Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works for me The one they put together for me had the string break on the first shot. Not sure why. Luckily I had test fired it in store and they gave me the display instead which fires fine. I was shooting tight groups of three arrows within a 1.5" bullseye on my first day with it. Pleased with this bow for now. Good quality for the price. October 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Product is alsome. I like this Crossbow, it's light easy to handle. I recommend this crossbow to anyone who is looking for a good Crossbow. January 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Buy Light weight easy to use and pretty accurate right out of the box. November 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good crossbow!! I'm sure there's bad apples out there, but I've been more than happy with the Recruit. Shot two deer with it and went less than 40yds. Super accurate at 20, 30, and 40. I'm sure you can spend more $$$ but I'm glad I didn't. November 28, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by String breaking issues I should have checked the reviews before I purchased. This crossbow has major spring break issues. I got off about eight shots before my String broke. I just assumed because it was a Barnett it would be high-quality. Thank you Dick's for being so gracious and exchanging this for a better Barnett crossbow October 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by rock30 Great crossbow!!this is a great started bow that don't kill your wallet highly recommend it September 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than advertised I bought my recruit last year,tired of carrying a heavy crossbow. performance is above rated specs 310 fps arrow wt 421 gr at 10,20,30 yards. you don't want to shoot at the same 50 yards it shoots a 4-5 in group. the only negative is the red dot is not good at low light so it was replaced with a nikon bolt xr September 12, 2014
