Crossbow Project!

I wanted to make a custom marker with the free time during my summer. I was going to make a bolt action rifle but I decided making a crossbow would be so bad-a$$! I did some research and haven't found any yet to be build. I would want to actually want to use a large rubber band or something to launch the paintballs through a barrel like with a breach and the end so they can be hand loaded. Anyone know what kind of "rubber band" or launching device I can use! ALL INPUT NEEDED! Thanks in advance.

Look up "stone throwing bows" and see how they did it back in the 1600-1800's

Have you ever thought about adapting an airow gun to a crossbow? It's a little different than you have described but would be an interesting project for sure.

I don't think most crossbows have the length of draw needed for an airow gun to get full stroke.

I've seen one crossbow build before but it was an Ion with a crossbow build around it, it didn't actually function like a crossbow. I'm not sure if you could actually get any kind of useful velocity with any kind of rubber band, at least not without making the draw SUPER long...

Read that russc but I felt it didn't help me out. I know for a fact that using an ion, or using the air-bow thing is now for me!

if you are going to do the air bow thing, I suggest making one of your own design. The actual Airow gun is badly designed IMO.
