My neighbor came over and saw my r7 with arrows and brought bk a memory of arrows he once used and he dug out a v1 and gave it to me , it has no face or knobs , its on version 2.8.9 or 289 , if anyone has a broken v1 and can part with face and knobs let me know im interested , ck out picture to see , ive never used a v1 .
I set it up and have been running it for 2 days , seems to work fine .

It's a 1.7 hardware. It still has the individual bands. If you want older get the one without any band LEDs ;)

This is the one you have

That's nice of your neighbor to let you have it! I hope you find a parts donor.

I still have one of my earliest (might be my first) V1. It's a HW version 1.7 with 2.693 firmware.
Last 4 digits are 0492. I'm keeping it though for the sake of comparison, as I also have a couple
of 3.8952's that I run JBV1 with.

It’s outdated and it’s the old hardware that doesn’t have Ka guard and also doesn’t have the newer hardware that doesn’t come out of tune. It’s trash or trade-in value, but I dunno with that missing faceplate.

It’s probably way out of tune. The old units tended to drift over time. If your serious about keeping it, I’m sure Valentine Research would be able to tune it up for you.

Na i dont think its worth sending in , i run a R7 so no big deal , mayb randenso takes trades on theia !!! I think its 200 to send it in to valintine , not worth it to me. Escort i think , trade in is 80 but i think im done with escort after the r360c flop , glad i didnt jump on that grenade !!

Run the serial on Valentine’s site if you haven’t already. It’ll most likely tell you it’s a trade-in, but not sure if they’ll take it in that shape, as I said before.
