Hey everyone! I've been getting a lot of questions about crossbows lately as well as requests to do a new crossbow video. This is one of my favorite styles of crossbow to make as it has a very simple trigger, called a pin or Skane lock. Like my last crossbow video, this is a nice light crossbow at 100 pounds, great for having fun and shooting at targets.
I've been working on crossbows lately, so if you want to see a build-along of a similar crossbow with the same features, let me know in the comments! Also let me know if I should do a build along of a pistol crossbow as well.
This bow is a 45-55 pound recurve bow made from 1 inch schedule 40 PVC pipe. It makes use of side to side bends which give it snake-like appearance. These bends allow it to be a center shot or near center bow, making it more consistent with a range of arrow spines.
