very old concept.
These weapons are called Crossbows.
But the one\u00b4s I\u00b4ll show you now are modern versions of those old
The starting point is that these weapons are legal anywhere in the
whole World, do not need to use controlled materials or
substances, don\u00b4t depend on commercial ammunition nor
components, and you can build any or all of them for a fraction of
the cost of a similar so effective weapon for combat, defense,
hunting, fishing, or survival.
They are really deadly weapons, and you must think of them as
such, all the time \u2013 they are as deadly as any combat or big-game
hunting rifle in use today.
About how potent one of these modern Crossbows are, you can
reproduce an experiment I\u00b4ve done years ago, and repeated
several times along the past years.
Take a couple of ice blocks (or more ice blocks) that you can put
one in front of the other over a flat surface, covering 1,2 m.(one
meter and twenty centimeters) or 4\u2019 (four feet).
Place another group of identical ice-blocks at the side of the first
one, a foot (30 cm.) apart.
You\u00b4ll need a full-power Rifle, like the WWII military ones, or the
current sniper rifles (in such high-penetration calibers as
7.62x63mm/.30-06 Springfield, 7x57mm./7mm. Mauser,
7.92x57mm./8mm. Mauser, or 7.62x51mm NATO/.308
Winchester, using FMJ-Full Metal Jacket or better, AP-Armor
Piercing rounds), and one of the carbine-sized Crossbows
detailed below, with bolts with single-point steel-tipped heads,
also called field-heads (not broadheads, the so-called hunting-
Position yourself 15 meters (50 feet) in a good, solid bench (or be
in prone position) to be sure you\u00b4ll shoot as straight as possible.
Shot one block with the Rifle.
With a Mauser 1908 in 7.62x51mm NATO caliber, using a full-
power military-grade AP round, the bullet penetrated 57 cm.
Using the Crossbow (with a 150 lbs. steel prod) to shot the other
ice-block, the bolt penetrated 87 cm.
Shooting against soft body-armor vests, a similar wooden bolt
with an identical steel head penetrated both sides (from the front)
of a Level III-A vest (33 layers of Kevlar 29 in each side), with a
plastic bag with 20 Kg. of salted pork meat inside.
Similarly, it also penetrated cars windshields as well as the
7.62x51mm NATO rounds (much better than any 5.56x45mm
NATO or 7.62x39mm Russian AP rounds), completely penetrated
cars doors, and deflates tires faster than the 7.62x51mm NATO
rounds (in reality, almost as instantly as a 12-gauge slug does).
