Today a friend calls me and asks if I wanna take a ride to a local gun shop. Seems they have a estate sale and have a bunch of re loading stuff at very good costs. I say yes and we go...
I found a lot of loading stuff bullets primers and powder.. I find about $50 in stuff I have to have. ;) (You know how it is I am sure. ;) )
Then I bring it up the register and what do I see on the rack behind the guy??? A short stock and skinny barrel that can only be a PAPOOSE!! :p :eek: :rolleyes: ;) :p :D :bthumb:
It is very good condition, looking closer I done even see a mark on it... the guy said its been here a while. (I know I haven't seen it) He goes on the say its been in the back, They just put it on the shelf last week.
Well there isn't a mark on the magazine, the barrel is spotless and doesn't have a hint of solvent smell... I would not be at all surprised to hear it was unfired!!
I put it back and said I would think on it, I agree and say but your gonna throw in some ammo...RIGHT?

Here she is!!




Good things to those who wait I guess!! Happy camper here!!!

Anyone wanna help with a year of manufacturer? #0940XXXX

I've wanted one for a while. I hope you enjoy it twice as much as you always thought you would. What are your optics plans if any?

If anything, maybe a red dot... problem is its a 3.8'' groove and not many quality red dots use that.

I removed and stored the factory sites and installed a easier to see ''glow worm'' front and "V" rear in a Williams base. Then I added the much needed sling studs. One in butt and one under barrel as the new 70PPS uses.

Congrats, she sure looks sweet. I've always thought it would be neat to have one myself. Enjoy...

I changed my rear site again... ;) I was looking at it and realized as its a Williams, its dovetail is same as a peep aperture...SO, that's what I put in it!! I LIKE IT ALLOT BETTER!! ZERO worries about sight shift from take down.
