If you like quality theres nothing left to speak of. My wife and I was in the area Thursday Dec 1 and stopped by. Probaby 60-75 rifles total left. With most being racks of poor quality. I looked at every rifle in the store and bought 2 WRA FG, 1 WRA RG and a WW2 SA with original barrel. My wife is a buyer. I brought my barrel gauge and all have decent barrels. The wood on three was ok and one WRA had a fairly nice 1955 IHC stock with a good DAS and no rebuild stamps or rack numbers and a grooved HG clip so score on that one. Theres not another rifle in the place I would want.

Yes 2 per person per day. I confirmed that at next weeks south store opening you can buy one at south store and then go buy one at TMP the same day. You cannot buy 2 at south store.

Good score on the IHC stock. I've gotten FG's and SG's before simply because of their collectable stocks. It seems like a rational decision to me. Any WRA barrels? How was condition of the FG metal? The ones I saw at the North Store last month mostly had really nice original or old reparked metal with little or no pitting. What was the date on the WW2 SA barrel?

Same as of today, managed to get a SG 1943 SA but yeah, most of the RG were rough.
