Reviews
Barnett Recruit Crossbow is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for the Buck I have a much more expensive Xbow and it's great; but this Recruit is an incredible buy for the money. I bought it as a backup but I love its weight and balance. The only thing it needs is a camo paint job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bow I am new to the Cross Bow game but am very pleased with the product for a starter such as myself. Great bow, came as a kit including Bow, red dot optic, three bolts with target tips, cocking rope and a bolt holder. High quality product, easy to assemble, easy to read instructions. Only issue was learning about the safety...Safety requires the bolts be placed on the bow in a particular direction, once this was explained (via YouTube video) all was gravy. Shoots very well to point of aim, a little flex in the carbon chassis but not enough to affect game size accuracy out to 30 meters. I would definitely recommend this crossbow to anyone new or upgrading from entry level bows. Capable of taking down Hogs and deer with proper shot placement, but you will be following blood trails it will likely not be an immediate take down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal ! Bow arrived and was easily assembled. This is a terrific bow and the cost is right. I expect to put a good scope on it since I don't care for the red dot. Looking forward to mi first deer with this bow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the money, it can't be beat!! Very easy to site in and easy to cock the string, so it would be perfect for someone that has problems with the heavier crossbows out there and still have the speed needed to get the job done!!
