My National Postal meter carbine s/n 410XXXX is about to receive a re-parkerized Underwood barrel and NPM front sight. I found an NPM USGI rear flip sight for it for $145.00. All of the internals are NPM. Next I am going to apply a hand rubbed oil finish. When done will post pictures.

Not a very active forum. We've all been together talking about this stuff for years. Some of us go back to the early '90's with the Prodigy SSBB site. So until some sort of "news" comes up, we don't have much to say; because we've probably already talked about it.

What I will say about this forum is. The active memebers are absolute gentlemen. They are EASILY the most knowledgable group of people you're likely to find on an internet forum. Sure you can find some better specific knowledge on some specialty forum, but for general knowledge, I'll put GunHub members against anyone.

There is almost NO BS here on this forum because everyone here values the truth, and disdains drama. Of everyone here I'm easily the biggest a-hole, so that means I can get along here quite well.

Absolute best bunch of guys on the internet.

Thanks Kevin that means a lot.

I suspect there is a story few know. I stumbled onto the SSBB on Prodigy and it was my first online experience. I was at what became known as "spring break" in Florida when S&W introduced the Sigma.

There were a bunch of writers there and I knew Dean from his column in "Gun Week."

As writers sometimes do there was a crowd in the bar and I was talking to Chris Killoy who was a VP at S&W and now a bigger wheel at Ruger. He also knew about the SSBB and we explained it to Dean.

Next thing you know he was hooked up with Prodigy and the SSBB took off. Dean originated the Gunstock gatherings and Tim, Walt and I made a pilgrimage to Long Island's Pine Barrens for what was... I think... the second Gunstock.


As boards do folks came and went but Dean's "no BS, no whining" policy survives.

PS: the picture that is my avatar was shot at that Gunstock.

That's too cool. Being all the way on the left coast, I never got to go to Gunstock...just watched all you guys having fun without me. I think it was Mark Freburg who told me about the Prodigy SSBB (so you all can blame him).

I left when Prodigy did the big money grab. Took me over a decade to find this place and been here ever since.

Agreed. But this guy has a tendency to advertise under different names, i.e. "abc leigh," and other variations of the "leigh" name.

AmBack was an interesting sojourn. Between Charlie Petty and Dean I learned a lot, including some of the things I thought I knew were wrong.

Riverbank has a well deserved reputation for selling repro parts as originals. You show always be suspicious of any parts supplier who seems to have endless supplies of rare parts. They also have a very high restocking fee if you do return something that isn't right. I advise against doing business with this outfit. And I did receive a faked part from them. It was supposed to be an early IP mag catch. It turned out to be a late style catch that the face of the catch had been ground off to hide the M marking on the face and was reblued! Then it was stamped IP. Well there are some pretty distinct differences in the early and late mag catches and IP never made a type 3 catch which is what this one was. That is my personal experience, and I've heard many similar tales from others.
