Great Photo! Your gunsmith sounds like a good guy, that is cool you know him. You know you are getting me very interested in guns! Too cool!
I don't know about the scope but teh one you want sounds killer! The on it looks great to my untrained eye.
I had a seriously great day today in the shop , I'm still itchy from grinding G10 most of the day but it was a very good one. I also have the Ti Bottle Openers in the works, I am just amped!
