Reportedly capable of speeds of 505 fps with a 400-grain arrow, and delivering never-before-seen power of 227 foot-pounds of kinetic energy, the new reverse-draw design features the ACUslide silent cocking and safe de-cocking system. The ground-breaking design measures an ultra-compact 6.5 inches wide and 30.7 inches long, and weighs 7.9 pounds without accessories.

TenPoint’s patented reverse-draw bow assembly is the heart of the Nitro 505. It’s powered by the NEW RX8-Cam system that rotates an industry-leading 404 degrees. The new cam system features deeper cable grooves and improved cable spacing that allows for an increased strand count on string and cables, for added strength and durability at these unprecedented speeds.

The crossbow’s Vector-Quad cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two, which eliminates cam lean and generates straight nock travel designed to deliver same-hole down-range accuracy. You’ll also find a 17-inch power stroke–the longest in the industry, as well as the company’s S1 two-stage, zero-creep trigger that features an advanced roller-sear system built to deliver a consistent crisp, 3.5-pound pull.tenpoint nitro 505 crossbow

That’s what TenPoint is saying about this new combo package ($2,549.99), which features one of the company’s highest-rated crossbows ever, topped by the ground-breaking Burris Oracle X Rangefinding Crossbow Scope. TenPoint calls this package the most-affordable rangefinding crossbow you can find.

With the Viper S400, one of TenPoint’s shortest forward-draw crossbows at just 32 inches long, you get the company’s proven ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system, and speeds up to 400 feet per second. The good news continues with the Oracle X Scope, which features a built-in laser rangefinder that is activated via the wireless remote, or the range button on the scope. With the push of a single button, the Oracle X instantly ranges game up to 200 yards away, and reflective targets up to 500 yards away. This ground-breaking 2x-7x scope instantly displays the distance to your target and provides an exact aiming point factoring in the angle of your shot—leading to greater accuracy and more ethical shots.
