Worth the money! Review by Old Baldhead
Quality
Price
Value

I bought this mini crossbow pistol for fun and I was surprised at how good it's made! I found the plastic bolts on Amazon, 36 for $9.99 and they don't break like the Aluminum ones! I also lubed the string and rail with bow string wax and vaseline which keeps the wax on longer and helps cut down on friction better! I plan on buying another one!

Only problem it will misfire ,all you need to do is use a file a shave down just a little bit where the string cocks so it will stay put.After file I can bang it on anything and it wont fire unless safety is off.

Best value crossbow pistol Review by Lars
Value
Quality
Price

This is actually the best value for crossbow pistols currently on the market. The important parts are metal and the frame is plastic.

It's not quite as accurate as the metal frame version, but it's still fine under 30 feet. This is actually an improved version of the older plastic framed crossbow, it has an improved string, improved bolts, and improved sights.

I ordered this crossbow for my husband, but after spending several hours - off and on - trying to string the bow, unsuccessfully, even watching the online video, the bow string raveled out and could not be used. We drove down to Rural King, where they graciously exchanged it for another one. Unfortunately ... the same problem exists with the new one. Wish I would have known how difficult this product was to assemble, I would have passed it by instead of spending one and a half hours driving back and forth to exchange it, which it appears we will be doing again soon.

I just read the statements above, and I can guarantee that every one of those complaints of firing,or the string jumping from the cocked position, was because they weren't assembled properly! Again I emphasize....The instructions on assembly, stink ! Correct this and all will be well in Mudville!

The units themselves are really one heck of a value, and the quality of construction was way better than the price charged! The instructions for assembly, left many of my friends, whom I gave the units as gifts, just a bit confused! Fortunately only one issue was forthcoming! If not assembled correctly, that 80 lb string tension packs quite a wallop! Go at it yourself, with no outside knowledge, and you'll see what I mean. Over all.....Thanks for a neat piece of equipment!.....John C Thomas

The trigger safety is pointless because the bow string does not hold into place. This thing will MISSFIRE EVERYTIME!!!

Danger Review by John
Price
Value
Quality

This is a powerful and accurate pistol crossbow but it can MISFIRE at almost any time... Brand new, I assembled it and was shooting it for the first time. I was impressed by the power and accuracy but on the 6th or 7th shot, as I was placing the bolt in the loading position the bowstring slipped up and snapped my fingers and launched the bolt with almost full force. The safety was still engaged but there is nothing to prevent the bowstring from slipping out of the recess or if the bowstring is bumped from the string being released prematurely. I returned it as being too dangerous for my purpose which was for mid to older teens to use. The clerk told me that a family had returned it saying that a misfire almost hit their 8 year old when his brother was using it. Enough said... this is potentially very dangerous...

Pain in the butt to string. That aside I was very excited to get a small one handed crossbow. I shot it a couple times and was feeling good about it, then the string would slip off on a whim when I cocked it. Clipped my index finger good enough to have a nice blood drip. I wouldn't buy one if I were you. Look into something with a little more quality. I got lucky.

well built and fun Review by Mark
Quality
Price
Value

Nice construction that doesn't feel flimsy, even when cocking it. I have used it a bit in a short range that I have in my back yard. At 15 yards it will still completely bury the bolt in my stryfoam based target and I have to pull them with pliers. I've lost two bolts so far, but believe they are just second strikes on my target and buried too deep to find. Sighting in is an on going process, although I have it close now. It tends to shoot high because it actually has a bit of recoil, so two handed grip helps, wth one on the front grip and one on the pistol grip. Stringing it was a challenge until I found a good video on You Tube. Still required two of us in the end to get the string on. Overall really enjoying it!

This item appeared in an email. I did not even know these were available at Rural King. The price was great so I went for it. Great discussion! Very strong and pretty accurate from 40 - 50 feet. Ok, I was hitting a small sized book at that distance.
If it broke today, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one just like it.
PS Do yourself a favor and buy extra bolts. They tend to get lost. They were going through 3/8 plywood.

not worth it Review by james grimm

Design is flawed. Cocks easy enuf. But where the string rest is, is the problem. As you pull it to cock it the weapon the string drops behind the rail. When you pull the trigger it jumps up pulling front or weapon up. Its hard to compensate for the jump. Ive tried aiming low but still hard to even hit dart board and 12ft. Would not recomend purchase to anyone else.

Great product. Review by Stephen

The DX 70 pistol crossbow is a great product. I love target practicing with it. I have shot many bolts through it. (around 120 bolts on the first day after buying it) It is very accurate at 15-20 yards. The rear sight is well made for being stock. Wish the front sight was made from something sturdier. Wish there was a replacement bow string because it starts to unravel after (for the one I bought) the third day shooting it. Little glue or nail polish was a temp fix for it. It pack quite a punch for the size. The price is very affordable. Overall I give this product a A+ worth the $20.

There is a small design flaw with the cocking arms if you lose your grip while cocking. Nothing major no loss of life just the cocking arm will not stay in the rail afterwards. So be sure you don't lose your grip in mid cocking of the pistol.

Centering the cross member is a key to accuracy with this. Also sight adjustments pretty vague however the unit works well and is fairly accurate at the close range i practiced at. I got this on sale for less then $18 and it is worth the price IF the limb ends dont break too soon. Is quite a powerful little crossbow for the money. As others said the bolts will break fairly easy if shot at something solid so buy plenty of spare bolts. I plan to try this out on some slightly larger and more durable bolts in the future.

Awesome little crossbow to do some target shooting with. A lot more power than I expected. The plastic notch that locks the cocking mechanism to the frame broke off on the first day, but it is no problem if you have a solid grip on the handle. Bolts will break if fired into anything solid like a piece of wood or any hard material. This thing can do some damage if you're on the receiving end, so I wouldn't recommend this for kids at all unless supervised. Overall, it's an awesome piece and is definitely worth all of the $20 I gave for it.
