Ravin Crossbow Upgrades by Firenock


The Ravin crossbows, loved by many, leave a lot of room for customization, optimization, and upgrades. For all current series (R9, R15, R10, and R20), we offer many accessories: AeroBolt®, Firenock®, Titanium Fastener Upgrade Kits, Hollow Titanium Axles, and the AeroRest™.



The Firenock Arrow

All Ravin crossbows, with the exception of the R10 (20”), require a minimum of a 21” projectile. With the use of a Ravin AeroRest however, that minimum changes. In addition, we suggest a 22” projectile.

Custom-built, the Firenock AeroBolt Series (II & III) crossbow arrows can be cut down to any length and thus can be used on any Ravin crossbow.  Additionally, all AeroBolts, at purchase, can be built for a 2, 3 or 4 vane configuration.  For those who want to use the TAC for ultra big game, the AeroBolt II Dragon Slayer is also available.  

Note : Like all common crossbow arrows on the market, the internal diameter of all Aerobolt is 0.300" for simple and easy nock style and crossbow exchanges.

Titanium Fastener Kit

Here, while its light weight offers a 50% reduction in weight, titanium's rigidity is the less known but much more significant characteristic. Although admittedly acknowledged and employed for years, the application of it within the archery sphere has only been correctly apprehended by Firenock.  See, with such rigidity, overall vibration is minimized which leads to the consumption of excess energy.  Why might you want to have excess energy absorbed?   Because then your bow will then shake less and shoot calmer.  Learn more about this specific concept here in our use of titanium in our stabilizer, the AeroStab, or click the "Learn More" button to the left below to explore more about what our kits entail.



The Firenock®

As of today, Firenock offers a total of 14 nock styles.  Of those 14, two are well-suited for serving sizes often found on crossbows such as Ravins.  As always, to ensure that the system will shoot correctly, it is necessary for the nock to clip onto the string perfectly.  Note the next few sentences to understand how a crossbow’s serving size will effect your Firenock nock’s clip capacity. For any Ravin crossbows which boast a 0.132" OD serving, “U” is the best option.  On the other hand, for any Ravin crossbows which boast a 0.122” OD serving, “C” is the best option.

Like many of our Firenock styles, "U" and "C" are offered in a plethora of colors. With three options for color of nock and six options for color of LED, there is a total of 18 color combinations for each style.  Additionally, there are up to three different functions of light: solidly lit, solidly lit for 6 seconds and then blink, and auto shut-off 17 seconds after fired.

Disclaimer : Firenock does not make nocks for Ravin crossbows or any specific type of crossbows. All Firenock nocks are and have always been designed to fit specific IDs of shafts and/or specific ODs of string servings. Please check and double check the exact fit of your nocks via your string serving especially or bodily harm could occur.

Hollow Titanium Axles

An option available at purchase with a titanium fastener kit for Ravin crossbows are the hollow titanium axles. Why should you purchase a pair? Well, first off, there is an 80% reduction is weight. Next, like all products made of titanium, these axles will last forever; they’re rust-proof and like aforementioned in the Kit for Ravin section, ultra-rigid. Consider this: your cam is the focal point of the kinetic energy being exerted on your crossbow and at 400+ fps, there’s a lot of that energy to go around. With a hollow titanium axle as the backbone for each of your cams, the output of all that energy will be more focused.

The Firenock® AeroRests

Many who had used the Ravin crossbows for long range precision shooting understand it takes a lot of effort to tune and maintain one. In some cases, the plastic rollers on the factory rests can and will wear out to the point of disuse. The Ravin AeroRests are our solution.

Like all AeroRests, the Ravin AeroRests’ are long-lasting. Their bodies are made of 7075T5 aluminum and each of their three fingers full of spring-loaded ceramic ball bearings. But what are the unique features do the Ravin AeroRests have that others do not? Well, all three, to fit snuggly at the front of the crossbow, have a uniquely designed and machined frame. And within that frame is a water level. The placement of that water level, however, depends on the model of the Ravin AeroRest, On the RAV1, the water level is right beside the top finger. On the RAV2 (see the picture on the left for a top down view) and RAV3, the water level is elevated about an inch up for a scope. More on the RAV3 and its capacity for micro-adjustment soon.

Please note that due to its unique design, all projectiles using AeroRest on a Ravin crossbow must have a two, three, or four vane configuration with cock vane down.

All Ravin AeroRests come with custom GR5 titanium screws and spacers.
