So, the day after my Outkast Sniper II arrived, I got another nice little (okay, it was kinda big) package in. What was inside?
 
 
:)
 
A nice comparison:
 
 
Anyone want to take a guess as to why this number is significant?
 
 
The guts:
 
 
Back block mojo ain't got a thing on this. It's a solid hunk of aluminum:
 
 
 
 
My thoughts on it? It's gonna be fun to use this thing! Not to crazy about the pump stroke, and I can fix that. Just requires me to do some drilling, so I'm hesitant. The bolt is really nice for what it is, and will be nicer when I polish it. I'd like to replace the old WGP hinge with a slider, as I LOVE the feel of a nice slider, and the barrel is an old J&J stainless barrel I had. The pump kit on it now is Hooptie, but I've got the original WGP kit as well.
 
As I said, it's gonna be a blast using her!

The serial number is your birthday--04/01/1990.

Have fun with it. Nice to see a classic floating around here.

Not my birthday, but maybe the markers!
 
The SN puts it at 1990. This sucker is OLD!

Hey, coming into the world in 1990 does not make you old.
