6mm crossbow project

Miniature guns are novelty custom, unique, and sometime downright crude! Common construction materials often include pill bottles or pens. Show us your work!

Why? He added what he thought was new info (still good link) AND linked to his own cool self-made elevator.
Also, Atleast he found probably the original version (?) of a concept that's been re-done many times since as well.

Geez, BTW, it's not good to parrot either mr. maverik. :roll:

I'm about to kick up another of JSR's old(er) posts in like 2 minutes myself! :P 8)

While bringing up old topics with a simple AWSUM!!!1!!!1eleventyone!!111! is abhorrent, there's nothing wrong with valid questions. We've had this discussion before so no need to make a fuss.
What would you expect out of a 150 lb crossbow and a 24" stroke
Spring piston airguns normally have a much shorter stroke, so I would go for a relatively small diameter piston to let it accelerate quickly, the "shock heating" in such mechanisms is a factor when it comes to power.

I would also make sure the breech is choked/some sort of detent is provided in order to allow pressure buildup.

I can't give you a figure for projected power, these things tend to be a bit of a black art, but it should be comparable to a middle range "adult" air rifle.
