Excalibur is the first major manufacturer to announce their first new crossbow of 2017, called the Excalibur Micro Suppressor. Aiming to be the quietest crossbow ever, Excalibur has added many accessories to assist in what they're calling a Sound Deadening System. They've also made some bold claims that are exciting for those who love compact crossbows. Excalibur claims it is the most compact crossbow they've ever designed. At only 31" long, that is 1.5 inches SHORTER than their previous short model, the Micro 315, and 2.5 inches off the Micro 355, definitely putting it in the ultra-compact category.
