easy to assemble. Self cocking feature makes it much easier than pulling the string but still requires a good hold down and some exercise on the last inch. Installed sites and without adjustment was able to come within 1" of bulls eye from 50'. Adjustment looks easy. Very impressive product at a reasonable price.
Very solidly made, looks very nice - scope is awesome. Have not fired it yet at the local outdoor range, still waiting for it to warm up some (currently it is Feb 2016) The self stringer that was sent with the cross bow was wonderful, but really didn't work since it is made to fit a full sized crossbow. The loops of the self stringer are too large to fit into the end nocks of the pistol cross bow, they just keep slipping out - but loved to get additional item. Great pistol crossbow for a reasonable price. I ended up using a backpack that I had gotten from Dell for an XPS gaming laptop to use as my case for my 2 pistol crossbows so I don't have to take them apart each time I put them away.
I thought that I would like the red dot sight, When it came it was missing the battery. when I figured out what size, I realized that I didn't like it so I switched it over to hard sites. i love the crossbow it self. It was very easy to assemble, very easy to cock and fire. The stringer was to big so I ended up making one out of paracord and that did the trick. If this one breaks I will buy it again but with hard site instead of a red dot.
This is the perfect tool to put in your bug out bag. You can carry a lot of the bolts for this crossbow in a small amount of space. This crossbow has enough power to take down small game and could also be used for self defense. I have replaced the fore grip as the one that came with it was not to my liking. I will also be replacing the scope with a better one.
the "spring arm" on mine broke.
i have been searching high and low for a replacement, as i was a dissatisfied customer, but to no avail. it shot well during working condition, and i would happily change to a 5 star if some replacement part assistance was provided.
