Rigmarol . . better watch out . . . I'm in AZ for the winters and in some parts, they still hang horse thieves and those who steal a guy's hog leg!
Congrats on your find! I think you did real well on it and we look forward to seeing it when you get it all polished up! You certainly can't go wrong at that price.
My wife and I were up in Prescott & Prescott Valley over the weekend and I saw on the news that there was a big gun show - just didn't have time to fit it in as we had other things to do. From what I saw on the news, there were some "antis" having a snit but hope that didn't affect the show any.
Keep us posted on your progress on the Army . . . looks like a great project! Thanks for sharing!
