BARNETT BAR78263 Crossbow Review

BARNETT BAR78263 First Impressions

"Accuracy is unreal!"

My only complaint is the bolts are expensive. It's fun to mess around with, as someone who has other archery equipment. The real astonishment came with our first shots. I've been an archery hunter my entire adult life. It was a little tricky figuring out how to put it together.

BARNETT BAR78263 Final Thoughts

"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.
