First Look: TenPoint Siege RS410

posted on January 5, 2021
TenPoint has released the Siege RS410 reverse-draw crossbow. Delivering 410 fps from a platform measuring only 26.5-inches long and 7.5-inches narrow, the Seige RS410 also offers safe de-cocking with the ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system.

The short length is accomplished with the development of TenPoint’s 16-inch Micro-Trac barrel, and ultra-light, two-piece Tec-Tactical stock. The fluted aluminum barrel also reduces the flight-deck surface by 50 percent, increasing accuracy and providing string life in excess of 1,000 shots, while the new stock features a tactical-styled buttstock, as well as a hollow pocket that houses the ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system. In addition, the stock’s buttplate extends 1 inch (in 1/2-inch increments) to provide shooters a more customizable fit, combining with the RangeMaster Pro Scope to yield proper eye-level alignment.

The Siege features a patented reverse-draw bow assembly that draws the string through the riser, creating a 13.5-inch power stroke. The increased power stroke generates more speed with less draw weight, creating a smoother, quieter shot. The elongated power stroke also keeps the arrow nock engaged with the string before release; this is a critical component in performance, as the longer the nock remains engaged with the string, the more accurate the crossbow will be. In addition, this center-mounted riser adds balance, eliminating the “nose heavy” feel of traditional crossbows and making it easier to hold steady and more accurate.

To produce the aforementioned speeds of 410 feet-per-second, the RX7-Cam system rotates 360-degrees. Also a factor, the crossbow’s Vector-Quad cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two, which eliminates cam lean and generates straight-nock travel, to improve accuracy.

Finally, the Siege RS410 features the company’s S1 trigger. This two-stage, design features a roller-sear system that delivers a 3.5-pound pull. The trigger is equipped with a DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor), and is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow-retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to reduce noise and vibration. An integrated string-stop system is also included to further reduce noise and vibration.
