    While sighting the scope, I did a thing:( 20190404_111932.jpg
    A very stupid thing :( 20190404_113001.jpg

    Put me in a Pinto and back me into a wall! :mad:
    While sighting the scope with the laser I cocked the bow to get the string out of the way to lay my New arrow laser onto the rail. For some reason I manually locked out the ADF.
    Got interrupted by a phone call and when I came back to finish fiddling with it, removing my New sighter and thought ... Oh yeah! I can de-cock using the ADF and pulled the trigger
    ... forgetting of course that I switched it off ... FiretrUCK !!! :mad:

    Lol ...
    Thankyou, I humbly accept this less than honourable position as president, and as my first official act
    I must clarify something ...
    It's my understanding that the information "Middleton limbs, you can even dryfire them no problem "
    is floating around out there ...
    These rumours are not true! and I have plenty of proof .
    On behalf of the current administration ...
    thankyou and goodnight
    ;)

    Nice thing about the Middleton ...
    if you got the right parts, limb jobs can be done without de-stringin ;) 20190404_230020.jpg just swap out the whole frontend.
    Almost choked tho! While I was tinkering I noticed to my horror what I thought were cracks in the tips 20190404_232524.jpg pretty sure they are mould marks 20190404_232626.jpg and the shadows are trying to screw with my mind ...
    Like the "Barstool Prophets" sing about ... Paranoia may destroy ya!
    ;)

    Wouldn't be so bad if you could still get limbs.:rolleyes: The full length (36") limbs used to be pretty fool proof, especially on something as mild as a 330. With Derrick's limbs, it all comes down to when he made them. At times, he was cutting corners and rushing stuff out. If you look at the edges of the limbs, are they nice and straight, or wavy as heck? I have no more full length limbs, so I can't help you out. Another guy on C/N did the same, and tried to get Excal Exo limbs, which used to be easy to do. Apparently, Excal now requires you to send the old, damaged limbs to them before you can get replacements. SA Sports sells limbs for their Crusader recurve (225# @ 13.5"). They are under $100 US. The cracks at your limb tips look like cracks in the dip. The limb tips are pinned on.

    Thanx jacol for the input. The edges of both sets seem pretty straight and smooth. The break is pretty clean and straight. I'm Thinking about trying some adhesive and a bolster of some sort. I see some experimentation coming in the future.
    And I will have to keep my eyes open for Excalibur limbs I guess ;)

    I've tried to epoxy split limbs back together. Don't waste your time.
