There are a few stupid Browning models that take a 5/32, but almost all the rest are 3.16".

***Warning***
The next thing you read will be my attempt at humor.

Many people will tell you that there's no such thing as a dumb question. Many people have just changed their minds.

***This ends my humorus attempt.***

Out of curiosity, Why do you ask? You do know that turning limb bolts without knowing the right way cand lead to serious injury?

just heard a story last week about a local guy deciding to break his bow down. he just put it between his legs and backed the top limb bolt out all the way. he didn't know he could fly until then.

my neighbors co-worker got a new string for christmas. this is a full grown man. he was very excited and wanted to install it right away. he put his 70 lb compound in the old recurce position with his leg through it, applied a little pressure to the limbs, reached around and cut his string in half with a pocket knife. do not try this at home.

Oh man. Maybe not being able to pass on those genes was meant to be.

Good night.

Oh my goodness.


LOL.
