The Warrior was a mid line hunting model and I suspect, without seeing it, it is mid to late 60's. It will make you a good functional bow, not fancy but fancy doesn't pull the string. ). Enjoy.

Looks like a nice bow. Not so sure your dog likes it though, looks a little worried. I have a similar Indian bow and it shoots very well.

That square IA silkscreen tells me late 60's or early 70's.

yeah thats marley she hates all my bows cause one time i played one like an upright bass and she ran for the hills (bedroom) dont like my guitar either. I must be a horrible player. Thats awesome news I had no idea it was that old thank you very much everyone. Gotta make some arrows for it but im shootin that sucker tomorrow with carbons and twisters cause i cant find feathers just yet. Do you think 550 para cord will be ok for about ten shots or so Ive used it on some pretty strong pvc bows Ive made at least 40#. Never broke one yet but I dont wanna break this bow being stupid. Just got an old browning cobra all set up with a flip up rest and learned how to tie my own d loops so now im using a release with it. Surprised myself with accuracy improvement. But Ill never be a total convert Ive loved recurves sine i was a teen ager and that was a while ago. Fingers and feathers for me is where its at.

I've never built a string, but if I were going to, it would never occur to me to use paracord.

Ever.

8 bucks. I think a 12-strand would suit you just fine, but maybe you could go to 10 if you want to hot-rod it a little.....

Barry Hughes, who goes by stilldub, is a Leatherwall member and can make you a B-50 string for $9.00 shipped and it will be very well made. He sells on Ebay. I have probably half a dozen of his string, both low stretch and Dacron, and you won't find any better. He also is very prompt. 12 strands is plenty and you can pick your color.
