Very good product... Breaks after 40 shots
Excellent design, wonderful accuracy. Lightweight, fun to shot. However, after 40 or so shots the spring-loaded latch (detail, that needs to be depressed before cocking to release the charging arm, and that latches onto the receiver and holds charging arm with a stock attached in-line after the crossbow is cocked) - brocked. Numerous attempts to fix it failed (I'm a bit of a gunsmith myself, building and fixing rifles). The reason? - this particular detail is made of plastic, and it , most definitely, should be made of aluminium, or, at least, composite. The crossbow is still shootable, but the shooter should hold the stock and charging arm with his hand on the handle - otherwise, it's loose. Quite a bit of frustration. Another frustration - I'm unable to locate M48 website, much less their customer service , to ask for replacement part. Any advice?
