    The BBT came with my V2-24, I was a little disapointed to find it has about zero% blueing remaing, in fact it almost looks like it's polished. Bore is bright and shiny, strong rifling, with only minor pitting. I guess it worked out o.k., its in about the same condition as some I looked at my local Herb Philipson's army and navy store, and I got the Lions crest, whcih all the ones I looked at were scrubbed off. I will post some pics soon.

    I'm truly beginning to wonder if they even blued any of them.

    My barrel matches the rest of the gun - kinda like a silver type finish.

    Have no idea if it is shootable yet though - haven't gotten around to taking the cosmoline out.

    Mine however doesn't have the crest so congrats on that - looking forward to the pictures.

    Mauserman - did you get the handpick, or just the regular order?

    Yeah, I paid $10 for the handpick w/ lions crest. My barrel matches too. Took it apart to de-grease, and theres a nice deep blue finish under the wood, so they just musta' seen lots of use.

    My VZ_24 from aim arrived today it also did not have any bluing left except for under the stock which looked brand new.The barrel cleaned up great and the stock has quite a few dings but for the price it is a great investment to go along with the others. Benny
