    Yes, Bill sleeved actions. I once watched him work on one in his shop, but probably not this one. Another thing; Bill was one of the best in his business when it came to adhesives. Through his...

    I have two of them. One is a prototype I probably should not have (it is a long story) and the other a early first year issue. Neither have given me so much as a hint of a problem. bob[

    $3k for a new 52E? They should consider locking you up for stealing it unless the seller was happy too. Good Lord man, they don't make em like that any more. I'm drooling just thinking about it. ...

    The Hall action is smooth as silk and a joy to shoot. Ignition on the other hand leaves much to be desired.

    The 2500x just works. No issues. None. bob
