Re: Is my Remington 788 a carbine? I want another.
I likely will fix the sling post at some point.
The real reason I don't want to tamper with it is because its a bit of an heirloom. My grandfather bought it new, handed it down to my father, whom handed it down to me. I'm torn if fixing it up takes somethin away from it. I'd like to give it to my son in about 15 years so I don't know. The many scratches in the stock have lots of stories behind them, many of which I only could wish I know.
I guess I'm afraid to continue using it. It holds a lot of sentimental value.
I should keep it usable though...
