    Really like mine so far. none of the horror story issues you read about.

    Only complaint is that the blueing is rather thin compared to many other rifles I've handled.

    I just bought a new GBL this week. It did not have any obvious flaws, but when I took it apart to clean the interior parts I ran into a problem. There were none of the metal shavings that have been mentioned in other threads, but I couldn't get it back together! I spent over 2 hours trying to get the hammer screw back in place. The screw hole on the left ear of the trigger plate was just a little off. After I finally figured that out I was able to open it up a touch with a round file. No more problems. The gun looks good and feeds my handloads with no difficulty. I think I'm going to really like this gun.

    I just got mine a few days ago. Fit and finish is pretty good. Haven't run any rounds through it yet...

    I picked up my new 1895GBL on valentines day. mr serial no. mine is great and I love it. I also bought a walnut wood set because I also did not think I would like the plywood stock set. Yes it has grown on me and Im going to leave it as is and save the walnut for another gun. I dont know how to post pictures. If some one would guide me in the right direction I would be happy to post some. Just my opinion but I would only buy a rifle that I could inspect in person before shelling out the money for it. Rick!

    Sharpshooter, here's mine...I picked through a bunch to find her, you'll more than likely have to do the same. Once in my hands, I worked over the action with 3 grits of lapping compound to smooth it up, still have to do the action job laid out elsewhere on this forum, but I'm very happy with the rifle at this time. It shoots very nicely and really gets the AR/AK boys attention at the range!
