That is a fine looking shooting iron MRC.

I do kinda like the stock/brace.  It definitely dates it, LOL.

Late 70's was when I was just discovering shooting.  Dad had a subscription to G&A and I wore them pages out.  Always liked getting some cheap old gun magazines at the gun shows he took me to.  They were filled with stories like the one you linked to.

Thanks for that link, good read.

The brace is really well made.  I do not know what kind of stainless they used but it is extreme rigid and all the holes keep the weight down.  It might have been heat treated, I know the guy that made it, I'll have to talk to him.  The dovetail into the grip is about perfect, rigid with no wobble.

The one trouble with it is it is too long for me.   :(

That article has some great old pictures of some famous handgunners and writers.

What a beautiful gun? Enjoy.
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!
