I took the Jaguar crossbow I got for Christmas to the range to check it out after shooting .22s for a couple of hours with my son. Overall I was very impressed with this bow considering it cost just under $100 online. I was keeping all my bolts within a six inch circle at 20 yds with the open sights, I did not check to see how the red dot sight performed as my son was not feeling good after a doctor appointment. A conversation with the range master indicated that several people in the local area had gotten some of these budget crossbows around Christmas and overall had mainly positive reviews. My only negatives were that it seemed to need more lube on the rail after 5-7 shots. I don't know if this is normal as this is my first crossbow and there seemed to be a bit more string noise than expected. That might be an issue while deer hunting. Can the string on a crossbow be quieted like you can on recurves and compounds?
