SAS Recon Compact Folding Survival Bow | Pondage: 55# Right Handed Draw


Arrows and accessories not included - bow only*

Made in the USA, the SAS Recon Folding Survival Bow with camo carry bag is the big brother of the SAS Tactical Survival Bow. Designed by experienced engineers who have designed it to withstand many decades of use, this is the fastest deploying compact bow on the market. Like its small brother it stores takedown arrows inside the riser for the perfect compact weapon that you can transport in your bugout bag or other small cargo areas.

The bow employs a novel compact folding system design which allows for a quick conversion from folded storage mode to a weapons-ready state. With arrow speeds topping 200fps this is the perfect silent weapon for where firearms and more bulky bows cannot be used or easily carried.

Converting from left to right hand by simply swapping the bow between hands and the fact that no special tools are required for operation and maintenance, makes this bow easy to use when shared between multiple archers or unit members. The bow comes with a camo carry case that can be worn as a bow backpack, but converts into a quiver for both left and right handed archers. Look no further than the SAS Recon Survival Bow when looking for the perfect all-round silent tactical or bug-out bag weapon for larger packs.

This same surface treatment also allows for a better surface for paint adhesion should you the customer want to employ a camo paint system to the product.
  • Limbs - Made in the USA from the same high quality composite material that is used by nearly all of the big names in the compound bow industry. Our limbs are cut using precision waterjet technology and painted directly at the supplier in order that we can receive a consistent, quality product from the industry's best.
  • Hardware - The retaining pin and retaining pin screw are made of marine grade 316 stainless steel that has been specially chemically treated in order to allow for a black surface treatment to prevent glare. Our supplier is a military vendor who perfected this process over the past decades to ensure a consistent quality finish.
  • Limb securing bolts - The limb securing bolts are made from a high tension steel which offers a high degree of safety to ensure compliance in the field and only requires a light oil from time to time.
