I thought it would look good hanging over the mantle.

Tony,
Yup, it is awesome. A few years back I carried it through the Big Reno Gun Show. Dealers couldn't tell it was a non-firing gun, even when they held it. In reality, it's easy to tell it's a non-firing gun, since the bolt can't be moved.
:biggrin:

A good friend of mine was an incredible designer and machinist. He was hired to make dummy receivers for the kits that were available, years back. The project turned out to be too costly for the client and they never went into full scale production. A couple went to motion picture armorers, in L.A., and this one was left when my friend died a few years ago.

That is one fine looking rifle.
