The BC Raptor Reverse from Barnett Crossbow might just be the slimmest crossbow you’ve seen in a while (or ever) and weighing in at 6.4 pounds, might be the lightest too. Launching bolts at 330 fps with 97 pounds of kinetic energy should put that 8-point buck across the field well within your capabilities.

This is what Barnett Crossbows had to say about it.

Barnett Crossbows Offers the Raptor Reverse

Reverse-draw technology gives the BC Raptor Reverse a comfortable feel that other crossbows just can't match. By bringing the riser and therefore much of the front-end weight closer to the shooter, the reverse-draw configuration of the BC Raptor Reverse provides a much more comfortable and steadier hold than traditional setups.

Reverse-draw engineering also creates a much longer power stroke (15.375″), which allows the BC Raptor Reverse to produce more energy per pound of draw weight. This compact powerhouse packs 330 fps and 97 foot pounds of kinetic energy in a bow that draws at a pleasing 150 pounds.

Of course, as part of the Barnett family, this crossbow also incorporates top-end features like a lightweight Carbonlite riser, an adjustable butt pad, a CNC machined aluminum flight track, finger reminders and a pass-through foregrip.

The BC Raptor Reverse is also one of the most nimble crossbows ever created, weighing in at just 6.4 pounds. But where it really shines is the narrow width – just over 10 inches when cocked! This crossbow goes into the thick stuff where the Buck Commanders go and where giant bucks hide. It's at home in a treestand as well as a ground blind, where the narrow frame allows hunters more room to maneuver and get in position for a shot.

The BC Raptor Reverse comes with a premium illuminated scope, rope cocking device, a premium light-weight, three-arrow quiver and three 20″ Headhunter arrows.

This fall, take command of the woods like the Buck Commanders do – with a Barnett BC Raptor Reverse.
