So I have an acquaintance that has a Ravin R10 that he bought brand new in July or August. He shot it 6 times at the dealer. Now it is sitting in the box still wrapped from the dealer. He is willing to sell to me for $900 for the crossbow and everything it came with. $850 for the bow and rest in shipping and fees. It is unregistered as well.

So what do you guys think? A week before the ATA show, is this a good deal? Should I hold off? What would you do? I do not "need" it at this time. Just if it is too good to pass up, then I will get it!!

Thanks,

Decent deal. I recently bought a R10 shot very little with Ravin sling, Ravin limb silencers, Ravin serving lube, a dozen Ravin .003 arrows, Munchmount crank handle relocator, quiver and scope for $850 shipped.

It's a great deal but I'd still hold off for a week to see what Ravin is introducing for 2020.
Looks like from the Ravin facebook pics, the R10 is still available for 2020 but I would bet they'll have an electric crank system. I imagine if it's not an electric crank, it's an electric jackplate because they are showing a lithium ion battery warning label on their shipping boxes.
Of course, this is just a guess but we will see very soon.

I would hold off and see what is at ATA, and it is a fair deal but may not be after the ATA. Your only talking a week and you may regret getting it because something better is right over the horizon.

That lithium ion warning label could be for the scope battery maybe.

A lithium ion battery would only be used in a scope if the scope required more power than required to illuminate reticles. In other words, a night scope or a ATN like scope with integrated video or better yet, a scope with a built-in rangefinder would need the extra power that lithium ion batteries can easily provide.

If money is no object wait but you will pay over twice that for the new Ravin 2020 latest and greatest. The R10 is a good bow.
