Crossbow Basics.

Steve Cover:
I haven't been to this site for a couple of years....

I had to do some digging for the specs on my original Panzer....
My prod is 150 LB but I believe that lighter weight prods were also available.
It was popular because it had a slightly longer draw length than the other Barnett crossbows of the day...
Commando = 7.5"
Panzer       = 8.75"
Barnett bolts of that time were 14.5" ...
I made bolts as short as 8" and as long as 18" with varying degrees of performance...
As I stated in my earlier (years ago) original thread, I also added a Barnett foot stirrup for easier cocking...
If you can find or fabricate one I encourage you to so...

I hope this helps

Steve
