This doesn't break any new ground either, but its just such a nice little gun, I
There's still a plan kicking around to make a new trigger. Mentioned before that the trigger really needs another 1/2" or so of set-back. Guess that'll also entail a new trigger guard.
Still on a sling kick, the slender 22mm (7/8") sling mounts from the HW35E finally found the right home. They look exactly right on the old girl.
Even the front barrel band was a good fit.
Finding the right 7/8" sling was the hardest part. This isn't exactly the place for a two point black nylon Magpul. A trip to Dick's Gun Room did the trick. They had a nice selection of leather slings taken off trade-in rifles.
Digging through the options yielded an old 7/8" George Lawrence Co. #5 military sling. A few minutes with some Sno-Seal leather conditioner, pure beeswax, and a heat gun on low had it looking like a million bucks.
Thanks for checking in.
