Well I've been looking for a inexpensive recurve for a bowfishing rig. So I spoke with a older gentalman in town the shoots trad only and has done so for years, I asked if he might have an old spare boow laying around he might be willing to part with for a fair price. A few days later he brings this old painted bow into the store where I work It was set up with 45# limbs and also had a set of 65# limbs for it. I liked liked what I saw and asked what he wanted for it and he replied with nonthing as he has a Bob Lee and Howard Hill bows but said I might want to take the paint off of it. Couldn't believe his generosity, well anyway I stripped the paint off sanded it down and now have a few coats of linseed oil on it, needless to say i'm stuned. The riser has 2430 WHD and 22147 on it and the limbs are similary marked with mod#s and poundages. Does anyone have any info on who might have been the manufactuer and about when it was made or any other info about it.

Thanks guys after more research it appears to be a late 70s to earley 80s Martin Wart Hog that used the riser from the compound version.
