Cobra System K-8025 Self Cocking Pistol Tactical Crossbow
The Cobra System Self Cocking Pistol Tactical Crossbow (model K-8025) has an 80-pound draw weight and uses an easy and safe-to-use cocking mechanism. Manufactured with a strong plastic body and compressed molded fiberglass bow, this crossbow pistol's firing speed of 165 FPS is ideal for both small game hunting and target practice.
The self-cocking mechanism much more safe and far less strenuous to use. By simply pulling down on a pivoting arm lever, this crossbow's cable is cocked much more easily, even engaging the safety automatically. The speediness of the new cocking mechanism shortens reload time, allowing you to get off more shots quickly.
This package includes three aluminum arrows with metal tips and adjustable tactical sight.
- 80-pound draw weight
- Firing speed of 165 FPS (feet per second)
This 80 lb draw weight crossbow uses an easy and safe-to-use cocking mechanism. Manufactured with a strong plastic body and compressed molded fiberglass bow, this crossbow pistol is very durable and perfect for both small game hunting and target practice. Each crossbow includes 15 aluminum arrows with metal tips and adjustable tactical sight. With a firing speed of 165 fps, the 80 lb cross bow is great for hunting small game. The new self-cocking mechanism much more safe and far less strenuous to use. By simply pulling down on a pivoting arm lever, this crossbow's cable is cocked much more easily, even engaging the safety automatically. The speediness of the new cocking mechanism shortens reload time, allowing you to get off more shots quickly. Like all hunting weapons and gear, proper maintenance is essential in prolonging the life of your crossbow. With each use, elements of the crossbow can begin to wear. This package includes extra 80lb string, and an extra set of 15 aluminum arrows. These extra pieces will allow you more time to enjoy your crossbow without worrying about wear-and-tear or your bow's performance. We also recommend applying rail lube often to your crossbow's rail slide and wax to your string to decrease the friction that can hurt your string. It's also recommended to check the tightness of your crossbow's screws often as vibration can loosen them overtime.

DO NOT GIVE TO A CHILD. Do humanity a favor, and treat this like a weapon never a toy.
The bolt/arrow retaining clip is held to the bottom of the PLASTIC sight mount rail with a screw that is quite long and is part of the elevation adjustment of the open rear sight. To mount a red dot scope I had to clip that screw off with a side cutter as it cannot be removed without the bolt retaining clip also falling out. That clip is also an integral part of the safety so you would be best advised not to try to use the crossbow without it. The fact that this screw must be permanently altered for a scope of any sort to be mounted on the rail indicates that the rail isn't really meant for mounting a scope, it's an afterthought at best.
The plastic rail that a dot sight mounts to is only held in place by one screw and it can pivot enough on that screw that the sights will not be reliable without modification. I used a line of superglue on each side to secure it in place and centered and this seems to be working OK so far.
You HAVE to treat the string the same as any crossbow string if you want it to last. Which means you have to wax it with BOWSTRING WAX and use a rail lube on the rail and center serving or the string will fall apart after relatively few shots. This is exactly the same as this little crossbow's "big brother" hunting bows. I have a full size, full power crossbow so I already knew about this and had the proper wax and rail lube. Do NOT use paraffin wax, it's a petroleum based substance that will eat your string. In a pinch you can use genuine beeswax but real bowstring wax is the best bet.
It would have been a good idea to mention this stuff about wax and rail lube in the directions/instructions, which are adequate if you're familiar with this kind of thing but if not can be somewhat lacking in detail. If you look CAREFULLY at the instructions you can figure out how to put this together but even being familiar with such things I had a couple minutes of head scratching before I finally realized how things were supposed to fit.
With the dot sight I can group three arrows in about a 2 inch circle at 15 yards firing from a bench rest. I would say 15 yards is about the maximum effective range for this little guy because after that the trajectory of the bolt is increasingly parabolic and impossible to gauge. Silly claims about miraculous accuracy at 30 and 40 yards being achieved with this little crossbow are ridiculous. With my full sized hunting crossbow I can stack bolts in groups no bigger than an American Quarter Dollar coin at 30 yards. I have to only shoot three at a time before retrieving them so that I don't destroy expensive hunting bolts by hitting them with another bolt. That's real accuracy from a real crossbow being fired by someone who's been using this kind of gear for many years ... me. This little crossbow doesn't come anywhere close to that but it's a fraction of the cost of a serious full power hunting rig too. Just don't expect to be taking head shots on gophers at 50 yards and ignore anyone who says this bow will do that.
At 15 yards this will bury the bolts to the vanes or deeper in a crossbow target meant to stop much more powerful bow shots. That's a lot of penetration coming from this small prod. Power-wise this is pretty impressive all considered. I have a target in my back yard made of cedar siding that I shot with this at about 40 yards and the bolt buried itself down past the metal head in the cedar. That's about 1/2 to 3/4 inches of penetration on wood at 40 yards. At 40 yards the bolt dropped about 4-5 feel below the point of aim, so that's not really anything that could be considered effective range but the penetration was impressive even so. If you could hit a varmint at that range you would likely end it's varmint ways.
The bolts that come with it are fairly fragile, I ordered a 50 pack of the after market plastic bolts with metal heads. If I lose a few I'm not concerned. I fitted Rage Slipcam broadheads to the aluminum bolts that came with the crossbow. It was fairly easy to remove the metal head and epoxy a Rage Slipcam into the tubular aluminum bolt body. I don't know if they'll work or not but it looks cool as heck. I'm sure even if it works it's a one shot thing so I'm just keeping them around to impress people. Can't do that broadhead trick with the plastic bolts because they're not hollow like the aluminum ones. This will drive a bolt clear through a bunny or a squirrel at any reasonable range so the practical effect is that the vanes will act pretty much the same as broadhead blades as far as wound channel creation goes.
All in all, this is fun, has plenty of power for dispatching marauding bunnies in my garden and it's a blast to play with. I wouldn't consider it a practical weapon but it is a real weapon nevertheless. Be careful with this thing, if it will bury the metal tip in cedar at 40 yards it would also have no problem penetrating a skull if you let a bolt get away from you and go where it should not. This isn't a toy, it's a long way from a good and practical weapon but it's as far away from being a toy as it is from being a practical weapon.
I might carry this with me when I'm deer hunting with my full size crossbow so I can shoot rabbits, squirrels and game birds from my stand without scaring the deer off or wasting an expensive full power crossbow bolt. At those ranges it will most likely pin those types of targets to the ground ...
