SAS Survival Bow RECON Version (55# Draw Weight)
Made in the USA in a very limited quantity, 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.
Note that this bow is 24.3 inches long and is designed for fast deployment and no need for any assembly, so does not fit into one-day packs like its smaller brother the 21″ SAS Tactical Survival Bow. If you need a bow for a small pack then the Tactical Edition is the bow for you. If you don’t mind a longer bow then this Recon Edition will not only deploy faster, but needs no reversal of limbs or removal of pivot pins screws.

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 archery 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.

Please note that we do not accept returns for bows that have been strung up. Should you wish to return your bow for whatever reason after receiving it you must not attempt to string the bow.
