Barnett Recruit Terrain Crossbow, 330FPS Product Review

The accessories included with the purchase of a Barnett Recruit straight out of the box are;

o Rope cocking device
o 4×32 Scope
o Light-weight quiver
o 20” Headhunter bolts x2

This offering from Barnett comes with single-bolt assembly, making assembly intuitive and quick, with little requirement to consult the manual.

The Recruit can be purchased in both recurve and compound variations, a nice offering of choices from Barnett, both are available in a Tan color or matte black. With a draw weight of only 140lbs, the included rope cocking device makes loading this crossbow a breeze, with the option to use a crank cocking device available.

One of the big selling points for this model is that it features Triggertech technology from Barnett, leaving the trigger feeling frictionless. As long as you aren’t snatching the trigger, this will improve your accuracy quite noticeably.

Built for youths and bowmen of smaller frames, the stock is adjustable, allowing the Recruit to grow as you do. Wax included with the original purchase is an excellent addition, Barnett recommends waxing the bow-string every ten shots, to prolong its life.

Standard safety features are included here, with anti-dry fire and automatic safety on board to ensure safe practice when in use.
