I know you aren't supposed to post or tell about ebay deals, but how can you miss this one? Has ANYONE else noticed the HUGE abundance of X-bows on ebay? One guy, has twenty-six of them, and they are all buy it now! And they are all NIB. I am afraid to buy one though, is this guy safe? Or a hoax. ( I am alittle nervous, I get gipped of a 450$ video card on ebay. :( )

Linky.

Yeah that is strange. I dunno, I'm doubting it's a hoax, but you can never be too careful. I was considering picking up the four x-bows bundled together, and selling them off later/super-modding them. But found with the mods I intended it would be as easy to fabricate a shell and such out of hose-clamps, PVC, bakelite, and polycarbonate moving parts. But that's for another day when I finally get my dad's garage in working order. Yes, this is an ENORMOUS undertaking, I've moved probably ~300 pounds of saw dust and scrap wood, not to mention a few heavy powertools like a planer up from the shop in our basement to a garage outside. I'm hoping we can get all of his shit together and I can start fabricating parts sometime this winter.

Hrm, that was irrelevant.

I just looked at the guys recent feeback and what not, and it all seems fine, so I got one. Hopefully I get it. :( lol I checked the shipping too, and it looks fine. One guy awhile back had a Plasma TV for 100 buy-it now, hoping no one would see the shipping-10,999$. Rofl

Now it is my turn to point my finger at all of you and laugh...................
I got one when they were priced at $25
Then NSF(I think, or was it someone else?) told the lady and she uped the price.
Sorry for the semi-useless post just wanted to feel good about myself.

<_< I don't know what to do. This is the chance I've been waiting for. I'm scared to super customize my current X-bow, becuase I'll probably brake it. Nrmally I'd go for it but 50 bucks is alot, and seeing that I just spent 40 of nerf and in the next three weeks will be spending 160-ish on video game stuff, not to mention a 400 dollar gold saxophone mouthpiece, Im a bit short on cash. Ohhhh, what to do. :( :angry:

I don't understand how anyone could feel good about screwing the NerfHaven community, when we're supposed to be helping each other obtain, and modify, and enjoy foam shooting toys.

I'm perplexed.

Besides, 50 smackers for one Nerf blaster is too much for me, I still didn't get our N-strike sets yet. Waiting for those.

Ya $50, its sweet, but including shipping its prob at least $60 each which is close to what people will pay for on the forums. I know many of us will pay tha much for one but I don't know about how much of a market there is.

In theory we could "nudge" her to lower her price. If no one buys them she'll be inclined to lower the price to get more sales.

The "High bidder: cxwq" should be sufficient warning.

But yeah, this one.

Unless you're prepared to run this up significantly over $200, don't bother trying - you'll just piss me off.

I want my NIB XBows...
Like, that 4 pack, I don't have enough crossbows yet...only like 3-5.
Actually, I think CX may be able to beat me on that monetary front. $5.65 an hour really can't beat the "opposition"
