    Hello there I have got a problem.<br>I want to built a Crossbow that shoots paintballs. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br>The problem is that the paintballs are not very solid and that I don´t even find a usable trigger. <br>Someone got an idea? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_idea.png" alt="Idea" longdesc="18">

    you could try a trigger like on Joergs folding survival cross bow, if you look closely at the mechanism the ammo never contacts any hard edges. Just an idea

    You can simply use the "Stink Master 2000" concept. A completely closed "barrel" with paracord running through slots, then a brush to keep the paintball down, and you are good to go. <br><br>

    I'm really interested in this concept i think it has great potential

    What it needs to really be great is a hopper and a pump action.

    Then if you make a bunch of them, you could give them to your buddies and have a serious paintball match
    that it's all manual, no c02 needed makes it lots of fun

    I think you should use solid pauch to shoot paintball because otherwize you can damage the ball. Also you can build it like regular crossbow, that the trigger mechanism holds the rubber and not the bolt. Hope it helped.

    what about the use of a kydex pouch as a sabot
