Weighing in at just 7.3 pounds and only 20" axle to axle, this bow is no doubt a game changer. It may be lighter and faster than its predecessor, the Ghost 400, but the 410 has maintained some of its most impressive features. Like the 400, the 410 features Barnett's proprietary Carbonlite Riser Technology (CRT), which shifts the balance point away from the riser and back to the shoulder of the shooter. Barnett's unique patent-protected, ultra-light, super-strong Carbonlite riser boasts an incredible 5-to-1 safety factor and provides the perfect balance of weight and speed.

Along with the items mentioned in the product description, the following are also included in the package:
+ 1 Barnett fatigue-cammo crossbow embroidered cap
+ 1 stick of string wax
+ 1 extra trigger spring (the thing that holds the string once cocked)
+ 1 extra thick shoulder pad with shock absorbing (based on preference you can remove the standard pad and replace with this)
+ 3 100 grain field-tips
Items to note when assembling the bow:
+ All bolts thread very easily. Recommend you insert bolts into sockets and get a feel for the resistance before assembly. If parts are not lined up properly (tight tolerances), the bolts will not thread easily and you could cross-thread (e.g. quiver, bow to stock). Take it easy and make sure everything is lined up properly.
+ When attaching bow to stock, the crossed strings go into the slot below the string guide and the bow string (that is used to nock the arrow rides on top of the stock on the guide
+ You might need to tilt the stock to get the strings in place, then align the stock once the stings are lined up. There are 2 small guide tabs in the stock that need to slide into slots in the bow. Line those up and gently push down on the stock while pulling up on the bow to get everything lined up and in place. You need to do this because the bow string pushes the stock out of place and you need to counter the resistance of the string during assembly. Again, the bolt used to mount the bow to the stock screws in rather easily at first then gets a little harder. Make sure it is easy to start or it is not lined up properly.
So why did I give this a 4 vs. a 5
The only reason I gave it a 4 was because they could have packaged it a little better. Everything is extremely well labeled. However, the 'made in China' scope was not properly secured in the box, ends were not taped, and therefore the scope slid out of the box during transport smashing the lens cover. Not sure if being tossed around messed up the scope adjustments, but I can tell you I had to remove the mounting rings and re-align the scope as it was about 30 degrees off horizontal level when I mounted it.Although not a big deal, I would expect more from a $1000 1st class bow and bow maker. I have not contacted Barnett yet for a replacement cover but will update my review once I experience their customer support. Also, I have not shot the bow yet and will further update once I've done that.
*** UPDATE 10/1/2013
Contacted support regarding the damaged lens covers. The US-based support team was friendly, knowledgeable and eager to solve my problem. They asked for a purchase order number and when I indicated I ordered through Amazon they said no problem. All they asked me for was my contact information (no scrambling for serial numbers, etc.) and I got replacement covers within 1 week via USPS. Overall a quick and pleasant experience. I have not fired the bow yet so can't speak to the quality of the scope yet (I've heard a few negative things about not maintaining zero) but will do so once I have the data.
*** UPDATE 10/7/2013
Well, I got out and fired the bow this weekend and it was awesome. Here are a few things to keep in mind before you go out:
+ Make sure you have plenty of bow wax for your bowstring and string guide. Failure to wax will prematurely wear out your string, etc.
+ The included rope cocking device is relatively easy to use and works well. However, this bow has a 185lb draw so you need a bit of upper-body strength to use it. I suggest one of two things: 1) if you can handle the draw, shorten the string of the cocking device. It is shipped rather long and makes it harder to use. I'm about 6' tall and I shortened my string by about 18 inches and it is perfect. When pulling up on the string, if you have to pull much beyond your waist, the string is too long; 2) Consider a 'crank' cocking device. You can see my review and customer images on Amazon here: Barnett Crossbows 17031 Cocking Device
+ This bow shoots with such force that few targets can handle the bolt impact without the bolt going totally through or so far in that you cannot extract. A few suggestions here: 1) only shoot foam targets that are solid enough to handle your bow; 2) shoot 1 bolt then go and try to extract the bolt from the target. You might find you cannot get it out for several reasons; 3) Consider alternative bolt tips designed to make removal easier such as B000T9D5KE 4) Consider a removal tool such as B000LCA6PG Last thing you want is to be at the range with no way to get your bolts out of the target because you have no grip or leverage
+ Only use carbon bolts. The bow ships with 3 carbon bolts and the owners manual strongly discourages anything but carbon. Suggest you pick up a 5-pack with bolt tips indicated above.
I'm leaving 3 stars because when this bow fires, it fires fast and accurate, like everyone has said. The customer service was mediocre. He wasn't at all apologetic and seemed relived when I suggested replacing through Amazon so he didn't have to write up the paperwork. But I definitely cocked it correctly and it went off. Hopefully only my unit was defective. Be careful. This injury could have been way worse.
Edit- turns out the bone was badly broken and central slip tendon was severed. Had surgery today. Their customer service was awful but Amazon sent me a replacement the next day. Be careful all. Guess my season is over but I still got 5. Barnet up your qc and customer service
Update on 9/22/16 you could say I know what I'm doing with crossbows been using Barnett for the past 8 years now I bought the ghost 410 and never really used it never practice shooting until 3 weeks ago I shot its 4 times and it shot nice really nice until the 4th shot it sounded different from the other shots didn't really think anything of it so I shot it a 5th time and the string broke arrow went about 15 yards and the string smack me in my face yest I wax strings yes the bolt was place correctly and also the scope don't I wish I could return it. Please stay away from this crossbow.
