We recently received an email from one of our customers, and I would like to share with everyone here.
"Just a note to let you know that last evening I shot a deer with the MK-150A3TC crossbow
you sold me. Made the shot at 32 yards using a 15" 2219 tipped with a Scorpion XP mechanical broadhead. The arrow penetrated both sides of the deer but didn't pass all the way through. The deer only went about another 80 yards after that.
I am very pleased with the crossbow you sold me. It is light and compact, safe and reliable, and built like the proverbial brick outhouse. The trigger mechanism might not be as polished as some other crossbows, but I didn't pay $500 for it either. All in all you can't beat this crossbow, worth more than I paid for it.
The sighting system is slick. I mounted a 4x32 scope
on it and sighted it in at 20 yards on the 1st click. The 2nd click stays right on at 30 yards and the 3rd at 40. I didn't have time to check to see if the other clicks held their yardages as well, but I did take a couple of offhand shots at 50 yards that seem to be hitting about 5" low at the 50 yard click, but that could have been movement on my part. That's OK, shouldn't be sending arrows after deer at those yardages anyway.
I have another crossbow that is very large, powerful, very heavy, and it's a compound bow. I honestly like this MK conventional bow better, less tinkering and tuning I think, and it shot the same yesterday as it did the day before.
I suspect that there are some who, because of the price of these MK crossbows, might consider them a novelty or toy item, but I can assure them that nothing could be further from the truth. The deer I have hanging outside my cabin is just as dead as if I had shot it with my 30-06. Feel free to use this email as a product endorsement and if anyone has questions I can answer, feel free to give them my email address.
Later, I intend to buy your folding crossbow as a backpack/survival/hunting weapon. Will be looking for them to go on sale.Thanks again,"
