I have owned quite a few Hortons and still own a couple. They have and continue to serve me well. But I really like my TP Phantom and BowTech DS Is Horton going to come out with a Top of the Line CB to compete with the DS and Phantom's????
i just got a used xl175 that the serial number has fell off or been removed
my question is how can i tell if its a recalled bow or not or if its been fix already
i got it from my cousin who bought it at basspro in MO, in the clearance store
but he cant remember when(what year) he bought it.. it has been shot 5 times and never been hunted with ... his kids started playin ball and he ran out of time to bow hunt ... so he gave me a gr8 deal or i think he did i pd $250
i posted pics to help identify if its a recalled bow or if basspro sent it in for the recall before they sold it...
any help would be gr8
That is awesome!!!
I am new to crossbows. I have purchased a Horton Summit 150. Can you tell me the best bolt specs to use with this crossbow.

Question on teh triger for my Horton HD 150 Simmit corssbow.
I resently baught a Horton ND Summit 150 crossbow. Other then the 2 real loud noises it makes when I load teh string using the horton crank devise it is a dream mashine.
But I do have one question on it. In reference to teh triger. Granted it might be my missguided perception but this triger feals like it is well over 10 pound triger. I thouhgt it was suposto come with the telon custome triger. But I am maybe quessing that even thouhg it is listed on the box as having the custom triger is it maybe listed since its a upgrade one can get for it>? Is there a way to tell if the triger on this particualr bow is the custom talon triger or the reg triger?
In case it is neaded serial number is w 67417
If it does ahve the talon triger is there any way of lessoning the powndege on it or remover some of the travel it has? It acts like a 2 stage triger.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
noticing the washer under the limb bolt tells me that it not on recall
thank you very much !!!!
What kind of lube, ''oil'', do you recomend for the cams.
You do not need to lube them however if it makes you feel better use something with telfon in it. Do not use WD40 it is bad for archery equipment.
My son, a friend and I have been trying for the last 3 days to get this new real tree 175 to shoot broadheads accurately with NO success. I'm using Horton aluminium arrows that came with the xbow, we've tried several different heads, muzzy 100 and 125 gr- 3 blades, slick trick 100 gr.and my friend even brought some muzzy 125gr. 4 blades over this afternoon and they wouldn't fly good either. At 30 yds. same arrow will hit high 6 inches then next shot low 3-4", then again it might be 3 -4" right or left. We're even shooting off a bench with sand bags. I've turned the nocks so the cock vane rides perfectly centered in the channel and nothing helps. This is terribly disappointing, I already had to cancel a hunting trip up north this weekend because I wouldn't have a clue on where the arrows might hit if I did a shot opportunity. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this problem.
Make sure your server string is centered correctly after you have cocked. If not it will cause you all types of issues, shooting left then right. Mark you server from each side of the rails, when you have it in the cocked position you can pull back on the string and move it left or right to center the string. Hope this helps.
Thanks Rick210, yes we did all that, it doesn't make any difference.
It sounds to me like a scope / sight issue. Do you have another scope you could take off from another bow and try it. At 30 yards from a bench, that bow will shoot a fifty cent piece almost every time. Also make sure all of the screws and hardware holding your sight on are tight.
Thanks Urban Legend, we've checked, double checked and triple checked every screw and bolt on this thing, everything has been fine. I don't have another scope, wished I did have, thats the only thing we can't check.
If your hitting a 50 cent piece consistantly at 30yds. what arrow and broadhead are you shooting, because we've tried several different BH's and we're lucky to get it to hit inside a 10" circle twice in a row at 30yds. and I'm shooting the aluminum arrows Horton sells with these bows.
