My New Crossbow

Post by Timbrhuntr » Sat Nov 30, 2019 11:27 am

Saw this on a trip to a Medieval Castle in Germany . 1450 was the date ! Tried to get them to sell it to me but they said it was the only complete one left and they wouldn't be able to price it lol

The string is around a 1/2 in thick but the ratio of the bolt to the string is around the same as we have today, you can see the bolt in the Knight's hand ready for loading with a Bodkin point tip designed to separate chain mail and armor plate.
