Nice wood 8) Now I know why you were asking about wax, looks like someone took the original gloss finish down a bit. Have you shot the gun yet ?

Thanks for the compliments guys. Its a very low serial # gun , more than likely made the first day of production , before lunch. The wood is a little more shiny than these pics show. I have not shot the gun yet. When I first received it , it was completely disassembled , scrubbed clean , re oiled and reassembled. I replaced the buffer , the follower and the o ring. I'm just waiting for a nice day and some time away from the job to shoot it.

Nice early skeet gun. Make sure you clean the gas system every time you shoot the gun. It does not take an early gun long for the magazine tube to start rusting after the blueing is warn off. I like them a lot I have 15 of them.

Good advice clayinstructor. I always completely clean every gun after shooting , especially the gas guns. I read about people upgrading to stainless mag tubes also. I wonder if anyone has experience with the Sure Cycle System from Midwest Gun Works ? This gun won't be shot much , but it definitely won't be in the back of the safe either. Everything inside the gun looked great , even the buffer , but I replaced it anyway.

I absolutely love it! What is the diameter of the flange? Overall length? Construction material? Maximum DP? In what application will it be used?

The Super X Model-1 is pretty cool too!

That was a hastalloy tube bundle from a heat exchanger. The flange was around 51" if I remember correctly. The tubes were about 20 feet long . Hastalloy has a high nickel and chrome content and is very corrosive resistant. My guess is its going into something rather nasty. All in a days work..... I wasn't sure if it came thru with the rest of the pics....

Way cool!

Brings back a lot of memories... As I was on the Op's / Maintenance side, most of those memories were not good ones... :lol:

Thanks for sharing...

1 eye,

Forget the Sure Cycle. It should be named no cycle.
The only action spring to use is the factory original or aftermarket springs made to the same specs.
DO NOT use HD aftermarket action springs as they cause malfunctions and major failures when they slam the bolt to battery with too much kinetic energy.

Super Exx... I'm a machinist by trade. We work on everything from pumps , turbines , compressors , gear boxes , any kind of valves , and pretty much anything that rotates. And we do outage support for nukes also. I've worked on stuff that'll fit in the palm of your hand and I've worked on stuff as big as a house. I've even touched a reactor vessel in a nuclear plant. Offline , of course. I enjoy it as its something different every day. You'd be surprised how that new extra finger comes in handy....lol....

Searun ,
I was just curious about the surecycle kit . I was wondering if anyone had any experience with them. I have seen other springs such as Wolff. I have a Benelli and a Win M50 and at one time considered buying one for them. But I have other guns for heavier loads. Most of the Wolff spring are stiffer for heavier stuff.

1 eye,

As I said, DO NOT use HD action springs.

Beauty I love the matt finish on top of the receiver. I have one just like it. Amazing how fine the walnut is on the SX target guns.
