Does anyone out there know where I could get aluminum arrows that are swaged at the point end? I have a dozen that were swaged by Montana Bowhunters Supply, but their phone has been disconnected.
I prefer to glue on my traditional broadheads for consistency and ease of tuning.
Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't seen any lately, but they may still be around. I've been using the flight-mate style adapter, that glues into an AL shaft [replacing the rps insert], and has a taper for glueing on trad heads. They work very well and might be an alternative for you.

Why not get some Easton Alluminums (XX75) that have swaged nock ends. Get just the shafts, not the full arrow. Insert a nock to the unswagged end and fletch it. Basically your building the arrow backwards. I think this would work and am thinking about doing it as well.

The flite mate style mentioned is probably your best alternative. Convenient, stronger and more cost effective also.

I have seen swaged shafts advertised recently though. If it comes back to me where I'll post it for you.

I use to get swaged shafting from RJ Archery in Montana. They also swaged shafting for a number of retail dealers. I lost track of RJ years ago after local fires in the Bitteroot Mountains gave them some trouble and don't know where or if they're still swaging.

Thanks guys!
Hey Tim at Braveheart. I just purchased some 125 grain Grizzlys from you on ebay. They are for some unswaged arrows for my elk hunt.
Thanks again!

Hey everyone. I found a shop that swages in Ohio.
Mike's Archery

Ironton, OH. 45638

$10 a dozen and 2-3 days.
They will swage your shafts or you can buy shafts from them. They said they carry a full line of Easton shafts.
Thanks again!!

How good of a job does he do? Do they look pretty straight when he's done?

I've had 3 people tell me what a good job he does. I guess I'll find out. I'm sending him 2 dozen shafts tomorrow.
I'll let you know how they come out. I'll even try to post some pics.
