    Very nice
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Nice work!

    How long from order to delivery?
    Did the Marine have to sign up for another 4 years to pay for it?

    Man, that looks mean. Put that in the hands of a surly Marine and you are asking for victory.

    Great work and I have a feeling it will serve the Marine well.

    Time wise it takes about 60 days from deposit to test firing and then it was about another 3 weeks to get it back from being finished from Ionbond, So a little under 90 days But we are trying to always keep them on hand as best we can of this model so as it stands now we have one more in stock now and several others in the making.

    They all are exact same as the pictures you see here



    Thanks

    I don't know if he had to sign up for 4 more but I think his wife may have him camping on the couch for awhile
