Thanks, I am going to get one as at my age I don't need a very expensive one, I will update when I get it.

Thanks, Stant

Re: crosman sniper crosbow

Held one at LAS yesterday, nice xbow but a little heavy. Another post mentioned the trigger, while I did not shoot it the trigger was odd in that it had a long springy type pull. Very different from other crossbows I've shot.

Re: crosman sniper crosbow

I'm between the crosman sniper, pse fang and parker challenger for my daughter. I swore I would never buy a crossbow but the sniper may work for the both of us since it has an adjustable stock. I held a fang this afternoon and think it would be way too long for her. I stopped at the closest Dunhams and they did not have the sniper. I would like to actually hold one before I order.

Re: crosman sniper crosbow

I finally received mine, 1 inch group at 35 yards off bags,
My sister could not load it, long rope pull. Very impressed with quality of the bow. Trigger is a little long but not bad if you just squeeze. 350 fps with my 420 gr arrows.
I like it, but like everything else cars, trucks etc. You mite not, I would give it a 9 out of 10.
Good luck Stant

Re: crosman sniper crosbow

Glad you like it. I ended up ordering one sight unseen after reading several positive reviews. It is scheduled to be delivered on Tuesday.

Update....saw Dunham's ad this morning and they have the Sniper on sale for $249 today and tomorrow? I had a picnic on the other side of Pittsburgh so I stopped and bought one at the Monroeville store. I guess I'll be returning the one I ordered from Gander Mountain when it arrives on Tuesday (paid $299 through G.M.)

Re: crosman sniper crosbow

Shot it a few times with the bolts that came with it and they did ok. Ordered some black eagle executioners and they shoot a lot better. Only shot out to 30yds but definitely had to aim at different spots to not ruin the bolts. Being this is the only crossbow I've ever shot I have nothing to compare it to but am happy with it, especially at $249. The trigger is a little long, almost like shooting a revolver, but I'm sure I will get used to it.
