Im not very experienced with homemade's or xbows/tornado bows, However couldnt you just cut down a longshot and add a stock attachment then someone can 3d print a crossbow foregrip and stock witch can then be attached (the grip with epoxy or something similar).
In other words, make a Long shot resemble an Xbow?
If I went with this approach, these are my suggestions:
1: The foregrip would have two halves that screwed together over the [I don't know wtf] under the bipod.
2: The stock would also be in two parts. These would be glued to the back of the Longshot where the current stock is.
3: Something similar to the Crossbow's original barrel would need to be glued up top, where the back of the carry handle attaches.
4: E-putty and/or Bondi would probably be used to smooth the joint up.
Of course, the Longshot's internals wouldn't be left stock. At the very least, upgrade the mainspring.
I'm visualizing something even more extreme: OMW reinforced internals, a 10kg spring, brass breech and barrel, and a paint-job reminiscent of the Micro-caliber Tech Target Eliminator.
This wouldn't really be a Crossbow replica, but it would be a salute to the NIC's founding blaster.
