This crossbow is typical of many medieval 15thC munition quality war crossbows so it is plain and rather blocky. Bow irons came in around 1400 though lashing was also still used, and this crossbow is made with irons but a lashed version is also available.
The medieval crossbow can be supplied from 170lbs to 500lbs and dependent on draw weight, can be spanned by hand, belt, doubler belt or goats foot lever.
