Barnett Crossbows

why does barnett crossbow shoot really low?

i just got one, mostly polymer, looks a bit cheaper, got the bow used from my brother but it shoots really low, and the front sites don't help. is there any reason for this, my brother said i could fix it but what can i do, would adding a scope make it better

A scope will not change the rainbow trajectory of a crossbow bolt. Remember to adjust the sights for the arrow/bolt to hit higher, you either lower the front sight or raise the rear sight.
A scope has a limited field of view whereas open sights do not. I have found scopes on a crossbow even a 200 lb one, are only good out to about 30-40 yards.
If you watch the bolt in flight you will see it go straight then it drops like mad. You can change that some by using lighter bolts and broadheads but your limited by what the crossbow power is. Too light of a bolt and you could damage the crossbow because the string and limbs are not pushing against enough resistance.

If you learn to use the open sights you will be better off than getting a scope and going nuts trying to sight it in. Because to sight in a scope for it each arrow must have the same weight arrow, the same fletching and the exact same weight field point or broadhead and fired each time at the same distance. After you have a nice group you then figure the drop further out so you know your hold over. Crossbow scope have different line for drop and only by shooting will you find which line is good for what range.
Remember with a scope you can only fine tune one yardage.
