    I would not call it the holy grail myself, but sure wouldn't mind seeing it on the market. I have a hard time thinking it would top a 99 savage in 358,or really even compare, but that is just my opinion, and they AIN"T making any more of them...

    I don't remember buying much craftsman tools since the 70's. The closest store was 100 miles from me, so what good was a warranty. My knuckles never cared if a wrench had any warranty or not when anything let go, and since I stood a good chance of...
