Automatic Crossbow by mrhd Automatic Crossbow by mrhd
Hello. This thing might actually work out. Mechanic in the back pulls the bowstring with the slide, the slide pulls an arrow out of the magazine, shoot...simple and fast reload system.

What a beauty!  Outstanding work.  Will it be available for Poser or DAZ Studio?

Everyone who wishes to survive the zombie apocalypse needs this!



Technically, I really do not think any mechanism in the stock is going to pull the cord back.
I have a crossbow with a kickstand because the draw is pretty high.


But I like the idea!

i forgot how to link stuff but you can find a homemade semi automatic crossbow on you tube.

Yes, there are a few and they all lack power.
There are at least 8 different designs for personal units.
They all lack power and range.
The super old school Chinese one is really cool, but it relies on multiple people and large volleys, not power, range, and accuracy.


The only functional piece was the large siege engine type they built on Mythbusters.


The best crossbows have draws that are too far beyond the ability of compact mechanisms to set.
That's why they have stirrups, because you need to stand on them to pull the cord.

o.k. automatic crossbow is not a sexy name. arachnid sounds like something with spiders but would have been cooler...
