The "45x-28" means that is is 45 pounds of draw weight at a 28" draw. O0

I'm guessing the string length is the 62, which sounds about right.  23095 may be the serial number or date code, not sure.

Do a Google search on the bow and you'll probably find out anything and everything you could ever hope to know about it. O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Your right on the draw weight. If your draw length is say 30" would bump your weight up to 48-49lbs. I shoot a 45lb. and my drawl is 32" so in reality, Im shooten at 52-54lbs. Your 62" is your AMO on it. So it would be your string length. I started with a person recurve. 50lb. 28" and the AMO was 54".
