    Nope, I found the last Gene Barnett set up and a set of the new shootable springs. Rat Worx was 1st built on my two consecutive receivers 9988 & 9989 so I was on the ground floor with Mr. Abrahams when he was thinking of building those. I would have bought the Rat Worx set up but this was part of a trade so I couldn't pass it up. This is something I wanted but just hadn't don't it. This one just kind of fell in my lap :) By the comments I am wondering if you were the 1st to catch what this is? Rick B

    Doc,

    Beautiful. "And very shootable", he says. I like your toys!

    Are those flush nut rear sights on your gas trap? I'm not as familiar with all the internals as some (see Orlando), but it looks like there is some pretty early stuff in there. Just how correct is it?

    I seem to recall they don't make them like this anymore.

    Beautiful Rick!!
    I've fondled a couple gas trap rifles, but have never been around one when fired. Is there a difference in operation, sound or feel with the gas trap rifles?
    Someday I'll have one.. :rolleyes:

    Sweet looking couple.
     
  14. Man, that is nice. Missed out on one couple years ago. Heard a day late a coworker wanted to sell a military war rifle. 2 days went buy and he had already sold it. Either 3000 or 30000 serial number. He got $600. I asked him to call the guy and tell em I'd give him $1200. Dang! No Deal. Have no idea of what it had in it as far as drawing numbers go.

    Great piece of American history. I went through basic training with the Garand and was issued a Carbine overseas. Wish I had kept my Win. Garand, but to late now.
