Product Description

This superbly crafted crossbow is capable of producing arrow speeds in excess of 305 feet per second and like all Excalibur crossbows, its accuracy is amazing and its reliability is bulletproof. Generating plenty of horsepower, the Axiom SMF has what it takes to efficiently handle any of North America's largest game. Its 175 pound draw weight and 14.5" power stroke make it comfortable to cock and the Axiom's light 6 pound mass weight make it a joy to carry on a long day afield. The Axiom SMF is sold only as a kit including a matching multiplex crossbow scope with mounting hardware, our rope cocking aid, our 4 arrow quiver plus 4 Firebolt arrows complete with field points. The Axiom SMF kit is designed as a budget priced option to help new and seasoned crossbow hunters enjoy Excalibur quality at a low cost, but make no mistake, this is one serious hunting combination! Quality of manufacture, reliability, and accuracy of this economical kit is comparable with our most expensive options.

This package is listed by the manufacturer as a "price-point" bow focused on people who want to try a re-curve crossbow without breaking the bank. I believe that, with this bow, Excalibur has under promised and over delivered!

The bow only comes as a fully equipped kit with a scope, quiver, arrows, and cocking aid packed in a single box. Assembly took less time than watching the supplied instructional DVD and everything needed for assembly was included. The bow is light, weighing in at just over 6 pounds, and the balance is slightly weight forward which helps to damp recoil. Fit and finish is better than many "top of the line" crossbows. In an apparent move to keep costs low Excalibur replaced its usual extruded aluminum rail with a fiber reinforced plastic unit that is very solidly built and cross braced. The stock and limbs are camouflaged in "Real Tree", the rail is matte black, and there were no flaws in any surface. The trigger was light (less than 3 pounds), very crisp, and had no noticeable creep. The manual safety is easily accessible, positive acting, and large enough to use wearing gloves.

The supplied scope is designed specifically for the bow shooting 300fps and is very clear, adjustment is 1 click per half inch at 20 yards. The scope was close to zero out of the box and sighting in to dead on only took 4 shots. It is a 2.5 power cross hair scope with aim points for 10 through 50 yards which proved to be very close at all ranges.

The bow easily produced the accuracy guaranteed by Excalibur right out of the box with groups at 20 yards under 2 inches. At 50 yards my groups opened up to about 4 inches but that was expected because of wind drift, still extremely accurate.

This crossbow is amazing! I was able to put it together in about 15 minutes and shoot it soon thereafter. When constructing the crossbow you can tell that the parts are high quality and well thought out. It took me 4 shots to sight the scope in with field points and 2 shots to then sight in with broad heads; which hit dead center and 2 inches low at 20 yards. Do not shot at the same spot twice at this range or you will be buying more bolts. I have shot it out to 50yards with 4 to 5 inch groups fairly regularly. I love the fact that I can change the string in the field! No missed hunting days for me. You have to buy the bow stringer but it is worth every penney. It is so easy to shoot my 5 year old daughter can shoot it with a rest and hit the center bulls eye at 20 yards. Make sure the young ones keep their fingers down below the string!
I was concerned about the width of the bow which has been a non-issue. It is a pleasure to stalk around with. I was concerned that after changing to the Flemish string it only shot 305 fps. The Axiom dropped a 300lb bore at 10' with a neck shot in place. The Bolt with a 150gr boltcutter attached, knocked the hog over! It is plenty fast and plenty deadly. When you do not hit bone expect the bolt to go right thru the animal. I ended up putting luminocks on the bolts so I could stop buying new ones to replace the ones that would disappear into the thick, dark brush after shooting game. I was also concerned about the draw weight which is a non-issue with the string cocker. It could be a 300lb draw and I don't think it would be a problem.
I spent more than I wanted too on this crossbow and was considering ones that were faster and heavier for less.

After reading every review I could on the Excaliber Axiom SMF Crossbow Kit, I could not find any negative reviews. So, I bought one, and boy was I surprised. The bow was everthing I read about. Accurate, light weight, simple and easy to assemble. After assembling, it only took 2 shots and I was dead center on every shot at 20 yards. After that the scope is automaticly centered at 30 and 40 yards. Another feature I liked was you only have to remove 2 screws on the limbs and the whole thing will fit in a 2 gun rifle case instead of the large crossbow case. Reassemble in the field and you are still hitting the bulls eye on every shot. Another selling point was if your string breaks in the field, it can be replaced without any effort or special equipment. I could go on and on. Just remember all the reviews you read are the really true.

This crossbow is AWESOME! I received the crossbow right on time and I took it right out of the box. The box is very well packed and easy to get everything out.

First things first watch the assembly video -

It only takes a few minutes to watch it and it helps you to seamlessly put your crossbow together.

Assembly -

The video makes the assembly look simple (which it is pretty easy) but he puts it together on the video holding it in one hand. I would recommend putting it together on a table with a gun vise if you have one. If you follow the video step by step assembly is a snap.

Contents -

The crossbow itself seems to be really well made. I know there are those skeptics out there (like myself) that say "hmm... that front arm is plastic rather than aluminum... Maybe I should get the more expensive one". I say simply that the plastic one is very well made and shooting wise you cannot tell the difference. I shot the $1400 Excalibur crossbow a few weeks ago gator hunting and this bow shoots identical to the more expensive bow. The scope that comes with the crossbow is very good as well. I sighted in the main crosshairs at 20 yards and then there are 3 other yardage markers on the scope (which I am assuming are 30 yards, 40 yards, and 50 yards but I cannot say for sure because I have only shot the bow in an indoor 3D range that had 20yrds max shooting distance).

Sighting in -

Out of the box this crossbow is within a few inches of the bullseye. As many people have mentioned DO NOT SHOOT AT THE SAME SPOT TWICE! You will Robin Hood one of your bolts. Within a few minutes the crossbow was dialed in to dead-on and I kept drilling the same hole in the target at 20 yards.
