How to Build a Wooden Crossbow Popular Mechanics Plans

These Popular Mechanics plans are for a wooden crossbow.

This repeating crossbow has all the handling characteristics of a fine repeating rifle of the slide-action type. In the hands of an experienced crossbowman it will deliver five shots in five seconds with near-rifle accuracy over ranges up to 40 yards.

The steel-pointed arrows, or quarrels, as they are correctly called, are loaded from the top into a magazine just as are the cartridges in a bolt-action rifle. After loading, the bow is cocked by a slide, and the quarrel is fired by pressing a trigger which releases the bowstring.

Special thanks to our contributors - we now have the full plans.
