Alright... I did some research and fund out that I can buy an aluminum body as an upgrade from the plastic body that broke... So I did.

I just got it in the mail tonight, so I stayed up a little later than planned and put it together.

Got enough of the pieces in to test fire...One shot! Broke another piece. This time, it was one of the protective plastic pieces that cover the spring steel bow to keep it from cutting through the string.

I might plasti-dip or powdercoat the steel bow ends. But this is pretty ridiculous.

Any ideas, guys?

Looks dead, paintballs too light being the problem. If you fire a crossbow with no load on the string (which is what you're nearly doing with a paintball there), they rip themselves apart (well cheap ones do). If the string worked a piston then maybe it could work like an airow bow but that's about it - stick to a slingshot.
