I bought this minty CT made SBL off a member here for my son who's about to graduate High School and just recently picked it up. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet.....got to wait for him to go to school and sneak it out and get the scope sighted in! ;D

I took the Bushnell Banner shotgun scope off and put a Leupold scout scope on as soon as I got it......I like the looks of the silver scope on this SBL. I'm going to be making him a safety delete and add a saddle ring real soon. He likes the one I made for my GS so I figure I'd do one up for him too. What ya think?

Before.....with the Bushnell it came with.


After....with the Leupold scout scope.

;D I'm hearing that!

He is my oldest son, he has 2 older sisters and 1 younger brother. He's a real good kid and deserves it....afterall, he's had to put up with me for 18yrs now! ;D

Steve, this is great!

I hope he holds on to it and passes it down to his son.

I recently inherited (from my Granddad to my Dad, then to me) my Granddad’s Browning A5. He purchased it new in 1919.

You did a good thing here! Proud of the son and his dad!

Thanks fellas for all the positive comments!

I should mention too, once I give him this rifle I'm going to tell him that it's time he joined and becomes a member of MO's.
This will make him a 3rd generation member of MO's. My dad (S.B.) is also a member...... and posted on this thread.

Great present Steve!
Looks good I like the silver scope been thinking about doing that to my SDG.
I will never forget my graduation present, a canoe trip to canada but those are long long past memories.

My old eyes need a scope is that scope for him or you! ;D

Six, great job. I'm sure your son will love that rifle. Wonder what you will get him if and when he graduates college. A Corvette maybe ;D ;D ;D
