Hello all first post new to the sight. I stumbled upon a Groves spitfire magnum at an auction yesterday that was bundled with a couple other bows and got them cheap. This bow caught my eye but don't really know much about it. Admittedly I'm not a traditional guy but have shot traditional before and really just enjoy shooting. This bow is probably a 8-9/10 but could probably use a light cleanup. Can you guys help me out with info on this bow. History, age, value. Anything really. It needs a string so would like to find one for it, it's a 60 in. I believe. Thanks in advance.

Use a bow loader to string it or you will wreck it. I have one, they are just about one of the nicest shooting recurves around and fast.

Contact Rick Rappe at classicbows.net. Awesome guy. He wrote three books called Vintage Bows I,II and III. They have some good info on Groves. They are a high quality vintage bow. Rick can give you some good info by phone or email I bet. Good luck!
