Re: Parker Bolts?

The "Capture Nock" is Parker's solution to improper indexing on the nock against the string which was causing alot of partial dry fires. It is safe to shoot either half moons or Captures. If shooting half moons out of any bow, it is essential that the shooter is absolutely sure the string is sitting where it should against the nock.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

This! I have personally seen more than a few xbows that the owners swore weren't dry fired, but then stated that they never made a habit of checking the bolt to make sure it was secure to the string prior to firing or after walking with the bow loaded, etc.. Even as litlle as 1/4" of free space is enough to allow the string to over accelerate and cause an xbow to dryfire. I am to the point now where, like with checking the frizzen on my flinters, I constaly check to make sure the bolt is securely snug against the string, even while just sitting in my stand. A quick backwards swipe with my thumb ensures everything is right where it should be.

Re: Parker Bolts?

dpms,Thanks for the info.I learn something very important.I also did something very stupid with my Parker,Forgot to put a bolt in! Safety system work,But the nock didn't sit on the string. So i re-cock the cock string,Everything was back to normal.

Re: Parker Bolts?

I have capture nocks on all my bolts for my enforcer, they reccomend them so I use them. also good to always check that the nock is seated against the string like stated above.
