Joerg Sprave Builds Fully Automatic Crossbow

January 17, 2017


This is a video of backyard survivalist Joerg Sprave demonstrating the fully automatic crossbow he built using wood, giant rubber bands, and a cordless drill. It works unsurprisingly well, because Joerg's weapons almost always work flawlessly, despite their complication. This guy should work for NASA or Home Depot. Obviously, I'm gonna need him in my crew if I expect to survive the zombie apocalypse. Now -- and I'm just throwing this out there, but I think wearing me on his back like a backpack is probably best.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Matt D, who agrees being able to make your own weapons is going to be key once all the guns and ammo shops have been looted following the appearance of the first zombies.

    [The repeating crossbow]s invention is commonly attributed to Zhuge Liang (181–234 AD)

    There was a tv show called Weapon Masters that made a modernized version of the repeating crossbow.That was 2008 or so when that show was on.

    He reminds me of one of my favorite cartoon characters, Santa Claus from Rise of the Guardians, such a great laugh, kind voice - but in the end he'll f*&k you up so you'd better watch out.

    Also, I wonder what the entire tech team from Airsoft company thinks about the fly wheel component he made w/out knowing at first that is what they made -- only they charged mega bucks and had a jillion meetings for God knows how long to think about it and he designed it in his back mountain tool shed.
