Recall Summary
Name of product: Middleton Siege Crossbows


Hazard:

The crossbow can fire unexpectedly when the auto-safety mechanism appears to be on and the trigger is pulled, posing an injury hazard to the user and bystanders. In addition, the crossbow limbs can crack or break under normal use.

Description

This recall involves "The Siege" hunting crossbows with model numbers 315, 330, 355 and 375. "The Siege" and the model numbers are printed in large lettering directly above the trigger mechanism. "Bohning/Middleton Crossbow," "Patent pending" and serial number are engraved on opposite sides of the rear barrel of each crossbow. The serial number, 12-XXX, is unique for each crossbow. The crossbows measure 36 to 39 inches in length, are camouflage/black in color and have a scope mounted on the top. The crossbows were sold with a scope, arrow quiver, quiver brackets, cocking aid and a string changer.

I'd say that the deal between Bohning and Middleton didn't work out to well. I have never heard of Middleton limb issues before.

I dry fired one over 200 times with a variety of different strings and string materials. Never had an issue with it. It's a pity this partnership didn't work out.
