it appears iv'e survived my heart surgery, 5 days out, so now i'm back to finishing my pistol projs. talked to alex at colt cs today and i'm on track for a feb. delivery of my 82 series 70. next on order will be a gi champ to sacs for kinda the works for me. (even a beavertail!), some straight eights. looking forward to this one. then mr baer will sell me a stinger with naked slide, vertical cocking serrations, no ambi, and i'll be quite for awhile. happy belated new year. wasn't exactly lucid at the time.
