    Here is the crazy German again , he was invited to a trade show by the president of Cold Steel knives . What this thread is concerned with is at the end of the video , the Swedes have come up with an air powered bow !
    Like a pump action air rifle that shoots hunting arrows , the pump is side mounted , so you can use it prone …………………the possibilities here are considerable ! , stealth defense , hunting , resistance . This vid was made 3 years ago , so that other prototype is most likely on the market by now .

    It’s cool but I would bend the tube the first day out in the woods. Something that sticks out like that is a magnet for every vine, branch and snag. It would be useless to me in an hour.

    650 fps. That’s smokin’ for an arrow. You would be hard pressed to find arrows that will hold up to that speed. I don’t think you would want it going that fast either. Even if you shot it into a soft target the arrow would be useless after one shot…..but it would be cool at least once or twice lol.

    Solid aluminum bolts. Seems like people can’t resist reinventing the past. Lol

    If you notice the backs of the arrows in the video they have had the knocks removed and the solid ends cut off. This gives the arrow a chamber to harness the energy provided by the blast of air. If you used a solid arrow a piston of some sort would have to be used to transfer the energy to the arrow. Now if they could just come up with a repeater version of the breech loading model that would be totally awesome. :)
