Barnett Adds 4 New Crossbow Models to Core Family

posted on October 28, 2014

Barnett has added four new models to its popular Core line of crossbows: the Brotherhood, the Raptor FX, the Lady Raptor FX and the BCR Recurve.

All four of the new models feature lightweight composite stocks and CNC-machined 7/8-inch Picatinny rails. Each also comes equipped with a "finger reminder" for shooting safety, plus the company's Crossfire String and Cable System.

The new Brotherhood sports a draw weight of 160 pounds and can deliver 109 foot-pounds of energy while shooting a bolt at 350 fps. It features a lightweight Magnesium STR Riser and a high-definition camouflage pattern.

The Raptor FX and Lady Raptor FX have 150-pound draw weights and share the same design, which includes custom composite limbs and a high-energy cam system that's designed to throw bolts at 330 fps. Both come in a camouflage pattern, though the Lady Raptor incorporates pink.

The BCR Recurve is a more classic design that can shoot a bolt at 345 fps. It ships with an MSRP of $199.99 and includes a premium Red Dot Sight and a three-bolt quiver with three 18-inch Barnett bolts.
