Axe Crossbows AX440

Breaking the perception of conventional crossbow performance Axe® Crossbows continues to define Performance Optimized with the introduction of the AX440.

Leveraging the development process of the AX405 where thousands of hours in research and development resulted in configuration that widely departed from average in look, feel and efficiency of traditional crossbows the AX440 is special. With these industry-changing principals as the fulcrum of performance the AX440 continues to advance.

At a maneuverable, stable and easily shouldered 30.5-inches long and less than 12-inches axle-to-axle (cocked) the weight of the 440 is centered over the shooter’s hand by way of a balanced shoot-through stock and riser design and reverse limb system. This configuration empowers the most efficient part of the split limb system from just 15 inches of power stroke to launch bolts at 440 feet-per-second. The proprietary Axe cam system is linked by cables that run parallel to each other, rather than from the top of one cam to the bottom of the other. This unique configuration eliminates cam-lean, limb torque and is further enhanced by an exclusive cable brace that engages the riser to aid in the limitation of flex away from the center of the crossbow. When combined, these features center the string to move along the same plane throughout the entire power stroke. Unlike the one-piece aluminum rail concepts of conventional crossbow designs that rob speed, efficiency and bolt life, the stock of the AX440 also eliminates the rail and utilizes dual carbon guide rods along the entire length of the stock. When combined with the shoot through riser and a tunable roller rest on the bow’s front end, these features create a free-floating arrow system that minimizes contact, friction and torque along the arrow’s entire path. The result; greater efficiency, accuracy and speed output. The AX440 also puts to work the proven small diameter 19.5-inch (.166 I.D.) bolt system to produce extreme accuracy, durability, penetration and safety. The interaction between the bolt’s premium aluminum capture nock system and the bow’s string create an audible sound to note full connection and preparation to interface with the trigger system.

When it comes to safety the Axe system is still second-to-none; driven by a proprietary, completely silent integrated crank system, and fail-safe trigger assembly with Dry-Fire Inhibiting technology the Axe trigger system among the safest on the market today. Prior to cocking, the trigger housing travels along the carbon guide rods engaging a series of safety features along its path before meeting with the backwall. The bow cannot be over cocked and features a hard stop upon achievement of full draw. As a testament to both safety and performance the crank system can be stopped or continued from any position along the guide rail and de-cocked in this same capacity. Beyond safety, the AXE 2-stage sliding trigger assembly is crisp, clean and factory set to 3.5-pounds with less than .020 of trigger creep!

Adding to the crossbow’s uniqueness is a series of user adjustability and interface features such as an adjustable cheek rest with 1.25-inches of height adjustment, stock stand offs to adjust length of pull and an adjustable stirrup that nests into the bow’s front end. The Axe 440 crossbow kit includes the new Axe scope system with optimized reticle to for the crossbow’s trajectory, a compact, side-mount quiver and three proprietary .166 Axe micro-diameter bolts.
