Parker crossbows going under.

I predicted this in 2012. It's sad because they had some great crossbows, before the split limb design. That marked the beginning of the end.

Sad, top notch equipment and great customer service. I only dealt with them when my Terminator fell off the tree hook and cracked the limbs while cocked. Sent replacement limbs in 2 days, no questions asked. Going on 11 years with that crossbow and probably 24+ deer with it.

This is a major bummer.I too received this shocking email.Heck,I just got one last week about their holiday specials.I need some capture nock bolts and some brass inserts.So I guess if my limbs break the bow is junk.I hope another company picks up the brand.What a shock.

Yes it is a shame. They had a good thing going for a while. I remember that you sold a ton of them on here right after the crossbow inclusion passed.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Got the same email, doesn't state the reason behind it unless I missed it? We have 3 of them. I know other companys stop production but another company took over as wicked ridge with tenpoint. I sure hope someone takes over to continue making Parker bow's, time will tell.


When i read the email, after it sunk in. Barnett still in business? They build the --------- crossbow's.
