Barnett has proven that the saying “less is more” definitely applies to crossbows.

The Buck Commander Extreme (BCX) crossbow from Barnett is a lightweight, compact speed demon ready for any situation a crossbow hunter wants to tackle.

At a blazing speed of 365 fps with a 13 3/8-inch power stroke, 118 ft. pounds of kinetic energy, 19 7/8-inch Axle to Axle and only weighing 7.1 pounds, the BCX leaves nothing to chance.

The Barnett BCX features an ADF (Anti Dry Fire) Trigger, a state-of-the-art mechanism that protects the user from shooting the weapon without an arrow in place. The patented Anti Dry Fire Trigger has a spring loaded redundant safety bar that remains in place until the arrow is seated properly, which finally allows the user to switch the safety off and shoot the bow.

The Buck Commander Extreme also features Barnett’s new CRT Carbon Riser, the most technically advanced riser ever created for a crossbow. It removes nearly 43% of weight from the front end, which dramatically shifts the balance point to the shoulder. This allows for the steadiest and most accurate shot possible.

A feature patented by Barnett, a Shoot Thru Riser, is a unique and sought after design that lengthens the power stroke of a bow without placing the cocking string beyond arms length. This allows for increased speeds and stored energy levels unequaled in the industry. FEA (Finite Element Analysis) testing enabled the design team to minimize the weight and maximize the strength, (a process used by NASA and now in Barnett Crossbows) making this technology truly a step above the rest.

The BCX includes a MIM (Metal Injected Mold) trigger, which allows for the tightest quality tolerances available. This accounts for the refreshingly smooth trigger pull at 3.5 pounds. The result is less jerking and ultimately tighter groups.

An integrated crank is available. Remove the cheek piece and install a new CCD (Crank Cocking Device). Integrated bushings in the stock provide for fast and effective install of the crank device.
