I have found a view good pictures of crossbow from Ulrich V.
It is a really unique crossbow, because it is much more decorated than the usual ones of the 15th century. Im also very much astonished that there are cristian and jewish doxologies on it . What meaning could it have?

There are even more peculiarities!
I have never seen a crossbow with such a short bow compared to the draw length. And I dont know any other crossbow with a composite prod, which has a reinforced nut! Having examined the pictures, Im almost certain that the stock was made of yew wood!
