Browning Recurve Serial Number Lookup


Browning Recurve Serial Number Lookup




If you own a Browning recurve bow, you might be curious about its history and value. One way to learn more about your bow is to look up its serial number, which can tell you when and where it was manufactured. However, finding and decoding the serial number on a Browning recurve bow can be tricky, as different models and years have different formats and locations. Here are some tips to help you identify and date your Browning recurve bow.


Where to find the serial number?




The serial number on a Browning recurve bow is usually found on the riser, which is the central part of the bow that connects the limbs. Depending on the model and year, the serial number may be stamped, engraved, or printed on the riser. Some common locations are:

  • On the front of the riser, near the grip or the shelf.



  • On the back of the riser, near the top or bottom limb pocket.



  • On the side of the riser, near the sight window or the quiver mount.



  • On a metal plate or sticker attached to the riser.




Some older models may not have a serial number at all, or may have a partial or illegible serial number due to wear and tear. In that case, you may have to rely on other features, such as the logo, the model name, the limb design, or the accessories, to identify your bow.


How to decode the serial number?




The serial number on a Browning recurve bow can tell you various information about your bow, such as its model, year of manufacture, place of manufacture, and production number. However, there is no universal format for Browning recurve serial numbers, as they changed over time and across different models. Here are some general guidelines to help you decode your serial number:



  • If your serial number consists of only numbers, it is likely from before 1969. The first two digits indicate the year of manufacture, and the remaining digits indicate the production number. For example, 680123 means that your bow was made in 1968 and was the 123rd bow produced that year.



  • If your serial number consists of a letter followed by numbers, it is likely from 1969 to 1975. The letter indicates the place of manufacture: A for Belgium, B for Japan, C for Canada, and D for Korea. The first two digits after the letter indicate the year of manufacture, and the remaining digits indicate the production number. For example, B701234 means that your bow was made in Japan in 1970 and was the 1234th bow produced that year.



  • If your serial number consists of two letters followed by numbers, it is likely from 1976 to 1980. The first letter indicates the model: N for Nomad, C for Challenger, M for Medalist, W for Wasp, and T for Tornado. The second letter indicates the place of manufacture: A for Belgium, B for Japan, C for Canada, and D for Korea. The first two digits after the letters indicate the year of manufacture, and the remaining digits indicate the production number. For example, NA761234 means that your bow is a Nomad made in Belgium in 1976 and was the 1234th bow produced that year.



  • If your serial number consists of three letters followed by numbers, it is likely from 1981 to 1988. The first letter indicates the model: N for Nomad II or Nomad Hunter II (depending on limb design), C for Challenger II or Challenger Hunter II (depending on limb design), M for Medalist II or Medalist Hunter II (depending on limb design), W for Wasp II or Wasp Hunter II (depending on limb design), T for Tornado II or Tornado Hunter II (depending on limb design), S for Stalker II or Stalker Hunter II (depending on limb design), F for Falcon II or Falcon Hunter II (depending on limb design), R for Ranger II or Ranger Hunter II (depending on limb design), E for Explorer II or Explorer Hunter II (depending on limb design), L for Little Bear II or Little Bear Hunter II (depending on limb design), K for Kodiak II or Kodiak Hunter II (depending on limb design), P for Patriot II or Patriot Hunter II (depending on limb design), and H for Hawk II or Hawk Hunter II (depending on limb design). The second letter indicates the place of manufacture: A for Belgium, B for Japan, C for Canada, and D for Korea. The third letter indicates the year of manufacture: A for 1981, B for 1982, C for 1983, D for 1984, E for 1985, F for 1986, G for 1987, and H for 1988. The numbers after the letters indicate the production number. For example, NAC1234 means that your bow is a Nomad II or Nomad Hunter II made in Canada in 1983 and was the 1234th bow produced that year.



  • If your serial number consists of four letters followed by numbers, it is likely from 1989 to 1992. The first letter indicates the model: N for Nomad III or Nomad Hunter III (depending on limb design), C for Challenger III or Challenger Hunter III (depending on limb design), M for Medalist III or Medalist Hunter III (depending on limb design), W for Wasp III or Wasp Hunter III (depending on limb design), T for Tornado III or Tornado Hunter III (depending on limb design), S for Stalker III or Stalker Hunter III (depending on limb design), F for Falcon III or Falcon Hunter III (depending on limb design), R for Ranger III or Ranger Hunter III (depending on limb design), E for Explorer III or Explorer Hunter III (depending on limb design), L for Little Bear III or Little Bear Hunter III (depending on limb design), K for Kodiak III or Kodiak Hunter III (depending on limb design), P for Patriot III or Patriot Hunter III (depending on limb design), and H for Hawk III or Hawk Hunter III (depending on limb design). The second letter indicates the place of manufacture: A for Belgium, B for Japan, C for Canada, and D for Korea. The third letter indicates the year of manufacture: I for 1989, J for 1990, K for 1991, and L for 1992. The fourth letter indicates the month of manufacture: A for January, B for February, C for March, D for April, E for May, F for June, G for July, H for August, I for September, J for October, K for November, and L for December. The numbers after the letters indicate the production number. For example, NAIJ1234 means that your bow is a Nomad III or Nomad Hunter III made in Japan in October 1990 and was the 1234th bow produced that month.
