    Default 09 martin firecat missing side riser plate??

    I have a question; hopefuly someone can help me. I just bought a New 09 LH Martin Firecat. I noticed when I unpackaged it, on the side of the riser where the the arrow rest is supposed to be installed there is a section where it is cut out for a black side plate that it did not bring from the factory. I really would like to get this side plate before I set up the bow.

    Thanks...

    Default This gizmo?

    If this is the part you're talking about, all I know about is that there are differnt thickness of them, this one is from an older Martin Lynx, and is too thick to work on my 2nd Slayer, but the Quiktune 3000 thats on that bow is spanning the gap left by the missing piece. I have no idea what the part is called and have asked several time about it, I do know that I'd like another one to fit a 2006 Slayer.

    Yea that is the part..My Bengal has one, so I assume that if there is a cut out on the riser of the Firecat with bolt patten on the riser already from the factory it should have one...

    The Martin mount is what that cutout is for, and the piece should have been in place when you got the Firecat, if you are the first owner of that bow, let me know if you find out anything about it, I'd like one as well.

    I can't find my 2010 catalog for some reason. Heck, who knows, I might have given it away. Anyway, I went through my 2009 catalog and the on-line store and didn't find it either. Then pulled out my parts list and the only thing I'm finding that fits the description is part # BP-97, U-shaped Inlay.

    My 2008 FireCat came with one, but my 2009 Moab did not. Maybe they quit putting them on the bow. In most cases it won't make any difference as most rests span the slot anyway.

    Yea I'm the first owner, I just received it a few days ago. If that cut out is for the Martin Mount that would be great since I'm gonna install a whisker biscuit anyways but they don't make The original Martin Mount in Black for LH. I have a whisker biscuit from Trophy Ridge on my Bengal & that plate makes a nice flush mounting surface for the bracket.

    So why would the factory keep making the risers with the slot cut out and the pattern with holes for the screws??
