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.
