I have the Mission MXB320 and had it for two years now. i've shot about a half dozen Toms and 2 bucks and a doe.  i shoot chipmunks at 30 yards.  Yes it is an off shoot company of Mathews.  i wouldnt trade it for nothing. 6.3lbs 320feet per second.  I feel very comfortable shooting out to 60 yards with it.

It is great that Mission backed you up on this but I would be a little leery of any bow that failed that dramatically and from the sound of it, more than once. I have shot crossbows for 8 years now and have not had one violently fail as you described. Good customer service is very important but it won't help you if your bow fails when you are shooting at your dream buck. Mrt.

Another installment with my experience with the Mission MXB400. This is about how great I think Mission is as a company and especially the MXB400 product. The local Pro Shop not interested in keeping customers and the lack of customer service.

So, My MXB 400 blew up again. The pro shop thinks it was my fault because he thinks the scope cover lens was touching the arrow. I disagree and if the scope cover caused the bow to blow up then what does that say about the bow ?

I took the 400 to the Pro shop. I was lucky because one of the Pro Shop's employees was shooting at the club when the bow came apart. Long story short, the employee called Mission, they said the would give me a brand new bow. The pro shop was not interested in doing anything on his own, right down to replacing the scope cover.

I took the new 400 to the club and with 20 arrows I was dialed in at 20, 30 and 40 yards. I'm not talking about dialed in to paper but X rings which are the size of a quarter.

I believe the first bow was a clunker. The trigger pull had a lot of creep in it and twice it came apart. I'm confident that I have the best crossbow on the market.

I wish I could say that about the pro shop. The owner of the shop is a great guy. He does a lot for the kids in the community but if you are in Central Wisconsin just know that at least one of our Pro shops here does not believe great customer service brings customers back.

I agree, keep the crossbow stuff out of an archery forum and it would avoid a lot of problems. If you have ever shot both you know that they are not the same. My favorite argument is give me your sighted in crossbow and I will give you my bow and lets see who hits a softball at 40 yards. I am sorry, its just to easy to shoot, archery was never suppose to be easy.

So you think Mission Archery makes the best crossbow? Your opinion is noted, move along.

Sorry your copulatory canal is hurt. I simply said my daughter shot a bear with a Raptor and liked it, but she wants to shoot a bow instead. Not sure why that's trolling unless you are feeling guilty. Use whatever the heck you want.

The Raptor is very affordable, lighter than most and smaller in size than most.

Mission Archery is a subsidiary of Matthews which makes crossbows, as well as bows and other equipment.

If Mathews made a Xbow I would buy it because it would have to be the best.

My daughter shot her bear with a crossbow, how is that trolling? If your feeling guilty don't blame me.

The reason the Archery forums are dead is because nobody is talking about archery anymore. I agree with madlabs completely. Use whatever weapon you want I could give 2 dumps of corn.

My daughters Raptor works well. Fired bullseyes right out of the box, so she never shoots it anymore, sort of like her .22 and pellet rifle.

Take a look at the thread titles for all posts within the last month. How many were specific and limited to vertical bows only? To be honest, the crossbow discussion is the only thing keeping this forum alive.

Oh, and here's a valuable tip. If you don't want to read threads about crossbows, don't open threads with the word crossbow in the title. Eezy Peezy, eh?
