Strikingly different! As poisonous as its eponym! – These are the impressions you get the first time you see and shoot the X-BOW Cobra System Adder.
Strikingly different, because their appearance is unusual. The distinctive triangular shape is not only the result of an innovative technique, because it has never been easier to stretch a crossbow: The long connection between the pistol grip and the point is the lever for stretching the crossbow. But how does it all work? The answer is simple and, above all, much better than with all conventional systems. Because when the cocking lever on the pistol grip is released and pushed forward, the entire trigger unit, including the safety device, also moves forward and locks into place on the relaxed string. If the cocking lever is now brought back to its starting position, the trigger unit with the engaged chord moves back to the launch position and the crossbow is cocked. And thanks to the long lever, it requires considerably less force than conventional systems.
Innovation 2.0 – pistol crossbow with the magazine
As poisonous as its name giver, anyone who has shot the X-BOW Cobra System Adder once will understand. Despite or even because of its power, the necessary safety has been taken into account and the crossbow has been equipped with empty shot protection which protects it from damage.
In addition to the unique clamping mechanism, there is now another innovation that has been sought in vain on the pistol arm chest market: A magazine for the bolts! Yes, correctly read, the X-BOW Cobra System Adder has a magazine above the barrel, in which up to 6 bolts are accommodated. This automatically places a bolt in the barrel when the crossbow is stretched and the crossbow is ready to fire. Gone are the days when the bolts had to be carried in the quiver and inserted individually for each shot.
In addition to design and power, the materials used and other equipment details are also convincing: the pistol crossbow itself is made of high-strength plastic, the barrel and cocking lever are made of metal and the limb of pressed fibreglass. The upper mounting rail has a built-in rear sight and front sight and can be used as a mount for a scope. Further Picatinny rails are attached at the front side, as well as for mounting a tactical front handle on the cocking lever.
