Product Description
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.

            The Velocity Raptor crossbow by Barnett is everything you could want in a fast light and manuverable package. It shoots fast and accurate and the illuminated scope works fantastic. The bullseye found no mercy in the first 5 shots and with a little adjusting you need to be careful to not hit your arrows. One of my favorite aspects of this crossbow is the ease of force required to load the weapon. After two shoulder surgeries this was a pleasant surprise. My daughter picked up the crossbow and was quickly hitting the bullseye also. Unbelievably fast and compact and smooth shooting also describe this Gander Mountain Exclusive package that shoots 10 feet faster than all other Raptors. It is a perfect 10.
