The construction of this crossbow is second to none. It was simple to put together and took about 20 minutes. Just read the instructions. The removable quiver is great and so simple to attach or take down. The stock has two plastic covers on each side that can be removed to add a hand crank (sold separately). The release of the string when shot is quick and leaves little vibrations. Solid, solid, solid. The look, feel and weight of the crossbow is amazing. You can definitely tell that this was made in the USA. I don't know how else I can say it, but it just feels solid and I am very confident this will last years to come with very little maintenance.
the only negative is the 3 dot scope it comes with. Yes, it does work but fixed iron sights would do EXACTLY the same thing. Having this scope did nothing for me. I was able to sight the scope and it was accurate at 30 yards but I was only shooting 2-2/5 inch groupings at 30 yards. I really wanted closer to 1 inch groupings.
After one day of receiving the crossbow, I purchased the Barnett 3x 32mm illuminated scope. WOW, this scope was awesome and helped me get to my 1-1.5 inch groupings at 30 yards. Because I am not going to hunt with this crossbow, 30 yards is perfect for me.
Make sure to wax the strings every 5-10 shots. Barnett suggests that the string should last between 100-300 shots depending on how well you maintain (wax) the strings. I also purchased a soft case for storing the bow, the Barnett rope cocking device, extra Barnett wax (3-pack), Barnett outdoor carbon bolts (set of 5) and a 6-pack of 125g Muzzy broadheads. I would highly recommend these items (or similar items) to anyone purchasing this crossbow.
In the end, I am thrilled I made this purchase. Is it overkill to purchase if you are not going to hunt with it? Maybe. But this crossbow is incredible!! You will NOT be disappointed with this purchase.
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.
The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I have just received it about a week ago, have it sighted and ready to go - no real history to report yet.

Would like it to be a bit lighter, but would not trade that for cheap construction.
