Thanks

There were two and one was CCF which was Capital city Firearms owner larry and he imported a lot of items back then. One was Keith Buckner in Birmingham close to me and I knew him and he did several swaps as Larry had carbon fiber receiver blocks made and sold some of those. Keith developed cancer and even though he was young I don,t know if he survived. I bought the 550 and 551 first models around 1988 and got one extra new barrel from Larry at CCF also I think he is still around.
