Hot Gear: Crossbow Hunters Have New Option from Parker

Parker Bows’ new Ambusher Crossbow sets a new standard by being the lightest, most compact, high performance crossbow in the industry.

Parker Ambusher

The Ambusher incorporates a revolutionary front-end that features Parker’s proprietary Advanced Split Limb Technology with integrated Micro-Lite Limb Pocket System, making it ultra-compact while sending arrows downrange at over 315 feet per second. The Ambusher also features an adjustable draw weight of 135 to 160 pounds, allowing it to be customized to fit the hunter with no special tools, no bow press or additional parts required.

With the ergonomic contoured pistol grip and forearm, the Ambusher is easy to maneuver in a treestand or ground blind. At a mere 6.5 pounds, the Ambusher is extremely lightweight and optimally balanced for a steadier aim on the target. The soft rubber stock spacer on the butt stock of the Ambusher delivers an additional 1 inch of overall length and provides non-slip comfort and optimal eye position for the scope.

For smaller hunters, the stock spacer is easily removable for a more custom fit. The factory installed and tuned Anti-Vibration and Shock (AVS) System comes equipped to reduce noise and vibration for ultimate concealment. The Ambusher is engineered with Parker’s exclusive Synergy Cams that deliver greater performance and diminish the cocking effort by more than 50 percent when paired with the Red Hot EZ Roller Rope Cocker, making Parker crossbows the easiest to cock in the industry.

The Ambusher comes decorated in  G1 Vista or Pink Muddy Girl Camo. It includes a Quick Detach Quiver, four arrows with field points, and is available in two optics packages: (1) Multi-Reticle Scope or (2) 3X32 Illuminated Multi-Reticle Scope. The Ambusher has a retail price beginning at $499.95.
