About 2,800 crossbows are being recalled because they may fire without the trigger being pulled.
The crossbows were made by Precision Shooting Equipment and affect some of the TAC Elite, TAC Ordnance and Enigma models.
They were sold between June and November last year for between $600 and $1,500 at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela's, Kinsey's Archery and Pape's, as well as online and in catalogs.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says no injuries have been reported, but owners should stop using the crossbows and return them to PSE for repairs.
Customers can call PSE at 800-477-7789 or visit www.tacseries.com/crossbow-recall/.
PSE is based in Tucson, Arizona. The crossbows were made in the U.S. and China.
