I would rather spend 5 weeks without a new bow than spend 5 minutes researching a solution. However, that’s just me.

I don't disagree with you. However, there are lots of conversations on here about how Bear should do more custom hand work on their bows. That's the danger of custom hand work. Especially when the riser isn't there to fit the limbs to.

I'm not sure how those brackets are made but if they are cast and a hair different between lots then it would be difficult for Bear to keep a perfect tight alignment between risers and limbs. I have 3 risers and 6 sets of limbs and they fit different between the risers and while some may be tight and some loose they do line up in the bracket. I bought two new sets of limbs and one had be tinkered with to make it fit and the other fit fine.

Now you can put 30 year old Widow limbs on new riser and the alignment pins and hole will match perfectly, vice versa as well, every time.
