Ive been thinking of building one myself too, but its pretty much at the lowest point of my list of stuff i want to build.

I intended to essentially fake the bow action. Basically the bow string would move the bolt.
Using a Trracer as a base, cocking the bow, would cock the marker and load a ball into the breach, but would not bring the ball into the barrel. Release of the bow string would do that, as well as releasing the hammer.

If you prefer to keep it real, then id think using a non stretchy string with a bow made out of 7075 aluminum, should give you enough (if not too much) force to launch a ball through a barrel.

Maybe not quite what you are thinking, but I believe this may be a good alternate direction.
