  2. me too, my heart kinda skipped a beat when i initially saw the price, and first glance how good it looked
  3. Figured I might as well post a pic of mine here to add to the database
  4. thanks for the info brother, it really helped point me in the right direction

  6. i feel people might be convinced unfortunately at the sight of a hawley liner in it. being paired with a high dollar liner may sway people to suspend their disbelief
  7. haven't seen these markings in here, so i'd figure i'd share. if anyone has any info on them, it would be much appreciated. having a hard time tracking them down

  13. I won't be surprised if the winner is a non payer.
  14. I'm thinking a navy lieutenant. If it is navy, CF is the combat firecontrol division (weapon systems). It's what I work for. Why it would be yellow is beyond me though, maybe specific to the high explosive ordnance
  15. The original tied net with wire is just tops for me
