    Thank you. They were my SASS guns for a while. I should shoot them more. Newer 3rds with a removable bushings. Dennis Holland carved, once piece ivory, Jim Martin action jobs.

    IMG_3196 (2).JPG Here is one I am working on today. Putting 2 piece giraffe bone grips on it at the moment. But was very pleased how the new case colors came out prior.

    3rd generation but with 1st gen "bullseye" ejector rod buttons. Was that part of the customization?

    The nickel 45 is a Colt Custom Shop gun. You can order anything. The bullseye ejector rod head makes them a bit easier to unload and tight in the wrong holster.

    Another gun here, posted "in progress" above, that I just finished up this morning. Same "bullseye" ejector rod head.

    Got tired of the high ammo prices, when you can find it, and preferring to keep my reloading stocks intact for a while, I have returned to air guns. I have a 45 year old Feinwerkbau 124D sporter that had a bad piston seal so sent it off before Thanksgiving for repair, inclueded new mainspring and a few other parts. Got it back a little over a week ago and it shoots great. Another plus is no one way 50 mile trip to the range. I ordered and received a Diana 54 Air King Pro in .22, wanting something capable of a longer range with a bit more power and it fulfills the bill there, but is a bear to cock. I also have an older FWB 300s match rifle, made for position shooting, and is a lot better than I am. If you can hold it, it will put pellet after pellet into the same hole at 10 meters, and a bit further. Also have a couple of air pistols on the way, a vintage S&W 78g CO2 , same form as my M41 match .22LR, and a HW75, a single stroke pneumatic target pistol. I have always been a rifleman, but with the pistols, I think I can really improve on that game.

    The airguns are certainly to be enjoyed. I have a mystery one that still does the job and will be called upon soon to keep the squirrels out of the bird feeders.

    My wife gets as much enjoyment watching the squirrels as the birds. We have one squirrel that has been here about four years, no tail, we nicknamed him(or her) Stubby!

    It was seized from a convicted felon [it and about 12 other guns] and then disposed of. No markings to be found, I suspect it is a Chinese copy of someone else's design. Decent sights and ridiculously accurate.

    Why wouldn't it be legal?

    Ah, I misunderstood, thought you meant you couldn't use the open top in CAS. I'll go back to sleep now, the nice lady says I need my meds!
