LadyFed,
As much as I appreciate your husband and what he's done for my collection...as much as I'm enjoying this thread...and even though my wife's two best quilting buddies are FBI agents here in Casper, I have to point out that the "key" article in the June 1990 issue of AR, isn't about the FBI's 1076!
The focal point has to be that often overlooked article about the "Pre-64 Model 70 serial #1!" Yes, the 1st "Rifleman's Rifle" showed up at a hardware store in Durango, Co.! (Kinda like Chuck's Nickel 29-1 that sat on top of a TV in Arizona - being used to kill rats!") I love those stories!!!!
Let's hear more abut the "Red Grips"
