AR15 Crossbow


The arrows used in these products are #2512 and 16” in length. Using 75 grain target points the total arrow weight is 305 grains. They feature a hollow aluminum shaft, with the back of each shaft left open, immediately behind the fletching for installation to the barrel.

The barrel used in these AIRROW rifles consists of two barrels: an outer barrel (shroud) with an outside diameter of .920” and a second floating inner barrel. The inner barrel fits inside the hollow shaft of the 2512 arrow. The fletching must roll over to fit inside the outer barrel (shroud) and the shooter is advised to use a rotating clock-wise motion as he first fits the arrow to the inner barrel and then pushes it down inside the outer barrel (shroud).

The Airrow blanks used in these rifles are available in two different power levels and each power level has its own color code for easy identification. Power Level 5 is colored Red and demonstrates a nominal muzzle velocity of 335 fps with the 2512 arrow, while Power Level 6 is color coded Purple and has an approximate muzzle velocity of 435 fps with the same arrow. The resulting muzzle energies are 76 and 128 foot pounds respectively.



I saw that on another forum I frequent (Corvetteforum) and I just thought I HAD to share this with arfcom.

I'm guessing it might be on the quite side.

I wonder how accurate it is.

Accuracy and Silence are my questions.

Looks kind of neat but ,IMHO, the pricing is too much for what it is.  I'd rather get a real highend for a lot less...

Crossbows are cool. A barbarian told me so.

Does anyone remember a handgun-shaped dart gun that was designed around WW2 for silent killing?

I wouldn't mind one set up for a 77/22. With the barrel, arrows, and blanks should run about 500 to get rolling.

The more I think about it, the more I don't like the idea.  Mixing an Evil Gun look with arrows...repercussions:

More regulation on bows, especially cross bows
Some asshat misuses an AR looking bow adds more fuel to the anti-black rifle fire.

Keep bows and arrows, and guns separate.

Probably very popular with poachers during bow season.

It's got no handguards.  What if the barrel gets too hot??

they make a 10-22 in a similar fashion as well
