    If you get one of these buy it from Royal Tiger. you get the kit, furniture and 2- 30rd mags for $350

    I love this rifle but there were some cracks in the furniture that showed up after I scrubbed it down still I am very happy with it

    bubbamauser. Very nice job on that.. For history sake, the pronged flash suppressor while historically accurate, was eliminated for the flush round flash suppressor we see today..
    It worked, I guess, but was getting caught on everything it came in contact with.. Like walking with a pitchfork in front of you..
    Looks great, nice job..

    Thanks. I like the way you think.

    4th, thanks. This one came with the newer birdcage but I like the way these look and it was accurate to the early ones. I can see it catching all the brush within 20 feet but I'd probably go with something else if that would be a problem.

    I am thinking about putting the lower on a dry buffing wheel to try and match to the upper any thoughts on that or better ideas?

    I would leave it be, but it is up to you.. We only put 19 rounds in the original 20 round mags.. Old timers said if we put 20, they jammed.. I was not going to question them..
    Really liked the idea of the V shaped front on them.. Some guys had hands like Andre the Giant, some guys small hands.. Just moving your hand a bit forward or back, gave a comfortable grip..
    Posted before, but rumor had it Colt went to Mattel Corp. for the front grip.. They were set up in the toy plastic industry.. True, false, hell not sure.. But the name kind of stuck.. "Matty Mattel's."
