Can I store my crossbow cocked for an extended period of time? Submitted by: Becky  Avatar Image

It is acceptable to have your Mission crossbow cocked while in  hunting situations.  However Mission recommend you discharge the bolt into a discharge target to reduce the stress on the limbs after the hunt.  We do not recommend storing or transporting your bow in the cocked position.

How do I “un-cock” my crossbow? Submitted by: Becky  Avatar Image

The safest and recommended procedure for unloading or un-cocking your crossbow is to fire a bolt/ arrow equipped with a field point into a recommended crossbow target or into debris-free ground.Never fire your crossbow bolt into the ground farther than 5 feet away to avoid a ricochet and to avoid losing your bolt/ arrow. Never attempt to “un-cock” your crossbow by hand or with a cocking rope.

How do I know when to replace my string? Submitted by: Becky  Avatar Image

If you notice that your string has broken or severely frayed strands, you should immediately replace both your string and cables.  String life expectancy depends on the volume of shooting and the care of the string.  We recommend waxing your string and cables with Zebra Brand High Performance String Wax to increase the longevity of your string.
