The recalled crossbows measure between 29 and 35 inches and are equipped with an automatic safety located behind the scope mount. The crossbows were sold individually or as part of a package that included a black scope, quiver, three bolts, and a rope cocking aid. The products were sold in black, lost camouflage AT, white camouflage, or a pink camouflage pattern. Mission by Mathews is engraved on the back left side of the crossbow’s rail.
The crossbows were manufactured in the United States under Mathews Archery Inc., dba Mission Archery, of Sparta, Wisconsin where they were sold at archery and hunting sporting goods stores nationwide from May 2013 through April 2014 for between $600 and $1,300.
The CPSC advises customers to stop using the recalled crossbows and return them to either Mission Archery or an authorized dealer for a free repair to prevent the bows from misfiring. Customers may also contact Mission Archery at 844-334-8891 or visit them online at www.missionarchery.com for instructions on how to obtain free shipping for repair.
