Ok, all, self included, let’s get serious and keep this one almost all business! Duke, you can post 1 picture a day but no comments on that picture allowed except for likes.
‘Seriously, let’s get back to business at hand.

Enjoying this thread so far:- ) Being a Ravin 26 owner for 15 months now, I’m looking forward to shooting the also compact XP. Guess who’s coming up the lane as I’m pecking away on this IPhone? Yep!!

Mine arrived a 3pm. It is nicely packaged with not much chance of damage. I will have to set the scope plumb tomorrow and hopefully start shooting and posting some pictures. I will start with the scope that came with the bow. It really seems to be a decent scope clarity wise and I will check to see how bright it is. Mine has blue and red illumination. I am surprised at it is blue and maybe that is an error on the vendor side but blue seems to work well. It will eventually wear a Vortex Viper HS 4-16 X 50 scope for later work.

Most of ‘em are on their 3rd or 4th, Don. Still haven’t figured it out! 😝.
Looking forward to your thoughts on the new rig.🤙 Be nice to have less class clown action, for a change.😎 Would have more appeal, IMO.🤙

Ramrod and I will be spending time together with this XP. Have lots to learn about this Innovative crossbow.
As Boo said, it certainly is nicely packaged.

I know you love your R26 and that's good. But, the XP has 7 more inches of power stroke and is only 1" longer.

Jeff, I like what I see so far. Looking forward to spending time with it. I will also be learning from SEW’s vast knowledge of these crossbows.

Guys with the SWAT XP. IMPORTANT NOTE HERE.
The way I designed the release, you WILL NOT be able move the Safety to Fire unless an arrow is fully loaded. B U T
After you cock and load an arrow and you move the safety to Fire to take a shot and then decide not to shoot and you then push the arrow load lever to release the loaded arrow to maybe load a "de-cocking" arrow to unload the limbs, you can pull the trigger and dry-fire the bow. So, prior to removing any loaded arrow, PUT THE SAFETY BACK ON "SAFE" FIRST and then you'll be OK.

How bout a close-up pic of the new nocks..
Scared me … as I was reading because as the sentence unfolded I thought you were looking for a pic of OLDFLYER's package! Fortunately it was about nocks, not nuts. 🥴
