Top 10 Best Compound Crossbows

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Compound Crossbow

1. BARNETT BAR78263 Compound Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Was easy to assemble."

I was adjusting the elevation when I noticed the whole assembly start to come apart. All the power you need and great value for what you get. Wish there was a way to modify or change it out. Easy to use; cocking system is fantastic! Very acceptable crossbow for hunters that can match arrows to game.

2. Southland Archery Supply Compound Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Buy buy buy."

Assembly was very easy but I am a experienced archer. Somehow I expected it to be nearly silent. Second is the instructions could use more detail. Sling is a piece of cake to install. Wish there was a way to modify or change it out.

3. PSE ARCHERY Compound Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"This crossbow rocks."

Only took about 45 min to sight at 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards. Power and accuracy are certainly there, no complaints for the bundle. Cocking bow with the rope cocker is pretty easy for me. Looked like I shot him with a high powered rifle. If you are thinking about it, buy it!

4. BARNETT BAR78000 Compound Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Very fun."

Accurate to 60 yards which is the mac I've tried. Very happy with my Compound Crossbow. Did not range the post in the scope but appears that it could be about 60 yards. It is a lil hard for my son to cock but he loves it. If you are thinking about it, buy it!

5. SAS Compound Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Shot very well."

Kept having a bolt hit between the edge of a book and pass on through. Honestly no complaints with this crossbow, and at this price its a steal. Honestly no complaints with this crossbow, and at this price its a steal. Yes it needs to be adjusted but I had no issues with it so far. Some assembly required, but all tools except a flat screwdriver were included.

6. CenterPoint AXCMW185CK Compound Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"One other point."

Easy to draw is a plus as well. Only took about 45 min to sight at 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards. I've been an archery hunter my entire adult life. Not a purchase you will regret, the CenterPoint AXCMW185CK blows almost everything else out there away. Second is the instructions could use more detail.

"This is amazing."

Haven't even needed to serve the string. It was a little tricky figuring out how to put it together. No problem shooting 45 yrds free hand. I gave it 4 stars for the warranty. Very well crafted and a sturdy build.

"Lubed up the string."

It comes with little plastic bolts with a sharp metal tip. This guy is easy and fast to load and use. Their price was the best by far! Somehow I expected it to be nearly silent. Cocking bow with the rope cocker is pretty easy for me.

9. SA Sports 622 Compound Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"I would recommend it."

The real astonishment came with our first shots. This crossbow is awesome for the money. Rifle ammo is still more expensive. Only took about 45 min to sight at 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards. Cocking was slightly more difficult with the 355 but only slightly.
