Description: Overview:

The very latest version of the worlds best selling pistol crossbow is based on the innovative Barnett Commando Pistol of the late eighties & early nineties. The Prophecy Pistol Crossbow is easy to cock and simple to use but it should not be confused as a toy. The Prophecy is very powerful and can release a crossbow bolt at high speeds over a good distance. Unlike full size crossbows, pistol crossbows do not require a lot of energy to cock, so many crossbow bolts can be fired in a very short period of time. The Prophecy is a break action, semi-automatic loading pistol crossbow having an 80 lb draw weight with a high quality wood-feel aluminum stock, adjustable rear sight, and bead foresight.

Highlights:

80 lbs draw weight
Arrows travel up to 165 FPS
6-4/5'' Power Stroke

Keywords: Pistol Crossbow, Self Cocking Pistol Crossbow, 80 Pound Pistol Crossbow, 80 pound self cocking pistol crossbow, Aluminum pistol crossbow, sturdy pisto

Bow and arrow Bow Crossbow Animal figure Machine gun

Ahhh. Marketed by many companies under many names.... Fun little gadget, and dangerous enough to anything in its sights. Might not drop an intruder in his tracks, but a shot to the neck would certainly slow him down. Lightweight, and Easy to modify. You can ramp up the power a bit by twisting the string and by adding additional resistance to the prod (another prod, a length of spring steel, etc), if you are creative with PVC or other materials you can add shoulder stock, forestock, tactical light clip, etc on the cheap.

Make sure you wax the string frequently, and be aware that power boosts such as those noted above will wear out the string and the prod more quickly. So be sure to obtain a couple spare prods, and a few spare string sets.
