Added LOP on Matrix 380

Post by Normous » Sun Feb 24, 2013 4:30 pm

Since recieving my Blackout 380 I know something was missing everytime I shouldered it. I knew I needed some additional LOP. Excaliburs fit most reasonably well but those over 6' often require a bit more length in that area.
I found an unused recoil pad looking lonely in one of my many gun/archery drawers.

So today:
-10 minutes to shape and sand recoil pad on the bench sander.
-10 minutes fo block sand the rear portion of the M380 flat.
- Clean and set with fast acting Gold Tip Arrow adhesive and clamp.
-Total time with a smile was 30 minutes.

Not bad, looks pretty good. I wish that Excalibur would make their X-Tender another 1" to 2" longer and also capable of mounting the crank-a-roo to it also. With my Equinox it would be nice to be able to use a X-Tender to lengthen out the crossbow a bit but I cannot go without the crank-a-roo. Maybe some day they will hopefully.
Thanks,
Raymond

From what I just read, did you say that you can NOT use the C-2 Crank Cocking Aid if you have the Stock X-Tender on your Matrix?

That is correct. The Stock X-Tender covers the hole needed for the C2 Crank Cocking Aid.

I have to installed the much needed full one inch Stock X-Tender to my Equinox since I am over 6 feet tall, but my reach is extreme. I then take it off for my 14 year old daughter, the standard LOP fits her perfect. I just need the Rope Cocking Aid.
