They all look like junk. Even the ones with "good ratings". Seems like the serious hardware is in the normal crossbow category.

I have always had one or two around backyard fun. Avoid the self cocking ones, as they are not very robust.

It's tough to get power from a regular crossbow... the pistols are a fun toy...

Shoot #2 pencils at empty cans....

suggestion- buy used... lots of people buy a crossbow- shoot it 10 times... then sell 5-10 years later


$40 for a parts source
