    Better late than never! This build brings form and function together in a great Lightweight carry gun, wearing Polished bluing, Matte hardchrome, and checkered Ebony. I really wish this one got to stay here! This gun was a full gut and rebuild, 80 series parts in-tact, spare extractor and FPS were fit as well. Enjoy

    I have never been a fan of front cocking serrations, but they are starting to grow on me. I really like the way these turned out with the ball cuts-the way the serrations extend past the dust cover really add to the style of this modification. This is a very sweet build &I can understand why you are not wanting to send it out!
