    From my understanding, they are trying to sell the company and have been for awhile. I would not worry about it too much.

    Now keep in mind I DIDNT here this from Gail or any of the family but second hand,,,,,,

    But last I heard the best offer they have had was from one of the winery's down the road for the land and buildings and if that happens, who knows what will happen to the Martin brand.....

    I dont shoot them any more but Id hate to see any thing bad happen to the brand, as I shot them most of my life and they really are nice bows.. Only time will tell I guess

    Rumors to many rumors.....look at all these rumors surrounding me every day...lol...if Martin Archery was no more then so be it if their sold they live on so be it.....They are an American Icon, innovators in many archery aspects.
    Same as Elite Archery....they were a Washington State company bought and sold moved to up state NewYork, now look at them.
    I'm a local Native (WA) so if Martin Archery was gone there still is BowTech in Oregon.
