Am I the only one the hates new style forearm’s on crossbows? I tend to like the rifle stock feeling verses grip though or finger tips holes. I wish more companies would offer just plain rifle style forearm’s. I don’t mind the adjustable stocks.... but man I hate them forearm’s.

I agree. Hate the bulbous space age design forearms that tend to accompany crossbows lately. Some even come with all manner of wings to prevent you from being stupid. I'm a responsible adult, don't need the nanny state telling me not to stick my appendages in the way of a string traveling 300 fps or faster. Too bad there are so many sue happy irresponsible people out there. Ruins it for the rest of us.

Don't mind some of them that resembles rifle stocks with the smaller wings. Personally don't care for pistol grips and the really high grips though.

It’s the best feeling crossbow I’ve ever used......and I’ve used a few:p The grip and trigger guard are awesome too.

So how does the trigger compare to a Scorpyd on your R26? I have never shot a Ravin. I own a Scorpyd Aculeus, and a Mission Sub-1. Would your Raven be more similar to the Scorpyd or Mission? I was in a bow shop this fall and my 6 and 8 year old kids saw the R26 and asked if it was a bow made for kids. They were bound and determined I was buying it for them.

It’s small size and light weight would make it ideal for smaller frames folks, older folks and kids with close supervision. The cocking procedure and necessary safety precautions don’t fit in with operation by young unsupervised kids.

The Ravin’s trigger is located rearward, closer to the grip. You don’t have to reach way forward to get the trigger finger into shooting position. Its trigger guard is comparatively large which makes it nice for cold weather hunting with gloves on.
As to trigger pull, I would hesitate choosing Ravin or Scorpyd. I think both are good.
