Barnett Crossbows

Postby Coyote » Thu Nov 18, 2010 11:21 pm

I resonantly got a Barnett Jackal crossbow and I was wondering if any one has had
problems with it or dose any one has a report on it or test one out.
I like mine and had no problems with it.

what model barnett crossbow did you buy ive been shooting a quad 400 for about 6 years now and i just bought the same setup for my grandson they make a good crossbow and very fast with a lot of kinetic energy which make it a good unit for killing deer bear and whatever i had a problem with my unit when i first bought it it was my fault but my cables and string snapped i called barnett and they gave me return authorization form in less than 4 weeks i had the bow back completly rebuilt with the current upgrades to make it more accurate they did this at no charge you dont see warranties like that everywhere thats why i bought my grandson a barnett hank k

I just acquired a Barnett Jackal with the 3-dot sight. After a few test shots zeroing in, I used the center dot at 20 yards, the lowest dot at 30 yards. I was consistently placing all the bolts inside a 3 inch circle, and that was my first time ever firing a crossbow. I will continue practicing to tighten up those groups more if I can. I just bought some NAP Spitfire mechanical broadheads to practice with also.

I am quite happy with it!

I had a Barnett rx280 recurve, now I use a Barnett demon. both are take down models( the bow seperates with 1 hand bolt), and with a reddot sight, it is lethal. My barnett requires no rail greese, and works quite well. the only problem I have ever had with my old barnett, was the sight rail kept working loose, but a little lock tight took care of that. Good product. Good company.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

I live in the UK (where you can't hunt!) but we are allowed to shoot at targets. Still really enjoy it and have several Barnett crossbows I purchased from ... et-1-c.asp and have no problems with any of them. I have

Ghost 410
Recruit Compound

Strangely my favourite is the Recruit which is just superb so light and small yet 300 ft/sec from 130b draw. I am now thinking about trying a recurve if anyone can recommend one.
