I think the only good point about the Chinese 50 lb Draw Pistol Crossbow is that it is cheap enough for someone who want's to get started on shooting a crossbow pistol for the first time to see if he or she likes the sport enough
to continue and get something better. Other than that ,I don't think it has any good points. Bad points are: 1. It's cheaply and poorly made. 2. It's plastic. 3. The bow string
is the poorest quality they could find. 4. the arrows are not any better. 5. You... (read more)

I bought the Chinese Draw pistol crossbow because everybody i talked to said it was accurate. I thought it would be cool to shoot squirrels with while deer hunting. Its very fun to shoot but it does not shoot the same everytime. I cannot find replacement string for it so I had to throw mine away. Sorry, no recommendation form me. (read more)

Very bad quality and can seriously injure you unexpectedly. Strong Plastic main body, that about it. Very poor string, I could not string it up and it unravelled like the cheap Chinese junk it is. Screws on body coming loose. Very bad string safety. If you could string it up you might accidentally shoot yourself as the safety is crap. The string come right up and it can fire on its own without pressing the trigger. Very dangerous! I am sending it back for a refund. (read more)

Overall this is not a bad crossbow I have had mine for a couple of years and it is still working I made a new string for my cross bow. This crossbow is accurate within thirty feet but with practice you could probably get good accuracy at further distances. THis crossbow is potentially deadly to rabbits and squirrels within reasonable range. Overall it will get you the idea of whether or not you like crossbow shooting or not and will help you decide on whether to get a more powerful model or not. (read more)

The Chinese 50 lb Draw Pistol Crossbow is amazingly inaccurate when shooting from medium distances. It is worth the peanuts you pay for it, if you can find a bit of extra money I would suggest buying a cheap 150lb crossbow, you won't be dissapointed. (read more)

The Chinese 50 lb draw pistol crossbow is very affordable. And is pretty accurate within 30ft. The trigger pull is a little hard but other than that no complaints. They are probably the only crossbows in the 10-20 dollar range. (read more)

I have bought my Chinese 50 lb draw pistol in Italy (I'm dutch) for E30, mine has an 80 lb spring which is more than sufficient for target practicing at 10 feet or so. If you buy this product, you'll probably want a whole bunch of aluminium bolts, they are light and quite strong but they get lost quit easily. The product is very accurate and powerful and the stuff to aim with is well adjustable. The only downside on this product is the weak metal strip to hold the arrow in place. I love... (read more)

I bought my Chinese 50 lb draw pistol for shooting rattlesnakes in dry brush where a firearm might start a fire. I made a double sling for it and wear it on my back. I made a quiver out of 3/4" PVC (the really thin-wall stuff) with end caps and it holds 5 plastic or aluminum bolts. I attached this beneath the crossbow (along the frame) with 2 cable ties. I keep a sixth bolt on the rails under the string. I fired one of the platic bolts up a moderate grade about 300 feet and have never... (read more)

I'm pleased with the overall performance of the Chinese 50 lb draw crossbow pistol. I would recommend not shooting it into wood, may damage your bolts. (You might be able to tune it up a notch, if you so desire.)
This is not a "TOY", it could cause considerable amount of harm if not treated properly and with respect.

Actually I picked up this to throw in free shiping on an order I already placed. I was actually suprised by the pinpoint accuarcy of this pistol. Within practising for 20 min or so I was able to hit appels consitently at 20-25 feet. This is pretty good for a $10 pistol bow!!! It is nice just to have a little fun with I would get one.

A lot of fun to shoot this little pistol and actually could be very deadly to squirrels and pigeons etc out to about 20 feet... limited by accuracy and not enough power however.
Well worth the money although all the guys that have spent big bucks on high power deer hunting crossbows will regard it as pure junk.
It is cheap enough to be a gag gift for dads and nephews etc. but secretly they will really have a lot of fun with it. Do not shoot indoors thinking this is a toy however. (read more)
