    Robin Allen crossbow

    Post by triggersmith on Fri Aug 23, 2013 2:24 pm

    Greetings.  I have one of Robin Allen's competition crossbows and need a set of prods for it. The length is 17.5 inches x 1 11/16" at root and tapers to 1" at the tip.  The last one he sent me was about 100 lbs and just right.  Some fool at a gun store I worked at (it was on display with a sign that said do not touch) thought it would be ok to cock and release without a bolt in it and shattered one of the limbs
    Robin sent me 2 more sets, one is heavy probable 150lbs or so, I'm not sure the trigger mechanism was designed for that heavy a prod, and the other just needs the fiberglass roots and tips glued on and finished.  Since I move to New Hampshire I don't have a workshop.  Any help out there.  I sure miss Robin.  Long Live the King Troll
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    prod for Robin Allen Crossbow

    Post by triggersmith on Mon Aug 26, 2013 9:19 pm

    Greetings Todd,
     You will find all the info you need on my post on selling my Robin Allen crossbow. The one set I have is a 250 lb. set and I don't think that trigger system will hold it.  Maybe so.  I don't think I can cock it though.  The bow is more for a 100 lb. prod for competition. I has a window in the riser hence the two piece prod.  I really like your crossbows.  I want to get into something smaller like yours and less complicated.  Would you be interested in doing some swapping?
