Barnett Predator

I have a Predator. I have used it the last two years. This year however, when I pull it back and it locks in place I cannot remove the safety. Of course this was made evident with a deer in my sights. I have found that when cocking back to move the safety forward before releasing tension. But that leaves me with a live trigger in the stand or blind. Anyone else had this problem or know of a fix.'

thanks.

    Are you sure you had the bolt all the way back? I have one too, and if the bolt is not back in positionthe safety won,t move I think it is so it can,t be dry fired! Their is a small lever that has to be moved up

    Hey,

    thanks. The piece that is supposed to hold it tight needed some adjustment to hold the bolt tighter. It kept creeping out just enough to keep if from engaging. Again thanks. Didnt get a deer with it yet though.
