    Rich I think some underestimate the rural drag scene in Michigan back in the 60s and 70s. Heck they were made here and we proudly beat the snot out of them.

    my point was if you go with a mid length free float you don't have to buy a new gas block. Just grind yours down flush a dab of paint and the free float rail covers it anyway. I actually like the look of guns set up like that then with a gas block...

    I have both the 25/20 and the 25 TCU or 25/45 Sharps and love them both. My 25/20 is a T/C Contender and the TCU barrel is an MGM for my Encore. My Contender barrel has a deep throat and doesn’t do well with cast but the MGM barrel will shoot either...
