Details

The Barnett Jackal Crossbow Package w Red Dot Sight 78404 has all you need whether you are a beginner or an old pro. The Jackal's innovative stock design is unique to our crossbow line up. Its sleek military style stock is lightweight and compact with a divided foregrip for comfortable hand placement. The quad limb assembly is combined with high energy cams and a synthetic string and cable system producing arrow speeds of 315 feet per second. The combination of the lightweight stock and the power this bow delivers makes it a devastating weapon for any hunter. The Jackal delivers the power and features of a "high priced" bow at a price that makes this crossbow an excellent value for everyone.

Technology:

This crossbow features Barnett's ADF MIM trigger providing for a smooth 3.5 lb. trigger pull and the added benefits of a picatinny rail. The MIM trigger is metal injected molded which allows for the tightest quality tolerances available. This results in less jerking and ultimately tighter groups.

This ADF (Anti Dry Fire) Trigger is a state of the art mechanism that protects the user from shooting the weapon without an arrow in place. The patented Anti Dry Fire Trigger has a spring loaded redundant safety bar that remains in place until the arrow is seated properly, which finally allows the user to switch the safety off and shoot the bow.

The package comes complete with:

  • 3 Arrow Quiver
  • 3 Arrows: 20" Arrows by Barnett w/ field points (100 grain)  and moon nocks
  • Premium Red Dot Sight

Barnett Jackal Crossbow Review by vic moore

Price
Value

Rural King was very easy to deal with, the crossbow I got was a real value, as I'm new to hunting with a crossbow, I thought this would be a good place to start. I'm not to sure about the Red dot scope, I have plans to replace it with a different type of scope. I can only hope it shoots as good as it looks. thanks Rural King for such speedy delivery.

Over all Great Croos Bow for the money Review by Phil Teetor
Price
Value
Quality

I think most people will not be able to cock the 150lb crossbow without a cocking rope device, so it would be better if Barnett included it in the kit, especially since no crank device is available fro this bow. I agree the bolt reatiner is a weak link, bolts fall out easily, plasic holder should be metal/plastic so tension can be put on it adequietly. I too have weak eye sight so I plan to replace the red dot scope soon.. However, it was very easy to zero in the crossbow on the top dot for 20 yards and bow shoots very accurately. Haven't tried it futhr out yet. I recomend tis bow for a starter, like me, but if you are going to use regularly spend more $, get a bow that a crank cocker can be added if desired...As you age, (65yrs old) it gets harder to pull cock... For th price it's a great, powerful crossbow.

Awesome crossbow Review by Todd
Quality

This crossbow is great and accurate.
Although I don't care for the red dot sight.
My eye sight is not as good as it used to be and was hard to sight in the red dot pass 20 yards.
So I put a Horton scope on it and at 40 yards it is dead on.
Haven't tried it at 50 yards because I wouldn't be shooting any thing that far out.
But you just cannot go wrong with this bow.
I've probably fired it 200 times and there is barely any string wear showing.
Great crossbow!!!!!!!

this is a sturdy, solid crossbow. Shoots with so much power that I had to build a new target to handle it. Very good safety features as well. The scope is very well designed for this crossbow. I am really having fun with it and look forward to doing some serious hunting with it as well.

Only issue I had was over tightening the head bolt which made the cable come off the flight rail. Snug the head bolt down and give it a quarter turn only. The Head Bolt is the bolt that connects the bow to the stock. Other that that this thing is a Monster...........

Very well made. Great trigger and safety system,FAST---our test showed much faster then stated. Heavy, for being a lighter then ave. crossbow.
The arrow retainer is a weak link, plastic (but strong)no ajustment for pressure or alingment(flex to ajust). The red dot sight is in my opinion, is pretty much junk--no instructions for yardage - I set mine at 20-30-40, 40 yards shot a little high more like 45 yards but arrow flight fell off 8" at 50 yards---I am going to replace it.

gets the job done Review by matt

This year is the 4th season I have hunted with my jackal. It is a good general use bow, but I am now looking to upgrade. I have 3 issues after four seasons 1. draw string started fraying last year. 2. quiver snapped of while trying to remove it. 3. The guide that holds the bolt i place does not function properly. The bold wants to fall out all the time.

not a bad starter bow, but I now wish I had spent $100 or $200 more and got something a lil better.

I bought 2 of theses crossbows for my grandsons. I have owned crossbows in the past and presently hunt with a compound. The crossbows allow my grandsons to start bow hunting much earlier than with a compound bow. I put these two bows together and mounted the red dot scopes. Went together easily and the quality of the bows seemed to be very good. overall I am very happy with the items I received, they were shipped super fast and beat the price of the big name hunting stores by about a hundred dollars each, plus free shipping. I would highly recommend Rural King to anyone!!

I have bought several products from Rural King and have been very happy with the company.I first bought an SA sport Fever crossbow,my first from another company and it was okay.I started looking at the Barnett Jackal and when I found it at such a good price at Rural King I bought it. I'm very happy with this crossbow and how it performs.The only small problem I have incountered is after a few shoots the bolt that holds the bow to the rail has to be retightened.

The Jackal Crossbow is everything someone would want in a "whole package" introduction to crossbows. Was leery of the red dot sight, but find it is great. The only thing I added to complete the bow was the purchase of a cocking rope. It made pulling the draw string a lot easier. I am truly impressed in what I got for the money.

I did a good bit of research on the Barnett Jackal Crossbow package. When I got ready to make my purchase Rural King had the best price anywhere. I had never heard of Rural King but decided to give them a try. I am glad I did. The crossbow was exactly as described and I am very satisfied with my purchase. Rural King undersold a well known brick and mortar discount store by $80 on this product. That is amazing.

This crossbow is by far the best one for the money. Built tough enough to hunt with. Rural Kings price is the best around, and their order processing was grade A. Only drawback is Barnett built this on a new style stock which does not except a hand crank.

It is a great crossbow. Had difficulty putting it together because nothing was said about the plastic string guide until I had it put together. So I had to take it apart and get it back together with the white plastic guide. This took 2 of us to get it back together.

I have wanted a crossbow since I was a teenager, but this is the first for me and I love it. I am 71 years old, so I need the rope cocking device to get it cocked. Even if I were 40 years younger, I would use the rope because it applies pressure evenly at the correct places on the string. The Jakal appears to be well made and is amazingly accurate. I needed only 6 shots to get the Red Dot Sight set for shots of 25 yards, then consistently hit the "bulls eye" thereafter. Not bad for an old guy.
