Vent, are you referring to the PSE model? I know PSE outsources their crossbows, but I don't know to whom. I know CX is built in China, but is probably one of the best coming out of that continent. Native is built in the US, and I think most of the parts are mfgd in the US as well, but I don't know that they're 100% US sourced. That was my first choice, but they're so new that they don't have a website functioning yet, and they're selling so well here locally at the one place that does carry them that that place is charging a premium over retail MAP up to $100 since they're flying off the shelves so quickly (usually don't last a week). You walk in thinking you'll buy something like a Mission, Tornado, or Stryker, then shoot that for kicks, and fall in love...
If Native is around in 2-3 years, I'll have one hanging on my wall. For now the CX SLS is a heck of an upgrade to what I had, and will do just fine putting venison in the freezer. I've got no problem buying US goods, but they need to be competitive and reliable. I'll pay an extra $100 for that. Heck, like I said, in a couple years, I'll pay an extra $250 for that for the Native, they're worth it. Right now though, the company is young and the price isn't where I'd feel good about the purchase (due to the dealer). With 2 yound kids, I've gotta watch the budget. Being able to get the SLS and everything I need/want to hunt with it at the price that the Native bow alone would fetch (about $950), I had to make a hard choice. The dealer is finding plenty willing to pay a premium, so it's hard to fault them on that, but I'm hopeful that in a couple years others will carry their products and pricing will at least be at MAP, hopefully below.
Imagine WW3, NK nukes Japan and SK, we go to war to defend them, China and Iran back NK, and we've got a crazy WW, and we don't have the capability to so much as build the chip to guide our missiles. It's not a good picture of where we're at or where we're headed... I get it... Personally, I think everything should come with a country of origin notation and I certainly considered that strongly with my purchase here, looking at Excaliber, Ten Point, Native, Horton and Parker. They just didn't shoot as well as I'd like, weren't as compact as I'd like, didn't perform as well as I'd like, or were priced out of reach. (Excaliber Matrix too pricey and still pretty wide and crazy loud, Parker's trigger has a bit to be desired, and had noisey safety, Ten Point is just crazy pricey, and Native is just too young for the price that my dealer wanted for it, Horton has had part failures on reverse limb xbows.) Sometimes it just is what it is, but it was part of my consideration. For what it's worth, my old xbow is a Centerpoint Bristol, made in the USA.
For my new toy, I purchased:
Victory VooDoo bolts (Not Made in US, but it's really cool.. hopefully they'll move it to US if successful)
Gold Tip IV bolts (shafts made elsewhere, but final product is assembled in US)
Parker Red Hot rope cocker (most of their stuff is US based, not sure about this though)
Sims LImbsavers (made in USA)
Leapers Rail Guards (They've moved some mfg to US facility, not sure if this was currently made there, but likely)
Nocturnal lighted nocks (Made in USA unless they've changed that since 2011)
Pine Ridge Archery Whiskers (Believe they are made in USA, much of their stuff is)
So, even if my xbow wasn't made here, at least it's purchase prompted the purchase of other stuff that was made or at least assembled in the US, and purchased from US companies (Midway USA, Eagle Archery, Sportsmans Guide, Black Bear Sporting Goods, etc)... Keeping folks in the US working one way or another...
Anyhow, back on topic, how bout that PSE Smoke, neat adjustable stock eh? Wonder if it's fairly tight or rattles around like the one on the Parker Gale Force, hopefully it's not just another source of noise... The safety looks similar to a Darton, and you probably have to take your hand off of the stock to disengage it with how far back it's located. That's the main thing I don't like about the new Dartons.
