Discover the world of crossbows, this weapon perfected over centuries, powerful and silent, loved by survivalists...

The design of the crossbow has existed for thousands of years. It is generally accepted that the first crossbows appeared in ancient China around the 5th century BC.


The original crossbow consisted of a crossbow fixed crosswise to a wooden stock. Projectiles are called bolt and are shorter than traditional arrows, although their length may vary. Over the centuries, the crossbow was made of wood, iron or steel. It was mainly used in wars and for hunting.


Today, crossbows have acquired a new relevance for game hunting, target shooting, sports shooting and competition. Thus, manufacturers have increased their offer by developing more and more sophisticated and powerful products, especially with materials such as fibreglass.


Although the two main types of crossbows are the recurve and the compound crossbow, there are hundreds of categories of crossbows such as:

  • - the tactical crossbow
  • - the semi-automatic crossbow
  • - the crossbow rifle
  • - the heavy crossbow
  • - the mini crossbow
  • - the hunting crossbow

So how do you know which one is best for you? When making your choice, it is important to first ask yourself what you intend to do with it.


Whether you're a hunter, collector, competitive shooter or just a hobbyist, you all have different expectations about your favourite throwing gun.
