So I sold my house and made a little profit. I told my wife that I was going to treat myself to nice rifle with a little of my share lol. I was about to buy one of the new 1894 CST .357s until I found out about the stock material. Not the worst stock by any means, but I've never spent this much on a firearm before, so I wanted real "hardwood". I went back to finding a JM .357. I bought this one online a little over a week ago and picked it up today. The bullseye was swapped out for a sling swivel, but it came with the factory hammer spur.. fair trade I suppose. Minor freckling on receiver and a knick here and there in the wood, but overall really nice shape. I have a vintage, glossy 4x Redfield waiting to go on it as soon as I can find the right Allen wrench to get this BSA off. I'm really not a fan of see thru mounts, mostly because they never line up right, but these ones do. So for now I guess I'll see how they grow on me. I'm beyond happy with this rifle and hopefully I'll get to shoot in the next week or so. Oh.. it's 1982. First year for no gold trigger. Although, the trigger pull on this one is a little heavy. So I may purchase the gold RPP trigger and kill two birds with one trigger.
