Survival is a decision

No one is just waiting around for a life-or-death situation to occur – but every expert would advise you to prepare for just such an eventuality. Make the AR-6 Stinger II Survival part of your plan: a light, robust, and reliable crossbow that will not leave you stranded.

The Survival was inspired by the ArmaLite AR-7 Explorer, fills the same role, but is considerably more accessible. Weighing about the same as two MREs, it can fit easily in any vehicle trunk or boat, or on any pack. The Survival is the ideal companion when you only have yourself to depend on.

This hunting crossbow was developed specifically to deliver reliable performance under the most difficult of conditions. Together with the optional, razor-sharp hunting broadheads, the 55 pound limbs that are included in the basic kit offer sufficient range, power, and precision to allow even novice archers to hunt small game in an emergency situation. All tools required for assembly are integrated into the crossbow.

Watch the AR-6 Stinger II in action

Stranded with your sailboat on a desert island? Ditched your rented plane in the jungle? Broke a driveshaft in the middle of nowhere?

With our AR-6 Stinger II Survival, you will at least not have to get out on an empty stomach.
This video shows what the Survival is about: an ultra-light takedown hunting crossbow that is small enough to always have with you.

But the Survival also has plenty to offer when it’s not a matter of life or death – plinking with friends in the back yard or engaging in serious target shooting.

  • Easy to transport

    When broken down, the AR-6 Stinger II Survival can easily fit into a pack or small case. It is light and easy to use under any conditions. No matter what emergency arises, you and your Survival will make it through!


    Quick assembly

    The Survival is a takedown crossbow. The necessary tools are integrated into the crossbow so that you can assemble it in the field.

  • Easy reloads

    Simply use the foot stirrup to cock the string. No matter what limb weight you choose, cocking is easy this way.


    Improved accuracy

    Small game means small targets. The Survival improves your chances of securing calories by offering adjustable iron sights on the top Picatinny rail so you can zero your bow to your bolts and limb weight. And if you need even greater precision, we offer a 4x32 scope.

  • Enhanced safety

    When hunting, a crossbow needs to be cocked and ready to fire. And you have to load the arrow into the crossbow after it has been cocked. This is why the Survival is equipped with a safety that traps the string in the latch.


    Tool-free string replacement

    If needed, you can replace the string on the AR-6 Stinger II Survival quickly and easily even in a survival situation. In fact, you don’t even need any tools to do it.

  • Robust design

    Thanks to its robust but lightweight construction, water is no problem for the Survival. Its open, minimalist design makes it easy to clean off any sand or mud so that nothing can block the trigger. And even if the bow is damaged in some way, you can still use your Survival as long as you can cock the string.


    Light as a feather

    The AR-6 Stinger II Survival is made of high-quality, ultra-light polymer. Coming in at a mere 1 kilogram fully assembled, it is a featherweight hunting crossbow.
