NcStar Crossbow with Red DotConclusion

When it comes to this weapon, it seems that you get what you pay for. While it can be used for simple target shooting and fishing, it cannot be used in hunting or a professional level shooting.

The price is cheap, but it is not that sturdy so you might end up purchasing another one after using it for a few times. If you are after a cheap bow then this one may do. However, if you are after the quality, you may want to consider other options out there.
