Re: assembled my first Anderson LPK

I've got three stripped lowers. Bought em as blems. Around $40 each. Figured it would be prudent to build at least a couple of em up before the next panic. Bought a CDNN complete carbine kit w/stainless 1-8 barrel for $429. Shoots well.

Re: LEO’s that Purchased Police 8/81’s

Was privileged to see and handle briefly a model 81 with Los Angeles County Sheriff Dept engraved on the receiver and a detachable 15 rd magazine at a gunshow in Coure D Alene Idaho a month ago. Cool! Not for sale, although the owner had a standing offer for $6000 for it.

Re: stripper clips for 25 rem

I found that Austrailian NATO 7.62x51. (308) stripper clips work great with 35 Remington in my model 81.. Worth a try.. Pitchy showed us the way.. Had a short vid on It..
