    Nice. Mine has newer plastic stock, older ones have the aluminum- I like yours better!

    I have a 1967 SP1, but I didn't buy that new, so it doesn't count.

          This is probably my favorite old receipt.

                I think there was a military surplus store there.

                  Yes, they dealt in lots of precision stuff.

                    I got one too. But know someone who has one of these. Think it's any good?

                        Precision Sportsman, I think the owner was Neil. Bought an M1a from him. I don't think he was around for very long.

                          I started the trend! In a gun world where the Mini-14 reigned supreme, and only a few had 20" AR15's, the 16" AR was somewhat rare.....

                          Bought brand new on 10/01/1988

                          30+ years later, I still have it:

                          US Gun and Knife Co.!...just down from Karl Ehmer's, by the 7th Pct. Yup, bought my Colt CAR there for around 525, bought another one a little later from Marty for around the same price.

                          Bought my Mini 14 from "The Gun Shop" on Conklin, right by Rt 110. Had to order it, cost me $255 I think

                            didn't he later have a smaller store? He dealt in a lot of competiton gear. Actually he installed the 1/2 MOA sights and smaller aperature and post on my HBAR back in the mid 90's. I also almost bought an anschutz from him but realized I didn't really like smallbore as much as I liked service rifle.

                            he was a good guy.

                              I bought that CAR from US Gun & Knife then brought it to Marty to have the barrel chopped and the long flash suppressor welded on - to make it look like an early military version.

                              Also, I bought an Aimpoint 2000 from "The Gun Shop" on Conklin in 1986 - to put on my Ruger 10/22.

                              M4 in '88 and red dot sights in '86. Took the military decades to catch up! Lol

                                A "dated" receipt is a surefire way to get caught sneaking "this ole thing" into the house.

                                But, I do have the original receipt for my 1959 Colt Woodsman Match Target, and my 1969 Colt Cobra. I also have the original box of ammo ,,, minus 6 rounds.
