If the ball has clearance to the wall, there is no problem with the German law. A barrel must apply "a certain amount of guidance" (ein gewisses Maß an Führung), otherwise it isn't a barrel.

Crossbows are falling under German weapon laws, but the regulations are very mild. You have to be 18+ to own/make/shoot them and you can't attach laser sights or flashlights to them. Otherwise no...

Stu, I am just using the definition of a crossbow in German gun laws. Bows are completely unregulated here, crossbows are actually falling under the gun law. This means you can't attach a laser sight...

Very academic question really.

This isn't long distance crossbow with the halfpound (220 gram) "Gedore" bolts. It is a short distance devastator. But the lighter nail tipped bolts fly pretty far. I guess it will reach the speed...

300 lb crossbow, integrated winch, 20mm caliber

Finished this thing today... it uses two 150 lb limbs. Insanely hard to cock even with the built-in winch. Great fun with the triple edge "Gedore scraper" tipped 20mm bolts!

Belargo got it right. To make things worse impact drivers can't cope with counter force, they are designed to loosen/tighten nuts and bolts. Between the "hammer blows" there is zero torque and the...
