3D model description


***COLLAPSIBLE STOCK available as separate addon download here: *

BARABA is a collection of 3D parts to convert your regular 20mm aluminum profile extrusion to a 6 shooter repeating crossbow pistol.
About 35euros budget.
12euros for the bow and string, 5 euros for the bolts and nuts and about 600grams of filament.
Springs were made with "spring factory" printed spring maker scaled to 70%
Not sure about aluminum profile price,
The parts are designed around the extrusion and use it as a solid core and to slide the parts along the grooves making it more stabile and durable.
The lever and magazine mechanics are inspired by Slingshot Chanel videos

Basic tools are needed and the hardest part is drilling some 3mm holes and one 8mm hole in aluminum.
Some machine bolts and nuts are needed, some small springs and COBRA system bolt ( or equivalent).
It also has an adapter to make it in to a slingbow for those who preferer it or can not find a bow in their area.

Added mods for 90lbs bow by
Added - modifications to original design made by Muf83 . Most of the parts are redesigned to include metal core for rigidity. Also, both upper and lower trigger mechanism is redesigned to handle stronger bow limb. This mod is not for novice printers but for more skilled maker since it includes producing some metal parts.
