I came across this on

My Barnett Crossbow is stuck? I have a Barnett crossbow and I pulled the string back till it was locked but I left the safety on and it's stuck. The safety won't budge and neither will the string.. I can't find anyway of releasing the string

My recomendation would be....take the arrow off of the barrel, and case it up. Take it to your local boyer or archery shop. I'm guessing it will need to be put in a bow vice to get the pressure off of the trigger. Good luck.

Check the O rings on the big metal striker, make sure that you have the spring on the back (where the stock would have went) in the right hole on the back plate. Make sure that your velocity is set to a reasonable level.

Check the trigger guard screws. If the trigger guard has been loosened or removed, it can effect the proper position of the safety actuating lever (the lever in front of the trigger adjustment screw), preventing a full cocking stroke.
