Re: Horton Trigger

Read your manual, it says:

When properly cocked the trigger safety automatically engages and the safety lever moves to the "Safe" position. However, after cocking, check that the safety has moved completely to the safe position by pushing the safety bar toward the "Safe" position. NEVER ASSUME THE SAFETY IS ON

Re: Horton Trigger

It could be that your safety spring is about to fail. I've seen this several times on the Hortons. The arrow retention spring and safety spring is all one piece. They will start to do that just before they break.

Re: Horton Trigger

Usually doesn't cost too much (under $10) to get them going again. If it is the arrow retention spring and it fails it would cost more though. The bow has to go back to Horton for that as they won't sell me the parts to repair it.

Re: Horton Trigger

Stackem... I honestly don't beleive that for a minute. Ten Point....5 weeks... C'mon. Early last year (01-01-11) you said that one of your buddies had a Parker and you wrote: "parker is a good bow i know guys that missed half the season because they could not get the fixed"

I had dealings with both compaines in the peak of the season. Both had return times of less than three days.

You a Horton dealer/rep? I saw that earlier this year you had more than a few Horton Visions listed for sale.

Horton has made great progress in customer service in the last two years. So has Barnett. It's good to see that competition has brought about this change. In the end, it's the consumer that wins.

Great to hear you got you bow fixed up quickly. Horton, along with Barnett have picked up their customer service lately. That is a good thing.

Hearing that Parker is under going many changes lately. Remains to be seen how that pans out for the customer. Excalibur and TenPoint still lead the pack with customer service.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
