C4 Urukay hole

  • Hi!


    I have purchased C4 Urukay few days ago. It looks very solid and nice. The only concern I have is a hole on top part of it, right near a spear placement. What is this for?

  • I have a C4 Urukay 120 cm which I purchased earlier this year, but it has no such hole. I have been told that hole was for inserting a short pin that could be used as a rest tab to draw the wishbone to before the final pull back to the shaft tab or wishbone slot at the rear end of the spear. A pin should have been included with the gun.


  • Interesting idea. But couldn't it potentially rip into the bands as they contract, or snag the shooting line? Unless the pin is meant to be removed after loading. Also without having some rake/angle to it I can't see a straight pin holding the band wishbone in a secure way even temporarily.

    Yes, the pin is removed after cocking of the bands is completed, plus I imagine that it would soon be lost if you dropped it.

  • I have a 132cm graphite that had the hole . Pete is spot on about the pin, I epoxoed the hole shut as I never found it hard to load.
