FOR SALE: Crossbow - Screw and Handle Loading - C.14 C.15

Postby Aginoth » Sat Aug 24, 2019 4:20 pm

Unusual Medieval Replica Crossbow for reenactment.

Bought around 10 years ago from Albion Arbalest, Crossbow number 410 marked on Nutt. This is one of only two crossbows of this design that they made.

Unusual Screw and Handle loading arrangement, dating from Late 14th to Mid/Late 15th Century; as found in Froissart's Chronicles (The Siege of Madhia 1390) and the 1472 edition of Vultarius. Images of this provenance are attached.

This style of this crossbow is also referenced in "The Crossbow" by Sir Ralph Payne-Gallway ISBN 9781873674079 (Pages 81 and 82)

Not used for a couple of years as I had to give up active reenactment due to Arthritis. Working, string body and metalwork all in good condition.

I am told it pulls at about 100 to 120lb.

Price: Hoping for £250 but all offers will be considered.
