A light sporting crossbow first developed in the late 17th century in Germany, the Schnepper employs a claplock locking system instead of the more common rolling nut lock. Additionally, the design of its cheek rest is borrow from contemporary wheel-lock firearms. More complex to manufacture than Rustung-style bows or older medieval bows, the Schnepper is truly a bow of the nobility, with jaunty pompoms decorating it - choose any colour you like!
