Crosses and Handles

Crossbows and crossbow grips

Thecrossbow is a weapon that has survived the ages and been used for many different purposes. Comprising a bow and barrel, it is the weapon of choice for hunting. Over the years, crossbows have come in many different forms. There are competition crossbows, hunting crossbows, classic crossbows, compound crossbows, folding crossbows and pistol crossbows. Each model is designed for a specific use, and differs in mechanism, power and precision.

Crossbow construction

In its original conception, the crossbow was a weapon whose structure was not very different from that of the bow. All it had was a wooden shaft for aiming. To this is added a stock or handle, which guarantees greater comfort of use, and a nut. The nut is a disc made of bone, ivory or metal, with two notches to accommodate the string. In this way, the squares are propelled over a greater distance than arrows shot from a bow. Over the years, with the advance of new technologies, crossbows have embarked on a structural innovation. Barrels are now made of stainless steel, for added strength. The same applies to the stock and handle. Modern crossbows can also be fitted with a range of accessories, including sights, quivers, false strings and pulleys. Each accessory promises greater comfort of use and optimized shooting power. 

At Hattila, you'll be able to choose from a wide variety of accessories to equip your crossbow. The online crossbow reference even offers stocks and grip grips for different types of crossbows.

Choosing the right crossbow: the importance of the barrel

Choosing a crossbow shouldn't depend solely on its design. You'll need to pay particular attention to the barrel, commonly known as the arbrier, the central piece of your weapon. All the components of the crossbow are connected to it. You can choose between aluminum, carbon and wood barrels. If you'd like to take up crossbow hunting, a model with an aluminum barrel will be just what you're looking for. For indoor shooting, opt for a carbon shaft, favored for its maneuverability and lightness. You can also opt for a wooden barrel, a versatile and robust material.

The stock, the choice of comfort

Comfort is also an important consideration when buying a crossbow. Numerous accessories can help you enjoy greater comfort not only when carrying your crossbow, but also when using it. The sight, for example, enables you to better target game during a hunting trip. As for the pulley, it allows you to easily cock your crossbow, whatever its model. As for the stock, it carries the trigger and will enable you to enjoy greater shooting comfort. It also ensures greater precision when the shot is fired. So, to choose the best stock for your crossbow, you'll need to make sure it's comfortable to hold and easy to handle. You'll also need to check the trigger system and the location of the safety.

At Hattila, you'll find the best selection of crossbow stocks: a compact stock for EK crossbows, a stock for Ar-15s, an adjustable stock for Cobra R9 and RX crossbows and a SPEC stock for EK Torpedo crossbows. 

The handle 

Just like the stock, the crossbow's handle is a key element in your comfort and shooting accuracy. Hattila offers a wide range of grips to meet your needs. You'll find an AR grip that fits an EK Accelerator crossbow. Hattila also offers a triangle foregrip for EK Accelerator-blade-JAG 2 crossbows. If you want a taste of innovation, Hattila offers an adjustable stock for your R9 and RX cobra crossbow. You can also opt for a simple tactical grip or a 5-position tactical grip. 

The importance of maintenance 

Maintenance is always a must if you want your crossbow to retain its performance and design. With this in mind, remember to grease the mechanical parts often, those made of iron or stainless steel, to prevent rust. As for the string, if it's worn, you'll need to change it. To free it, hold your crossbow by the butt. Remember also to protect the points of your bolts when you don't intend to use them.
