Someone may say, that is special about this kodiak, I think an exaggerated price, I've seen expensive but that price has impressed me

US $1,775.00

The length & maple sight window are a little bit rarer than other configurations, but that price is pretty inflated for the current market - nice one, though!

It has a low serial number...maybe that has something to do with it? Jim

Lucky seller! The rascal found at least two guys wanting that thing and not afraid to pay for it. :D

From one extreme to the other. Check this one out that sold a few days ago. Cody sent this link to me. I sure wish I had seen it.

The reason this bow is going so high is that there are no other known 1959 Kodiaks in 56" that have the maple sight window. This is an extremely rare bow and the price reflects it.

Jim, that's the same bow before it was all cleaned up. I'm sure the guy just ended the auction early when he got a big offer. This thing will go for $2500 bucks. :shock: :shock: :D

EDIT. I looked at the link and it was a buy it now for $89!!! Lucky SOB!! :lol:

I'm in this kodiak bid. Am I pushing too much, someone hooked on the bid? some advice, as they could pay for it?
I want to make a replica, do you have plans or something that someone can help me do?
