    I was wondering if the knowledgeable guys on here can fill me in on the history of the receiver? I'm familiar with the early logo receiver, but have seen some mention to it possibly needing an update to new parts. Aside from an annual, are there any pitfalls to owning one of these if found in nice shape, or if a deal can be had, sending it to Ottsville for a refinish? Moving into the standard engraved receivers that came along in the early 90's(?), my understanding is these are pretty much workhorses that with annuals can go a real long time.

    Any side track stories other than them blowing up would be great too.
