These beauties were built by Turnbull for Remington and are really nice out of the box. I sent this one to Mr. Garthwaite for a full house effort. The build will feature a retro theme very similar to the Colt WWI repro that Mr. Yost built for me. Hope to see her back around February/March.

I couldn't bring myself to mess with the one I had and ended up selling it. I'll be looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.

Love it! I'm a fan of Garthwaite's work. I think I might have gone with a rat tail grip safety or something similar for the retro look. Kind of makes me wish I had hung on to mine and had the guts to have it cut on. Great looking piece, when do we get a range report.
