4th bow, don't hunt regularly, but target shoot often a variety of toys. Nice bow, with a good value. Fast, & solid.
Rail is true alloy, easily mount 2nd 3x magnifier, or tactical light if needed. Small rail up front underneath also.
Came with 3 nice carbon arrows with target tips, 'clean'. Even trigger pull, nice metal safety, seems quality build. One caution - seems the Barnett guys had an afterthought to add the string slider, and it's in a separate package without mention in the assembly manual. So ... really a hassle .. Following the manual, I assembled but use loctite (don't want stuff to fall off 5 miles in the woods), then find this separate part and instruction in buried in the bottom of box . Yep, you have to disassemble the foot stirrup, and pull off the bow assembly, and start all over. Hence, if you get the bow, look for the line slider and instruction FIRST. Otherwise it's 4x the hassle to assemble twice. Nice bow overall, the red dot is comparable to a $50-75 red/green unit with 3 dots and 4 intensities. Seems repeatable, but haven't fired it 50x yet. Definite first impression is top shelf.
2nd comment - Per the posting by the 'engineer' whom failed the main bolt attach, I have slightly different perspective. I had to assemble and disassemble the bow to stock main bolt twice, and had loctite it. Clearly the other author did not put in the right length bolt, as stated himself, and did not have enough bolt engagement. The proper bolt has plenty of engagement, as well as a socket interface to make the joint interface solid. I am a senior mechanical & structures engineer and have done aerospace over 20 yrs, and have no reservation about the 'head' joint - PROVIDED you put in the correct bolt. If it's too short, or looks wrong, then pause and double check your instructions and parts.
