i just finished this target for my little crossbow. this is for fooling around in the garage this winter when my co2 guns are hibernating. i used those foam interlocking floor mats -- 2 pieces of wood and 4 threaded rods. from 20 feet away the bolts still go in 4 inches. this is a 80lb crossbow called the seeker. i put a reflex sight on it. very accurate and pretty strong shooter. good fun for the days i,m not going to shoot my non co2 guns. (double click for bigger pics.)

Good job on target. Been there done that with cheap crossbows. Lose the fun really quickly so I cut down a rail on one of my Excalibur crossbows and with strait riser it is 90lbs, two bolts and put on forward riser makes it 115lbs. Two different scopes so change over does not affect POI and it has pinpoint accuracy. Only reasonable shooting cheap crossbow is my Barnett Phantom JR that my Ggrandkids drag around with me. I do shoot it occasionally upstairs in my bow/pellet range.

Crossbows are not toys. I know alot of people with very bad injuries from them. Gun habit on a bag is to sometimes wrap your thumb over barrel. One friend lost his thumb that way with a crossbow. I had a rope cocker ripped off my neck. I never hang it around my neck since that time. Did not know blood can squirt out of ones body 8 feet away in a stream.


Have fun, Cheers!

Back to work! :lol: Your thread made me dig out my old Man Kung crossbow and give it another shot. Was going to give it away because of inaccuracy. Trigger assembly shifts. Try some JB Weld and new scope rings. Thank you. If one can not hit a dime size spot at 10 meters everytime it is not worth shooting. I have the 150lb limbs but bought 120lb limbs for it 4 or 5 years ago that I keep on it. Thank you. CHEERS!

that's a beauty . very nice. watch the rest of your digits. I don,t wan,t you mangling any more because I put ideas in your head. lol. a while back I bought a jaguar 150lb crossbow from Canada crossbow. It was a real beauty. i thought i was going to shoot it at the construction yard where i worked. but i never even fired it once and ended up selling it. get a roll of dime size dots and put some pics up after. (p.s. i didn,t shoot those bolts in the top pic. i just stuck em in by hand)

Six hours later, still shooting, new Excalibur 4X32 scope I was not using and got it a bit better. Still not happy considering I am used to my custom Excalibur indoor target bow and how it shoots but I will keep working on it. Mine came from Canada crossbow as well. Shooting Victory Voodoo arrows that the six are likely worth more than the crossbow is. But I had a dozen given to me to test a few years ago so I am testing them good now. :lol: :lol: :lol:
