Despite its sleek design, the Barnett Vengeance isn’t the easiest crossbow targets to assemble, there are some tricky parts that you’ll bump into when assembling this crossbow, and fellow hunters have reported that the instructions manual was not well thought of and the pictures were not very clear; you may refer to other articles regarding the Barnett Vengeance or watch some videos on Youtube.
This crossbow can literally take down almost any game with vengeance with its 140 lbs draw weight and Reverse Limb technology, its arrows fly off with a blistering velocity of 345 fps. This even gets better once you mount the scope onto the crossbow.
Now, what sets the Barnett Vengeance apart from other crossbows is it’s because it’s a reverse limb crossbow, what’s a reverse limb crossbow you ask?
Well, we’re glad you asked!
A reverse limb crossbow is a crossbow that has its limbs, well… reversed, however, unlike your conventional crossbows, reverse limb or draw crossbows have lower draw weights, have faster speeds, have better balance and are much more quieter compared to conventional crossbows.
Also unlike its conventional counterparts, and although this may not be a “thing” for everyone, reverse limb crossbows have a more radical and experimental design which makes it perfect for anyone who’d like to step outside the box or step up their game.
Power and Accuracy of the Barnett Vengeance

Every arrow can shoot a painful 365 fps with a 118 ft.lbs pure kinetic energy to match, the Vengeance can possibly go through a cape buffalo or grizzly bear. In fact, you might not even need to find another crossbow as the Barnett Vengeance has got you covered in all aspects when it comes to hunting.
Now since the barnett vengeance reviews is a reverse limb crossbow, some people might get confused on how to cock it, some of you may even think if the Barnett Vengeance can be cocked at all.
Now, cocking the Barnett Vengeance isn’t the same with cocking its conventional counterparts as you’ll be going in a completely different direction with the Barnett Vengeance, but despite that, the Barnett Vengeance is quite easy to cock regardless of your stature or build.
The scope included with the Barnett Vengeance is a high quality scope, it’s a 3×32 illuminated scope, it already comes sighted once you take it out of the box and you don’t need to make any adjustments (although some manufacturer’s may not have theirs sighted), as mentioned above, the owner’s manual can be quite vague so make sure to adjust your scope.
