    CROSSBOW ARMCROSS LEOPRO

    Post by heinzdastier on Tue Jul 20, 2010 4:48 am

    Hello to all crossbow fans out there, hope I am right here with my thread …



    I am Heinz and new in this forum. Does anyone have any experiance with the xbow Leopro from Armcross Germany (optically its very similar to the Horton Recon/Vision175) but the Horton is produced in license of Armcross.



    Since november last year I shot with this xbow, I love it. Now I put on a few needful things I built by myself. These accessories are available now from Armcross Division Austria, like a string-stopper, an ajustable shaft system, a bigger scope (8-32x60), a bipod and some other cool goodies.



    Has anyone other ideas for this crossbow to make it better?

    I am looking forward to any reply.



    Thanks and keep on striking home.

    welcome to the forum, just curious how much does the whole thing weigh? And how is it shooting offhand. Do you use it for target or hunting?

    ARMCROSS LEOPRO

    Post by heinzdastier on Tue Jul 20, 2010 4:29 pm

    Hy Todd,

    of course it weighs a little more now than original.
    But therefore I put on the bipod, with this I have a very good bearing to shoot.

    But I shoot also by free hand, and the courios thing is, the backstroke of the Leopro now is smoother than without the more on weight. So the more on weight is not always a disadvantage.

    I use this xbow for target shooting, 3-D and just for fun. You have to know, that in Austria, hunting with Bows and Crossbows is forbidden.

    And the big scope does a second advantage: I don´t need an extra mono okular or big binoculars to get a closer look, where the arrow has gone on the target at long distances.

    By the way what do you shoot?

    I am currently shooting an Excalibur Exomag that you can see in my avatar. I have since then added a wood stock made from walnut.



    I am also in the process of building a medieval style cross (still waiting for the prod to come in).

    Hello heinzdastier and welcome to our little forum.

    Very interesting composition.

    As I understand you like long distance shooting (scope kinda gives it away )...how far do you shoot? 70+ yards?

    PS: Making it better...anything you put on the limbs/string will slow down the crossbow...since you don't hunt with it perhaps you can benefit from a louder, but faster crossbow.

    Also if long distance accuracy is desired a "level" can be quite handy.

    Hy Ivo,

    thanks for advice, I put on a level bubble, but by the way, what brand is this on your attached picture.
    I don´t know it for Europe.

    Thanks

    The brand name is VTX or Vortex...It's a pretty cool design...assuming the advertisement/reviews are true - this level design has a reduced chance of accidentally breaking the level as might happen in the first one that mounts to the scope mounting rail.

    Vortex - Link

    There is also this one really crazy one I found ...some really wild things are out there.Laughing
