Barnett Recruit Compound Crossbow Package With Sling 3.9 5 45 45
Great first crossbow I received this as a Christmas present, and have been having fun with it since. I'm strictly a target shooter, and the accuracy on this, once dialed in, is quite impressive. The scope on this is better than the red-dot (and the magnification is a plus#. I have some concerns about the way the cable sits under the rail #Barnett has replaced the traditional slide with a static Teflon insert#, but so far, no problems other than the flattening of the cable where it is not served and rubs against the insert. Solidly built, decent Headhunter bolts, and although the included rope cocker works well for me, the option of a crank cocker #albeit pricey) is nice. January 22, 2015
Poor Quality I bought my crossbow in San Diego, CA. It happens to be the one and ONLY crossbow Dick?s carries in the store. The price ($300) I didn't think was too bad until I started putting it together and you could tell some of the pieces were poorly made with cheap material. The instructions for how to cock the crossbow were horrid at best. Being a beginner I ended up breaking the arrow guide holder (the little piece located under the scope mounting bracket) the very first day I used it. To make matters worse when trying to replace the broken part (since they do give you a second guide holder) it's nearly impossible to back the screws out because they use lock-tight on every single screw. Usually that wouldn't be a problem, except each screw uses the world?s smallest Alan Key for removal. So unless you tap the screw for removal you are guaranteed to strip it. I am seriously considering returning it. January 16, 2015
Nice bow foe the money I was looking at this bow for a while now and finally sold my other to get it. They only had two left in store, both display models. I wanTed a discount for being the display model but did not get one. I was able to test fire it in store at a target 7 yards away to insure that it at least fired. Did not come with original box but had all paperwork with it. Also it came with a sling and cocking rope specific for thia bow which works a heck of a lot better than a "universal" cocking rope. 4 stars because of being a display model and not receiving a discount.

awesome crossbow I have not had a chance to use it yet but I love everything about it so far January 5, 2015
terrible crossbow. Poorly made. Gander mountain sells one that's prebuilt and it's by fAR in better condition. December 26, 2014
storage do i have somthing special to do to store my crossbow 300 for a long period of time or just put it away til the next hunting season thanks December 18, 2014
Disappointed For now, that's all I can say. We bought the kit that came with a scope, sling, and quiver. The quiver bracket was not included, so the quiver could not be attached. But the most disappointing was the construction. The 4 small allen screws that mount the foot handle would not thread into the designed holes. It seems they were not threaded properly. So now we have to return it all and either take a chance with another one or try a different brand. Not sure yet. December 15, 2014
Poor quality for the price. It took 1/3 hour to find the price $299. And the box. When I got to the front to pay it was $329. I decided to pay the extra $30. Because of the hassle. But I ended up returning the bow because of poor quality. :( :( December 3, 2014
very good for the money Got this for my brother for Christmas , loves it. Easy to set up right of box. December 3, 2014
Worth every penny. Picked up this past Thursday during Black Friday Doorbuster Sale. VERY easy to set up. Had it assembled and taking shots at a 3D target in less then 10 mins. Sighted in in less then 4 shots. The multi-retinal scope was dead on the yardages listed with the manual. After another practice session, I took to my tree stand Saturday night. 5 mins before last light had a nice 8pt walk out and take a dirt nap. The Easton bolt cut thru him like a hot knife thru butter. I hope to have many many more years of enjoyment from this Xbow. But so far it has been worth every penny spent. December 1, 2014
