I quote :
  • "Material: Stainless steel with wood handle "
Is it really wood or plastic painted look a like wood ? And is it all actually made of steel ? Or there are some plastic parts covered in chrome paint ?
Just received my crossbow. It was a very crossed bow. The trigger was bent almost 90 degrees, the bow was skewed on the middle axis, and the arms were twisted as well. The box had no padding, just a box with a damaged crossbow, nothing else. Waste of money, stay away.
Just a warning: almost every drop from this company has been shit. Missing parts and inaccurate descriptions are a common theme. Customer service is completely unresponsive. Buy at your own risk.
The description has two inaccuracies in it: the grips are cheap plastic, not wood; and it does not come with any extra parts.
Mine was actually missing a single screw for the grip.
Besides these three disappointments, the crossbow is pretty solid and fires cotton swabs or toothpicks pretty far.
I got mine just now. It looks quite just enough for my expectation. Building quality is not perfect but not that bad either. Transluscent acryl parts are OK, but I am a bit afraid it can be not so durable if you drop it on a hard surface. The grip would be perfect if it is made of real wood... but fine DIY tunig will be fun for this steampunk bow :-) Trajectory speed is fater than I expected. Longer arrow like a long q-tip flies better FYI

This one really disappointed me. A lot of the parts are made to look like metal, but they are actually plastic. Mine was missing an acorn nut. The package didn't come with any instructions, or even a packing slip.
Also, why doesn't it come with any toothpicks!? This is maddening! It sat on my shelf for a week before I happened to order a sandwich that came with toothpicks.
I'm hesitant to buy anymore of these. The one I bought cant fit anything in it to fire. Have they been improved recently?

I'm not sure about the other models you may have, but the top piece on this one is adjustable. You can lift it upwards to fit pretty much anything and press it down to hold it. Also, I found the toothpicks with the flat backs work best.
These designs keep getting more and more absurd. Can't wait to see what they come up with next. :P
This little beast is awesome! I've been using 5" skewers and qtips dipped in alcohol - awesome! Aim is pitiful with toothpicks, but the larger skewers are dead straight.
I also did not get any additional hardware or spare parts, but am still quite satisfied.
What are you all shooting with?
Received this today. Like it, but it didn't include any extra hardware as described. I previously purchased the bowman toothpick crossbow, which did include extras.
I received mine today. It looks very nice and works well.

Did you get any extra hardware? I did not.

No extra hardware here either.
so how do i get one? did they sell out or something?
When did mass drop get flooded with prudes? Can't wait for mine!
I'll say it if nobody else will. This is just plain wrong Massdrop! "Common Sense" dictates this ad & offering be pulled.

Ok, I'm sorry. It's obviously wrong to threaten anyone in any circumstance especially a workplace. And it's reckless to advertise an item to be used to shoot people at your office. Fair. From my very first post I've only been trying to say you may be overestimating the power of this crossbow. I got in on a previous drop, the one that holds multiple picks, it doesn't pierce cardboard from 2 feet away. If you want to hurt someone with this you need to shoot them point blank in the eye, and even then they likely wont go blind. It'll be equivalent to shooting someone in the eye at point blank with a nerf gun. Unpleasant, but, not lethal.

Pulled? Dude, they sell knifes on this site...
To dangerous for my 12 year old kid?

I'd say probably less dangerous than a BB gun, but similar enough perhaps. Do you trust your kid with a BB gun? It all depends on how responsible you think your kid is and how well you can teach them "gun" safety. If you give it to them I'd make it very clear that they are not to shoot people or animals with it under any circumstances and that it is dangerous but you trust them because they are responsible. Then make a big deal of teaching them the four rules of gun safety (just treat it like a gun as far as safety goes). They should also probably be taught not to dry fire it. In a normal bow or crossbow this can cause damage. If they want to uncock it, they should either load it and fire at a target or pull the string up and ease it forward slowly. It should also not be stored loaded or cocked or it could weaken the bow.
looks very cool but I thought it would be able to fold into a smaller size by the appearance.
"Keep it loaded on your desktop and you’ll never have to worry about an office dispute. "
Yeah, because you'll no longer have an office to dispute in.
Pointy
Yeah, there's no way I wouldn't get the pink slip if I brought this to work. It's not right but unfortunately it is the state of the times.
That said I can't think of a realistic use other than having it sit on my desk (at home) so I'm going to pass. Cool design though!
This is so cool. Does anyone know if this can be shipped to Canada, and if yes what are the costs involved?

Damn, what a pity :(
What a dumb law. Sorry you guys have to deal with this kind of shenanigans up there. Well at least you can get short barreled rifles easily.
Could you get on a plane with this in your carry on.
Davimorg
Maybe? It's gonna depend on how much of a salty the TSA agents are that day. I wouldn't risk it personally unless I was prepared and ready to ship it home. That being said, items like this (unlike firearms) have no shipping restrictions. So ship it to yourself to your heart's content. Be careful shipping internationally though. Some countries might take it in customs.
I would advise to do research on prior Massdrops before joining this drop. Just a word to the wise...

It came today, very early.

I've also had mine for a while. No extra hardware, but *very* happy with the piece overall.
do u need to build it or does it come fully build? would be fun to put it together
I cant think of any company that wouldnt escort you out of the building for shooting someone with this. Good way to get a half day off maybe.

Do you mean get fired? Unpaid vacation!
When a regular mini-crossbow isn't enough. Transform someone's eyeball out of their socket today! Seriously though, looks cool as shit!
