    Nothing, absolutely NOTHING, you do will make your bow anywhere as quiet as a vertical. That's because most crossbows are at least the pull weight of the former. Anything added to limbs or sting...

    But a used recurve, preferably an Excalibur. They are rock solid, easy to maintain and dependable. Plus have a transferable warranty.

    The little 320 is so compact that I was easily able to cock it while in a (one person) ladder stand. And so quiet that the two deer that were trailing my recent kill didn't spook when it went off....

    I'm thinking the STANDARD Slick Trick is most likely to hit same POI. Mags are a tad off for me and the Griz more so, both fly consistently (arrow to arrow) just not exactly like FP.

    Congrats, several recurves have been in my arsenal, now down to just three bows. Excal and 2 Mission 320s, all incredibly easy to maintain and fun to shoot.

    There are different strengths of ortho bands. Using the 1/4" medium strength on my Grim Reaper Whitetail Special (just to be sure) they work great, no sign of 'em on buck or arrow.

    The CLAW works for me too. Silent and stays on your shoulder. I mount it upside down, makes CB carry much easier.

    I've used threaded bolts with the head cut off, drill hole in both sides and epoxy horn together with bolt inside. Have even made sheds into mounts that way. Great story/. One of a kind experience.

    Parts may be an issue> Ten Point owns Horton rights now and allegedly is coming out with a re-make, unlikely that it will be cross-compatible.

    There are no aftermarket triggers for Barnett crossbows, to the best of my knowledge. Shooting them does often loosen the trigger a bit.

    For those who do, 2 gal ice cream bucket stuffed with rags is about as simple and inexpensive as it gets. Just tape the top on with, you guessed it, duct tape.
