JUST A HEADS UP.......REVISED

Post by amythntr » Wed Jun 17, 2020 10:31 am

.....I inquired to Excalibur about picking up replacement limbs for the micro (AXE340) and matrix (A360 and A420TD).....I inquired about receiving these in black also. Finally, the A420TD I bought at the end of the summer was a demo model. I never was happy with the way the cocking string looked....so I wanted to review the procedure for sending the rail back for a change.

RESPONSE from Dawn:

1. One can purchase replacement limbs for both the micro and matrix series. They are now $100/set NOT $80/set as before.

2. They can be purchased in black (no need to worry about matching camo patterns.)

3. The replacement limbs WILL BE the BEEFIER limbs.

4. You NO LONGER have to send back the rail for a cocking string change on the Assassin series. They will ship one to you and you have to speak to Mike who will step you through the replacement process.AFTER QUESTIONING DAWN A FEW TIMES ON THE ABILITY TO CHANGE THE INTERNAL CORD ON THE ASSASSINS....SHE SAID THAT SHE WAS INCORRECT....THE RAIL STILL HAS TO BE RETURNED TO CHANGE THE CORD!

Just wanted to give those who this affects and are interested....this is the new information.

Does that mean that black is the only color available for matrix limbs?

.....no it does not....there have been issues in the past where people who received replacement limbs have complained that they do not match the original camo scheme....getting black not only looks cool burt avoids that issue.

3. The replacement limbs WILL BE the BEEFIER limbs.
I thought the beefier limbs were thicker and didn't fit the limb pockets of the Gen2-based risers? Also, wasn't the $80 price for blemished limbs? $100 for a fresh new set isn't bad.

Thats only the limbs on the 400TD and Suppressor. Limbs with magtips

It's $100 for Blems. Which is still a good deal since the price hasn't changed in a decade

I would say the $100 .00 includes shipping . If not they will have to tell you that amount before you finish the order . If you are in the us they may come from someone in this country .

.....I don't know if I agree on the blem price and time frame of them costing $100....I bought both matrix and micro blem limbs in the past and the price was $80....each time!

.....I am probably going to order them tomorrow....I will reconfirm everything with Dawn (since she was incorrect with regard to changing the internal cord)....price, type, shipping, etc!

No no, I mean it's been $80 for a decade, With the price of raw materials these days it's about time the price went up, they can't loose more money on blems as it is.

Also for what it's worth, every time I've bought blems, new limbs or whatever, shipping is always been extra. That's just the way it is, in Canada it's almost always on the buyer to pay the freight. Regardless of the product, destination or amount.
