Crossbows of the Middle Ages saved many castles from sieges. The Giant Castle Defense Crossbow is a fantastic version of those historical weapons. This exceptional reproduction is made in Italy and features beautiful engraving on the wooden base. The crossbow comes with a bolt. The crossbow can fire, just like its historical counterpart, with a pull style mechanism. This crossbow style was used for hunting and warfare throughout England during the time of Queen Elizabeth. Large crossbows were more powerful than any longbow and were heavier than the light counterparts used in the field by armor clad soldiers. Although this is a functional weapon, it is not meant for hunting or target shooting. It is advised to exercise caution when used and not intended to fire at other beings. This crossbow makes a wonderful decoration for a home office or a gift for a friend.
