Barnett is a leading name in the world of
crossbows. All of their main lines crossbows are made in US, and they
make both re-curve and compound models. When it comes to innovation, Barnett is the byword in the crossbow makers' industry. It has sold over a million crossbows in a span of 50 years; a testament to the company's claim that every new Barnett crossbow is built to be faster, stronger and better; not bad for a company which has risen from a hobby.
Some of the technology offered in their re-curve model is a red dot site of
adjustable intensity. This allows the shooter to adjust the target light
strength based on lighting conditions. Other technology is a built in cranking
device that makes it easier to load and cock.
Barnett crossbows are engineered to meet the needs of the avid hunter – as well as the novice archer, the expert marksman and the slingshot enthusiast. It was pioneered by the self-cocking mechanism of the Commando crossbow, followed by the first compound 'Demon' model, and the Quick Detach Front end feature which are found on every Barnett crossbow. Nowadays, Barnett crossbows are regarded highly for its power, performance and value for money; making it the top choice of people who are looking for weapons built for the kill.
