FX-II crossbow as a gift. Need help...

cpilericpileri Member Posts: 447 ✭✭✭
I dont know the first thing about bows (besudes the obvious, and my Archery merit badge in the Boy Scouts).
I am receiving one of those FX-II crossbows as a gift: about 50 bucks, 80-lb draw, comes with cheapie scope, etc. here's a link:

Any info appreciated. I suppose it will be used for target shooting old magazines/newspapers.
What should a new-to-bows guy know? speed? bolt weight? bolt length? etc.
Anything, literally, appreciated!
Thanks!
C-

    I can't tell you anything about it now --- however, after seeing it in your post, I have ordered one. We have not seen any rain here in over 50 days. I am watering a small grass area to keep it alive. The rabbits from everywhere come in at night to feed. The neighbors get excited if I shoot them with a shotgun at midnight. Hopefully, the small arrows (bolts) will do the work without alarming the neighbors. Once I have had some experience with it, I will try to post here again if the topic is still open.

    Best Regards

    Well, the package has arrived. But I can't open it until father's day.
    Did anyone else try theirs?

    Gentlemen -- all

    I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but mine arrived and I am sorry to say that it is an inexpensively made Chinese product.

    Since the folks at GunBroker take considerable umbridge at knocking a company or product, that is as much as I dare say in a public forum.

    Regards To All
