Today we have decided to take a look at possibly the best and most popular of Parker Crossbow models to date the Parker Enforcer.
Although Parker Bows are a staple name in hunting communities the broader market has just recently taken notice of this quality U.S. manufacturer. Parker has boasted for years that their crossbows are the easiest bows to cock and reload on the market, and how their engineering teams are constantly looking to improve the design of their crossbows. This drive and desire to be the best crossbow manufacturer have propelled Parker Crossbows into the limelight and they are gaining market share amongst even the biggest giants in the crossbow game.
The Parker Enforcer
The Enforcer crossbow is a beautifully crafted bow, coming in with an overall weight of just 7 pounds; this ballistic polymer frame and high strength aluminum riser are designed for speed & power! Its overall length comes to 36.75”, axle to axle running width comes to 20.25”, which means this bow is just short enough to not be a nuisance in a tree stand and long enough to provide the power to take down most any game in the U.S.
To make this crossbow, even more, field ready, Parker has disguised the crossbow with a Realtree Hardwoods HD camo finish.
The bow was designed to be extra lightweight but still powerful enough for most hunter’s preferred game. In order to achieve this, Parker utilizes their “Advanced Split Limb Technology” and their “Micro-Lite Limb Pocket System. This technology allows for arrow speeds at over 315 feet per second (FPS). Not bad for a small, compact compound bow.
More advanced engineering include Anti-vibration and Anti-shock systems that were installed on the bow, to keep it optimally balanced before – during – and after you take your shot. It also helps in reducing the overall noise.
It is also equipped with an ergonomically crafted G2 trigger with safety and Anti-Dry Fire Mechanism.
The pistol grip stock has a vented forearm grip, to help in making the crossbow lighter and easy to maneuver.
Parker offers the Enforcer in a combination package that comes with a Four Arrow Quick Detach Quiver, four arrows with field points to fill it up with, and a 4X Multi-reticle Scope.
