Reviews
SA Sports Empire Recon Crossbow is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Little Crossbow For the price, this is a nice little bow and is very simple to assemble. Not sure if the bow is lined up this well or I just got lucky, but the first shot was less than 2" from bulls eye at ten yards and the second shot placed right next to the first. I haven't shot it enough to comment on long term quality, but seems to be well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great crossbow for whitetail I got this crossbow in and it was simple to put together. Sighted the scope in at 25 yards in 6 shots. Very accurate. 2 days later. Killed a big doe at 27 yards. Shot clean threw using the Toxic broadhead. She drop about 30 yards away. Next day got a nice 6 point at 41 yards. Didn't go all the way threw but still had good blood trail. Took wife the next Saturday. She got a nice 7 point at 35 yards. Went clean threw. But chased him about 1/2 a mile. This is a great crossbow for whietail. Easy to cock (my wife can cock it with no problem). We both love it so much we ordered her one too. You do need to use a 20" bolt. Not the 16" that comes with it. But they are good to practice with. Will shoot threw a 1/2 sheet of plywood at 25 yards.

There was some additional information from SA Sports on this topic as well that they include in the owners manual;&quot;We recommend using 20” carbon bolts with a weight of about 300 grain in combination with a 100 grain field point/broadhead, giving you a total weight of about 400 grains. You can use a lighter bolt (we don’t recommend using anything less than about 375 grain total weight with any of our crossbows) and you will gain some speed with a lighter bolt, but you will trade off some penetration power. Heavier bolts will offer better penetration, but will sacrifice speed; they also will have more drop in the bolt giving you less distance on the shots, depending on the speed of the crossbow.&quot; <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: Customer Service</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2014-12-24</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="1330297"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> What is length & Width per NY State regulations </h2> <div class="bvseo-question-detail"> </div> <div class="bvseo-author">Asked by: Thom 123</div> <div class="bvseo-answer" data-answerid="1577002"> Bolts must be 17 inch long at the minimum <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: casey1</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2014-10-27</div> </div> </div> </div> <script type="text/javascript"> if (document.getElementById('bvseo-questionsSection')) { document.getElementById('bvseo-questionsSection').style.display = 'none'; } </script> <!--end-questions--><ul id="BVSEO_meta" style="display:none!important"> <li data-bvseo="bvDateModified">2015-07-04T16:02CST</li> <li data-bvseo="ps">bvseo_cps, prod_bvqa, vn_cps_3.1.5</li> <li data-bvseo="cp">cp_1, bvpage1</li> <li data-bvseo="co">co_hasquestionsanswers, tq_6</li> <li data-bvseo="cf">loc_en_US, sid_593042, PRD, sort_recentAnswersFirst</li> <li data-bvseo="diagnostics">clientName_sportmansguide</li></ul><!--end-bvseo-questions--><!--BVSEO|dz:Main_Site-en_US|sdk:v1.0.7.0-n|msg:timer 78ms -->
