I have an old Browning Nomad compound that the limbs are cracked. I was looking at the riser, which is beautiful wood and got to wondering why can't I buy some limbs and put on the riser and have another nice recurve? The limbs are held on with large hex head bolts, similar to the ones on my Samick Sage.

I'm reluctant to just go buy some limbs and try it due to cost , some of those limbs are expensive, but has anyone already tried this with a different type riser?

I also don't want a situation where a bow comes apart on me at full draw...

Critch, welcome to Tradtalk.
IF you can post a link showing THAT riser, or a picture here, someone here can better tell you a potential yes or no thought process on it's success.
I googled it and there are several varieties of the NOMAD compound.
I had a WARF riser for a while that was a beautiful wood Browning compound riser.
One possibility will be that you could WARF it to ILF using the Lancaster ILF pocket hardware......limb pocket angles might possibly need altered, as they might initially be too shallow or too steep to make a decent shooter.
