Sounds like a very nice rifle. Could we see some pics?

Exactly what I just got. No canvas bag for the rods. Just rods and brushes etc stuck everywhere nice and snug. I'd like to keep them with the rifle, so now I have to try and figure out how to repack them without everything rattling and falling out.

No sir. Pretty dark finish for a Letterkenny, but super pleased with the rifle.

Not to be confused with a LEAD rebuild. Many early garands were lead dipped to prevent receivers from cracking such as this.
