Any further updates on this thing? Like how many people are planning to go? I'm considering coming up with a friend.

Wow, okay...let me be the first to say this surprisingly. Why the fuck would you make your gun heavier? That's the opposite of the right thing to do.

Well, in my absence from nerf I airsofted frequently(and also have been hitting the gym extremely hard). Upon going through my nerf guns I was stunned at how much the crossbow didn't weigh. And even now the gun still weighs a mere three pounds.

I prefer the gun the way it is now, and I even have two other crossbows that do not have clay in them. To me the gun just feels right. But maybe all this is just stemming from my airsoft side wanting a more "gun like" feel.

Holy shit dude, I haven't seen you around here in months. Merry Christmas.

yeah man it's good to be back. Although, I miss the old NH. I'll get on AIM sometime and we can chat.

I dunno man. Wait until a hot summers day. Clay melts like candle wax and smells fucking disgusting.

I don't know where you live, but the clay melts at 65 degrees celsius.

A bit weird, but whatever works for you. I would think the clay would shift a bit during long periods of being in one position since it doesn't harden, which might screw up your internals.

The clay is very firm despite being 'non-hardening". And with the way the X-bow is designed, no sections of clay are near the key internal components. each clay area is sectioned off by plastic.

Well, I understand your choice in clay for possible removal... but I really think there are other options.

I'd keep the foam and use those pinewood derby weights for sandwiching between layers of foam.

Well with clay, instead of foam, the rifle is actually solid. There is no give when the gun is squeezed together, unlike with foam. However, if I was captainslug I would simply inject plastic to make the gun completely solid.

Nice job, bro. It seems like a bitch to get out, but I'll definitely try this on my LnL. It seems to me that with the solid body of the clay resting behind the plastic directly, it may reduce the likelihood of stress-fractures, maybe.

The clay is very weird. It's almost not sticky at all and, though I haven't tried, shouldn't be too hard to remove if needed.
