Tenpoint Viper S400 ACUslide Crossbow Package

  1. Veil Alpine
2 Color Options

TenPoint's shortest forward-draw crossbow ever produced, the light-weight Viper S400 measures just 32-inches in length yet delivers speeds up to 400 FPS. Featuring the revolutionary ACUslide silent cocking and safe de-cocking system, the uber-compact crossbow measures an ultra-narrow 7.2-inches wide and features a 3.5 pound, 2-stage, zero-creep S1 trigger that delivers our most crisp, consistent break ever.

The 8.25-inch aluminum Rangemaster Pro Scope features a variable speed and arrow drop-compensation setting for crossbows that shoot between 275 and 425 FPS, and requires no adjustment for distance. The Rangemaster Pro Scope features three duplex crosshairs and five dots calibrated for 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 yards. The fourth and fifth dots are free standing, just below the 40-yard crosshair.  Dots may be illuminated in red or green with the turn of a rheostat dial. An etched glass reticle and fully multi-coated 1.5 to 5x optics reduce the loss of light transmission, while a 30mm tube heightens light-gathering and durability.

The most accurate crossbow arrow ever, the CenterPunch 20-inch arrow is fletched slightly offset and is fitted with an 84-grain insert and TenPoint’s Aluminum or white Alpha-Nock and receiver for quick lighted nock installation. Constructed from modulus carbon fiber at 33 MSI (million-pounds-per-square-inch) and wrapped in an exclusive LAZER-TECH carbon weave, it is fletched with 3.5″ Bohning X Vanes™. CenterPunch arrows are inspected for straightness to within .001 and each package is weight-grain matched to within 1-grain per arrow.

Package Includes:

  • RangeMaster Pro Scope mounted on a machined aluminum 7/8-inch Fixed Dovetail Mount
  • ACUslide Cocking and De-Cocking System
  • 6-Arrow Tech Quiver

Great compact now, I would recommend this to anyone

Great compact bow at a great price! It is a little heavier compared to my other crossbow. All it needs to be an excellent crossbow is a winding crank.
