Horton or Parker?

My friend is looking for a crossbow and for his price range I reccommended the Parker Buck buster 175 (with Scope and quiver) and the Horton Legend HD 175 (Scope, quiver and some extras) The parker can be had for $527 and the horton for $509. I thought I heard that Horton is having some troubles or not making bows. Not sure what is true. Any suggestions or help in him making hi final descision would be helpful...

Re: Horton or Parker?

In that price range the Buck Buster package is tough to beat. Great customer service if you would ever need it.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Horton or Parker?

parkers limbs are life time garenteed... i know for a fact.. and parker are one of the few that you don't need to wax the rail

Re: Horton or Parker?

The Parker buck buster is a great bow. Very small, accurate and one of the quietest xbows I've shot. Used to have one before I bought my excalibur.
