Once you have your scope properly mounted on your bow, set your speed dial to the manufactured suggested speed of your bow. Start at 10 yards to make sure you are on target and make adjustments with your vertical and horizontal adjustment turrets to zero the bow. Next, back up to 20 yards and do the same. Back up to 50 yards and zero the bow in here to where you are confident. After this has been done, come back up to 20 yards to calibrate your bow for the rest of your reticles. At this point you want to focus on using just your speed dial for vertical adjustment of all your reticles out to 100 yards. Take a shot at 20 yards with your 20 yard reticle. If you hit high you will need to turn your speed dial slightly down to a lower number until you hit exactly what you are aiming at. If you hit low, you will need to turn your speed dial to a slightly higher number until you hit exactly what you are aiming at. Upon doing this the rest of your reticles will be set out to 100 yards.

The correct rest position is in the most vertical position possible.

The trigger box will stay connected to the string until the bow is fired. It will not hurt the bow or cause damage by being attached and left on after the bow is de-cocked. The next time you would like to shoot, make sure your safety is in the safe position, cock your bow back and load an arrow.

It is safe to keep your crossbow cocked while you are hunting in a stationary position. For personal safety reasons, do not stalk or walk to or from your hunting location with your Ravin crossbow cocked. Do not keep your crossbow cocked for more than about 8 hours.

You want to nock your arrow on your Ravin crossbow with the odd colored fletching pointing straight down.

The correct rest position is in the most vertical position possible.

Move the rest in the most vertical position possible, put a little Loctite on each screw and tighten down.

We recommend using Ravin branded Polymeric bow string conditioner fluid. This is a non-wax lubricant. This can be used on the string and is also designed to be put right on to the center serving. For further instructions see your Ravin owners manual.

We recommend changing the strings and cables about every two years or 400 shots, whichever occurs first. The string life can vary depending on the care and maintenance, a number of shots, and weather conditions during use.

Once your crossbow needs to have string and cables replaced we would recommend taking it to your local Ravin dealer. You can find the closest dealer with our Dealer Location on www.ravincrossbows.com in the main navigation.

Yes, your arrows can be re-fletched with a 1 degree off-set.

Both fixed and expandable broadheads will work out of your Ravin, however, we recommend using an expandable broadhead for best accuracy down range. Also, make sure that when selecting a broadhead that it is rated for crossbows and even more specifically for the speed of your bow.

Your scopes reticles are adjusted by using your speed dial which is your magnification setting. This means that once you properly sight in and calibrate your scope using the speed dial your magnification will become a fixed power at that point as well. Moving the dial to a different Magnification setting after your bow has been properly sighted in and calibrated with your speed dial will result in an accuracy issue vertically.
