Picking the Right Mini Crossbow

NcStar Crossbow with Red DotA mini crossbow / pistol crossbow can be really fun to play around with. There are a lot of options available all with different FPS (feet per second), draw weight, sights etc.

There are several advantages that pistol crossbows have over regular sized crossbows such as increased maneuverability and faster movement. They are also significantly cheaper. Where full-sized crossbows can retail at $500-$1000, you can get a great pistol crossbow at $25-$50 (some as low as $10-$15 if you are ok with something that will not last very long). If you plan to hunt small game or gifting it to younger people, pistol crossbows are perfect! The best thing, however, is that you can shoot one-handed! Meaning that you can go double crossbows!

Best Rated Crossbows for 2015

best rated crossbow for 2015Crossbows have come a really long way, especially during the past decade. The technology and materials used to build these weapons are nothing short of incredible. The design has also been improved upon in order to increase accuracy, durability, and efficiency. These short-range hunting tools have also become more popular among marksmen and people who just want to have a little fun without actually needing a gun permit. Choosing the right crossbow can be difficult especially if this is the first time you are looking to buy such an item. Most crossbows have similar features but are set apart by things like weight, versatility or price. We have taken the time to go through a long list of products which are currently top selling items. We have taken into consideration key aspects which are found only with the best of crossbows. A proper crossbow will set you back more than $250 so you should make sure it has all the basic features needed in order to feel you’ve made the right choice.

The first thing you usually get with a top end crossbow is a nicely balanced body which has a lightweight design but can still offer stability. That balance should be achieved through great craftsmanship and not by using cheap materials.

The second point which needs to be checked off the “must have list” is material quality. A professional crossbow should not incorporate plastic parts. Top end crossbows are made out of carbon fiber.

One other thing worth thinking about is that just like with many other pieces of hunting equipment, you get what you pay for. Don’t be cheap as some products which are under $100 tend to deteriorate or even stop working after a short period of time.

Last but not least consider the noise levels. Crossbows are built and used to offer a less noisy alternative to guns. There is no point in buying a crossbow which will always give away your position. This is mostly a feature for those who plan on using the crossbow for actual hunting.

Here are the top 5 crossbows you should consider:
