Barnett Recruit 100 Crossbow Packs Big Features into one Small Package

Recruit 100 (Large)New for 2015, Barnett launches the perfect youth hunting crossbow – the Barnett Recruit 100. The all-new Barnett Recruit 100 is specifically designed to fit the smaller-framed hunter and offers enough adjustment to grow with that hunter.


This crossbow was specifically designed with the young hunter in mind. Every factor including draw-weight, length of pull, and weight has been taken into consideration to create the best all-round crossbow for young shooters. The perfect size for young hunters, the compact Recruit 100 is easy to handle while still providing enough speed for the hunt. At 256 fps and 58 ft. lbs. of KE, this bow can take down any game the hunter chooses. Best of all, it achieves these impressive numbers while sporting a draw-weight of just 100 lbs.


The adjustable butt stock gives the shooter the option to keep the bow as he or she grows while easily making needed adjustments. Of course, safety is a priority. The Recruit features the same 5-1 safety system and trigger system as the premium Barnett bows.


A feature patented by Barnett, a Shoot Thru Riser, is a unique and sought after design that lengthens the power stroke of a bow without placing the cocking string beyond arms length. This allows for increased speeds and stored energy levels unequaled in the industry.


Barnett’s high-energy cam system and CROSSWIRE string and cable system contributes to a faster, quieter, more precise shot. The CROSSWIRE ®string and cable system blends Barnett’s fibers with the industry’s toughest serving materials, ensuring the shooter has the most stable and reliable string in the industry. The ADF (Anti-Dry-Fire) trigger system eliminates unintentional and costly dry fires. The system also boasts a 3.5-pound trigger pull and a revolutionary crank attachment built into the stock, allowing for the easy installation of the optional crank-cocking device. Thanks to the crank-cocking device, the shooter will never need someone else to cock the bow for him or her.


At a price of $299, the Recruit 100 will not doubt make the new hunter in your life happy. The package includes:


  • Red Dot Scope
  • Lightweight Quiver
  • 3 20” arrows
  • Rope Cocking Device
  • Lubewax
