Rated 5 out of 5 by casey Love it!
I'm a 57 year old female. I bought this bow in the summer so I would have it for hunting season. I wanted a bow I was able to cock myself in case I shot and missed, I wouldn't be sitting in my stand for nothing. It's plenty easy for me to use and is quite a bit faster than my husband's bow. I really love it and got 3 deer with it this season. My only complaint is the scope. In the early dawn or evening when it starts to get a little dark, it is almost impossible to see the dots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JR well build crossbow
I have yet to sight it in, was easy to install all items. Also handles and feels a very well build crossbow. The design is excellent and comfortable to shoulder.
One item was missing in the box, the hand crank to cock the bow. I emailed Barnett service department yesterday and just waiting to receive there replie on the missing item. I will update my review after my answer from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wildcats_129 This is an excellent crossbow
Very great crossbow, only took a couple of shots to have it zeroed in on target. Crank system is awesome feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suasponte This new Barnett Headhunter is nasty mean!
I previously owned the Barnett Quad 400 AVI. Upgraded to the Headhunter. WOW! A very fast and nasty weapon. Took 7 shots with the mounted scope and was touching bolts in a 1 inch circle at 30 yards. Very lightweight with the new Carbonlite material. Hand crank is extremely easy to use and removable handle is very nice. Absolutely a 5 Star weapon and priced very nicely. No complaints and dropped a doe at 30 yards. The impact sounded like an ax hitting an oak tree. Once sighted in, it's pure lethal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lightning Dan Excellent choice!!
Not only does this crossbow LOOK good, it operates flawlessly!!
The only problem I had (not having used one before) was the instructions.
I had to figure things out for myself but eventually did.
This bow is so accurate! The scope is the best I have used.....You couldn't ask for a better performer. I highly recommend this crossbow.

Set bow up in 20 minutes very easy. shots at 20 any 30 yrds within a inch, the hand crank is a extremely nice feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dlist Great Package Deal
Love it. Includes the quiver, the scope, a carrying harness, and the crank loading system already installed (the instructions show you how to install it but it's already in there).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bobcat Some assembly required
The only complaint I have was the assembly requirements. The instructions were not clear at all. It looked like it was a mix of instructions for 2 or 3 models. In the box there were several pieces and parts that were not even for the Headhunter model. This really confused things! There were 3 separate instruction materials and some didn't apply and the others were vague. The scope instructions didn't fit the scope at all. They didn't even show or describe anything about the lumination. Installing the cable guide is a bear if you are by yourself (unless you can figure out a way to secure the stock while your struggling holding the guide in place and sliding it into the stock groove). Now that it's together however, I can't wait to try it out.
