    Looking for a Canadian source for limbs.

    Post by Clancy on Thu Jul 09, 2015 8:17 am

    Limbs are pretty much the only thing I need to start a hunting style bow to replace my excalibur.
    Any Canadians know a source in country, or one that ships to Canada no problem?
    Looking for fiberglass, single piece or possibly two piece for a pass through design, still not sure yet.
    Thanks!

    I'm wondering the same.  But can't we order a prod from the US and have it shipped here?

    Franklin;  try   "The Crossbow  Store". Just google it . Their prices are right and a lot of their stuff is free ship. Great place to just look around.

    The Crossbow Store

    Thank you - it's a nice store, but it ain't exactly a 'Canadian' source.  Most US places offer free shipping to the US, but not to Canada.  California is about 3000 miles from me.  We often get dinged big time in border taxes and whatnot as well, especially if they only ship UPS.   USPS is the safest bet I've found, for not paying high duties.

    But, if I can't find anything else, they sure have good starting prices.

    Franklin, The only crossbow stuff I know from Canada is Excaliber. For me , I won't ship UPS. It's like one package and your paying half of the drivers retirement or what ever. They are not real fast and certainly not cheap.Do you think you could be better off getting things shipped from a private party  by  mail instead of freight?

    Best shipment method

    Post by Franklin29 on Sat Nov 21, 2015 12:33 pm

    I have a buddy in Ohio who comes to Canada once or twice a year.  Occasionally I get stuff shipped to him and then he brings it up for me.  I could also get him to mail me stuff. I agree with you on UPS.  Cheapest by far is good old US postal service, and Canada Post over here.  And, not much difference in timing really. 

    We don't have the population over here to support less popular stuff like medieval crossbow parts, so buying from the US is probably the only option. 

    Anyway, gotta build the rest of the bow first!!
