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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.Read more ›

Overall, with the exception of the string, the bow was a good deal. It shoots straight, and the scope is acceptable considering it came as part of the package. Read morePublished 1 month ago by HuskyLover

I am very impressed with this crossbows accuracy right out of the box. The cocking rope works great and makes cocking very ease. Ignore the other reviews about it being too short. Read morePublished 5 months ago by jeremy spilm
