    whats wrong with yours and if nothing just paint it i know a few people on here that paint them so if you dont have one buy a old one then buy one and get it painted look on pege 2 or 3 or 4 maybe 5 or 6 i know i saw one recently on here

    I'd sugest powder coating rather than paint, if the hunt for a black riser gets too long for you, meantime keep watching the classifieds, both here and on ArcheryTalk.

    just search your local yellow pages for powdercoaters. i stripped my Cheetah to bare metal and dropped it off. $20 and 3days later...

    the pics dont do it justice. some acetone(nail polish remover),a scotch brite pad,a small wire brush,and some elbow grease to get the old finish off.

    I'd also recommend powder coating. It's just a better looking, much more durable finish.

    Default 09 firehawk

    im not looking for one to paint or powdercoat i am looking to replace the one ive got because the limb bolts were bottommed out in the riser and according to my dealer the original bolts were to long and they replaced the bolts but the bolt and washer still hang over the end of the riser its the same problom my dad had on his firehawk about a month ago and they fixed it with a new riser and now they wont fix mine dealer says martin no longer makes the riser and im stuck with it which i find hard to believe because the just put a new riser on my dads bow less than a month ago

    Do you mean the bolts bottom out in the riser so that the limbs can not be fully seated.?

    If the bolts bottomed out in the riser either - the bolts were too long or the hole in the riser is to shallow.
    Either way - this should be a simple fix.

    in your post it said you were just looking for a black riser and you did not state a problem with yours so we all thought you might just want a black riser.so there ya go
