 inches or so and uses a cross bow mechanism for firing. Do you feel up to that? If not I'll give it a go.

I Don't know about handle loading, but the Project Nine is small.

I did make a small rifle using the Blockheads trigger, it wasn't that great though =/

Does that mean that it needs to have a handle magazine? Doesn't seem impossible, but it needs some mechanism to stop the bullets from coming up when pulling back the strings.
Although saying...sounds like a great idea...I think I'll give it a go
And as side arm expert you should give it a go too =d

Alright cool. Yeah I was thinking handle loaded. Oh and if you get creative with it try folding arms so that it can be made compact while carrying it and then while actually using it as a side arm you can prop up the arms. I figured that by using a crossbow mechanism that the power of repeating pistols would increase greatly. Good luck! I'm working on my Assault Pistol but once I get bored of the UMP-45u I'll destroy it and use the pieces on a cross bow pistol. Oh yeah one more thing could I ask you to try if you get done with the side arm (or fail it...hopefully not) a mini folding crossbow? Like make a xbow where the limbs fold in and the handle folds up and possibly make the body telescoping so that it can slide in but I would be good with just the first two. It would be a fun secretive weapon to carry in a pocket.
