    70 dollars?

    I'd rather go for Xplorer.

    Whilst I am fervently for the excessive use of metal in making things, I don't quite see the point of it.
    Xplorer is cheaper, lighter and easily strong enough for any sensible setup.
    If you really absolutely need a SS boltsled (due to spring load I mean) then you will need a lot more SS parts, and a gym membership. Also probably some darts made of something a little heavier and sturdier than foam.

    Yep gotta agree here xplorer is the way to go.

    Slightly off topic does chrisB still do metal longshot boltsleds? Mine have held up well

    At this point, you'd be making what's not even a dart gun anymore, a blaster with fully SS internals would be a sight.

    i'd actually like to see someone make a high-strength quenched steel priming rod with good handles that don't pop off under load. my priming rod is bending :/

    At the end of the day. I can reinforce my boltsled for $10, and get the same results.

    If we're gonna get super technical, Lord Drac (who is a pretty reliable source for things OTHER than range tests, lol) said that average reinforcement can't handle 25 KG loads, and yes you'll need more parts, but this definitely isn't just a gimmick, it's made for war.

    what brassed longshot really needs over 25kg? i'm riding on 20kg with an alu-plate reinforced explorere boltsled, and i'm having more problems with my priming handle than anything else.

    he actually says 25 pounds which equates to about 11.3 kg. i have the alu brackets on my longshot and have no troubles with 17+ kg loads.

    (on the other hand do you think drac could even prime anything with more then 11kg in it?)

    Drats, silly american equivalencies strike again,also what LS doesn't have over 11 KG if it's well modded...jees. But still, this COULD take 25 KG. maybe.

    And about Drac...probably not hahaha, those skinny arms.

    i don't really like drac. he's big, but his workmanship doesn't match up with the amount of acknowledgment he gets.

    I guess its just the sheer magnitude of money spent on buying like, every new release as they are released. Money speaks

    In terms of his priming ability, he can cycle a pumpsnap rather well, and that uses a K26, which is about 13 kgs, from memory.

    The whole mass credit for what he does is also confusing.

    As previously mentioned a few times on here, I've had a reinforced boltsled (only coathanger, not alu brackets) disintegrate with a 32kg spring load. This was just a destruction test, as even I really struggled to prime it (took both hands, and buttstock against chest)

    With what I classify as a normal spring load - 16/17kg - I'm yet to see a boltsled break, and I currently have 4 of these in my collection. The whole steel sled sliding against plastic channels in the shell is eventually going to cause issues as well, imho.

    Cheers,

    I do believe a full metal bolt sled would look awesome but as clunk said, it will cause issues in the longrun as well. Any one that has or does work with metal, will know how much of a pain it can be. It shrinks, expands, warps and twists.

    Reinforced plastic is a much better and easier option IMHO. It will always retain it's shape and if it's reinforced correctly, can withstand a decent spring load.
