Jager, check out this Wicked Ridge made by Ten Point, great warranty and customer service. It would be a big upgrade from your Parker without breaking the bank. It is last years model but it has the full warranty.

I purchased this bow in December and it was sighted in from the factory within a couple inches of zero at 20 yards so I zeroed it at 20 yards and the supplied arrows hit dead on at the 30 and 40 yard cross hairs with a 100 grain spitfire.

It even comes with the Acu draw system.

As I said before, there is no picatinny accessory rail under there on the Viper.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Pushing the button silences the click. There is no rail as in an arrow rest. The arrow is connected at the nock and rests on two rollers at the front.

If your referring to a rail to mount the quiver and crank handle there is a mount.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

There were some issues with string wear and some with serving wear. Go over to https://www.crossbownation.com/community/.

There is a lot of info over there and you can ask questions. A lot of knowledgeable guys are on that site.

I think they recommend using the button to cock the bow quietly in the owners manual. It is not much different than de-cocking the bow with the handle. You have to hold the button in. No big deal.
