I have a recurve bow that was made by my father during the 1950's. He worked for a West Pa. bow manufacturer for a short time. Unfortunately, ther are no markings on the bow. I believe during this time period, there were at least two bow manufacturers in the Pittsburgh area and I think Cravotta Bros was one of them. This bow was not made at Cravottas, does anyone here know the names of any other boyers that were operating at the time? I think that I would recognise the name if I see it,
Thanks

Colt Archery started in 1961. As near as I can tell it stopped production after 1967. Colt bows were made by Wing Archery at the Jacksonville, Texas plant. If you run across a bow marked with a "COBRA" emblem, look close, it is one of bows in the Colt line of bows. The Colt seconds were sold by Ben Pearson under the "COBRA" name.
