Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Bear X Desire XL Crossbow is medium to heavy, it is a single action only trigger as you need to cock the bow in order for the trigger to be engaged. The safety is also engaged when you cock the bow requiring you to take the Bear X Desire XL Crossbow off safe before shooting as an added layer of safety.

Accuracy: The stock can be adjusted up to 2.5 inch for comfort and increased stability. FPS is claimed to be around 175 depending on range of shot. It looks to perform fairly well.

Build Quality: The Bear X Desire XL Crossbow is actually made pretty decently, yes it is mostly plastic and light weight but feels sturdy enough to hold, the only real metal I can confirm is the cocking rail, mostly everything else other than the nuts and bolts that hold it together are some sort of plastic.

Realism: I think their is a crossover in terms of interest for a product like this with people that are also interested in airguns. I know I like the Bear X Desire XL Crossbow and can see a place for it in my collection even if it’s not a replica product.

Pros:

  • Fairly inexpensive.
  • Super light weight.
  • Can shoot in a variety of situations.
  • Easy to draw the bow.
  • Safety is automatically engaged.
  • Picatinny rail already has iron fully adjustable rear sight but can mount a red dot if you like.
  • Fiber optic front sight.
  • 3 bolts included.
  • 175 fps
  • Comes with fore grip.
  • 3 portion adjustable rear but stock.

Cons:

  • Will need a good backstop or will lose or damage a lots of bolts.
  • Takes a little bit of time to set it up but not too hard if you follow the instructions.

Comments: The Bear X Desire XL Crossbow is an interesting product that once purchased and if you manage to not lose the bolts will cost virtually nothing to shoot since you can reuse the bolts all day long given you shoot them on target and that target does not damage the bolts. It may not offer the rapid fire action shooting of a replica semi auto CO2 Pistol but still challenges the shooter in terms of getting the best possible accuracy out of it and at the end of the day trigger time is trigger time! If you are looking for something a bit different than your CO2 Air Gun then maybe the Bear X Desire XL Crossbow will fill that requirement.

Great Design, Lots of Fun and Solid Manufacturer Service

I actually wasn't shopping for a pistol crossbow (this is an air gun site after all) but this got my attention so I picked one up. Boy, am I glad I did! I know that they also make the smaller Desire but I think the XL, with the longer adjustable stock, would be better in both cocking and bracing despite needing a hex key to make that adjustment. Solid build, nothing wiggles. Accuracy is good for this kind of bow. Fantastic fun for target shooting with a safety that is engaged with each cocking. I found it more powerful than expected. I buried a few bolts in wood which is hard on the bolts so I use a target block. Do buy extra bolts as the three it comes with isn't enough. Also the bolts need thread lock (high strength) on the tips as they can unscrew easily otherwise. This is definitely not a toy to fool around with as it is more lethal than sub 500fps air guns. Treat it like a firearm. Having said that, I personally would not hunt small game or varmints with it. I do wax the string and lube the rail to keep it in good condition. Finally, I accidently nicked and frayed my bowstring (my bad) and so I contacted Bear Archery to ask where I could buy another. They went above and beyond to send me a new string at no charge. You can't beat that kind of support.

Action: Single action trigger. Ammunition Type: Aluminum bolts (Comes with 3). Ammunition Capacity: 1. FPS: 175fps. Draw: 60 pounds All in all the Bear X Desire XL Crossbow surprised me with how powerful it really was and with the accuracy using standard default bolts. This is for sure not a toy and you would never want to accidentally shoot this at someone as it could cause a very serious injury or even death and I mean that since these arrow would for sure pierce several inches into the body. So if you’re looking for something with a bit more raw power than your standard non-regulated Airgun, then check out the Bear X Desire XL Crossbow over in both our Canada and US Online Replica Airguns Stores.
