Course Outline

Most crossbow manufacturers include a sight system with every crossbow they produce.

  • All types of sights should be installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions that are included with your crossbow.
  • Most manufacturers also sell sight systems as a separate accessory. You might want to purchase one of these if:
