the only really tricky part of a crossbow is te prod,(bow) if you want something that will do some damage, thenthe best simplest thing is an auto leaf spring from the junk yard. get a grinder, file, whatever and start removing everything that isnt a bow. fair warning though this steel is tough, and this is a lot of work. when yu get your prod finished you can use a steel cable with loops swaged in the ends for the string fo max power string it the opposite of the bend the leaf spring already has. mine draws 185# at 12 inches. the rest is really very easy. go to any SCA website and you should be able to find plans for the stock and trigger assembly. if not i will be happy to explain those to!
