Top 10 Best Hand Crossbows

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Hand Crossbow

1. Crosman AXCS185CK Hand Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Suppressors."

This bow is leaps and bounds better the an Jackal. Don't love that I have to buy only Crosman nocks. Shot 6 was dead center of the bullseye. Well the aluminum bolts are just awesome! You can see and feel the quality in the manufacturing.

2. CenterPoint AXCS185BK Hand Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Excellent crossbow!"

You can see and feel the quality in the manufacturing. It is sturdy molded polymer, so lightweight but strong. Very well crafted and a sturdy build. Cocking bow with the rope cocker is pretty easy for me. If you are thinking about it, buy it!

3. SA Sports 647 Hand Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Very tight groups."

A hunter looking for a quality bow at a decent price cannot go wrong with this Hand Crossbow. The open sights an scope mount kinda a pain. Off by a couple of inches at about 30-40 yards. Not a purchase you will regret, the SA Sports 647 blows almost everything else out there away. Power and accuracy are certainly there, no complaints for the bundle.

4. PSE 42199 Hand Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Zeroed at 20 yards."

Wish there was a way to modify or change it out. Mounted scope as low as I could. Best crossbow on the market! My complaints would be cocking it with the supplied rope cocker is not very smooth. Cocking this bow is more difficult than you would think.

5. BOLT Crossbows BT124 Hand Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Amazing crossbow."

Shot it in the house and couldn't get the bow out the wall. Looked like I shot him with a high powered rifle. This guy is easy and fast to load and use. My complaints would be cocking it with the supplied rope cocker is not very smooth. My first shot was at a small hill, and the bolt is buried deep in the dirt.

6. Ravin Crossbows R010 Hand Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Very tight groups."

This was purchased as an upgrade and replacement for my wife. Everything you want your venison-harvesting machine to be. Somehow I expected it to be nearly silent. Other than that it's an awesome crossbow. The only complaint was the assembly instructions from the manufacturer.

7. BOLT Crossbows BT102 Hand Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Better balanced."

Very well crafted and a sturdy build. It comes with little plastic bolts with a sharp metal tip. Fast delivery, easy assembly. Not a purchase you will regret, the BOLT Crossbows BT102 blows almost everything else out there away. Their price was the best by far!

8. Ravin Crossbows R020 Hand Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Accuracy is unreal!"

It is sturdy molded polymer, so lightweight but strong. Other than that it's an awesome crossbow. Mounted scope as low as I could. I was able to adjust this bow scope precisely within an hour of practice. I've been an archery hunter my entire adult life.

9. Ravin Crossbows R011 Hand Crossbow

Editor's Impressions

"Very solidly built."

Very well crafted and a sturdy build. The practice tips and Muzzy’s fly identical with the Ravin Crossbows bolts on this bow. Such an excellent buy for the money. I have to say, I have been a compound bow hunter for a long time. You can see and feel the quality in the manufacturing.
