    The limb bolts can be adjusted just like any other bow. Yeah this one is old!

    If I did that, it wouldn't seem like such a "run" on the ol' Cougars then!

    I was recently given an m-15 cougar magnum, unfortunately it is left handed and I am right handed. Is there an inexpensive way to remedy this problem? thanks, Luke

    i also need to replace the bow string. does anyone know what size and type bow string is needed?
    regards,

    I too have a all original and mint 1982 Martin Cougar I shoot at least once a week, let me put it this way, if it cannot stand a bow press it won't stand an arrow at full draw. I think your Pro Shop is scamming you to either bow a new (er) bow or they noticed something on the limbs such as cracks. My Martin also has 20 year old wood limbs and hits the bow press at least twice a year for string changes and maintenance.

    So if you can fire arrows out of it no problem and are accurate, your bow should be fine in a bow press.

    Swap the riser to Right Hand (I am sure some here may have a RH Riser for sale) and move the wheels and cables to the other side and you're good to go.

    Take off your old cables and measure em, and order new ones based on the old measurements.

    I just picked up a Cougar Magnum like the one in the picture. Number CLXM 39161 2 is what I make out on the limbs. Anyone got a manual for it. This is my first compound bow. Just getting my feet wet and don't know much about them at this point.
