I am pretty sure it is a handmade job. Looks like they made it oversize so it would not crack

Heck I can remember the time when I was young I didnít think Iíd reach 35 (I had a bit of a wild/rebellious streak) , so I didnít really worry about taking care of myself . Now itís beginning to show LOLís ! My goal in life now is to live long enough to see our grandson graduate from college , wife and Iíll be 58 in 32 days so I figure we need to see 78 to accomplish the goal

Wasn't it Satchel Paige who said "If I had known I was going to live this long, I'da taken better care of myself"?

Our old neighbor said that and then he said, either that or he would have opened the throttle wide-@$$ open and made sure he didn't make it as long as he did.

I held her open several times but always came out unscathed . And at that time I didnít care , now that my outlooks changed 180 degrees every morning brings a new ache , pain or limp

Just got a text from my barrel guru ! As I stated earlier he had already fixed the rib on the four frame gun and now he’s already redone the DH barrels . So it appears I’ll have them in hand Thursday or Friday
