274436 Stager, Scott P. <StagerS@m...> 2021‑08‑28 Re: crossbow project
Trigger/firing question:

Looks like the string (don’t know correct word :0) just hooks over the notch in
the stock.  Does that mean that the bolts do not have nocks, and that the
trigger just pushes the string up off the notch where it “slams” into the
waiting bolt?  If so, is that a bit iffy whether it might “miss” the bolt?  And
what keeps the bolt from falling off if the crossbow isn’t kept nicely

Overall it looks pretty cool and should go over great at SCA events.

Kathy and I are going to a local SCA archery practice on Sunday,
so I get to try shooting this thing. I will definitely get some photos
of that!
