    Default Finished my "boat gun"

    I felt like I needed a little protection from 40 pound Muskies and monster Northern Pike. When I'm not fishing, it gets to ride arround in the trunk. Started with a '77 parked kit from Tapco, G2 package, Tapco piston. Global Trades 1mm receiver with parkerized option. K-VAR NATO length OD stock set, and I could not resist the OD 5 round mag, also from K-VAR. [Need a 5 rounder for legality Michigan] I liked the parkerize match so well I have done nothing with the original kit but clean it. Has test fired well, was even close to zero at 50 mtrs. Included "G" mark for those having that discussion, and the yellow paint mark came with the gun. Thanks to all at Gunco for the great board and information. Would like to meet you all at a build party sometime, and when the Weaponeer benders get delivered I'll have all the tools.

    Answered in order:; 45th paralell, not yet, but I will if I need to, Kind of like the Maine shoot, I have a variety on hand. I'm getting excited for my next assembly, a Bulgy '74. It was one from Dan's, a virgin fixed stock kit, and I have another Global 100% in 5.45. Having trouble deciding on a finish for the metal.
    It was a lot of fun assembling this one, looking forward to bending some flats, finishing some Coldsteels for a couple of Yugos. I'll Post when I git 'em done!

    45th which side? I have land at the base of Crystal mountain on the west side and some by Rainy lake NE of Atlanta. I need a boat gun, I could use yours. Time for a Northern build party or shoot, if I can get a day off work.
