Intro: Pistol Crossbow Quiver
NOTE! English is not my main language (not eaven second) so if i have writed somting odd, just ask and i try to help. thanks for understanding.
I wanted to do quiver by myself because i didn’t find any quiver for pistol crossbow bolts, at least not any good ones on internet stores.
Good news is that you can make it very cheap, its cost less than 3 dollars and took less than 15min to make. (at least I think) it looks awesome. Please, read this tutorial once before you start to make your own quiver, it will help you.
If you are larper, I think you can find this tutorial help full too.
You will need.
Mailing pipe (with plugs)
Old camo shirt
Saw / Knife
Step 1: Mailing Pipe
Now take your bolt and make mark to pipe like in the picture. And saw it. On the other end of the pipe, make the mark to 5cm (2inch) from the top. So you get “hat” for the quiver. You should now have 3 pieces of the pipe. One extra and two for the quiver. See the second image above.
Step 2: Styrox
Now make marks on your styrofoam with pen and pipe (if the material is soft enough you don’t need to make it smaller than the hole in the pipe) Saw / cut the piece of and put it in the bottom of the pipe.
Step 3: Locker / Stopper for the "hat"
Next you need to have something to make stopper / lock for the hat. use scissors and carton. You just need a shape of rectangle and but it inside the hat. Look pictre below. DO NOT STABLE IT YET!
I will change this to black when i buy carton next time.
Step 4: Fabric Part 1
Now, destroy your shirt (I tooket only sleeves from it). use pipe adjust the size. Make sure that piece of the shirt is longer than the pipe and 1 inch wider. This is important to make better looking quiver. Turn corner of one long side of the fabric as in the picture, use glue or needle and string.
Step 5: Fabric Part 2
Open the plug on the end of the pipe and roll fabric around the pipe so you can pull fabric inside the pipe and lock it with the plug. glue or staple the other end inside the pipe on both pieces. Remember the lock / stopper what I made you to do before? Now is time to staple it inside the hat.
Step 6: Fabric Step 3
Last thing you need to do is glue this turned side of the fabric so it won’t rip. You can also clue leather stripe over the line and add belt clip to it.
And you are done!
Step 7: Final Words / Free Tips.
I made two of them, one with the pocket and one with German flag. Both was on Flecktarn shirt.
Use marker to hide staples.
If you don’t like white plugs, paint them green, or use markers to do camo pattern on them.
remeber that pistol crossbow is not a toy, it's a weapon. never buy / give pistol crossbow to your child without surveillance.
