First Look: Excalibur Assassin 400 TD

posted on February 3, 2020

Excalibur’s Micro crossbow line now features the new Assassin 400 TD. The “TD” in the name stands for takedown, and the Quick-Loc Technology system allows the limb assembly to be removed from the stock and then reattach with the push of a button.

Accuracy is maintained, yet the bow can be packed for transport or protection. New High Output Express Limbs send arrows off the rail at up to 400 fps. A Pro-Short frictionless, two-stage trigger and TACT-100 illuminated scope help with accuracy and consistency.

Features include:
• Tact-100 illuminated scope with 30mm rings
• Pro-Shot trigger
• Anti-Dry Fire System
• R.E.D. suppressors
• Sound deadening system
• 4 arrow quiver
• 4 Pro-Flight 16.5ʺ premium arrows
• 4 100-grain field points
• Integrated charger with Fail-Safe strap
• Explore case

The Assassin 400 TD measures 20.5 inches wide when cocked and weighs 7.9 lbs. It has an MSRP of $1,799.99. For more information, visit
