I figured I would post my initial impressions of the Ravin R15 crossbow since I finally had a chance to shoot it. The Ravin R15 came fully assembled. The scope, quiver, cocking arm, 6 bolts and 6 field points were included. Initial impressions out of the box were excellent. Very compact and light. After attaching the scope I headed to the range. Cocking was a breeze. Safety was subtle, trigger pull was very nice. First shot at the 10yd target blew through the target. Fletchings on the bolt were trashed. Next shot on 20yd target was a couple inches high. Two more shoots and I was zeroed in at 20yds. Bolts were buried almost to the fletchings. As a result the fletchings became mangled during the difficult extraction. So far this appears to be the real deal. PRO's Very fast, light, compact, accurate, able to de-cock in the field without firing. Everything seems very well made. Noise when firing was good by crossbow standards. Picatinny rail and built in sling attachments are nice features. CON's this thing is going to eat up arrows. Safety is very subtle and it may be difficult to see the indicator. This may be a source of stress for those supervising young hunters. The price tag is a little steep. Bottom line is this is a game changer. I will update as I shoot at longer distances and with broad heads.
