You can purchase an accessory hand crank mechanism from the manufacturer, but if you are of typical strength and stature you will have no trouble with the included rope and pulley cocking harness.

The Barnett Ghost 410 Crossbow, item number. iK-461023, maximum range is almost impossible to tell as it depends on the shooters skill level. Many factors can influence this. The weight of the bolt and weight of the broadhead for one.

answer 3
The high quality scope I mounted on my Ghost 410 has reticle dots out to 80 yards, but I don't feel comfortable shooting beyond the distances I was comfortable with for my compound bows. The crossbow has more velocity and power, but you still have all the environmental and human variables to deal with. The crossbow is much louder than a compound bow so the tendency of a whitetail to jump or duck the string is a big factor on the longer shots.

answer 3
The Ghost 410 has a very reliable and "smart" safety located conveniently on the receiver above the trigger. It automatically resets itself to "safe" as the crossbow is cocked. You cannot move the safety button to "fire" unless there is a bolt properly set on the rail - that feature prevents dry fires.

It's not recommended to leave crossbows cocked for extended periods. We would recommend un-cocking the crossbow at the end of each hunting session. Decocking bolts are available to unload a cocked crossbow.

I think the manufacturer says about four hours. I discharge mine after each morning and afternoon hunting session. I tried the special decocking bolts, but they seem dangerous to me and I broke several. I now use an old extra practice bolt with a dull field point and shoot it into a small burlap field point target which I always take with me.

answer 2
You have to use a crossbow target for all crossbows. They are too powerful of shoot at using traditional compound targets. Some might stop the bolt but you will be lucky to be able to pull the bolt out without breaking it. If you but a crossbow target you'll be good to go.

answer 3
You have to use heavy duty CROSSBOW targets with this crossbow. It will shoot right through regular vertical bow targets. Sometimes even with crossbow broad head targets the bolts embed themselves all the way in including the fletches. I would also recommend that you purchase one of the small decocking discharge targets if you use the crossbow for hunting because you can't leave the device cocked for an extended period of time.

I believe it is 125g. However, you can shoot 100 grain no problems. It's all personal preference. Liter grain will be a little quicker in flight heavier will be a lil slower but will have a more powerful punch if u hit heavy bone.

Standard scope rail just like a rifle. Any will fit it even rifle scopes but you need a crossbow scope because yardage still matters with a crossbow. Barnett scopes have pre set lines in the to establish yardage with the first one being a recommended 30 yds

answer 1
Google "kinetic energy calculator" and assume 330 grain arrows (they are included), plus the broad head weight at 350 fps NOT 410 fps. 410 fps is with 400 grain arrows only. If you want 410 fps you have to buy different arrows.

There's a chart in the manual that states:
380 gr arrow - 418 fps
400 gr arrow - 410 fps
425 gr arrow - 357 fps

NOTE 430 grain arrows are included so don't plan on 410 fps as shipped.

Up to 150 ft/lbs. As for broadheads affecting energy, don't worry. I shot a x-bow target at 50yds with a fixed broadhead. Took 2 people to remove bolt. The bolt was buried in target to fletching at 50yds.
