To decock a Barnett crossbow, you will need to first find the cocking stirrup. It is located at the front of the crossbow right above the trigger. You will need to hold onto the cocking stirrup with your left hand and use your right hand to unscrew the bolt end cap. Next, remove the bolt from the crossbow and carefully set it aside.

Now, hold onto the cocking handle with your left hand and use your right hand to push the safety button. With your left hand still holding onto the cocking handle, slowly release pressure on the safety button while also lowering the handle towards the ground. When it is lowered all of the ways down, you can then release the cocking handle. The crossbow is now decocked and safe to store away.

There are a few methods that can be used to decock a Barnett crossbow.

  • One method is to use the cocking device to pull the string back until it locks into place. At this point, you can let go of the cocking device and the string will slowly unwind, which will eventually decock the crossbow.
  • Another method is to hold onto the cocking arm and gently push down on the stirrup until the crossbow uncocks.
  • A third method is to fire one or two arrows into a soft surface like a hay bale. As long as the crossbow isn’t cocked, you can then safely remove the bolt from the rail without fear of it firing.

  1. One way is to unstring the bow by loosening the screws that hold the string in place and pulling the string off.
  2. Another method is to use the cocking device to pull back on the string and release it, which will also decock the bow.
  3. There is also a third method where you can hold onto both ends of the crossbow’s barrel and push down on the plunger with your thumb while pulling back on the cocking device. This will push the bolt out of the firing position and decock the bow.

Whichever method you choose, be sure to follow all safety precautions when handling or using a crossbow.

For safety reasons, it is important to decock a Barnett crossbow properly.

To decock a Barnett crossbow, hold the bow in one hand and use your other hand to push the cocking rod in until it locks. Next, rotate the red cocking lever all the way around until it stops. The bow is now decocked and safe to handle. Always remember to unload your crossbow before changing its target or transporting it.

One way is to hold the crossbow in one hand with the bowstring facing away from you and use your other hand to push down on the flight deck, which will cause the string to move back towards the barrel.

Another way is to hold the crossbow with both hands and place your thumb on top of the cocking lever. Then, push down on the cocking lever with your thumb while holding the crossbow steady with your fingers. This will cause the string to move back towards the barrel.
