I am interested in using the same red dot sight. Are you using a 2” riser mount like used for an AR to raise the sight? Would it be too low to see through without the riser mount?I guess I don’t have to. But I built an extension for my mini stock, so for me, that’s about normal for someone else. I tried it there and it was fine. I may try moving it forward.
High taxidermy and processor bills or lots of time spent doing all this yourself.Reading through this thread, I see that some people like the Hickory and a few do not. I am considering getting one of these, but my question is what is the downside, or reasons some do not care for it???
Downsides (or differences) compared to other crossbows is what I assume you're looking for?Reading through this thread, I see that some people like the Hickory and a few do not. I am considering getting one of these, but my question is what is the downside, or reasons some do not care for it???
A very few do not. Downside is replacing all the damaged arrows from shooting @ the same spot.Reading through this thread, I see that some people like the Hickory and a few do not. I am considering getting one of these, but my question is what is the downside, or reasons some do not care for it???
Most of the complaints I have seen from people not satisfied with it relate to accuracy. I've killed 6 deer and a hog with mine just this year and lord knows how many other critters. If you lock the riser to the stock with a nylon nut and lock washer, I have not found accuracy to be an issue. I also rarely shoot the mini unless it is killing critters, so this year it's been shot 8 times (missed a 2nd hog). I suppose it's possible that extended range sessions may result in a need to adjust/tighten something. But Jerry (owner) has videos shooting across a pond at like 150 yards. It's definitely capable of accuracy. I personally only need deer-killing accuracy out to 30 yards, so I may be more forgiving of any flaws the mini has. At this point it's possible I've killed more deer with the mini than without even if you count my .30-06.
I like those Koda bows, I checked them out. Resembles an AR-15 lower and if they came apart as easy and held zero that would be great. They're out of business? I was just messing around and able to add items to my cart online....Thanks for the reply. I have a Koda bow now with a limb issue. Not sure how serious it is. Looks like a crack to me?? I dont see any other cross bows that are simple. Not looking for anything above 300fps. Only consern with a Hickory is parts down the road. Kinda stuck with the Kota since they are out of business and no warraty.
I ordered 2 different packs of 50 grain inserts for the same reason. Every insert weighed exactly 50 grains and these ones were threaded throughI just purchased a dozen Bloodsport Punishers off Camofire. Was a deal too good to pass up. Anyways, they came fletched, full length and with 50 grain brass inserts but the inserts aren’t threaded through and I’d like to add maybe another 100 grains to them. Any suggestions? I contacted DCA and asked if their 50 grain brass inserts are threaded through and they said they are not. But others here had mentioned that they are. I already ordered the 25 grain weights from EBay and had planned on just slipping them on the back of inserts. Is it possible to run a self tapping hole threader through so I can add more weight? Or would I lose too much weight drilling it out? I know I can just buy 150 grain inserts but I’d like to have some adjustability. Or just go with Ethics system but that’s $60ish for 12. Best case scenario for me would be to run a tap through the inserts I have and add weight accordingly from the backside but I wasn’t sure if it was possible. Or if anyone knows where I can find threaded through 50 grain brass inserts in .244 ID that would be even better. Thanks, Matt
