Alchem Inc Reproduction Crossbow
314 East 195th St.
Euclid, Ohio 44119

The above is a photo of our standard crossbow. This design is based on an original in the collection of the Schweizerisches Landesmuseum (National Museum Of Switzerland), Zurich. It dates from the 14th century. Bows of this type were still being used in Scandinavian countries in the 19th century to hunt sea mammals. Our reproduction utilizes the same simple, reliable, and fool resistant push up release mechanism. The wooden stock and lever are unstained oak, while the prod, stirrup, bow irons, and bolt stop are heat blued steel. It has an overall draw distance of 13 1/2 inches from a 4 1/2 inch string brace at rest, giving a string travel of 9 inches. This crossbow is available in draw weights of from 60 pounds up to 120 pounds and comes with two modern Dacron B50 strings for reliability. Unlike the original, our design incorporates a 1/2 inch deep bolt groove and can shoot 120 degree angled three fletched bolts in addition to the 180 degree two fletched projectiles. It also features a steel prod for ruggedness. Best results will be obtained with 11/32 inch diameter shafts and heavy points. For hunting deer and other large game, we recommend a draw weight of 130 pounds or higher. Check with your local hunting regulations since some areas have minimum draw weight requirements. When ordering, allow up to 4 weeks for assembly, testing, boxing, and shipping.
