I think barnett has hit the mark with this one I got the bow, scope, 3 bolts and quiver and a cocking rope for $319 on fleabay. I was sceptic about it at first due to it not being on barnett website but I called barnett and confirmed that it is the real deal

Yep, I know, I have a good xbow now, only have 6 weeks of hunting left, wonder if the price will go down further yet in the spring. Not saying I'm really that cheap, but don't have to be in a hurry I guess. There are a few other things I could buy at this time and wait till after the season. It's a gamble wether the price will go up or down. I change my mind from day to day lol !!!Happy Trails !!! PS I will own one for sure, just a matter of when !!!

In my opinion the Raptor is well worth the $399 price tag but a Awesome deal for $321...I got mine for $321 free shipping who ever buys this Xbow will not be disappointed at all!

Definitely interested in the raptor but I would like to shoulder it. Price seems very good and all the posts I've seen have been very positive.

Sent out a statement to lovestohunt, to see if the recruit would be the same or real close, since I think the poundage and color is the only difference, I'm not sure, but if it is the case, you would be able to find a recruit to shoulder, may be a while to find a Raptor !!! just a thought !!! Happy Trails !!!

Anyone who has one can you tell me measurement from trigger to buttstock. I see online Lancaster supply has raptor package for sale $359 and I'm thinking about ordering it. HDMann thanks for the offer I live over in Eagle River.

If you are a fleabay user, a guy has them for sale $321.00, now he is at $399.00, but in a few days he will drop back down, maybe even lower. This guy will do this all the time !!! worth checking every day !!!! just a thought !!!! Happy Trails !!

From butt stock to trigger is 14"   Im 6,3" 350lb and it fits me just fine :) A1bargains on Fleabay jumps around on his prices from 319 to 399 just have to watch his auctions.Very good seller and you will still get the Barnett 5 year warranty on it.

The Raptor has an adjustable Butt Plate that you can adjust the length of pull. Shouldn't be an issue for you. My length of pull is 13 3/4" and there is plenty of adjustment left for length.  Delino
