    Default dou.45 NLB with odd canvas sling

    mdarnell19 (with Bruce's help) bought this at the SOS, but made the mistake of mentioning that he was thinking of selling it to me to fund some silly scope with a rifle attached to it. I immediately stole it from him and refused to give it back.

    Its a really nice dou.45 from the no letter block. Pretty standard rifle with a few phosphate parts. Canvas sling looks very similar to the one mrfarb has, but it is stitched together on the ends. My dilemma now is whether to try for the other letter blocks (I have an a block already), but I think that may be a fool's errand.

    You should totally do a full letter block series. Key letter blocks to find are "c", "d", and "e", the others are easy to find (no letter, "a" and "b". Forget finding a matching "f" block, I think all are RC's. My "e" block is the only one I've ever seen matching and original, but who knows, if I have one there must be others.

    That's a pretty spectacular example Ryan.

    Magnificent! Dou45 is my Achilles heel. Dammit. Go for the series!
