Assasin

Post by oldmandoug » Sat Jan 13, 2018 8:14 pm

Maybe I overlooked it, but does anyone know where you can order the new bow? My wife thinks she would like one and I can't seem to locate one.

Thanks,

There won't be a lot available immediately and all apparently spoken for. You are probably best off to pre-order with your favorite dealer. I think I heard that the main production will be shipping to shops in March.

I might add the new two stage trigger on the Assasin is the BEST crossbow trigger I have EVER squeezed.
They truly knocked it out of the ballpark.
I tip my hat to the Engineers who spent almost two years developing it.

Terry, to be honest I like to take my Excalibur out of the case with my rope cocker already on the string, ready to rock.

Even thought the stock appears busy looking I did not find anything obtrusive or uncomfortable. The adjustable features will certainly appeal to many the way I see it.

I'm with Norm. The bow shoulders and balances VERY well.

The balance point is just ahead of the trigger guard.

It looks too wide. Am I looking at it wrong?

It's not wide. Micro limbs.
This is a bow you have to shoulder and shoot to appreciate.
