barnett crossbows are just like cva muzzleloaders,there are twice as many of them out there so you will see more with problems. i've owned both without any major problems.

Yup, there is a few semi-decent Barnett crossbows but...............for every Barnett that doesn't break, blow apart, or fail to work there are thousands that do.

i'm fairly new to crossbows but i purchased a Barnett quad AVI and it was real inaccurate so they took it in and put a new limb assembly on the front and it will shoot a 2 1/2" group at 45 yards every time--i like it--i also think when people pay around a thousand dollars for a unit they dont complain as loud

The only person I would complain to would be the dealer I bought it from,but then my brand doesnt seem to have the
problems that Barnett does,so I feel it was worth a little
more to get the quality I wanted.

Barnettxbows: I have a couple of questions. Why do Barnett crossbows break, fall apart, self destruct, etc, etc? Why do they have only a 1 year limited warranty? Why do the "new and improved" models continue to break risers and have other problems after supposedly being "re-engineered?
Last question; Why does Barnett continue to make and sell such junk?
