Looks like a no-name home project.

Looking at your project some more, it looks more like a slingshot project. Search here:

I'm pretty sure Jorg will be more helpful than we can be.

This slingshot trigger mek looks like it could be adapted.

This is the "Ballista" from the 70's.
It uses speargun rubber that was housed in two plastic tubes that were mounted on each side of the stock (missing on yours). An end of each of the two rubber lengths is attached just fwd the trigger, and the other ends to a string which runs over the pulleys.
The grip in front of the trigger pivots forward, sliding the trigger mechanism to engage the string. Lever is swung back and the "slingshot crossbow" is cocked
Interesting anomaly in the crossbow world and collectable by some
