Medieval Swiss

Medieval Swiss


This medieval crossbow features a tiller design common throughout central Europe and Scandinavia.  The rotating nut lock is released with a traditional medieval single-axle lever trigger, sometimes referred to as a "tickler".  The steel stirrup - a typical rounded style - provides a solid anchor point to step into while spanning the bow.
