I don't recognize the exact model of that bow but its probably 20 years old or more. those bows had limited a limited draw length range and not a lot of let-off. I'm not sure what your budget is but I would make sure the draw length was adjustable to yours and I wouldn't offer him much money for it,

oh, and to the forum

I wouldnt pay $250 for that.

for $50 more you could have a new bow like the one in the link below.

if you wanted to buy used you could get a newer bow for $250. check the classifieds here and at archerytalk.com

yeah that looks like a Bowtech Stalker from 2005 or so. it would make a good bow if you can find the draw length module to get it to fit you. how much does he want for it?
