Help with an older Excalibur

Postby Scotty_X2 » Sat Apr 15, 2017 3:54 pm

I just picked up this Wolverine crossbow. My first bow was a Phoenix so I am not too familiar with these older models. Can anyone help me with the specs on this? Was curious about the speed, draw weight and even the year this xbow was made.

Thanks

It looks like the limbs have been replaced . The original ones had silkscreen name on them .
I am going to say made between 1990 and 92 .
Poundage was around 150 pounds . Used a Dacron string because of the carved tips . Would do around 225 to 250 depending on the arrow combination used .

Although it will kill deer all day long, it really belongs on the wall.

Limbs aren't what they are now and are very hard to replace if broken.

Could you put mag-tip limbs on it?
