    That it is.. i have sen't the Ghost 410 and recruit to get some repairs done nothen to be alarmed about just a loose trigger on the 410 wrong emblem place on the side and the recruit has some butt stock issues with adjusting screws coming undone but with all that i love them i'm really shock by how the vengeance performance is and quiet it is as far as i'm concerned it's flawless i just have a problem with Barnett not telling us were going to be needing some cheap practice bolts i went threw 4 boxes of bolts and some i even robin hooded like twice some went right threw the bag into the other target. i'm all ready now all i need to do is sight in my Browning 30-06

    This thread was started a year ago when UL went to the Trade Show and told us about these.Well I purchased one in October and can tell you I am very pleased with it for the price.I have owned 4 crossbows all in the 300 dollar range since getting started a few years ago.1 Horton 1 wicked ridge and 2 barnetts ,one a jackal and lastly the recruit.The recruit is the only one I have left after selling off the other ones,Not that the others were bad,this bow just works for me and the way i hunt.The raptor would be like this one on steroids but they weren't out when I bought this.Many thought that as hooked as I am on these I would have a real expensive one by now.But the best thing is you can keep a couple real nice x-bows around for 600 bucks easy,they are that good!

    After getting my 6 year old grandson to shoot a youth sized muzzleloader last summer, and the fun we had on the youth hunt last September, plus hunting on Thanksgiving, I thought he could shoot a small crossbow easier than getting him to shoot a compound so he accompany me during the archery season and be able to humanely harvest a deer. So after a ton of research, I decided the Barnett Recruit compound package was pretty good based on all of the the positive reviews.

    Amazon.com had the package deal for $250, no tax, free shipping, 0% for 6 months, so I ordered it Thursday - got shipping confirmation it will be here Monday - can't wait. As soon as I get a Cabela's discount coupon, I'll order the Caldwell Deadshot Chairpod to help the youngster shoot it more safely - I might even use it myself!

    Just bought the recruit compound, very easy to put together, was taking shots in about half hour/ fourty five minutes. Getting red dot sight sighted in took maybe 7-8 shots. Went out hunting with it and it's light, easy to cock and I'm real happy I bought it

    I bought a recruit this year and love it. Awesome little crossbow. Got a fat doe the monday before thanksgiving at 35 yards. The red dot sight isn't my favorite but it worked out really well. I lucked up and the dots came out to be 20, 35, and 50 yards. That thing is accurate out to 50 yards too. I decided to go with fixed blades on it(Hartcraft Exchange) instead of expandables like my Barnett Predator.
