It shouldn't be unless there's something wrong with the front rest, or you're shooting non-OEM arrows.

You're being a bit literal. (Which I normally like.)
Hi HuntinBuddy62.

I am a relative xbow newbie and trying to learn something everyday or help someone when I can.
Not trying to be a smart-alec whatsoever.

I believe that Ravin technology was recently used on the CenterPoint CP400, which does have a rail and some have confused it for a Ravin:

If it is a brand new Ravin 10, I personally would not adjust the rests, if they are in fact adjustable, before contacting whoever I bought it from.
The Ravins are supposed to be all set to go from the factory, save for sighting in at 50 then 20 yards.

I am curious enough to ask how you can tell the that the cock vane is dragging on the rest, however.

Cheers,
dynamo61

I noticed a couple shots "looping" on their way to target, after moving to 50 yards. I looked and saw the cock feather touching the 'rail' that the bus slides up and down on.
Nothing in the manual, of course, that addresses this issue.

Yesterday I drove 40 miles to an archery store to handle the R10 they had in stock. But they had a Covid outbreak in the store so they were only letting one customer in at a time each for the archery and the gun depts.

There were 3 couples ahead of me in line and the couple just in front of me was getting the girl fitted for a compound bow. I waited 50 minutes outside and still had the same 6 people ahead of me.

I left.

Check to make sure that the nocks have not turned. Seems I read somewhere that this is what someone else found out. (this would be for the issue of the vanes hitting the rest)

When I took my Ravin out of the box the rest was on an angle. There's not much movement when you loosen it up but they sure arent a fixed rest. A little bit of movement can change your poi but I really doubt the rest is causing your vanes to ride or hit the rail.
