Is this a vintage Martin Onza? Doesn't say Onza anywhere...
Hello, hello. I have an old Martin that I believe to be an Onza because it looks exactly like the 90s Onza but it does not say Onza on it anywhere. In pretty much every picture I've seen the Onza's have a wooden handle and a wood inlay that actually says "Onza" on it as well as limbs that say the same. My bow does not have Onza on the limbs or the insert. The grips are white as well as the shelf insert and the insert image is different from any other I've seen. I've also never come across one with the same color scheme, which looks original to me. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Yep. Basically the first bridged riser design. A lot of firsts in the archery industry that Martin pioneered. First single cam? Thank Martin for that.

I'm with you all; it's an Onza but I'm curious as to why my grip and insert are so different than any other Onza I've seen.

Maybe the painted "target" bows were set up like that.

That is what I'm thinking but I can't find any pictures of other Martin Onzas that look similar to confirm. My neighbor, that has been harassing me to buy it for years, says he has never seen another Onza like it but I'm sure there must be another.
