    I just received delivery of my Winchester M42. I sent it to Wrights Gunsmithing for repair. It was pretty messed up, almost unrepairable. I say almost because Stu Wright worked his magic on it and saved this gun from being a parts gun. The repair is perfect in every way! If you have a m42 or m12 send it their way. Great people to deal with. To Mr Wright and crew, thanks very much I couldn't be happier. Dan Smith. (Md)

    Sounds like Stu is the man. I must apologize, I thought you wrote MG42.

    Dan,

    What a beautiful Model 42. I am truly envious.

    I hope you(and your son)enjoy many years of shooting Rail in the marshes over on the Eastern shore.
