Re: About calling them bolts or arrows

So if bolts arent for crossbows any more, do we still call them crossbows? If they use arrows like a bow then why not change the name to "horizontally stock affixed short bow?"

Re: Excalibur Matrix 330

Not being able to see the pictures i am stabbing in the dark that there is possibly a burr on your trigger arm (whatever holds the string) that is cutting in to your serving? See if you can get your pinky finger in there to feel for sharp edges. Or use a q-tip and see if it gets caught/torn on the m...

Re: Whats Wrong ? ( sighting in )

Did you add anything to it like REDS? Or anything else that made you alter the brace height? Just wondering if the string is having to stretch itself again if anything changed. I got a DVD in my kit. But my scope had a dent in the windage cap and my arrow retention spring was jammed way down. (Im as...

Re: Finally answers for the Matrix 350 LE Mossy

Just wanted to say thank you to Excalibur for sending me a new bolt retention spring! The one that came on my 350LE from al flahertys was extremely tight against my rail. Not only was it down there, it seemed like half of the spring was touching. So the vanes of the arrow were smashed when loading t...

Re: crossbow choice or necessity ?

Choice here. Own several rifles and shotguns for various game in various areas (certain spots close to me are shotgun only so no rifles allowed for deer during gun season there). But i decided that for the price of my out of province deer tag i want to have more than 2 weeks a year to get a crack at...

Re: Air Brakes Installation problems!

Same thing happened on my 350le. Stirrup bolts came out after some careful torquing and was able to take off the limbs giving enough room to fit vise grips on the remaining 2 stripped heads. Seems like the new bolts included with the air brakes have just as shallow of a head as the previous bolts. H...

Diablo Shaft Outer Diameter For Zwickey Scorpio

Hi all, I am looking at getting a set of Zwickey Scorpios and all their sizes are in standard measurements. The measurements i have seen listed for the Diablos are .343 and .344 of an inch. That to me looks like 22/64 would be a tight fit if the shaft is truly .343 but wouldnt fit if it is .344. So ...
