The card in it has a typo... "The fought" isn't right.

AWESOME looking gun though. Just awesome.

Neither is "he had an outstanding military by any standard." And put a period after 1955.

10/10 for the pistol, 3/10 for the card. ;) :cool:

Looks good to me! :cool:

He sounds like a great guy. How did you come by this pistol, if I may ask?

Doesn't look like it was carried very long if that's really the original finish.
