    It could be that someone had a lefthand Jaguar riser and bolted the limb cups and limbs from a newer Jaguar take-down on to it.

    That's what I was thinking. Someone had a riser from whatever model and just put recurve limbs on it.

    I thought this myself but these parts make me think it is a martin, first could have took from a martin bow and bolted on but the second just seem like they are meant to be there. They Say Martin part or pat number 559,516,8 not sure if it's a part number or patent number.

    Only I could find the most mysterious bow in the world haha. The reason I thought it might be a tracer takedown was where the original owner mentioned it plus I found a tracer take down on amazon but couldn't get a good look at the picture but it seems very close:

    My only concern in the end though is if I can get parts for it like replacement limbs for it if one ever cracks. I wonder if the Jaguar limbs would work in it?

    thanks for the link bfisher!
    Its a Tracer, same as the one in the Amazon ad: same triangle shaped VEM, same holes in the riser.

    This is a 2006 Jaguar Mag. Right hand. It's in my basement.

    I vote for a Tracer too.

    My 07 Jaguar and my sister's 05 Jaguar look the same as Spiker's Jag.

    thanks guys for all the help and advice. I ended up getting ordering the NAP center rest and a new string for it. hopefully will be able to set up my nocking point once I get my rest installed.
