Back in 1992 I bought this from a guy who built it to pass his gun smithing class for $150.I worked up a load and shot it for a summer and put it up. The safety is awful and with a scope imposable to turn it to the on spot. Now i see tamney is making a set trigger with a side safety for $95. I don't need this gun ,but it would be fun to bring it to a finished state and shoot it again. I would shoot i shell at a time on the bench to be safe before.

Looks good. Looks you could use some knurling on the OD of the safety.
