Red Dot Sight for improved accuracy
A red dot sight is a non-magnifying reflector sight that provides an aimpoint in the form of a red dot. This Armex sight uses a red light-emitting diode (LED) at the focus of collimating optics which generates an illuminated dot that stays in alignment with the crossbow.

How to use a crossbow
Crossbows are powerful weapons that have been used for centuries. Using a crossbow is considered simpler than using a bow since the crossbow mechanism allows the weapon to be aimed much like a rifle. Learning to use a crossbow does require simple preparation whilst observing safety precautions.
To start using the crossbow, first draw the string up until it is locked in to the firing position. Larger crossbows use a cocking rope or a cocking mechanism since the string requires a great deal of force to pull back. A pistol-style one handed crossbow can be cocked more easily as some models have cocking levers integrated within the design.
Once the crossbow has been cocked, check the locking mechanism to be certain the string is secure. Remember, a cocked crossbow has a great deal of force, even unloaded. Crossbows do not use arrows; they use bolts and each bolt must be seated properly for safety and to fly true.
Although a crossbow can shoot a bolt over 100 yards it is more common for shots to be taken within a distance of 20 yards. Aiming a crossbow is the same as sighting techniques used to aim a rifle whilst compensating for wind, distance and general conditions.
Try not to pull on the trigger harshly; simply squeeze the trigger gently whilst maintaining a steady breathing rythem, this may take some time to perform correctly. The bolt leaves the crossbow at incredible speeds and with great force, so be certain of the shot before taking it and try to avoid areas where the bolt maybe lost.
We recommend using a straight tip bolt for target practice and pointed tips for hunting, bolts with extreme hunting tips may penetrate the target too deeply.
