    Okay, I finished this crossbow yesterday evening and tested it out today, like ten minutes ago. It may look like a piece of crap, but it works real good! I guess Ill have to make it look a little nicer... Some rasp/file/sanding work, and maybe a paintjob. I havent tested it outside, at long distance yet, but I think its going to be great <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/img_2110.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/img_2111.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/img_2112.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>I think the only thing Im satistified with on this crossbow is the handle, wich I think is pretty nice.<br><br>Here you see it in comparison to the Bullpup Pulley Crossbow. With the stirrup included, the arrow-shooter is only three centimetres longer than the Pulley Bullpup <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> But of course the Bullpup also has a longer draw-length because of the pulleys.<br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/img_2113.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Hope you like it! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>//Alfred

    I'm with linux, you can still work on the look when it works.<br><br>Think a quiver attached to it would be great.

    It looks just fine. At least you're actually making these things. I keep telling myself I'm going to make one, but then I get lazy and it never gets done. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cry.gif" alt="Crying or Very sad" longdesc="11"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> Keep building, dude. You do good work. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">
     
  15. Very well done, I love those bullpup style shooters.

    Thanks guys <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br>and Robbo, I think I might have some so-called blueprints lying around somewhere. Ill post´em if I find any. These are only the handle/trigger, the holder for the toothbrush-head and the fork bp:s, the stock is just a flat piece of wood with two "rail-pieces" on the sides.<br>But I cant guarantee Ill find them. My "archive" is quite the mess, actually...
