Hey guys,

Just picked up a Centerpoint Sniper 370 last week (Walmart for $200USD). For those of you who have one and have modified it, what have your favourite mods been? I'm looking to get a new stock on it, maybe a Magpul. Has anyone changed the foregrip? Or any other parts! Let me know what you've changed and what's worked for you!

Thanks everyone

I got both of my stocks off ebay. Buttstock is a Fab defense knock off. Folding front for grip works great for me. Gives me more control when carrying or shooting the bow. It also can work as a rest. Throw in a better scope , limbsavers and a cheap tact light with a pressure switch for trips to the stand in the dark.

I also put a couple of these on the bow to make it more comfortable to grab the pic rail.https://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-...WHw66:sc:USPSFirstClass!30043!US!-1:rk:1:pf:0

Also added a easy to remove Bohning quiver mount for my Gopro. Have fun customizing to your liking

I would suggest doing the trigger upgrade that you can read about on this forum. I originally did not think I needed it, did it anyways and absolutely love it. Well worth the money. Scope would also be an upgrade to consider.

In order...upgrade the arrows to BEE's, do the trigger job, and upgrade the scope. You get these three things done and then the rest is all small potatoes.;)

Welcome to the boards. :)

Welcome to CBN and the best of luck with the new Sniper.

My suggestions would be these:

- Arrows and there are quite a few good options. Stay 20" and call Jerry at Tapp-Nation and discuss what he can offer. I just got his new Chameleon arrow with 110 gn double tap inserts and they fly very well. If you need to buy from a big box store I'd suggest TenPoint's EVO-X arrow then their Pro Elite carbon. This will be a $50-100 investment depending on your choices.

- Trigger fix which will change your trigger from needing 6 to 7 lbs of break pressure and 9/16" pull length to 3.5-4 lbs break pressure and 3/16" pull. The Do It Yourself kit is $85.

- Scope and if you like the multi-reticle style crossbow scopes like most of us do, find a good buy on one with "speed compensation" so you can finely tune the bow's arrow speed with the scope. TenPoint's RangeMaster Pro, Excalibur TacT Zone and Ravin's factory scopes are all good examples. You can find $75-150 deals on nice scopes in the classified's here and also on eBay.

- Butt Stock and the Fab Defense clones on eBay are good values and they have the adjustable cheek pad. About $35-40. Any tactical stock that fits a mil-spec tube will work.

- Fore arms but your choices are very few. The fold down works well and gives you many angle options. I've used the stock one, have the Specialist and Spectre factory styles and probably would suggest using yours for a while then maybe consider a folding one.

- I carry my xbow a lot and the sling matters. I use the Ultimate Gun Sling and like it and have also used the LimbSaver Kodiak which is made from a similar material as the UGS. I'd recommend both.

- If you are interested in a case, the CenterPoint factory case is nice and I saw it recently posted for $39.00.

- And if you prefer s side mount arrow quiver to the perpendicular one, I'd call CenterPoint and explain that and see if they will sell you the side mount quiver adapter. It will work with your existing quiver.

- Buy an extra string and the ones from CenterPoint are pretty good.

A closing note would be to make sure you buy a target that will stop you arrows without burying them. For field points the Morrell YJ-350 or 450 works well.

Have fun!

Rich, I just received my new Fab Defense stock like pictured above and need to drill a hold to glue in the sling stud. (Thinking JB Weld?!?) Can you post a pic where you drilled yours? Thanks.

I put mine just above the spring latch button. I used a stud that was made for composite or wood with the self tapping threads. I just drilled a pilot hole. From the pics I've seen Rich put his in the same place. I didn't use any glue. Not the best pic but you can see it.

Stalker is right on for the type of stud and location. I put these studs at 1.25" from the tip.

I drilled a small pilot hole to get a good center hole placement and angle, then stepped up a bit size and did a final third hole drill before screwing in the stud. You may find that the stud you buy has a threaded section too long and if so, you can simply shorten it by cutting or grinding it square. The butt stock material it threads into is plenty strong so you won't need any glue or bonding material to hold it.

Trigger kit, Trigger kit, Trigger kit, seriously this modification changes the baseline performance of the bow. 3/4 creep and 6 pounds trigger pull to 1/8 creep and 3 pounds trigger pull Switching the stock scope for a UTG 4 X 32 scope is the next best upgrade. Contact Rich for the best upgrade

I ordered the .50” magpul cheek riser. Had to intall it on the stock backwards, it sort of snapped on just enough and glued it on. The part was only @ $10 and it was the perfect height for a good cheek weld. Will add a photo if I can figure out how.

I don't see it as a buyable item. They are tan and green versions of tactical butt stocks but none in camo that I've seen. If you want it really badly call David at Wyvern. He can can dip it for you.

Did you try and see if this stud would work it may slide in the hole under butt stock then lower butt and install screw
