This simplistic design allows for easy hooking of the bowstring even for the newbies. The short legs make it effortless to draw with a rope cocking aid. Hunting becomes a fun endeavor, not a hard workout anymore.
The Excalibur’s length is relatively short- 31 inches allowing for a better grip and focus. As if that’s not enough, the manufacturers have included an X-hanger quiver that attaches to a Picatinny brace. The quiver is lightweight, offering an effective grip and quick detach. You also can fasten other hunting accessories on the Picatinny rail for increased flexibility.
Performance and feel
Every hunting enthusiast understands that an extra draw works magic with crossbows- luckily with the micro suppressor you get a draw weight of 280 lb. That’s an unrivaled X-bow power if you ask me. The bow is light and maneuverable. Weighing just 5.4 lbs., you can carry it around with you all day and feel fatigued. What’s more, the reticle on the scope can get to 60, allowing you to hit distant targets. And that is complemented by a high shooting velocity.
We know a familiar sad story of guys scaring off their prey when cocking their noisy crossbows. Luckily, that’s not the case with the Excalibur 1108709 E95857 Micro Suppressor Crossbow. With this piece of hunting gear, you get a fast, quiet and smooth cocking. Thanks to the rope cocking aid that comes with this X-bow. The arrows that come with this innovative hunting piece are lightweight, weighing 150 grains and a length of 16.5 inches. They are nontraditional stable and accurate, and you won’t find these arrows with any other manufacturer apart from Excalibur.
The Excalibur comes with new extra features that include the Guardian Anti-Dry-Fire system, which helps to block the string if the crossbow is fired without a bolt loaded. Also, there is a de-cocking feature that will prevent the accidental shooting of bolts when not in use. Finger grooves along the lengths of the pistol grip and on the fore-end are an excellent addition to enhance grip and control further.
Hunting features and accessories
For sighting, the Micro Suppressor comes with an illuminated—red and green—Tact-Zone scope with 30-mm aluminum rings. The Tact-Zone Illuminated Scope will take the stress out of aiming when you are hunting at dusk. This illuminated range is the best in the market, allowing for flexibility over speeds between 275 and 410 feet per second. Once you fix it in place, all you will be required to do is dial in your x-bows shooting velocity.
You will be able to get your scope narrowed correctly within six shots. And another thing, the Excalibur comes with an ambidextrous cheekpiece that allows you to better focus on your target on the range. The see-through, flip-up scope covers serve to protect the lenses from rain and debris.
There is also a Guardian Anti-Dry-Fire System to ensure safety and protection for the user. The sound deadening system will minimize the noise when you fire your shots. Even with a firing speed of 355 feet per second, the micro suppressor crossbow is utterly silent. Perhaps that’s why many people make this their weapon of choice when hunting.
The crossbow has a Recoil Energy Dissipation System (R.E.D.S.) which is a useful noise dampening feature for the vibration and also the shots. The system features rubber padding over the aluminum fixtures on the rail. Additionally, there is an Air Brake system that’s is fastened on the length of the limbs and limbs and limb clamps. That, together with an energy absorbing compound that’s been forged on the limbs material reduces noise by up to 8 decibels without inhibiting speed.
Sound deadening is enabled by shock binds that have been installed between the string and the limb. This design reduces the impact on the bowstring when shooting. In addition to that, there are two strings starts to reduce oscillation and a Recoil Ant-Vibration System for additional noise absorption.
