The Browning 171 Crossbow is the direct evolution of the Browning 161 Crossbow with an aluminum riser instead of a magnesium riser. The Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camouflage finish was favored over the all black finish with golden details. It leaves a better impression while hunting with greater chances of staying unnoticed.

This well-known company for guns and rifles put the same high-quality and efficiency into their crossbows. They loaded with high-end features this fully ambidextrous weapon to enhance your hunting experience.  

At only 7.2 lbs and around 9.5 lbs with all accessories installed, this crossbow won't cause fatigue when aiming still for several minutes. The weight is perfectly distributed so the center of gravity holds in the middle. The buttstock goes smoothly into the shoulder increasing that feeling of a well-balanced crossbow. They shrunk the Browning 171 crossbow by few inches making its design even more compact.

This crossbow is rubberized like its predecessor to absorb maximum vibration from every shot resulting in a much quieter crossbow. This Browning features Trigger Tech trigger which is a frictionless technology that gives a clean break for maximum performance at about 3 lbs. The 171 delivers a brutal 390 FPS and you can expect about 135 ft-lbs of kinetic energy with included bolts. No doubts, you will have meat in your freezer this year!

Cocking the browning onesevenone crossbow gets easier than the browning onesixone crossbow. Heavier at 170 pounds of draw weight but, with the addition of a fully integrated rope cocking device with a sliding system that will go down the rail to reach the string, it reduces by more than half the cocking weight. This new system means a more consistent draw every time you want to cock this crossbow and reducing uneven serving placement.

Safety toward crossbows is really important and Browning knows it. They have built in an anti-dry-fire system that doesn't allow you to engage fire if the bolt is not well seated at the rear of the flight track. This new piece of technology is called a nock sensor which increases safety and makes almost impossible dry firing the crossbow.

Browning repeated to deliver a high-performance crossbow that is ready-to-hunt right out of the box at a lower price.

    At first, I'm usually skeptical about the velocity of a product description. My chronograph registered an average of 385FPS. with the 171. So easy to use that my brother could follow me while hunting even if he never shot one before. Really Satisfied.
