I received my lightweight BCG (nickel boron finish) from Brownells today. It appears to have a nicer finish than the other one that I got from APF (at least it appears to be a little smoother - they are slightly different colors).

Then my friend stopped by and I took delivery of my Parker Hale .308. I believe that this is the Safari Deluxe model, so it should be more desirable. It does have some scars on the stock, but it seems to be a very nice rifle overall. The scope is nothing to write home about, but I am thinking about getting a Sightmark Citadel 5-30x56 scope for it. I may also look at other scopes to find one that isn't battery powered, but with similar power.

@1971Chevelle I got one of those Brownell's lightweight BCG's too. Fit and finish seems to be good, just need to put some rounds through it. Are you running it with an adjustable gas block?

I don't have my gas block yet. I am still waiting on my jig, so that I can finish my 80% lower. Then I will get the rest of the parts I need to finish the rifle up.

I ordered a Magnum Research 1911 knife last week (no grip). I then ordered a compact 1911 grip for it, along with a full size grip for the full size 1911 Magnum Research knife I have coming. These are pretty stout knives and I like the way this grip looks on it:

Boy, am I impressed! This is such a sweet firearm I can’t believe I procrastinated over 6 months to buy one. Smooth, feels great at 38 ounces. It’s like holding a 45 caliper. I rate this right with my Beretta 22 caliper. Very highly recommended.

Picked up a few more today. Found an unusual 38 Super NIB. Citadel manufactured between 2010-2014. RIA actually made these for Citadel. Has all the right stuff on it. I’m surprised RIA doesn’t manufacture more upscale 38 Supers.

The last two is a SW MP 2.0C in 40 caliper. This is for a Mothers Day surprise to my GF.
