CenterPoint Sniper 370 Crossbow Set Camouflage Overview
Sniper 370 is a quality crossbow at an even more attractive price. Won the OUTDOOR LIFE MAGAZINE 2016 “GREAT BUY” award! Many satisfied users who recommend this model to all amateurs and professionals of shooting and hunting. Cope even with large animals in seconds. We recommend this crossbow to any hunter on a budget or anyone buying their first crossbow.
The crossbow is compact enough and easy to carry over rough terrain. It is 21.5″ wide uncocked, 18″ cocked and weighs 7.9 pounds. When carrying, it will not burden the back and cause discomfort. Moreover, the set includes a shoulder strap, with which it is even easier and easier to carry the crossbow. And its accuracy will easily hit the victim directly on the target, giving her no chance of salvation.
In the package, you will also find: a 4x32mm scope and three 20-inch 275-grain carbon arrows with 100-grain tips. This is enough to get the first experience of shots right out of the box.
The instruction manual that comes with the crossbow is not very accurate and clearly written. Therefore, if you’ve ever assembled a crossbow before, you shouldn’t have a problem. However, if you are a beginner, we recommend setting it up with a local bow maker. Well, or in detail and carefully study the video review of this model.
Power and precision
Thanks to its quadrupedal arms, this crossbow propels an arrow flying at 370 pounds per second. A pulling weight of 185 pounds delivers powerful starting impulse, while precision CNC cams provide smooth, consistent travel. Built-in string suppressors ensure quiet, vibration-free shooting.
Already in the first training session, you will be able to send arrows to a target in 4-inch groups at a distance of 60 yards. If shooting accuracy is very important to you, replace the standard scope with good optics with multiple magnifications. This crossbow works like a tank and it takes practice and effort to achieve sniper accuracy.
With a pulling weight of 185 pounds, which is quite good, this could be a problem for the platoon. However, the included cable cocking device makes it simple and as safe as possible. The thread pulls back very smoothly and leaves almost no wrinkles. In addition, the pulling weight for cocking is reduced by 2 times, which allows the archer to not have the power of the Incredible Hulk.
What hunters can expect
Hunters can be calm and determined. This crossbow has enough strength and accuracy to prevent your prey from hiding. According to the calculation tables, your comfortable distance for a fatal shot at the big game (moose, deer, bears) is 40-50 yards. This crossbow will strike a smaller game from a greater distance. The only limitation is the optics and accuracy of the shooter himself. Considering that the crossbow is almost silent, this is the weapon of real ninjas.
The Sniper 370 is equipped with a 4x32mm scope with multiple reticles. It’s not a top-notch scope, but it’s not rubbish either. The sight is easy to aim and holds zero almost always. Has 5 brightness levels and a calibration kit for distances up to 40 yards. The CNC-machined aluminum rail provides precision shot after shot, at speeds up to 370 frames per second.
The crossbow comes with three 20-inch 275-grain carbon arrows with 100-grain tips. They are suitable for target shooting and hunting. But you can always find better crossbow arrows than the ones that come with the kit. Therefore, by purchasing higher quality arrows, you can fully unleash the potential of the crossbow.
It is very important not to use lighter arrows for 2 reasons. The force of the shot throws out a heavy arrow just as successfully as a light one, but the residual energy has nowhere to go and it goes to the destruction of the shoulders and strings of the crossbow. The second reason is less important but affects the accuracy of long-range shots. Light arrows lose energy faster and long-range shots can be picked up by the wind and fly past.
Drought protection and auto-fuse actuation components help prevent potentially dangerous shots. Blank shots are very dangerous for a crossbow, so cock the crossbow if you have already chosen a target and are definitely going to shoot.
Classic one-year limited warranty. Also, remember that the string is not covered by the warranty, so take good care of it and wax it regularly. If somehow the wax is not there, even a simple hygienic lipstick will work as a lubricant. Your main enemy is friction, if you decrease friction, you increase the life of the string.
It is a strong and powerful crossbow capable of realizing all your hunting talents. It can work successfully right out of the box and doesn’t require any required extras. Anything you buy additionally will only improve your wielding experience and increase the lethality of this weapon.
When buying this kit, we recommend that you definitely order additional bolts and more professional optics for really sniper hunting. But agai, this crossbow is good right out of the box.
Remembering my past, I ask in bewilderment: “How am I alive after all my adventures?” - harsh trials, reckless parties, love affairs, and a sea of silliness.
My hobbies are weapon upgrades, tactical gear, and the latest in wilderness survival technology. I have hundreds of different survival gadgets in my collections, which are sent to me for "test-driving" by Amazon, eBay, and other online retailers. That's what I write about, and I also make YouTube videos about them! Stay tuned!
