Introduction

More and more people are joining the world of archery, and part of the reason is that there are so many variations of the crossbow to choose from.

One of the most popular types is the pistol crossbow. Hunters love pistol crossbows as they’re so much easier to handle, and require a lot less manpower than a standard crossbow.

Pistol crossbows yield less power than other crossbows but are super easy to operate. They’re a great option for beginners and younger bowmen as they tend to be more simple and basic.

Although you’ll probably struggle taking down deer, this is the perfect crossbow for hunting small game, such as squirrels or rabbits.

This pistol crossbow fires arrows as fast as 165FPS, which is an ideal speed for hunting those smaller animals.

This crossbow is super easy to operate and maneuver. The 80-pound draw weight is easy to handle, even if you’re a young or petite archer.

It’s not just the low draw weight that makes this an easy bow to handle. The self-cocking mechanism makes this crossbow far safer and a lot less strenuous to use.

Simply pull down on the pivoting arm lever, and the safety will be automatically engaged. This is a perfect feature for beginners, as beginners are more likely to injure themselves while getting used to handling the crossbow.

This cocking mechanism noticeably shortens the time it takes to reload, which is a welcomed perk in any hunting situation.

This crossbow features an adjustable sight, which will increase the accuracy of your shots. As this is a weapon suited to hunting small game, the adjustable sight is a necessity.

This is a durable weapon, made using fiberglass construction for that extra sturdiness. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s indestructible.

Like with any weapon or hunting gear, regular maintenance is required to ensure the longevity of the crossbow. In time, certain parts of the crossbow will begin to wear down.

Luckily, this package included an extra string and extra arrows, so you can enjoy the crossbow without having to buy a replacement string.

To prevent the string from wearing down as much, it’s recommended that you apply rail lube as often as you can to your crossbows rail slide, and to wax your string. Friction is your crossbows enemy and can damage its string.

Before each use, it’s best to check the tightness of your crossbow’s screws. The vibrations can loosen the screws, and any loose screws can result in further damage or even injury.

Summary

If you’re a beginner, you’re certain to appreciate the easy assembly and how easy the AMAS Self Cocking Pistol Tactical Crossbow is to operate and shoot.

It fires arrows at quick speeds thanks to the self-cocking mechanism, and it’s also extremely quiet, which is ideal in any hunting situation.

If you’re an experienced archer, you may be disappointed by how basic the design is – but beginners are sure to love the simplicity.
