Barnett Crossbows Recently Acquired by Surge Outdoors

Barnett Crossbows has been in the business of making and selling high-quality archery equipment for decades. Founded in 1962, the company was recently acquired by Surge Outdoors breathing new life into the company. The acquisition has come as a result of Surge Outdoors’ desire to focus on and show customers its commitment to the archery industry.

Despite Barnett being acquired by Surge, none of Barnett’s current locations will close. Instead, Surge outdoors will maintain operational facilities in various locations including Louisiana, Utah, Florida, and of course Illinois where Barnett is headquartered.

“Barnett is the first and longest-standing crossbow company with a storied heritage…I am thrilled to once again be a part of telling everyone that story and help write the next chapter. Barnett will continue to lead the crossbow industry through profound innovation and a heightened focus for the archery industry,”

-Ryan Busbice, Surge Outdoors, CEO.

Barnett has been hard at work throughout 2021 bringing new products like the all-new Hypertac 420 compact crossbow which features an onboard quiver, metal injection molded trigger, anti-dry fire technology, single bolt assembly, step-thru riser, and is compatible with Hyperflite .204 diameter arrows. The Hypertac 420 comes as a complete package with three 22″ arrows, a side-mounted quiver, a 1.5-5x32mm illuminated scope, and even a rope cocking device.

On the flip side of things, the President of Barnett Crossbows, David Barnett was looking forward to the company becoming part of the Surge Outdoors umbrella stating the following:

“With Barnett under the Surge umbrella, the future of the brand looks brighter than ever. We look forward to advancing the long-standing reputation of the Barnett brand and its products. Approaching our 60th anniversary in 2022, as the pioneer in crossbow design and manufacture in our industry, I’m excited to once again carry on the torch of my forefathers…certainly, the best is yet to come.”
