    I didn't know how to add text after the pictures..

    This is what can be done with a pressure washer, an old paintball gun, and some plumbing fittings.

    Here is a bit of a rundown. The heart of the "Bow" is a 5000 psi pressure washer gun. I added to that 20 inches of 5/16 aluminum tubing. the CO2 connection and small hose are from a paintball gun. The stock I got online, it was surplus from a Chinese SKS.

    It is fired by "Charging" the system via the small ball valve in front of the trigger. The air chamber is the small hose, and the handle of the wash gun. pulling the washer trigger releases the gas and fires the arrow.

    I can only estimate power, but it hits as hard as my 150 lb crossbow, and is very accurate with the scope. The scope mount is JB welded on the wash gun.
