Why Randy at CPC has Gray Hair (I assume)



Log in to see fewer ads
Me: "...Hi Randy, I need some barrel work, I had a 10/22 ported..."

Randy: "why"

Me: "I dunno, seemed like a good idea at the time? To tame the mighty muzzle blast of the .22LR?"

So he had to counter-bore the barrel back and do extra work. So if he's crabby, it's possibly my fault...

I've got one other one he did years ago, never noticed one bit of difference So it was a complete waste of time. However it is a great conversation starter!

They shoot well. Mag-na-Port did the work.
