As the thread title suggests, when my son first saw this rifle he said, "That's about the baddest-lookin rifle I've ever seen". I'll take that as a compliment.
I got this 20+ pounder in from Ohio Ordnance Works about a month ago. BTW the folks at OOW were great to work with and they do an excellent job, and quality like it should be. The fit and finish is great, shoots reliably, the shipping packaging was excellent. A+++ from me to them.
After I received it, I had a question about the mag not locking up like it should. I called them and a short time later the guy who actually test-fired all the rifles called me back. He had already researched my serial number on the rifle and had his info in front of him. After a quick discussion there was absolutely no problem with the rifle, he gave me a little hint and the mag locked right up perfectly, and no I wasn't putting it in upside down or backwards.
I like WWII guns a lot, and this, to me, is about the ultimate. It shoots as good as it looks.
