About Barnett Crossbows

It started with one man’s dream, a passion to hunt and the vision of what was needed to accomplish that dream.

There are reasons why we have sold over one million crossbows to date. From its inception, over a half century ago, every Barnett crossbow has been built to be better and better. Innovations on top of innovation combined with pioneering patents year after year have made Barnett the world’s number one manufacturer of crossbows. Barnett has built bows to be better, faster, stronger and more powerful. Built for maximum speed, efficiency and Built for the Hunt!

Barnett engineers were pioneers in developing the most desired features in a hunting weapon. It began with inventions like the Commando “Self-Cocking” Crossbow, the first compound crossbow the “Demon”, carried on with the Patented Quick Detach Front End and continues today with a fully integrated crank cocking device attachment.

Our engineers have created our latest range of crossbows based on the changing needs and desires of today’s hunters. Lightweight, Adjustable and Powerful, Barnett has brought crossbow technology to the height it stands at today. We are committed to delivering high quality performance products with unparalleled service and value for all that use the Barnett Range. Barnett Outdoors not only produces the finest quality crossbows in the world, but is the leading international producer of youth archery and slingshot products.
