Would you buy a used Horton 150????

I have a buddy selling his Horton bow as he bought a Ravin ($$$$) and I am looking but they went under so no parts or service?

It is only $300 for the crossbow but ....I can get a new crossbow for $500-600 with a warranty?

Thanks

300 seems a bit pricey, but who can say without a picture?

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

I would never spend more than $100 on any of the Hortons manufactured by the old company that is no longer in business. That old Horton 150 I would not spend more than $50 as they were inexpensive bows even when they were new. If there is a problem, you basically have a useless piece of equipment. Horton Crossbows was resurrected under the TenPoint family tree and those bows are warrantied by TenPoint.

As far as what new bow to recommend. I am partial to the Wicked Ridge line, manufactured by TenPoint, at that price point. Still an American company with great customer service. Yes, you can find cheaper bows out there, but most will be manufactured in Poe Lang Taiwan or China.

My Horton 175 was appraised for a trade in at $175. The 150 was a "lower" model. Personally i wouldn't give more than $150 in very good to excellent condition.. The Horton was a good crossbow. Had a 150 for 8 years, and a 175 ever since, and it still shoots great

I gotta go agitate the techies!

Bought a Horton off a guy here probably 10years ago. Killed a bunch of deer with it. Wouldn’t be afraid to through $150-$200 at it
