    Question having trouble identifying bow

    Someone gave me a browning compound bnow with no model name on it anywhere. Can someone tell me how to accomplish this? I have a serial # if there is a place to go to run it?

    Sorry yob420 but I do not know much about browning bows. Hopefully someone on here can help you out.

    But let me take this opportunity to say to 3DSHOOTS.

    Default Some hel I hope

    When I first got my martin recurve I emailed the company.
    Several departments within the company as well.

    That got the ball rolling.
    I fould out that my little Martin was made before the company changed hands 35 yrs ago because they kept no records from before that.
    They also offered to buy the Bow in question after they saw the picture.

    Why? I've no Idea.

    Anyway back to the point, try what I did.
    Companies use those serial number in every step of the process, & track them closely.
    Yamaha EX Coumpound, 50#@28", Toxonics sights.
    Bear-BlackBear Compound, 35#@28".
    Martin 35#@28" Recurve.
    AMF- WingArchery Slimline RedWing Pro 45#@28"
    Easton 1816 Lite, 100 gr Fieldpoints.

    Martin Archery is very big into the History of Archery. Check out their site http://archeryhistory.com/ You might get some really nice pictures of that recurve and see what they have in mind. You could pick up some nice $$ or maybe even a new shooter if they want it bad enough.

    Default Logical & interesting

    Makes sense, still to get my Little Martin they would have to buy my soul, & through in a week in Bangkok.

    Default Thank you everyone

    I have the serial # being traced, so I should find out very soon. I also like to shoot Martin bows. I just got a Speed Flight, I'll dial it in and see how well it groups them. Thanks for all the help on the Browning.

    I have shot Martin compounds for years and have found them hard to beat for the price. I just sold my Martin SpeedFire and bought a Ross Cr337, but would not hesitate to buy another Martin. That Razor X is one fine shooting bow. I have my eye on one of their recurves....and the day will come
