Product Description
barnett The Barnett Velocity Raptor FX Crossbow is perfect for the smaller-framed or beginning hunter. Equipped with durable, high-speed features that are ready for any big game animal. Crosswire string and cable system for reliability shot after shot. The custom composite laminated limbs, high-energy cam system, and lightweight composite stock make this a powerful bow without added weight. Anti-Dry Fire (ADF) Trigger has a spring-loaded redundant safety bar that remains in place until the arrow is properly seated, which only then allows the user to switch the safety off and shoot the bow. Trigger is also made out of metal injected mold for tight tolerances and less jerking. Constructed with a CNC machined 7/8" Picatinny rail.

Package includes: 3x32 Premium Illuminated scope, sling, rope cocking device, 3-arrow quiver, and three 20" Headhunter arrows.

    I am a big dude, 6'2" 225lb at its largest size this crossbow is a little small for my, but its compact design is what sold it. With the back extended and the scope forward it is just big enough. Very fast bow, and every bit as accurate as a rifle, but just like a rifle it is only as accurate as you. The best feature in my opionion is the scope. I never liked to turn on my red dot until it was getting to be prime time or I saw a deer, with this scope you can shoot it off and turn on the dots as it approches dusk. I have mine setup at 15, 20, 25 and 30 yards and it is spot on. You will need the rope cocking devise to make shooting this more pleasurable. I highly recommend this bow if you want a compact narrow design. It fits the bill to a tee and I can not wait to fill my freezer with it.

    Assembly required - vague instructions - some component packages (specific screws and Allen wrench packages) not even marked to help discern their use. Accuracy good @ 10 and 20 yards, once assembled, but string broke on first attempt @30 yards (less than 20 bolts fired total thus far). Gander Mountain replacing at no charge, BUT Barnett does not sell replacement strings, so to get a string to match the original one it had to be ordered custom-made by a 3rd party - now waiting to get it repaired and back. Bow is a bit noisy and heavy. Overall experience is not good. Note to manufacturers - why not make your "low-end" products the absolute best - after all these might be the gateway purchase that cements a lifetime of product / brand preference.

    Powerful light crossbow with great scope

      This crossbow shoots with a lot of power. Impossible to charge without cocking device included but for maybe the superhumans. It is lightweight and the scope it comes with has a red or green battery lighted reticle or circles giving different ranges. Each circle on the scope is a drop of or increase of about 10 yards. Great fun beacuse arrows dont cost much compared to ammo for a gun as long as you have a good target that wont eat your arrows because the power. So definily need a block to shoot at.

          This fall,my daughter shot a doe at 15 yards.I shot a turkey at 25 yards 30 minutes later. I shot a 8 point buck with a 17" spread at 40 yards. The other deer and turkeys never spooked when we shot. We can shoot out to 40 yards with 2 inch groups. We use shooting sticks to be more accurate. The crossbow is quiet, easy to draw and light with a good trigger. Anybody can shoot it after sighting it in. We love shooting it. Great crossbow.
