Crossbow discussion and showcase

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Crossbow discussion and showcase

Post by CaptainDrewBoy » Tue Aug 20, 2019 6:14 am

This is where you can discuss crossbows, show off crossbow-related things you've made and talk all things bolts! :crazy:
I'll give a talking point: The ZK-100 bolt. Zombie buster or scam bolt?

Mystified as to what a ZK-100 is. Do you have a link?

Couldn't find the referenced bolt. Google doesn't know all.

But I purchased a cold steel Cheap Shot, which is 130 lbs pull. Yhen obtained a 110 lbs limb from England and a 90 lbs complete bow (all Ek archery R9 bows) from an American dealer. I'm just waiting for Jeorg to market the magazine fed version here in the states.

Me too. I have to be careful not to trip jumping on the band wagon.

The ZK-100 bolt has a bulge after the tip, with the idea that it would help damage more of a zombie's brain after the tip pierces.
Those bows sound good! And a magazine fed version of a crossbow (which I haven't heard of before) sounds really cool!

Jeorg took an R9 cross bow and made a wood magazine feed for it. Ek archery contacted him about corroborating on a production model. He has 3 videos on the slingshot channel about it.

And they are all awesome. He can cut loose with six crossbow bolts almost as fast as one can shoot a pump action shot gun. Reloading is a bear but if someone wanted or needed a non-firearm HD solution it is spot on. And the ammo is often reusable.

What do you guys think the best place to buy crossbows is?
Obviously, Amazon and Ebay are options, but what more dedicated sites do you all use?
I've heard gogun.de is good...
