Product Spotlight: Mission Archery’s Innovative New Crossbows


Mission Archery recently unveiled two new crossbows and the industry’s first silent mechanical cocking device. Most of  the archery industry introduces products at the Archery Trade Association show in January, but Mathews and Mission each have such strong followings that they hold their own shows. It was at one of these events where they introduced these new products. The short, light-but-powerful MXB 320 was a huge success, and Mission maintains this momentum with a very powerful crossbow and a new, lighter and compact model. Here’s the information from Mission:

Mission Archery breaks new ground with the MXB-400—a screaming-fast, 400 FPS crossbow built on a lightweight frame. Shooters can now achieve tighter pin gaps  without sacrificing mobility thanks to a 14” power stroke and balanced frame.

The MXB-400MXB-400-Tactical-Side-230x99 takes advantage of a host of proven technologies such as the RSS Tread which makes conventional foot-stirrups obsolete, the PCC Anchor that eliminates the possibility of string hook jumps, and the BIASS Rail that minimizes weight and enhances downrange accuracy. Dual X-Cams significantly reduce recoil making the MXB-400 the ultimate speed bow. Starting at $1199, the MXB-400 comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

MXB-DAGGER: At just 30 inches, the Dagger can go with you anywhere. With a MXB-Dagger-Side-230x99power-stroke of just 10” and a physical weight of only 6.3 lbs, the Dagger is Mission Archery’s lightest, most compact crossbow to date. Powered by the all-new perimeter-weighted WX-Cams, the Dagger is truly silent and nimble. Starting at $799, the MXB-Dagger boosts speeds of 340 FPS and comes with an industry-leading Limited Lifetime Warranty.

All MXB Crossbows are compatible with the new RSD System—the first silent mechanical cocking device. Both the MXB-Dagger and MXB-400 come assembled and include a Mission Archery case. Available in Tactical, Lost AT, Snow and Pink Camo finishes. To learn more, visit or your nearest Authorized Mission Archery Retailer.

downloadRSD (REMOVABLE SILENT DRAW) SYSTEM: Mission Archery leads the industry with the first-ever silent mechanical cocking device for crossbows. The patent pending RSD fits all Mission MXB Crossbows and can be installed or removed in a matter of a few seconds. In addition to being completely silent, the RSD improves accuracy through the use of a floating rope-pull that ensures equal tension is applied to each side of the bowstring during the draw.

The RSD System is outfitted with a removable, ambidextrous reel that when engaged will reduce the operator’s effort by eight times. The RSD System makes it possible for virtually anyone to draw a crossbow in complete silence.

BURT COYOTE & MISSION TEAM UP: Mission Archery also partnered with Burt Coyote to design a Lumenok specifically for Mission MXB crossbow models. Lumenok’s lighted nock is made with a polycarbonate material and allows the user to follow the flight path of the bolt even at high speeds. The Lumenok will come assembled for instant use and is included with any Mission Archery Crossbow Bolt 3 Pack.
