Medieval Style Crossbow shoots balls, is rubber powered
I have made many slingshot crossbows, but all have been long and narrow - more like a modern rifle.
But this time I wanted to make a slingshot crossbow that resembles a medieval style model! Of course with rubber instead of a steel prod, and shooting balls instead of bolts. But regarding the look and lock/trigger mechanics, I wanted to follow the ancient design.
It came out very good!
Here is the video:
It shoots great, and as you can see in the slomos, the bands never touch anything - they will last a long time.
The weapon is really accurate.
