There is no clearance between the string and rail on my quad 300. In fact the tip ends are 1/8 inch lower than the rail. The serving wears out quickly.

Is this common for this particular xbow or does it need to be adjusted?

Most "all" crossbows are built that way to some extent or another.
The only modern bow I've seen that doesn't have a fair amount of string pressure on the rail / track is the Darton lineup. Their strings just barely touch the track.

Not too much you can "easilly" do except keep the serving/track waxed.

OR...if you have access to a mill...you can take the bow apart...put the track in the mill and remove a little material...maybe .090". Then reround the corners where the string rubs.

Might try using a tuffer serving material also.

Keep it waxed..

Thanx for the information. This is my first xbow which I bought new when Michigan legalized xbows for firearms deer season a few years ago. It has served me well.
