Do you do anything to reinforce the shell where the screws go through? Otherwise I would think that the screws that the spring sits against would just widen the holes in the shell they go through over time.


You go through both sides of the shell... and you use big screws. The best idea would be to use nuts on the other side of the screws. However, I never used nuts, and my crossbow has been modded for years now and there are no signs of wear.

Looks like that $40 price tag's gotta come down a bit. Sorry, but the market still isn't that big enough for all 14 at that store and all the other auctions combined. Its been stuck on 14 available foreever it seems.

The spot you want to drill through is right where the spring from the plunger sits against the casing. When you cock the gun, the spring is compressed between the plunger and the area I am talking about. It is two plastic posts that the plunger goes through the middle of. I strongly reccomend pre-drilling the holes before you fully assemble the gun so that you don't have to worry about hitting the insides. It is an extremily simple mod. Rather than spending your time cutting out sheet metal and such, this mod should take about one minute of your time.

$38.99 per gun is still too expensive, ebay aficionado's, I'd try more like $25 per gun prices, you'd probably finish them off a lot quicker before the other 100-1000 crossbows hit the market.
