The arrow retainer sits about 3/16" above the rail. Should it be closer to the rail to hold the arrow better? I see some that are touching the rail when at rest and i don't want my arrow working forward and me not noticing it and possibly have a dry fire situation.

I've had no issues with arrows moving on my Patriot. The arrow retainer's factory setup holds the arrows very securely on my bow.

That's about right. Finger retainers vary a bit. Cock it, load an arrow, point the nose of the 415 at the ground and jerk the bow backward a bit and see if the arrow slides out. Apply more tension if it does.

It's what I did with both my crossbows. (y)
