Yep! Bought it from JC Penny by mail order while we were in Germany about 1975 or 76. I assembled it at Ft Hood, darned near ruined the marriage when I heated the barrel over the kitchen stove to brown it. If memory is correct it did cost me a dinner out, as the house was pretty rank that evening.
I rust blued mine the old fashioned way........buried it for a while .
Mom was hotter than the stove eh......true love will survive , ya'll are proof. Happy 33 ya'll !
Stay safe ....
Ever see an old long tang TC Hawken in .54 caliber . Give me a shout if ya will.
