I also like the looks of the earlier frame. Tom Archer in his reply mentioned the ejector issue with the rotary bolt keeper slotted models. Since I intend to go with a monoblock anyway I guess I can build in whatever it takes to make some ejectors work as well I guess. Time to screw up my courage, advise the wife, and buy the frame. She is all stripped down, firing pin bushings and all except for the 3 position safety mech. I hope she is not a 10 gauge, probably she is a 12, but if God smiles on me maybe she will be a sixteen. More work of course, and tougher to find parts, but sleeker and worth every headache. Still learnin'
