Bump for anyone might wanting more information. I put my first efforts in building something that'll knock down a t-rex. Michael was using factory arrows but a better scope. Same bow, different set ups. Side by side I was impressed how much the heavy arrows quieted it down.
I like the set up with factory arrows. Think it definitely made yours a little more quiet. I bought the killer instinct speed ring scope and also very pleased with it and the clarity of it. Using the g5 striker Montec fixed blade. Shooting that deer this weekend I had solid straight pass through and buried in the ground deer left an awesome blood trail as well. For a cheap fast hard hitting crossbow I’d recommend it
I'm getting a repeat fetching glue failure/damage. Always on the fetching the goes in the rail. I bought a new set and will keep an eye out for it on this set. Just posting in case anyone else is seeing this happen with factory set up.
