Unlike other miniature crossbows, builder M.N. Projects‘ palm-size weapon features an impressive upgrade to its mechanism. It has a pair of rotating cams with a spring drive mechanism, enabling more powerful and longer launches of its tiny, but dangerously sharp metal bolts.

M.N. Projects shows off a nifty little weapon he machined from aluminum. It has a set of hinged arms which are attached to springs that store up energy when the bow is drawn back. We certainly wouldn’t want to catch one of those metal-tipped arrows in an eyeball.

Joerg Sprave’s Archery Extreme

Joerg Sprave’s Archery Extreme

There’s nothing quite as joyous as the grin on Joerg Sprave’s face and his manaical laugh when he fires up one of his over-the-top homebrew weapons. In this clip, he shows off a few of his creations, a couple of commercially-available crossbows, and the real reason you came here, an insane drill-powered machine bow at 7:15.

Weapon enthusiast Joerg Sprave shows off another really cool build. Dubbed the “Sliding Legolini,” this compact bow reloads and repeats with every draw. It can fire at a rate up to 140 arrows per minute, though it only has a 4 bolt capacity. Now, Joerg needs to build a magazine for this thing.

Mini Reverse-draw Crossbow

Mini Reverse-draw Crossbow

Crossbow maker Raduka shows off a truly impressive build – a miniature version of a reverse-draw compound crossbow, capable of firing dangerous little projectiles with tremendous power. All of the parts appear to have been shrunk down from a full-size weapon, and it works just like the real deal.

DaveHax shows us how to create a tiny, but still dangerous crossbow using a plastic bottle cap, a couple of popsicle sticks and a rubber band. The ammunition? Toothpicks, Q-Tips or flaming matchsticks. Daryl Dixon approves.

Dave Hax teaches us how to craft a clever mini bow and arrow out of common household items in this tutorial. We wonder if this is the weaponry the Brotherhood without Banners would use in mini Game of Thrones.

Blade Driver Crossbow

This isn’t the first saw blade shooter we’ve seen, but Patrick Priebe’s hi-tech approach to the idea is equally, if not more impressive than our favorite unconventional weapons manufacturer’s take.

TAC 15I/TAC10I Crossbows

PSE updates its TAC 15 with the TAC 15I Tactical Assault Crossbow, which integrates the trigger, stock, and grip in the barrel; also new: the TAC 10/10I, a compact version of the TAC 15.
