In 1990 I visited Virginia and bought a compound bow from a woman placing an ad in the paper. She said it had been her brothers and had been in her garage for "many years". The bow is identified as a Browning Cobra compound, serial number FOA3856. It is a one piece, glass-backed wooden bow with round wheels. There are no other manufacture markings on the bow. When I put it on a scale years ago, it was 47# with a 28" draw.
I contacted Browning Archery, which has been bought out by PSE. They do not have any records of serial numbers, but she said it was probably manufactured between 1979-1986.
I have alkso looked at www.archeryhistory.com and there are no photos or reference to this bow or any single piece compound bow, as they all have limbs bolted to riser.
This bow is very light weight, accurate and a dream to shoot.
Does anybody out there have any information for me on this bow?
