Ive bought a Sniper 370 yesterday. I want to see what the hype is about this bow. Some of its features I like are adjustability, arrow retention system, CNC barrel, and being able to let it down with the rope cocker. Centerpoint keeps producing them, and if I'm correct, they only upgraded the new models with the silencing system. It will be at my door on Monday.

Boys and their toys!

Yes, it seems like it will never break. I love the bow but hated the factory trigger. Now with the trigger upgrade from Rich, I really love how it shoots!
I agree. Rich is THE MAN!;):)

Does the rope cocking claw on the left still hit the ADF lever boss about the time it finishes cocking? Yuk!
You will want to replace the supplied arrows.
For more just search the forums. There is plenty out there!

Yes, it does. I've sanded it down a bit on the left hook, and cock the bow with hooks down. It seems to work better but still hit the lever. Any advice?

Yes! Matter of fact I took a 1/4" rat tail file to the left claw and modified it so it misses the lever boss. It was in my mind a design flaw.

Also Make sure you get those cables crossing on the left side of the rail.

Got the MK-XB52 (the un-branded original from Taiwan) some month ago, and at least the rope claws have been modified. No marks at the ADF lever yet.
Besides of the creepy trigger, only the rattling buttstock is left. I tried to bolster it with masking tape, with unsatisfying effects.

They cross on the left side thanks for the tip.

If you want better wear with less friction you can round the sharp edges on the cable slide insert to make radius.. You can also tune it so cables don't rub each other as they cross. A small rat tail file with will do. Make sure the slide insert stays lubed.

JH,
It is a little hard to see but I enlarged the photo of yours to see the cables on the left side where they slide in and out of the insert. It appears there might be some fraying there. FYI! Check it out.

Hi, no fraying what I think you see is wax. I waxed it good and did not have time to rub it in. String and cable wear is not that big issue for me, I build my own strings for my crossbows and will probably change this string and cable after this season.
