Size and Weight
The Barnett TS380 is a pretty compact crossbow. Its total length is 32.375 inches and comes with an adjustable butt stock. You can add 2 inches to the total length of the bow by expanding the adjustable butt stock.
When the TS380 isn’t cocked, its total width is 16.75 inches and fully cocked 13.25 inches.
Barnett managed to keep this crossbow pretty lightweight, it comes in at 6.9 lbs. It has an aluminum flight track and a riser made from magnesium alloy. Magnesium alloy is very lightweight but still very durable.
Speed and Arrows
As with most crossbows, the name already gives it away. The Barnett TS380 is rated to shoot arrows at 380 feet per second with a draw weight of 201 lbs.
Barnett provides two 20-inch 375-grains Headhunter™ arrows with half-moon nocks. The field tips weigh ~100-grains, the shafts ~275 grains. We don’t really like the fact that Barnett only provides 2 of these arrows with the package, usually it’s per 3/6/12. But again, the price is just unbeatable so we can’t complain really.
Barnett equipped the TS380 with a 4×32 Multi-Reticle Scope. This scope is rated to be waterproof and shock-resistant. It has multi-coated optics, which reduces the glare and reflection. Without any lighting, the image quality at long range is very clear and you can see details very easily.
Unfortunately, this scope isn’t fog-proof. If you’re hunting in warmer temperatures then it’s not a problem at all. If you decide to go hunting with this scope in the winter, with below freezing temperatures, then you’re probably in for a bad time.
The Barnett TS380 is a crank-cocking device compatible crossbow. You can get the crossbow with the crank-cocking device or with a rope-cocking device. I got the TS380 with the “tactical” crank-cocking device, it’s much easier to crank and despite my initial worries, it works really well!
People around me weren’t happy with Barnett’s crank-cocking device. I heard some issues with the device not fully locking into place and even ejecting out of its mount during cocking. None of them had the TS380 though and this crossbow is equipped with a different (tactical) crank-cocking device than other B crossbows.
According to Barnett, you’ll only need a maximum of 13 lbs. of force to turn the crank and cock the crossbow. It reduces the draw weight by over 93%! The crank-cocking device is ambidextrous, so it’s possible to adjust it for right or left-handed use.
Trigger and Safety features
One of the main features on the Barnett TS380 crossbow is the TriggerTech frictionless release technology Metal Injection Mold Trigger. We’ve seen this before on Excalibur and Barnett crossbows and it’s one of, if not the best trigger you can get on a crossbow.
It has a smooth zero-creep 3-pound pull. It also has anti-dry fire safety features and nock sensors.
