I have one. Bought in 1994. I'm probably the second owner. Bomar sights and FLGR were on it when I got it with a comp trigger. Right now it's being refinished, bobtailed, hand checkered to 25LPI, re-sighted with Novaks Night Sights and fresh springs as the final touch. Of course I'll post pics when I get it back from the 'smith. Here's a before:



Does anyone have one of these relics of the '90s? By the way, I've never had a problem with it that wasn't attributed to poor magazines. It loves Federal Hydroshoks. With these I mainly get around 1.5" groups.

I am really curious as to what she looks like, but man.............I just don't know that I could have brought myself to re-finishing her. I liken' it to an A10.............slow,......butt ugly.........but no matter what an A10 points it's nose at.......when it does...it dies! Period. No exceptions. Therefore.....A10=Absolute Beauty. So when a gun looks tired,but still runs and plays hard..........A10.

Good NEWS!! It's finished!!!! Bad news, my 'smith is so finicky I can't have it until he runs it through his reliablity test :(

I like this guy! I know, pics, but no camera with me at the time. BUT, She looks amazing! Monday for sure :)


Update: PICS PICS PICS









Jimmy at A&P Arms and Gunsmithing in Virginia Beach did the honors. I am very pleased to have an old friend spruced up.

This thing is pure EVIL! I hit five consectutive 2" groups today with five rounds each. Thought I was doing pretty darn good, that is, until my buddy shot three 1" groups with it. Oh well, what can you do but buy more ammo and practice! :)
