The part of the crossbow that stores the energy required to fire the bolt at the target, when drawn and cocked into the firing position. Limbs can be recurve or compound in design.
The wheel like attachments to the limb tips on compound crossbows which provide a mechanical advantage in the final draw weight and arrow speed.
The top part of the stock where the bolt is placed.
Located at the rear of the deck, it is used to hold the bolt on the deck.
The D-shaped attachment at the front of the crossbow which is used to support the bow with your foot during the cocking process.
