Crossbows are alot older than you think!

Crossbows have been around for thousands of years, in fact they were used European warfare more widely after the Normans defeated the English in the Battle of Hastings in 1066, but i bet most of you didn't realize the Chinese invented the crossbow around the 5th century BC, fifteen centuries earlier.

China is also credited with inventing the repeating crossbow, capable of firing 10 bolts in 15 seconds at around 200 CE.

Modern rifle crossbows have certainly come on a very long way since then, they are now made of lightweight strong materials such as carbon fiber, far more accurate and lighter too.

Choices these days are between the more traditional recurve crossbow or the modern tactical compound crossbow which is more powerful but light and accurate also for the more experienced archery user.
