Fully automatic electric crossbow

Unread postAuthor: starman » Sat Dec 12, 2009 1:24 am

I ran up on this today and thought I would share it with you guys. I like his "compound bow" although I'm not sure how much compounding it's really offering....just compact force redirection.

Doesn't this guy look just like someone who would build an electric crossbow?

Haha, pretty sweet, now who takes care of the pneumatic version?

If you look at it closely the mechanism doesn't seem too complex, I am sure a pneumatic system could be built for the same effect.

I don't see how reload works, but thats because I don't acctually SEE it. Nice find Mr.Mod.

Bottom feed spring loaded clip, stepper motor, cam switch's and a good battery. Nicely done. I want to know what he's building behind him. See the little wheel mounted on the board?

Essentially with a powerful AEG and a pistol crossbow you could clobber one together ;)

I think I'd have just made a semi-auto one instead that reloads between shots and fires on trigger press. Much more useful in my opinion.

So that's what we will all look like in a few decades...


I like the bow, especially the loading mechanism.
It doesn't look very powerful though. For some real destruction you could look at a slingshot from joerg, and combine that with an AEG.

That guy looks like a role playing game character with his special bow. He could be like a wizzard man with his special weapons.
