    I’m a huge fan of the AR-15 platform. Good ergonomics, modularity, and accuracy are only a few of the traits that make the weapon a winner in my book. Throw into the mix some match-grade components, and you have a true masterpiece. I’m also a big fan of bows, crossbows and other medieval weapons. In the right hands, these can still be weapons of deadly precision. What do the two have to do with each other? I had thought nothing until I read the May 10, 2009 issue of Shotgun News and saw a full-page advertisement for, you guessed it, a crossbow upper for your AR-10. WTF???

    The real question is... how much is ammo for that thing and where is the barrel shroud and bayonet lug?? :D :bluelaugh:

    Seriously though, $1,299 for THAT?? :rofl1:

    :deadhorse: It is a cool accessary...but come on guys...this is the third thread in as many weeks about the same thing. It is a little spendy...but the web site claims same hole accuracy at 40 yards. Check out the vid on u-tube under Tac-15. my .02 cents again......................thanx

    Actually, Mike that is the ONLY AR accessory I've seen that even HAS a point.... or at least holds something that DOES have a point.....

    A crossbow? This is ABSOLUTELY necessary! How else are you going to kill vampires? Huh? You think crummy little bullets will stop the undead?? You fools!
