I have ordered a Barnett Whitetail Hunter II and rail was not straight and Amazon sent me a replacement and it is worse than the first one. Should i just cut my losses and maybe get center point specialist. Or send it back for repairs. Both were made in China. Web description was made in USA. I hoping to finish archery season out with a crossbow rather than my compound.

Contact Barnett and ask them where their Barnett Whitetail Hunter II is built as they are showing it on their website when you select "Crossbows" and then scroll down to view various series and models. It is shown on page 2 of their website. If they question you, just explain where you purchased your crossbow, where it was made, (where the Amazon website listed it as made-U.S.A.) and what has been happening. Nothing to lose.

If you wish to stay with Barnett, the 2018 Barnett Droptine STR can be set up to be a very accurate crossbow. One has to check to make sure the cams are level in the uncocked position and the picatinny rail may require a shim at the front to make it parallel with the rail-stock. I purchased mine from Lancaster Archery and provided feedback on their website how I made the corrections.

Wishing you all the best.

Thanks for the reply, I started to get the wicked ridge ultralight. But the guys at Dicks recommended Barnett. So I ordered Barnett. I really like the looks of the ts370. But this is my first crossbow. So I will call Barnett Monday morning.

I have nothing but fantastic things to say about the Barnett TS-370 as another option. What is your price range? TS370 selling on Ebay for $306.

Ts 370 is a really well built and designed xbow. Every brand has their winners and their losers . this is barnetts winner, not their fastest but I believe it to be their most solidly reliable. Light weight ,pretty narrow, adjustable length,trigger tech trigger( and it is zero creep 3lb pull) and bushings instead of bearings, aluminum rail. This is also a good looking rig.

Looked at the ts370 loved the adjustable stalk, definitely going to be my next thing after first of the year. Liked the aluminum rail.

You see this Xbow in person it's a high dollar Xbow with fit and finish features that is being sold at an affordable price.

Good luck if you go this route.
