NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) – 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 $500 and $1,500 at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, Kinsey’s Archery and Pape’s, as well as online and in catalogues.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says no injuries have been reported, but owners should stop using the crossbows and return them to the PSE for repairs.

Customers can call PSE at 800-477-7780 or visit. http://www.tacseries.com/crossbow-recall.

PSE is based in Tuscon, Arizona.  The crossbows were made in the U.S. and China.
