    How old is this Ben Pearson Compound?

    I have a Ben Pearson bow that is so old it is not in Pearson's oldest catalog and they say they have no record of it. I would like to know how old it is and the approximate value. It is in mint condition! The stickers say Ben Pearson 12GA Magnum.....
    Anyone??

    Addendum: i meant to mention in the above post that I have just taken this bow out of retirement. I am at age 70 and have not loosed an arrow for about 30 years. Also I have cataract in right eye, everything is pretty blurry. I set the magnum up and fired a few at 15X and got a three shot group 2 1/2" diameter about 3 inches off center. Not bad for two old codgers working together. I will try to attach pics, Love to know more about this bow

    How old is this Ben Pearson Compound?

    I have one at the shop, new oldie, just never sold. I believe in the early 1980s. I know a person that bought a 20 ga. Pearson. I'll ask him for a closer date.

    This is on the Pearson site. Catalogs are huge in volume - I'm on dial up and it would take forever to look at all

    I have a Browning Nomad from 1984. By the similar design, I'm guessing they are from the same era.

    Mine is wrapped in camo. Without the wrap, my bow has a wood riser and black limbs. Eccentrics even look similar.

    Good Luck I retired mine in 2008. Never killed anything with it.

    Oh, well wait, yes I did kill a possum on campus when I was in college. There is a story behind that I'm not real proud of.

    I purchased a new Pearson 12ga around 1984.
    I remember the bow shot well.

    The top bow is older, doesn't have adjustable wheel like the lower one does, I would say between 1980 & 84.

    your in the same province as me. Value is minimal. Likely late 70s-maybe early 80s

    never followed Pearson..

    The one I have pictured above was brand new, just never sold, and the owner closed the shop due to health issues and later passed away around late 1980s. His son re-opened the archery shop in 2008. We had right at 27 older Pearsons, but the wood riser above was the only wood riser. Sold off a few, but still have maybe 20. These are also new never sold oldies. All are target bows, no camo.

    I sold the wood riser above for $100.00 or $110.00, can remember for sure. It was wanted for nostalgia reasons.
