    I did some trading with a local guy for what was said to be one of the unmarked rifle dynamics rifles.After checking it out in person and seeing what was done to it compared to what RD offers I agreed he was telling the truth.I posted up in one of the online groups I frequent and jim fuller himself was kind enough to contact me and answer some questions I had about it not having any RD markings.He said there was a 2yr period he wasn't marking guns and would be glad to id a gun by serial for a 2nd hand buyer.I gotta say for a guy like that to take time out of his day to answer some questions for me its impressive imo.They were also kind enough to send me the original invoice for the rifle and let me know they did the original conversion on it and the RD upgrades.I dont plan on getting rid of it but for whatever reason in the future itll be alot easier to verify when you have paperwork on something like this ahah

    its obviously got an alg akt trigger and magpul hand guard now

    No engraved Archangel eh?

    Tis a thing of beauty sir. Well played trade! (did you give up your left nut or your right one? :) )

    Now... shoot it. A lot! Do give a range report when you can.

    I have three of his masterpieces. All of them have the warrior angel on them. Jim does the etching (it's not an engraving) himself.

    Jim & crew have done three for me over the last 5 years or so. I always have him place his "Warrior Angel" on my orders.
