    Default Bow Identification

    Greetings! My brother gave me an old bow a few years back. It stayed in the closet for many years but I recently dug it out and am in the process of refinishing it. I have done some searching on the web and think this may be an old Martin bow. If I posted pictures of the bow would anyone here be able to tell me the make and model of the bow or at the very least if it is indeed a Martin bow? I really appreciate any help you all may give.

    Thanks, Poke

    It's quite possible somebody here could identify it. There are some dealers on here and old timers like me that have been around bows for decades. Post your pics.

    Thumbs up That really looks like a piece of history....

    I am also curious what is the heritage of that bow. She must have some story to tell. Hope someone can id it. Looks like an early takedown. I think Bob Lee lays claim to the first 3 piece takedown produced by his company Wing Archery. This is going to be interesting.

    And it looks like Destroyer just showed us the forerunner of the Rytera Seeker in that pic. Notice the Jaguar??????

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.
