LH 50# Howatt Cavalier

PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING A BOW  (Note: I no longer  ship outside the U.S. - No longer to Canada or other International)


  • Here is the list of traditional and vintage bows currently offered for sale. All have been recently shot and tested.  Due to the age of these bows, we cannot guarantee or warranty any of them.  Shoot them at your own risk.  We 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. Remember, most of these bows are 40-60 years old. Some have had a lot of use. Even though we clean them up and recondition them to varying degrees, they are used bows, some with flaws.  We obviously can't spend $300+ dollars in time and materials to recondition a bow with a market value of $125 or so. So don't expect to receive a flawless bow that looks like it just came from the factory floor. 
  • Bows generally come with a new string unless otherwise indicated. 
  • 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. 
  • We 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.  We we 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 and I don't "negotiate" prices.  
  • Returns are subject to a restocking fee and other terms and conditions.  When you purchase through us you agree to our terms and conditions.   
  • I no longer sell outside the U.S. If someone buys a bow to be shipped outside the U.S., the purchase will be refunded LESS the Paypal transaction fees (5%).   
  • 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 and/or serial number 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 shipping and total cost​.
