Deerfoot...did you see if Horton would replace your bow altogether? Maybe with another one of their models?
I didn't ask them. I would have been satisfied with the Bone Collector if I could have gotten one that worked. It is much quicker to let Cabela take care of the problem than to wait for Horton. Cabela would have sent me another Bone Collector or upgraded to another Horton model. They were also willing to upgrade to another brand.

From reading other posts it appears that a significant number of crossbows fail when they are brand new. This seems to be a problem for several of the companies. It is probably the nature of the product, because some defects in limbs, stocks and even strings can’t be seen until the bow has been shot a few times. This makes it very important to consider, as Tom Horne said, “what to do if everything goes wrong”. If you buy directly from the manufacturer, you are at their mercy. The same thing is true of internet sellers and some local retailers that expect you to use the warranty for initial defects. If you buy from a local retailer or mail-order store with a policy and a reputation for accepting returns and correcting problems you have double coverage. If you can’t work it out with the store you still have the warranty, it may just take longer and be a lot more aggravating.

That my friend is the inside scoop and how its done at most places. Choose your manufacture (or assembler in many cases) wisely.
