John at bow oven

After over 55 years in archery, I have retired from shooting to concentrate on family.

I have also decided to cease the manufacture of complete Target and Medieval crossbows and recurve bows. I will continue as best can to build Longbows and CONTENDER crossbow limbs while the body allows. We will continue to supply spare parts and accessories until stocks are exhausted or on a case by case basis.

Ausbow Industries will also stop importing any Sporting crossbows, in particular EXCALIBUR and associated accessories. We will continue to supply accessories until stocks are exhausted.

Ausbow Industries will continue to supply and make bowmaking materials and bowmaking books for the foreseeable future.

I wish to thank all our loyal customers over the last 25 years full time and part time since about 1975 in various guises.

I also wish to thank Excalibur Crossbow Inc. for looking after us so well for over 25 years.

Yours in the bow.

John Clark

Director, Ausbow Industries
