Can Anyone identify this bow?
« on: January 22, 2019, 05:27:40 PM »
I have had this old Magnesium Riser recurve around for several years.  It has a twisted limb and needs to be refinished.  However, I would really like to figure out who made it.  The decal is in bad shape and i can only make out part of the information.  It was made in ________ Spring, Missouri and it says Custom Made.  There is part of a model or maker that ends with "neer".  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

I’d put this on Trad history collecting.  Some experts over there

Thanks Charlie!!   Any guess on what year it may have been built?  Late 60's?

I believe the name of the bowyer who made the mountaineer was Bob Richards. I know the last name was Richards. There were weird looking wood riser ones and metal riser ones. They disappeared in the 70's when Allen came out with the compound bow. Probably built in mid 60's to early 70's. it was said they were good shooting bows.
