Excalibur Introduces the New Assassin Crossbow in Realtree EDGE


Compound crossbows may now be obsolete thanks to the introduction of the new Excalibur Assassin Crossbow in Realtree EDGE. Excalibur recurve limb technology means superior accuracy, no timing or tuning issues and bombproof durability – with a now virtually effortless draw cycle. Never out-of-tune and always accurate, the Assassin provides absolute reliability in a platform that’s fast, safe and easy to cock and de-cock. Hair-splitting accuracy is the result of a new frictionless two-stage match-grade trigger. This impressive crossbow is equipped with the new Charger Cranking System™, the industry’s safest and first dead-silent internal crank aid.



We’ve listened to hunters and set out to make the world’s easiest, safest, most rugged and reliable crossbow for anyone to use. The assassin gives them all that and more! The Assassin comes loaded with every feature you could want and the new Charger Cranking System takes away the difficulty of cocking the recurve limbs. Now customers can get a high performance crossbow that combines the advantages of a compound with the rugged reliability of our recurve limbs.


-- Rob Dykeman, president of Excalibur Crossbow


For over 35 years Excalibur Crossbows have been the No. 1 choice for crossbow hunters. The crossbows have proven time and time again to be the toughest, most reliable and accurate on the market and the only crossbow that can be fixed in the field. The Assassin reflects Excalibur’s dedication to quality and accuracy.


The Assassin offers the ultimate combination of stealth, strength and performance. Generating up to 360 FPS from the world’s quietest crossbow is now virtually effortless. Designed around the industry-leading micro platform, the Assassin is destined to dominate in tight quarters and in the stand. Two limbs and a string simplicity create the reliability that no compound crossbow can deliver.

Game-changing innovations:


CHARGER CRANKING SYSTEM™ - The revolutionary, dead silent internal crossbow cranking system, eliminates the need to load your crossbow before entering the field in fear of spooking game.


TRU-FIT STOCK™ - Designed with a unique tool-less adjustment feature, the stock can instantly adjust from 12 – 15” length of pull while the cheekpiece also adjusts 2” horizontally,  providing year round enhanced comfort, stability and accuracy for any shooter.


PRO-SHOT TRIGGER™ - A frictionless 2-stage match grade trigger that breaks cleanly and precisely every time without creep, producing repeated rifle-like accuracy at any distance.


SLIDING CATCH – The full draw latch safely locks the sliding carriage at full draw, eliminating load on the cranking system. In addition, the precision alignment of the FDL and Sliding Catch ensures consistent anchoring for repeated shot to shot accuracy.


QUICK TAKEDOWN - The unique front end assembly features the ability to be easily disassembled with a single bolt, and reassembled while consistently maintaining the same point of impact. It’s the only takedown crossbow that comes with its own custom compact hard case.
