Large Crossbow with English Windlass, 15th Century

This medieval crossbow comes complete with a so-called English windlass (tackle) and three bolts with wooden shaft and forged, blackened steel bodkin point.

Important notice: :

This medieval crossbow is a decoration item with limited functionality and accuracy. As this weapon reproduction has a working mechanism (it can be spanned and - though only to an extent - shot), its purchase and use are subject to age restrictions. What's more, the provided quarrels feature a sharp point. This crossbow is neither suitable for an effective shooting training nor for practical use on the reenactment battlefield, and is exclusively designed as a nice addition to a historical weapons collection, as an ornamental / display item or as a medieval accessory. In any case, it is not a toy and should be handled by adults only!
