    Great - finished and coming back your way. Looks good, you will have fun with it.

    Well, the pics look real good. I hope I get a chance to see it in July.

    Thanks all! I got the package safely today and everything looks great. You can expect a range report and detailed pics this weekend

    It'll be a little bit till I get a chance to build a linking tool like we discussed earlier. In lieu of that I went over a buddie's house for a quick lathe project this morning.

    That hand linker works REALLY well for doing a belt one link at a time. The weight of the tool really let's you push the link into position with authority. I had no problem getting the links seated evenly. Didn't even need to wear gloves. My baby hands are still smooth as ever.

    Sunday (tomorrow) is the big day!

    The gun worked great, what a boat load of fun! Once I got the windage adjusted, hitting a man sized target @ 100 yards is easy peasy! Worth every penny

    That is a buddy in the pic. You don't want to see my fat ass.

    Is it me, or is taking apart, cleaning, head spacing, and reassembling, a 1919 just about as sweet as shooting it?
