    It's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chase. Hunting down just the right part to complete a project is what some folks find to be the best part of their build.

    Great build, enjoy.

    My friend who rebuilt countless told me originally few were matching as they were assembled from interchangeable parts. IIRC he said he thinks he saw 3 original builds with all matching parts.

    I build Bredas and Berettas all the time. I wanted the Winchester for the history. If I want to shoot, I use my H&R or my International Harvester.

    Well done!!

    I'm normally ultra patient, and will research just about anything into oblivion before I even begin a project so that I know it inside and out.

    However I find sourcing original parts for things that haven't been manufactured in a while INFURIATING.

    If you can do it though, people like you prove you can wind up with some really pretty things!
