Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value package Overall this is a good value package. I use it primarily for deer hunting.The crossbow itself is easy to assemble and once together is very accurate. Two inch groups at forty yards is easy to attain. Not the quietest bow ever, but bolt speed more than compensates for that, and knockdown power is excellent. I haven't had any string issues reported by other reviewers. Now the bad. No cocking rope is included. Even on a "starter" bow package, this is a necessity. The red dot scope had two issues: The locking nuts on the mount would not stay tight. That is, if you could get them to tighten in the first place. Once mounted, (sort of) adjusting the windage and elevation screws had no effect on the dots. Called Barnett, and they sent a new one. Good customer service there. Will reserve further judgement until this one has been used longer. As others have stated, the instructions leave something to be desired. For instance, the package comes with a spare arrow retainer, but there are no instructions on how to replace it. If you have any mechanical ability, you can figure it out, but new users might not have a clue. Also, the cable slide installation and scope mount instructions are included, but are on separate sheets, NOT in the owner's manual assembly instructions. READ ALL THE INSTRUCTION SHEETS BEFORE YOU BEGIN ASSEMBLY! In spite of the above issues, I would recommend this package, especially for those looking to get into crossbow hunting. It will get the job done, without it costing an arm and a leg. September 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Crossbow! This is my first cross bow and I chose this one because of the reviews I read and its speed. Got it sighted in today and was shooting 2" groups at 30 yards from a bench. Consistently in the kill zone when I shoot while standing. The seasoned bow hunter that helped me sight it in was blown away by its speed and accuracy and texted me later on to tell me he was going to get one himself. He told me, "You'll be eating back straps in no time." With this crossbow you get accuracy and 315 fps for a good price. You won't go wrong if you buy the Barnett Jackal. September 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 12 year old Daughter's bow Bought the Jackal in 2011 for daughters first year of hunting, because she was not at legal poundage with her compound. She got her first buck (6 point) with her jackal. Fast accurate and easy to zero. Very happy with this purchase...if you are looking for a first time investment for bow hunting this would the one...this 2013 season will be the third season with this bow with no issues of any kind, have not even had to change the battery on the scope. August 9, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst waste of money It is a extremely cheap made bow there is no way of making this bow accurate you can just bump the scope and move it to the left or right you can also move the limbs it is flimsy spend the extra 200 and buy a good bow the first time! July 20, 2013

the Scope has to be removed. After you replace the item, you will have to check the tension it rests on the arrrow. with the mount / set screws on top of the bracket you will need to adjust the tension of the arrow retainer.

A: 
the barnett jackel requires a minium of 425 grains this includes arrow and broad head. now if ur using a 20 in arrow i would make sure u use a 2219 model and a 100 grain broad head, that will get u to 432 grain, or u can use a 22in arrow and a 100 grain broadhead that will get u to 483 grain. if u shoot anything less than 425 grains its like dry fireing and u dont want that. u will damage ur bow. i myself us muzzy 3 blade with a 22 alum arrow with my jackel and i have never been let down. hope this helps

with the bolt and braodhead combind can not be less than 425 grains. so if ur using a 20 inch arrow make sure its a 2219 model and 100 grains braodhead will bring u in at 432, i myself us a 22 inch arrow and 100 grain braodhead with my jackel and that brings me in at 483 grain. u can always go longer with the arrows, but never shorter. and the min length for the jackel is 20 inch. no since in going any lighter on the grain of braodhead of a 100 or u asking for trouble.

I keep all my arrows around 400 grains overall. Using 100 grain heads and usually aluminium shafts as I have had better luck with them and the cost a lot less. that weight is a little over the minimum weight and has performed wvery well for me and you will never notice the few feet per second slower speeds.

The only major set back with this bow is that is has no noise dampers and as a result the bow tends to be louder then most. I am sure there is after market products that can be purchased to help this issue, but so far the deer have no complained.

However if you want it for hunting it is even better. This year I have shot two deer and neither of them went more than 45 yards. Great for any skill level.
