This Insane AR-15 Inspired Crossbow Fires Bolts 226 Feet Per Second

It’s the deadly mashup you never knew you needed.

Cold Steel

The AR-15 design is one of the world’s most popular semi-automatic rifle platforms. You can find examples from top gun manufacturers chambered for 5.56-millimeter rounds, 7.62-millimeter rounds, .458 SOCOM and…crossbow bolts? 

Cold Steel’s AR-15-inspired crossbow, the so-called Cheap Shot 130, can send multiple arrows (known as “bolts” in the crossbow biz) into a three-inch spread at an impressive 226 feet per second—no stirrup or crank cocking needed. 

With a telescoping stock, detachable foregrip, OD green color scheme, and “Picatinny” rail on which sights and other accessories can be mounted, it really does look like an AR-crossbow mashup. 

Here’s everything you get out of the box for a very reasonable price of $280:  

  • Six 15” carbon bolts 
  • String wax 
  • Shoulder sling 
  • AR stock with buffer tube 
  • Single-position red dot sight 
  • Foregrip
  • Secondary detachable foregrip 
  • Two lens cleaning sheets 
  • Allen wrench
