My M1A and My Colt

These are two of the guns I used to own when I was shooting more. Unfortunately, I sold both of them.

Attachment 7842

My M1A. Custom Grade A Fancy Fiddleback Walnut with a hand-rubbed finish by Reinhart Fajen of Warsaw, MO. The original stock from Springfield Armory is also shown. The rifle was made to my specifications while I watched at the factory in Geneseo, IL. The rifle had a National Match Barrel, Trigger Assembly and Gas Check. I picked out the original stock, myself. The scope is a 2.5 - 10 Leupold. VERY accurate rifle at 200 yds.

Attachment 7844

My .45 Cal. Colt Gold Cup. The trigger had been worked by a friend and me, and the slide had been tightened. This gun could shoot 5/8" groups at 50' from a Ransom Rest. It is the most precise handgun I have ever owned.

I own and shoot the same firearms that Richard had owned and am extremely fond of both, especially for their accuracy. The big difference in mine are that both are basically stock, especially my NM M1A and certainly not as pretty.
