I have the Sniper 370 with the trigger worked already, so not new to Centerpoint. I held a CP400 yesterday and feels great! Just ordered myself one. Does anyone know how to switch the arrow retainer to the brush style? Also which one should I order? TIA!

I think you got some of this info. from our Conversation Cory but for the sake of the folks here thinking about a CP400 and this same change, I'll add some detail.

Putting a brush on a CP400 or any of the 2019 CenterPoint bows made by ManKung is not terribly difficult. It takes time, a drill press and some special tools. Not pictured are vernier calipers, marking tools a drill press and bits.

I use TenPoint's brush (part number HCA-108). This is a high quality brush that should last a very long time. In many cases, the lifetime of the xbow.


I size the brush to fit each bow. In the case of the CP400, it means shortening the brush's plastic base to about 1/2" height. You need to locate it on the rail so it rides the arrow correctly. 1.25" to 1.5" back from the front edge of the rail is good. Centering it on the rail, drilling the mounting holes and counterboring is an exacting process.

This whole process takes me about 2 hours to do.

If you like to tinker, this is a good project.

Wow, thanks for the detailed head up! Maybe I’ll just save up and send it to you, I just hated the idea of the cost of shipping the whole bow. I don’t suppose there is a dovetail out there already meant for a brush that would bold onto the cp400...?

Not that I'm aware of Cory. The brush is nice but the trigger is much more important and that is as complicated to do and the bow is necessary.

Shipping isn't too bad if you pull the scope and butt stock.

I sent Rich a CP Amped a few weeks ago. I received it in the mail and took it to the post office the next day and had around 35.00 in shipping it to him. That was everything in the box like it came from the manufacturer.

Anybody have an idea what the scope that comes with the cp400 is worth? Brand new
The CP 4X32 illuminated scope is on sale right now for $52.49. They are $15 - $40 on eBay so that should give you an idea. You might just keep it as a backup.

Ok, thanks for the heads up. I’ll be selling it, only because I run a slightly heavier arrow and a scope with a single dot. On my sniper 370 I use the red hot pin point. I’ve never missed or made a bad shot, I love the added confidence of where I put the dot in where the arrow is going to hit.(range-dial-shoot). I may run the hha optimizer on this crossbow

OK! UPDATE: Got to shoot my CP400 today and I must say that I’m really liking it! Very accurate, easy to cock, and very quite. I’m not sure why some people are having cocking issues or chewing up their string, but I had no issues today at all with about 50 shots taken. I will be changing the scope as I am so use to a single dot scope that I dial for yardage that anything with multiples points just feels congested to me, however the included scope is indeed, very nice. Now for the one and only thing that isn’t great and will make me miss my 370 sniper is the worked over trigger! After a while I was use to this trigger, but it is heavy, and long, almost a two breath trigger as said before.lol. I’m sure at some point I’ll be sending it down to Texas but until then, it’s still a pretty amazing bow and I’m really enjoying it!!

It's a major jump up from the Sniper Cory and congratulations! :)

Take a look at the Sig Sierra3 scopes. That would be the perfect topper for your CP400.

Thanks bud! It sure is an upgrade. Contacted crosman the other day and they say mid January they will have the crank setup for the CP400. I’m thinking crank, trigger job, and scope I’ll be happy. For now I think I’m going to put my Parker red hot pin point on it.
