Cold Steel has a freaking CROSSBOW!
« on: January 22, 2019, 07:04:46 PM »
I just got an email update from CS and they are now selling what they call a Cheap Shot Crossbow:

https://www.coldsteel.com/cheap-shot-130-cross-bow.html

At an MSRP of $279, and includes a red dot site, picatinny rails, an adjustable stock and other goodies that are usually add ons for other crossbows I can totally see one of these in my future!

Quote
QUICK, EASY RELOADING! It doesn’t matter if you are standing, kneeling, sitting or laying on the ground, the Cheap Shot 130 is lightning quick to load. You see, there is no stirrup, rope, or crank cocker needed to get the Cheap Shot 130 into action. What really sets the Cheap Shot 130 apart from all the competition isn’t its telescoping AR style butt stock, Picatinny rail, detachable fore grip, red dot sight, or even its cool OD green color scheme. What really sets it apart is its phenomenal ability to shoot into 3 inches at 30 yards in literally A FEW SECONDS! Just grab the cocking lever and GO! 130lb Draw Weight 226 Feet Per Second AR Stock fits Commercial Buffer Tubes (1.17") • Six 15” Carbon Bolts • String Wax • Shoulder Sling • AR Stock with Buffer Tube • Single Position Red Dot Sight • Fore grip • Secondary Detachable Fore grip • Two Lens Cleaning Sheets • Allen Wrench

Count me in...   :drool:

That looks quite good actually.

Being a Cold Steel product it should be decent enough quality too.  I expect Lynn to be showing it off soon :)

Cold Steel doesn't go to SHOT anymore because of a difference with their placement on the show floor, so you won't see this on anyone's SHOT coverage.  I figured it was up to me to get the word out!  :D

Agreed that it should be quite decent.  I am personally looking forward to trying one out, and not just because I like Cold Steel products.  I actually really like that a knife company is really branching out rather than making the same knife over and over again with different colored handles or fancier steels.

Not much explanation of the cocking mechanism, but around 11:15 you see him grabbing the arm below the handle a bunch of times, so I imagine that is the cocking lever.  Just pull it down and it levers the string back.  Great idea, and reminiscent of a Brazilian crossbow I have been trying to get a hold of for years, which uses the stock as a lever.

i was always concerned about the body length being legal to import into Canada.  This one looks like it should qualify, even without the stock.

That looks like a ton of fun! Nevermind the guy with the pornshache chopping a lemon in half in midair.

Just how many animals did he kill in that video? No wonder he's a rather big chap, he ain't lacking for meat....  :rofl:
