RH 50# York Thunderbolt

PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING A BOW  (Note: I do not  currently sell outside the U.S. and Canada)


  • All of the bows I sale have been recently shot and tested.  I try to describe them accurately in the listing. The photos are high resolution and you can enlarge the PDF to get a better picture of the condition of the bow. Due to the age of these bows, I cannot guarantee or warranty any of them.  Shoot them at your own risk.  Most of these bows are 40-65 years old. Some have had a lot of use, and probably should not be shot on a frequent basis. 
  • Bows DO DOT come with a string or rest unless otherwise indicated or pictured. (I don't currently sell/stock strings and find folks want their own type of rest and string type/color).
  • View the pictures as they are a large part of the bow's description.  Click the "Click Here for a full description and photos" to view a PDF file of the detailed description of the bow and accompanying photos.  The bow description flyer is set to pop up in a new tab. Make sure your settings allow for pop up tabs. 
  • I currently accept major credit cards through PayPal.  Click the PayPal "Buy Now" button to the right of the bow you are purchasing (each Buy Now button is unique to that specific bow), or log into your own PayPal account and send payment.  When you click the "Buy Now" button you will be redirected to the secure PayPal site. Please click the little drop down caret character (       ) to the right of the $XXX USD (                                               ) to verify that it is the right bow.




  • The short description for the bow in question is just abovethe "Buy Now" button.
  • Note: The "Buy Now" button is not available on mobile devices.  I also accept a personal check or money order (sent payable to Don Morrison, 1231 Farallone Ave., Fircrest WA  98466).   Note: All checks and money orders will need to clear your bank before the bow is shipped, 
  • I try and describe the bows accurately, and price them reasonably.  Prices are fixed.  I don't "negotiate" prices, so please don't ask.  If a bow turns out to have been overpriced, I will eventually reduce the price until it hits a proper price point. 
  • Unless i shipped the wrong bow, returns are subject to a restocking fee and other terms and conditions.  When you purchase a bow you agree to the terms and conditions.   
  • We do not sell/ship outside the U.S. and Canada.  Any Canadian orders require a $20US S&H surcharge.  
  • Bow Description notes: The year is the known or estimated year of manufacture. This was derived from knowledge of the owner, or through our own catalog or other research. We may be off a bit on some of the bows and don't guarantee accuracy. The Draw weight is at 28 inches unless stated otherwise.  The length is the AMO length.  See the detailed description for S&H and total cost​.  Bows are usually shipped USPS Priority Mail. Special requests to ship UPS or FedEX require an additional $15 S&H charge. On average, the postage amounts to only 52% of the total packaging, shipping and handling costs. S&H charges rarely cover the full cost of S&H.
