    Hey gang...Well - here's another first for me....and I know what's what here!

    It's a Quist made M16 (Q66) with a repro liner. Also came with the repro chinstrap but I took it off....Priced accordingly given the leather but I'm really happy with the paint job on this one. I think it looks really cool and it's not the regular swirl pattern but rather a chunky "block" pattern that looks really neat. Soldier did a good job on this one.

    I really like it and I'm happy to have it added to the collection. I think it looks even better in person!

    Cheers!

    Rob

    PS....wish I could have taken better pics - but it's been cloudy and rainy for three days with no end in sight.....

    Thanks guys! Yes, the paint is the real deal (unfortunately the liner isn't but I paid accordingly for it). Glad you guys like it....not an easy "pattern" to find!
    Cheers!

    Hi Rob. Nice and unusual pattern. I once had a beautiful oak leaf variation that I foolishly parted with long ago. The only thing I don't like about your example...and I don't mean this to sound mean or critical...but I personally would rather have it liner-less than with a repro.
