    Hello, my name is Damian and I'm new in this forum. I really liked the medievel crossbow Jorg made and I decided to make one but i want to shoot rocks with it or maybe hex nuts because in my town I couldn't find steel or lead balls. I would like to ask what the trigger mechanism should be cus I don't think the nut mechanism would work. Please give me some ideas :).
     
  2. Hello and welcome!

    Why don't you bye the Steel or Lead Balls over InterNet!

    Rocks are very bad and dangerous ammo for your Projekt!

    I wouldn't use rocks or hex-nuts on this design, there is a high chance that the edge bites in to your trigger mechanism and this will result in dangerous situations.

    Steel and lead balls can be found on the internet easily, and will be much safer to shoot

    Yes you are right but the biggest ones I could find were 8mm. I guess marbles will do a good job.I found this site http://www.melchiormenzel.de/info_ammo.html if you are interested.Thank you for the fast reply.

    You can use marbles as well. Cheap. Easy to find. Kids toy!
