The Barnett Wildcat C5 inherits some features
from the other members of the Barnett compound
The stock has its own design but it is molded
using the Gas Assisted Molding process therefore
it is hollow for lightness while maintaining
strength. The GAM process also compacts the
material in order to expose a very smooth flight
deck surface to provide optimal string travel
and low serving wear. Barnett recommends
lubricating the rail every 5-10 shots with the
The trigger also shares the design with the rest
of the family but on this shorter power stroke
model the activation is set one pound higher
that the rest at 4 pounds.
The Wildcat is available decorated (dipped) in
Next G1 camo developed by Next Camo (http://www.nextcamouflage.com)
that proved to be both effective an very nice
looking (I really would have liked to see the
Predator in this camo!!!)
The Stock design is quite intriguing and it may
accommodate (optional) a crank cocking device.
This is welcome bonus to disabled hunters as
well as to shooters that need to cock the
crossbow many times during long sessions. The
crack cocking device can be bought and fitted
after purchase and it can be set up with a
minimum of skill.
Multi laminate limbs provide the 150 pounds
propelling force to the Wildcat C5 the limbs are
finished in black without the AVi over mold in
order to maintain a very affordable price point.
Cams (actually eccentric wheels) are mounted on
the quad limbs with brass self lubrication
bushings for trouble free operation.
The foot stirrup is rubber covered in order to
prevent slipping on hard surfaces and cut down
