Mission Archery Releases First Crossbow

Mission Archery, the hugely popular off-shoot of Mathews Inc., has entered the crossbow market. This is the first step for either company into the growing crossbow space and signals the accelerating trend of horizontal archery in the United States.

Mission CrossbowMission’s MXB-360 is another innovative game-changer from archery icon Matt McPherson, who designed the MXB-360 to give retailers and consumers a fast, quiet and accurate crossbow that is also lightweight, balanced and extremely easy to use.

“We’ve spent a few years listening to our retailers ask us to build a crossbow, and we’re confident the MXB-360 is going to be a new leader in terms of crossbow performance,” McPherson said.

The first thing you notice when you pick up the MXB-360 is how incredibly light and balanced it feels compared to other crossbows on the market, because it weighs just 6.55 pounds. The crossbow’s riser doubles as a foothold and eliminates the extra bulk of a stirrup.

The Mission crossbow’s cam system produces amazing speeds up to 360 fps. That’s more than enough force to take down big game, and yet it draws ultra-smooth with just a 14-inch power stroke.

Users can also change the draw weight from 160 to 100 pounds by simply adjusting the limb bolts. This same system allows shooters to change the strings and cables without using a bowpress.

To ensure accuracy and performance, all Mission crossbows are assembled and tested before shipping. Each is packed in a customized Mission soft case with added storage for crossbow accessories.

Mission also offers accessory packages at three different price levels that include an MX-3 Quiver, three customized Mission crossbow arrows and a Hawke scope. These accessories have been tested and approved for the highest performance on the MXB-360.

The MXB-360 will only be available at Mission Authorized Retailers. Visit missionarchery.com to find your nearest retailer and get more information on the MXB-360.
