Mine came with 4 arrow top mount quiver and no adjustable trigger
Trying to understand your expectations. What do you mean by adjustable tigger? I've not read BearX offers an adjustable trigger. Is there information out there that states that. Can you explain what is an adjustable trigger? How would that work? Doing my research before buying I never found that information.

I read it as OEM offers a 3" trigger pull. I had mine tested and it was at 4" break but I didn't read Todd's post that the user can adjust it. Maybe it's me but that is how I read it.

Length of pull ?? Trigger to butt ??
I have this Xbow. I'd say 1/2" with a 4lb break. This trigger can be modified to 1/8" pul and 2.8lb break however, you will void the warranty. So if you do this it's your xbow. It think this is not that bad for man kung upgrade. It feels soft but the travel is there if you used to something much shorter. At this price point it's not bad for OEM trigger.

Now that hunting season I've been out shooting this Xbow a good bit lately and gotta say this is a tack driver. I'm flat out drilling 3" circle at 60 yards. Great crossbow.

I would have to agree. Using the three bolts that came with it and shooting 20 to 50 yards for me it has been very consistent.
I did change out the scope to the same one that is on my HyperGhost 425

Yea, I picked up a Excalibur speed scope for $30 dollars (new), older model, non illuminated off of Ebay that is ranged out to 60 yards. Best glass I've used on a Xbow scope and I've owned a several speed scopes. FOV is so clear with that scope. It's noticeable! Deadly accurate if I do my shooting process correctly.

I don't know how BearX is providing such a narrow limb scope that shoot the fast and at this price but kudos to them. If you don't want to break the bank this is one heckuva a deal.

Hello All! First post here. I just got home a couple of hours ago with my new Bear X Constrictor. Gotta say for the little time I've had to play with it I am loving it.

I zeroed in on 20 yds with the factory scope. It was almost spot on at 30 yds. Made a one click adjustment for windage and elevation. Moved to 40 yds and it was way off. Even more so at 50 yds which is the last reticle on the factory scope. I know if I make adjustments for 40 and 50 yds it's gonna be off again at the closer yardages. Barring some suggestions from you knowledgeable folks I have a Hawke scope I can put on it. Just Hate to take it off of the other crossbow and have to start from zero again.

Zero at first reticle at 30 yards and learn your drops. Between 20- 40 yards. Will take time but that is part of the fun.

Other option is is to zero at 20 then step back until you find the yardage for the next retinal. Do that for each reticle and you'll have a good yardage reference point with the scope.

Bear does make a speed scope and there are other speed scopes that will be spot on at 20, 30, 40 yards, et, all.

I sure like Constrictor! Crazy to have such a narrow Xbow at such a great price. Good luck and enjoy!

Thanks for the reply. I may just go ahead and put the Hawke on there anyway. By the way, I purchased a Center Point CP400 this past Saturday. Paid the $799 for it. Carried it home and what a disappointment. Serving was unraveled in less then 20 shots and the trigger pull on that thing was a absolute nightmare. Fortunately the archery shop I purchased from took it back with no questions asked.

He had just gotten the Constrictor in this morning and had just put it together when I came in. Sure wish it had been there when I went in Saturday.

Farm Deer is machining a solution. I think he's converting a CenterPoint CCD systems that fits on the ButtStock tube. Both the CenterPoint Sniper and BearX Constrictor have same to similar rail stock design made my Man Kung. Stay tuned Farm Deer will have a viable solution. The man is machinist with the special expertise in design and manufacturing.

He's doing something similar for me for the BearX Intense with the KI silent DSC CCD as well. Worth every penny to me.
