Thanks art

Thatís next on my list.
Do you have one that is labeled 308
I have another garand coming in 308 and thought it would be a nice touch
So I donít grab the wrong ammo and rifle versus my 3006 rifles.

This is one of the first 7.62mm NATOs. We have since dropped the mm.

If anyone has an image that needs professionally digitized to run on almost CNC machine using most any software I will happily knock some images out while recovering from this week's procedure. Have over $20,000 in specialized software for mix of almost any type machine output from simple two axis plotters, three axis routers and mills to four axis lasers and machining centers. Simple logos can usually take from low resolution jpeg to whatever vector format someone needs in a few minutes.
