  1. Personal Protective Equipment for Shooting Crossbows

    Crossbow Safety and Education

    Excalibur Crossbows
    Hey guys, so I am an owner of several different chinese crossbows and now I want something with higher quality. Do you think the bd440 is great? I heard that excals often suffer from broken limbs and also the crank should only last a couple hundred shots till it breaks down. What do you say

    Excalibur Crossbows
    My xbow is an Excalibur. Is the lever's purpose to hold an arrow in place in case of tilting? If I was to need to tilt my crossbow at say a 45 degree angle to take a shot, how would this affect my desired point of impact?
