Tactical Assault Crossbow

Yes, there is a Tactical Assault Crossbow. It’s for those times a can and subsonic ammunition just aren’t quiet enough and there aren’t any RPGs with bayonets anywhere nearby.

The Tactical Assault Crossbow is a modern arbalest upper that fits to an AR  15 platform lower. Watch the intro.

Kit Up! The Tactical Assault Crossbow...a crossbow upper on an AR15 lower.

One model delivers up to 145 foot pounds of energy with a bolt (arrow/quarrel) traveling up to 402 fps.

Say what you like, it might be kind of fun. You know damn well Daryl Dixon wants one.

Information on the various models is available on their website.

  1. Range?
    How is it cocked?

  2. Costs 1300$….. I can build an BCM rifle, an EOTech, and 1000 rounds of cheap ammo for that price

  3. Why's this better than one that Uncle Ted would shill for?

  4. 50 ft…..I can take you out with a baseball size rock at 50 ft…..cost zero and can be used again.

    The effective range would be about the same as it is for almost any crossbow, about 30 yards(90 feet) with a novice shooter, to more than 40-50(120-150 feet) yards with a seasoned shooter. It is really cool, and has a ton of bells and whistles that can be hung on it like a real M4, but the marketing is unclear. According to the nice color brochures, it's a serious hunting weapon, but looks like you need to be wearing a SWAT uniform to use it properly.

  6. The term "The whole nine yards" comes from the Long Bowman's Test on putting nine arrows in the air before the first one hit the ground. I have a Crossbow, Compound, and a Recurve,…Shame on your butt if there is more than one target with that cocking set up…. Not to mention that arrows do their work by bleeding the target out which may not be all that quick.

  7. Well, I'm really glad it's a tactical assault crossbow. If it where a strategic assault crossbow it would shoot Davy Crocketts as bolts!

    I'm sure jack churchill would be rolling in his grave… from the bo ner this just gave him http://badassoftheweek.com/churchill.html

  9. Daryl would like this.

  10. "whole nine yards" came from WWII bomber machine gunners, not B-52 crewmen. It just happens that they used the same guns in the tail of the B-52.

  11. I hunt with crossbows and I don't have to pay over $1,000 for them . For $3-500 you can get a fine bow-this sounds like the $400 hammer-more overtpriced contractor ****.

  12. It is cheaper to build a custom AR15, EOTECH, and 1000 rounds. It may be cool to own one just to say you have one. Not worth the $1300.

  13. The onliest thing with that Kilt theory though is they come in all sizes. So some would not use 9 yards and some maybe more.

  14. A good slingshot would be just as effective in the right hands and no cranking.

  15. 1300 seems ridiculous but they will probably sell thousands of them.

  16. The AR Platform does nothing but add bulk and weight and cost. Crossbows can be very effective and have been around forever. Why add all the above (except for the cool factor) to an already proven weapon. Would still like to play with it tho.

  17. Most Great Kilts are only 6 or 8 yards of Fabric, So that would Not be it.

  18. While the Delivery in the Movie The Wild Geese is Flawed with a Cyanide tube on the Bolt, a Divot on either side of a razor point dipped in cyanide, or something similar, might expedite the killing process.

    During Linebacker II the BUFFS shot down two MIGS with those quad .50s.

    "The AR Platform does nothing but add bulk and weight and cost…"
    Well, yeah, but I was surprised they didn't go the whole 9 on THAT part of the concept and make it an over-under-middle with the whole AR and a grenade launcher and infra-red spotlight for the next Batman movie.

  21. The whole 9 yards is a .50 M2 belt in a B-17 (not a B-52)
