Prices and reviews
The cost of the crossbow in the minimum configuration starts from 4500 rubles. When the maximum additional elements it rises to 9,500 rubles.
The owners of the crossbow noted that his power provokes something to try yourself as a hunter of wild boar. When equipped with a staff shoulders the distance of the effective firing does not exceed 30 meters. With reinforced – 50. The ellipse of dispersion of arrows at this distance fits in a square with sides of 10 cm, Many believe that the fuse box is too small. To move him, and not to shoot down the sight, almost impossible.
Technical characteristics – stress in tension and the stroke length of the string, the ability to install optical sight on the crossbow like a model. But that’s almost its twin brother (only difference is in the number of through-cutouts on the shank) is the crossbow Man Kung Yarrow Model F. It comes in a minimum configuration (two arrows, a simple optical sight mounted on the bar “dovetail”) and costs 4,900 rubles.
