Seriously though, cool rifle.
I would like to know more about the paint job. I think something in that style would be cool for the wife's AR.
You'll have to PM Balota. He lives in Oklahoma and had it done somewhere out there.

Thanks, everybody, for all the "Congratulations".

Waiting for the post or waiting for the phone call asking if I can come up and have you fix it for me?

I guess you don't remember how stubborn I was when I had that Mark II apart. I just had to get it back together myself. Even if it took a month to do it.

Really cool! And just think, that action will get even more smooth over time. Have a blast with that new rifle.

If that action gets any smoother, it will be cocking itself.

Balota took one. He is going to send it to me and I will decide whether it gets posted. My rule is........no pictures of me on the forum. Not even any of my on FB. Nope, not going to happen. Though I think Balota took a picture of me firing the Henry but all you'll see is the back of my head. You have to meet me to see what I look like.
