    I only met Ken once, in 1994. What a pleasure to watch a true craftsman at work. I am sorry to hear of his passing.

    I too am sorry for your loss and offer you and your family my most sincere condolences.

    I have an SX-1 30" barrel that your dad "Eysterized" for sporting clays for me, and its a prized possession of mine that I wouldn't give up for anything.
