Post? Link?

.22 or .177 RC?
I always buy .177.  Makes life easier to buy only one size pellets. RC

Surprise arrival just now!!

About three weeks ago I ordered an Ace 21' pistol case from Pyramid and it was back ordered until Nov. 31st. Then the date was moved to Dec. 14th.
The doorbell just rang and it's here.   :D

I immediately laid the 1377 in it and got out a tape measure. Great news. A 6.5" TKO will fit on it!
Happy day today.

Edit: I just noticed it was delivered by USPS....on a Sunday. Is that new for the holidays?

Outstanding news Tater  :-*

I have stuff floating around with USPS. One of the sorting facilities that my mail comes thru is shutting down so my stuff is getting sorted in Sandston (Richmond), VA They are considered one of the worst in the nation   :-X I think I will try to use UPS from now on if I can. At least tracking gets updated with them.


Excuse me! After 4 days sitting in the sort facility (scanned 4 times at the same place) it has moved  :-*

And we both know that what one pays for with the USPS doesn't necessarily equate to delivery time.  I usually blame my local PO for not paying attention. RC

when i ordered my tko it was here at my door 5 days later that was over 3 years ago though things might have changed since then
i was talking with Anthony Storey the other day its a 3 week wait to get one of his ldc's ,might be the same with neil clague too

iirc usps does deliver on sundays during the holidays but i thought it was and option not something they did out of holiday spirit

TKO is quick. You'll have it before Christmas in all likelihood.

It may make it before Xmas Tater, Mike at TKO has tried to keep the standard sizes in carbon fiber wrap in stock, he usually doesnt have to wait for orders to make e'm, they are popular items.

Nice. His site says the 6.5" is always in stock but it doesn't mention the 5" that I ordered. Finger are crossed.

Just ordered me some custom transfer ports from GMAC for my RJ High Rise breech. Some in 2.7mm for pistol use and some in 3.5 for rifle use.

Gordon is also machining the rear to accept standard sights too.

All extra length screws also on order.

I just need a baffled shroud now same as on my LD
