    Recurve Riser ILF. Need to Identify Make & Model

    Hiya
    I just picked up a cheap Left Hand Riser & limbs off an auction site.
    Sold as a 3 piece Axiom (SF) set up.
    The limbs are Axiom.
    The Riser has no decal or markings to identify it.

    The limb/tiller bolts are loose and can screw all the way in and out with finger pressure.
    So first thing I did was assumed there is a missing lock washer/nut on the back.
    Searching the internet it doesn't appear to be an Axiom riser.

    The guy who sold it - bought as a job lot and assumed it was an Axiom because of the limbs.

    If anyone can identify the riser... I could seek out the correct parts!
    Many thanks in anticipation...

    That's a Petron Pro Extreme, sold by Chiltern Archery.

    I don't deal with them, but they're the ones to talk to if you need replacement parts. Though to be honest, I think a decent hardware shop might be able to help you.

    Yes it is....
    many thanks indeed. I've been looking at so many riser images its been driving me mad!
    I was looking into just putting a washer & nut on it.
    Undoubtedly the cheapest route.
    Cheers!!!

    Aren't those the locking screws on the back?
    The way this works, if I'm seeing it correctly, is that you hold the limb bolt in place and tighten the countersunk screw which is threaded into the middle of it. That expands the split section on the limb bolt, which locks it in place.
    Or do you mean that it's not locking even when you tighten the locking bolt?

    <edit> image2 shows the locking mechanism 3 times, once from the side in the left hand frame and twice in close-up on the right.

    Thats the way it works on my other risers!
    This countersunk screw is all the way in but doesn't expand the tiller bolt to stop it going through...
    thats why I figured there may be something missing?
    My other thought was that they are the wrong tiller/limb bolts... but the thread seems correct.

    Hmmm. I wonder. Take the countersunk screws out and take a look inside the tiller bolt. If you see a hex socket in there, that's the actual locking screw. Other times I've seen this kind of lock it's more like a large grub screw, than a countersunk bolt...
    Speculation: someone had a couple pf countersunk screws (sight block screws?) and didn't know what to do with them...
