    I kinda kick myself, the last 2 gunshows I went to, I found a T99 with the mum intact and a T38 with dust cover and cleaning, these always seem to be missing, and I declined both. Hindsight keeps telling me I made a mistake. Ah,well, live and learn.

    It's nice to know that there is always a way to make something to shoot out of the older rifles, nothing is really "obsolete" as long as there is the know how
