The M-370 Crossbow from Wicked Ridge Crossbows is an unbelievable value in the crossbow world. Shooting at speeds of up to 370fps, and weighing in at only 5.8 pounds, the M-370 is definitely a bow you’re going to want to do some research on if you’re in the market for a new crossbow in 2020. Wicked Ridge M-370 Crossbow
Extremely Lightweight: This bow is the lightest crossbow on the market currently, weighing only 5.8 pounds barebow. With the scope, quiver, three arrows, and the rope sled on the bows, it hit our scale at right around 7 pounds. This bow is also built right here in America, which is rare to find in a crossbow at this price point.
Compact and Maneuverable: This front end might look very similar to the front end from last years’ Turbo M1 and Titan M1, and that’s because they are nearly the same.
TenPoint (Wicked Ridges’ Parent Company) designed this bow off of the M1 platform, which was the most popular bow in the TenPoint lineup in 2019. This bow is just 9.5″ wide when cocked, and 14″ wide when uncocked. That means you won’t be dragging your limbs through any brush or knocking them against the window frame in your box blind.
T4 Trigger: This is an exceptional trigger for a crossbow at this price point. The T4 trigger from TenPoint has a crisp 3.5-pound pull and breaks really cleanly. There is a little bit more travel in this trigger than in other higher-end bows, but the 3.5-pound pull is a significant advantage over other bows at this price point.
The M370 trigger also features a Dry-Fire-Inhibitor (DFI) and automatic engaging safety. That means you cock your bow in the fire position. The trigger automatically moves to safe once the bow is cocked back.
Available with ACUdraw:
This bow is available in two different configurations. With a Rope Sled Cocker and with TenPoint’s renowned ACUdraw crank cocking mechanism. The ACUdraw is not a silent crank, but it does make cocking the bow over and over again a breeze.
On top of that, it’s safe and easy to use as well. Here are some of our favorite features of the ACUdraw. The handle sits flush right into a pre-drilled mounting slot on the underside of the buttstock for easy storage.
- Reduces the draw weight to about 5 pounds when being operated manually.
- The ACUdraw unit is lightweight and has no bulky accessories or add-ons.
- Draws the string back evenly every time for consistent accuracy downrange.

The biggest concern I hear from customers who are looking to buy a “value” crossbow is that they are worry they will not get the accuracy that they would out of a higher-end bow. Well, you’re probably not going to.
The bows that are out today are so technologically advance that they are capable of amazing accuracy, and their prices reflect that. However, what I can also tell you is that 99% of the time. A crossbow of any price range will outshoot the person behind it.
I’ve had the pleasure to shoot so many different models of crossbows. Every single one of them is a better shot than I am. When it comes down to it, these bows really only need to be accurate enough to give you enough confidence to be lethal at an ethical shooting distance (most scenarios, 40-60 yards).
The below picture is the third, fourth, and fifth shot I have ever taken out of an M-370 crossbow. This is a grouping from 20 yards with the supplied XX75 arrows, and as you can see. I was also not shooting off of a completely sturdy rest, I was shooting off of a tripod shooting stick.
