    Thanks Ronn.......... It is a nice gun. I needed to get it out anyway, and clean it up a bit. That silver finish tarnishes bad. I have a few of those Legendary Lawman, same story, receiver is black tarnished....... Need to clean those too.....When you guys get through looking at this one, I took photos of the two new Hi Grade Brownings I had converted to 50 B&M AK too.............

    I have a couple of things in 38-55, I need to drag out the dies and load data and play with those guns some. Very nice to shoot, no recoil, easy and fun..... As I recall I had a bunch of cast bullets for those things somewhere? I used a cast bullet on that lion as well..... ended up the perfect bullet for the mission........... Dogs had run him up this serious mountain, and he had climbed down on a small ledge, and shear drop off of about 500 feet. It was a brain shot which dropped him immediately or he would have taken a tumble over the side with anything else..............

    A few months ago I got a really good deal on a couple of the Hi Grade Browning M71s. Matching Serial #s, one was a carbine and other a rifle, I think 20 inches and 24 inches are the barrel lengths. I have no use for 348 Winchester, although I have kept one Carbine in 348 just to have one. And, honestly, I don't have any use for two more 50 B&M Alaskans, but I had them built anyway. Sent both guns to Brian at SSK to be converted. I am now the proud owner of 5 of these guns!!!!!!

    Here is the matching set, now built in a proper .500 caliber.....................
