Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Because of the nature of such things, I do not know how far back this reached or can one really know the origin.. But I have seen a crossbow about like it listed as and SAS/CIA Viet Nam war weapon

No markings, No way to link it back to a Government or country..

If one would like some quiet legal protection one may like one of these. It is single shot but can be reloaded faster than a little cross bow. I have one.

A nice but low power shooter , the Ranchero arrow pistol. Not bad if it was $200 :roll: :roll: :doh:
see air gun depot https://www.airgundepot.com/fx-ranchero ... istol.html

Even better a pump, air pistol arrow shooter, the Indy Arrow, 2 shots per pump. But the price is nuts.

the prices are UBER NUTS for either of those, first one reminds me of the suction cup target gun I bought when I was a kid for like 10 cents at KRESGES, that one is worth about 2 bucks.

now, here is a crossbow that is fun to build and shoot; a Chinese repeating crossbow, made this one a couple years back as a winter project. the world's first semi auto 'assault weapon" :dance: I upped the magazine capacity to 15 bolts instead of the standard 10 bolts :lol:

I used a 2x4, I had laying around. for the stock
poplar for the magazine, and feed tray. handle is from scrap wood I had laying around
3 strips of thin red oak tied like a leaf spring for the bow

this is not me or my video, it shows how it works

why? these are so simple to build for less then 20 bucks in material and plans are already out there on the internet, unless you just like throwing away 200 bucks

Just pointing out options, not condoning them or condemning them..
