    It's the ancient crossbow, re-modernized in Lego! This crossbow features a simple, but very efficient and effective mechanism. It has only around 700 pieces, but as you can see, it is truly life size. Here are the dimensions-
    Length-56cm
    Width(Of bow)-39cm
    Height(From handle)-21cm
    Weight-450g (1lb)
    The crossbow shoots 5-hole technic beams(shown in red in the firing position and grey in the ammo boxes). Perhaps it would be better to have a soft-ended brick produced for safety reasons, it is so powerful! Here is the complete image of the crossbow.

    ----------------------------------Q and A's-----------------------------------
    QUESTION- Isn't this very dangerous?
    ANSWER- Despite its ability to shoot almost 60 feet, the low weight of the projectile means it does not have much damaging power. Even a shot from point-blank range will only sting a little bit.

    QUESTION- How does this mechanism work?
    ANSWER- pulling the trigger down turns a gear which pulls down an axle. As the axle is pulled down it releases the red bullet.

    QUESTION- Another part of the danger factor is this crossbow's reliability. Does this weapon always function without a hitch?
    ANSWER- Yes! Because of it's simple mechanism, I have never experienced any kind of malfunction or misfire.

    I eagerly await your votes, appreciations, and criticisms.
