Just received this item as a pistol alternative to my Barnett crossbow.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!
Firstly, this item was NOTHING like it's image (which was obviously a stock image of an 80lb pistol crossbow with a foot stirrup - which this one does not have, and is a 50lb crossbow!)
Put the string on the metal prod (that is how you can tell it's a 50lb crossbow, as 80lb pistol crossbow's come with a fiber glass prod) and, when attempting to cock it, one of the plastic end pieces flew off, despite the fact that I hammed both onto the ends, to ensure that they were secure!
The general rule is that you get what you pay for and, since this only cost $25.00, it should have set off alarm bells!
