    Second Generation Jennings Compound Bow revised

    This is the Second Generation Jennings Compound Bow. The first "lefty" Tom Jennings made! Ordered in late 1969 and delivered in early 1970. Beautiful Brazilian Rosewood. Idler pulley and hanger plate is different from the first genertion. Dated and has the original paperwork. Archery was on a new course!!! Dan

    You have very nice early 1970's, probably 1974 "forth generation" Jennings Compound. This was the first model that Tom Jennings mass produced. The wood is ash. Nice bow! Dan

    thanks for the quick reply. i'm planning on just hanging it on the wall is there anything i should do to it to keep it in good condition?

    Just clean it real good and apply a light oil to all the steel parts. Hang it and enjoy. It is a piece of history. Dan

    Is there a hidden serial number on this anywhere cant seem to find one?

    Yes. It is on the top/front fender washer of the upper limb. Behind the allen bolt. I would guess it to be 26,000 range. Dan
