The Premium Red Dot Sight
The Barnett Jackal crossbow is pretty accurate by its self but if it’s precision that you are looking for, you will find it hard to resist from using its red dot sight.
One of the benefits you gain with this accuracy device is the ability to keep both of your eyes wide open while shooting.
People who made actual use of the crossbow said that they were able to hit the bull’s eye 30 yards away.
What is astounding is that these reviewers were using a crossbow for the first time, with skill and years of experience you can obviously shoot your arrows a little bit longer.
The package includes 3 20 inch arrows in a quiver and the premium red dot sight. At this price, the jackal actually sells for much less than it is worth.
It rated 4.4 after 114 customer reviews which is enough proof of its quality and performance.
However, you should note that this bow is not available or cannot be shipped to some regions which have the restrictions on weapons.
Some of these include lube wax which will be used to prevent the string, cabling and other frictional objects from wearing out.
If you intend to shoot several times, you might strike an interest in the Barnett made outdoor 20 inch carbon arrows with field points. Another important accessory would be the crossbow case which will be useful in carrying your hunter weapon.
Bottom line, the Jackal is a low priced crossbow which matches the quality and look of some high priced counterparts.
