5.0 out of 5 stars Great product for price!, December 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NcStar Crossbow with Red Dot (CD) (Sports)
Just got this crossbow and I love it! I don't know why so many people gave it a one star rating!

Cons: No instruction manual. Reels for fishing arrows are terrible.

Pros: Its cheap. I dropped it off the 2nd floor of an apartment and it made a small dent but after that it still works fine... So whoever fired it and it "Blew up in their face"... you just don't know how to properly put things together... Comes with a lot of accessories: Comes with 10 plastic arrows w/ metal arrowheads, 10 plastic darts about 2" in overall length w/ metal arrowheads, 4 plastic fishing arrows w/ metal barbed arrowheads, 1 compass (mounted onto crossbow), and a $40 red dot sight that is x and y adjustable.

Other things: Not the 90lb crossbow that it says it is, but what do you expect when something is so cheap. You get what you pay for.

Your link has helped me the most, as you say its a great toy when properly built and that we should not believe the 90 lb. lie. thanks for the interview will be buying this as a toy for targeting.

So if it's not a 90 lb pull has anyone tested it to see what it is? Is the red dot "satisfactory"?

Then they shouldn't lie about the draw weight. It's no so much as, " you get what you pay for " its the principle of it. False Advertising, ect.. I am a hunter and hunted crossbows for a longtime. One thing you don't want to find out that isn't true is the draw weight As you try to max out the poundage at 90 and its only gonna let you do 40, you can seriously injure yourself by putting to much behind it. Or, if you do get it close or there, then when you shoot it, with all that energy, the bolt can snap and come back and greater harm if not death by it snapping and going into different directions. The manufacture must not have really thought this through by making a product that doesn't do what its supposed to do. Also, I read no instructions? This is a perfect set up for a major lawsuit if anyone gets hurts. Just as any of my crossbows, if they lied about the draw weight, no instructions, ect.. your taking a chance on your life. And your life it seems to me, they don't care about or they wouldn't let themselves be set up like this. Its called being a RESPECTABLE BUSINESS, Customer service , AND SAFETY. I think { and all of you can } get the Attorney Generals office in on this and the states safety commission board also to look at it. To be sold here in the states, they have to meet certain criteria and safety regulations. In china, Taiwan, Vietnam, korea, ect... they don't have them like we do. All this cause they want to lie about their product and in turn, could cause death. Just ask any manufacture of any crossbows, { a very good one for example where I am from. Ten Point Crossbow Technologies, 1325 Waterloo Road,
Mogadore, OH 44260. Ask them what they need to ensure safety with their products. They are their own company. I know were talking about a $40.00 pistol crossbow, but safety is #1. Don't buy, have them researched by these I have mentioned then, do what you want. But, remember, a broken bolt flying is a dangerous projectile. Is your life worth only $40.00?

Mine went together with no need for any instructions. Just takes common since. I don't know exactly which one you have but mine is a 100 pound without a doubt!!

Much simpler then you make it out! I had no issues at all and for being safe I love mine and it is as safe as a $300 one. Mine had a new price of $150 and I got a "Used but not opened at all" crossbow for $50.00 and it is very safe. Got to get the proper one!
