Barnett Ghost 410 CRT Crossbow Package
I got this bow the other day for my birthday. I had never even shot a crossbow before. While sighting it in, the scope that came with the bow literally fell apart. Hopefully BassPro will take care of this. I replaced it with one of my rifle scopes. (a little big, but it worked). The bow sighted in quickly and I was shooting a 2 inch group at 30 yards. The next morning, I went hunting. I shot a doe at 20 yards, easiest kill I've ever had. I decided to go back out that evening. Right before sunset, a 10pt I've been watching for awhile came out... Walked right up to me. Thanks to this bow, I now have to pay to have a mount done, plus 2 processing fees. All within 24hrs of getting it.

Recently purchased the Barnett Ghost 410 from Bass Pro Shops. I went to the Denham Springs store and bought all equipment I needed to set up and hunt with the best cross bow I could find. After reading many reviews on line I settled on this bow. I had difficulty with finding a suitable back stop that could stop the bolts and be able to remove them with out a lot of force. The least expensive Red Head bag target was the ONLY one that stopped the bolts and are simple to remove. I sited it in quickly and easily. I hunted about 8 times in a climber while learning the bow and becoming comfortable with it. It is easy to set up in a climber, fairly compact package. Finally on the last hour of the last day to hunt, 2 does walked out in front of me. I choose the larger of the 2 and aimed the bow at her. She gave me a quartering away shot at 20 yards. I squeezed the crisp trigger and like a rifle shot the arrow was through the deer and stuck in the ground before she jumped! My gosh that thing is FAST! It was quiet enough that the second doe didn't leave the plot till after the doe I shot crashed 30 yards away. I retrieved my arrow buried deep into the soil, testimony to the energy this bow delivers! Perfect pass threw with great accuracy and power. I am very satisfied with this product! Bass Pro was very helpful with the target selection problems. The staff had no experience with this powerful of a cross bow.

Barnett Ghost 410
Just got my Ghost 410 in today. Assembles very easily and was shooting it with in 10 minutes. Had to adjust scope and was hitting dead center at 30yds. I like to set my scope 1" to 2" high at 20yds. I was hitting black circle about 4"around at 75yds. Supper fast , accurate. I have 2 Ghost 400 killed 4 deer last year with them. Nice 8 point at 58yds drooped in his tracks. Cull 6 point at 87yds ran 20 to 25yds drooped dead. The 410 is not only lighter but the limbs are narrow and will be easier to slip out of shooting house windows. I also like the extra shoulder plate. It came with a thicker rubberize stock plate and a new sling which I really do like. cant wait for deer season.

Be careful, couldn't make it work
Bought one of these for the high speed and light weight. Barnett Customer service is excellent and worked with me to try and make the bow shoot right, but just was not accurate. Will shoot a 476 grain arrow up around 400fps, but no accuracy consistancy. Put a crank cocker device on it and first cock, seperated left side of serving on both strings tried. Barnett actually traded out the bow, but same problem. Rope cocker rides up on the top of the rail at the trigger assembly. Too much angle and weight. Wanted it bad, but just wouldn't work. Also preminum lighted scope only worked on highest red setting during daylight. Could not see green at all. Circle in the scope means your aiming at a 4 inch circle on a target at 20 yards. Again, Barnett Customer Service and Bass Pro Shop Customer Service was great, but bow just didn't shoot well. Returned it after 25 days. Think this bow design needs some work to be ready for sale. Perfer the Quad 400 that replaced it much better.
