Thanks for the reply .
I know its not the most popular crossbow due to its length and weight, but it is still a fantastic piece of engineering.

I agree, the 15i is a work of art. you really have to get your hands on it and shoot it to appreciate it. After that the length and weight don't seem to matter as much.

Being from the UK where hunting with crossbows and vertical bows is illegal all we can do it target shot so length and weight don't really come into it when you have your crossbow on a bench / rest trying to make a 75 yard shot !!!

Its a cross we all have to bare over here in the UK, we can hunt but we have to use guns; either pellet guns (airguns) or firearms but not bows of any kind.

Dave, I've heard a few rumors, but did they give any real information as to why the delay in the release date?
March 17th, 2013, 03:10 PM
Thanks for the up-date David.... I can't wait to give you my money for an "Elite"; Im just surprised that PSE haven't come forward with a release date.

Elite update- there are a few new videos on YouTube about the Elite. Looks good. They said it has a better trigger, a bubble level on the receiver, thicker and wider limbs, and the cocking sled is captured in the rail. I hope they release it soon.

any updates on the release date?

Other than the few videos on YouTube, I haven't heard anything new about the release date. I hope it's soon!!!!!

They are really dragging there heals on this one. It will be June soon, Im actually thinking about something else.
Does anyone know the actual reason for such a late release date ????
May 19th, 2013, 09:14 PM
Yea I agree, they really are dragging their heals. Makes me feel that there are problems that they are trying to work out. What ever the delay is, they are very secretive about it, and it may wind up costing them some sales.

What's the difference in all the PSE tac models ?
May 27th, 2013, 10:04 AM
Dogmann, there are only two versions of the Tac for 2013. The ordnance and the Elite. The ordnance fits on an ar15 lower, and the Elite is a complete unit. Before these, 2012 and earlier, it was the Tac 15 and 15i. Basically they are the same just a few upgrades for 2013. If they don't get their s#~t together they will have to call them new for 2014.

The trigger has not changed. It is accurate but heavy. We sell and install a competition, after-market trigger set at 3 #.
They said it has a better trigger
Here is our review article on the TAC Elite and Ordnance crossbows - review. We shipped our first batch of Elite's to our customers.
