Hehe, I found one y’all didn’t see! Snuck this pristine little thing in. Actually, daddy found this and an almost as good shortline, Rogers bone 69 at a gun show and bought them on my behalf. Didn’t even warn me. Just told me how much. Lol.

Thanks guys. Other than the oh so common Delrin center pin crack at the bottom she’s and minty as a box of thin mints.
