I finally got notified that my new DSA FN FAL receiver has been shipped so I should complete the build next week, if the creek don't rise. Also have a 1928M1A 80% reciever (Philidelphia Ordanance) for a non-firing replica that I am building on a kit I got from Sportsmans Guide. These kits are cherry, having sat in an armory in Russia since 1944 and never fired. It's a complete shame they were cut in half. Melbo called last night to let me know that the Novak sights are complete on two of my custom 1911s. Both 1911s have Barstow Stainless match barrels and bushings, Chip McCormick hammers, sears, triggers, extended mag releases, match barrel pins, Pachmyer wrap-arounds and mainspring housings, ambidexterious safeties, and extended beavertail grip safeties. Now they got Novak style tritium sights Next week should be a fun week for Seacowboys. Relatives go home after Christmas and I get to build guns and shoot them. YES!
