Hello all, new to this forum. I was just gifted this C riser takedown. It's C-1021, with B stamped after the serial number. I think that indicates it was purchased by a Bear employee. I have the original matching number limbs, string with old peep and kisser button, and sight. It all comes in the original case with a few broadheads. She's in beautiful shape and shoots like a dream with a new string.

Earlier this year or late last year i managed to get my hands on a bear take down. The type ive been wanting since i was probably 7 or 8. Since i grew up to be fairly tall, when i started my search i decided to look for a c riser, and found one.
It seems to be a 1969 or 70 model, with a serial number of C-1169. It seems to still have the original finish on it. It also still has the original magnetic rest and berger button. Also installed is a adapter for a stab which i believe was done at the factory. The only modifications i see on it is 3 screw holes on the belly of it and 3 on the back from a sight mount. It came with an old jennings sight installed. It does still have the brown bears on the latches too.
The white tip limbs it came with seem to have been refinished with what looks like a gloss white before the finish was reapplied. The limb serial does not match the riser so i suspect that the limbs were either traded for or a replacement set was gotten for it for one reason or other. I wanted to let you know so you could update your list of known c risers, if need be. I can try to get good pics if needed.

Sounds like a nice find.Just to let you know,the risers did not come with matching serial number limbs.Some guys,like myself,find it to be another fun part of collecting Bear risers and limbs to find a riser and a set of matching numbered limbs.But both could be bought separately.So your limbs may or may not have been bought with your riser.

Thank you for that input. I wondered why the limbs had a serial just north of 2200. That explains it. The limbs are a nice light 33@28, which allows for a good form bow. I may eventually look for a set of heavier limbs, too.
