Yes! Can't wait to take it to the range. I guess I'll have to load some bullets, only came with four.

1. I sure fell for this click bait.....

2. Does a plastic clip ping, or what kind of sound are we looking at? Perhaps this was a secret U.S. government project to respond to the (False) claims the Germans/Japanese would lie in wait until they heard the M1 ping, then assume the unsuspecting American was empty, then go in for the kill????

Should that have a leather or canvas sling?
