It looks like it has been barely shot for being 60 years old.

Went to Reds at lunch and 20 minutes later walked out with this neat revolver.
Nice!

Finished my SBR build. Just waiting on stamp

Billet receiver set
Prw 223 wyldie 10.375
ALG ACT trigger
ALG foregrip
Magpul stock and hand grip
SLR Rifleworks adjustable GB
Gemtech qd flash hider/suppressor mount
KNS pins
Magpul pro sights

I need to weigh it but it is nice.


Then I have a Ruger American Magnum Rifle in 300wm coming too
It will have Accupower 4.5-14x50 mounted up top for my Laguna Atascosa trip.

So you made an SBR before you received the stamp to make an SBR?

I was thinking the same thing! Judging by the pics, im going to assume it is either at a dealer, or it is a stock pic pulled off the net like the bolt gun in the post.

Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians!

I should have mentioned that pic was taken at the dealer. I just played with it a little bit. He will transfer it to me when my stamp comes in.

Help me understand. Is this a form 1 SBR or a form 4 SBR? I didn't think a regular FFL could slap together an SBR out of parts and hold it for the customer while he waits. Maybe I'm wrong. You said "transfer it to me" so I'm confused.

OR you can buy a pistol lower until the stamp comes in.

Mine is a form 4. My understanding is they can have it built in there possession and upon my stamp they will give it to me. I did it through there silencer shop kiosk.

Right, but that's not what he did. There's clearly a rifle stock attached in the pic.

Ok this makes sense now. Not many people go the Form 4 factory SBR route. Gun looks good.

Thanks. It seemed the easiest to do. Im not sure why you need all of the trust stuff if you can do it as an individual.

Just picked up the Remington Rand 1911 from 1945. All proof marks match up along with the mainspring housing.

Everything is original except the magazine. Previous owner added some stipling (sp?) in the front of the grip.

I will break it down tonight to confirm the barrel marks.

This bad boy is ready! Finally got it back yesterday from the gunsmith who mounted a Weigand rail on top. Topped it with a Burris Fast Fire red dot. Took it out this morning and shot 5 different loads through it. Finally settled on a 240 grain xtp (for now) being pushed by 21 grains of 2400. An inch high at 50 was an inch low at 100. The group with this load was 1.25" at 50. Finished it with a homemade holster.

Nice gun, again. My next gun is a 454 Casul, and I've not heard much about the Raging Bull in 454. Strictly for grizzly bear defense.

Yes I think it was his powder charge of choice. And no I don't have a chronograph but just going off the manuals, I'm guessing it's in the 1300 fps range.

Oh well, these sights were outdated and night sights will be on order...I will deal with the bbl with rounds down range.

I picked up a couple of Performance Center 45's. I've lusted after the 625 for a year, and finally picked one up. The PC Shield 45 was too good of a deal to pass up as well. Can't wait to get back from the current work trip to give them some range time, after I get both of my sons out in the woods for the base youth hunt. Rut should be just kicking off when I get back in a couple weeks

Cool.

Prices range all over the place from $900 to $2500 or more.

Broke down the gun and found out the barrel is original.
