Info on Bow Parts

Post by Doe Master » Mon May 23, 2016 8:41 am

After looking at a few posts lately . I feel maybe it has to be said for some of the newer members .
The trigger components are the same . When I am machining the catches and safeties presently . There is no bin for Grizzly versus Bulldog . :)
The limbs are the same . Micro limbs are micro limbs . Matrix limbs come out of the mold . Get processed then are put in a bin for whatever coating we need some of . :)

Same for risers . The micro riser on some may look different because of finishes . Now that being said . The micro gen1 is different from gen2 .
I read about people wanting to change limbs to get more or less speed .
The speed comes from the length of the mainframe .

So i wonder why people are complaining about longer pull and grittiness out of bulldog triggers?

I know my 350LE trigger feels amazing lol

Bull pups in general, haven't had great triggers because of the linkage. Some better than others. The old Remington XP-100 pistol had a linkage system but was amazingly good.

Are the ADF parts going in the same bin too??? :roll:
This one should have gone in the trash bin instead of causing problems to a customer later on.

I have aback up bow in case of whatever.
So of course there has been no problem with either ,but that's fine.
I'll keep looking things over when buying a new whatever before using it ,and tweak what needs tweakin before use.

All the grief I read about ,there must have been something wrong with one of my bows...a screw turned when new and before being removed to locktite or something...
Don't remember checking or emery clothing latches ...but imagine they were checked with everything else and crisp edges broke if any.
No sky falling scenario, but was not looking for one if something was not perfect yet either.
I found out after years of assembly work for a living ,my suppliers and myself were all human.
