    Any 510, 11,12 or 13 I see for under 200$ comes home with me. Been that way for 5 years they are great rifles. Even have a 514 basket case, tho I'm not such a big fan of them it was too much of a lost puppy to leave where it was.

    I just cut pewter strips the same size as my wrench. It doesn't deform as bad as flashing but is soft enough to not mar anything. When I flatten or crush one it just goes in the tin pot and I grab another.
