Instead of stepping on Hawk 45 post and hi-jacking it, here is more SLRs. There were 4 companies making them. Gorden Technologies, Blue Ridge, Ohio Ordinance and MSC. G-Tech and Blue Ridge being judged the best by some.

Here's 3 of mine, all G-Tech:



Besides slings, I have put slant breaks and RSA trigger groups on them. The center one is one of my first AK's thanks to JOHNO. Interesting story on the other 2. I bought them from a private estate. They are 2-digit serial numbered. One in the twenties, the other in the sixties. According to several sources the guns G-Tech sold to public started with serial number 300. The ones I have were supposedly special built for either employees or friends. The validity of this I cannot prove. I intend to collect samples of each manufacturer.
If you have a SLR-100, keep that puppy in the family! And enjoy it!

Thanks for the info JOHNO, maybe that explains the different serial # prefix and markings.
Glad you found another 100, try keeping it this time! :wink: When you get it, let me know how it is stamped. I am trying to document the differences in the 100's.
Thanks for the reply Templar. BTW, I still have the Arsenal bakelite underfolder I got from you. Beautiful weapon. Thanks again.

Nice triplets! Do you think the Blue Ridge are the best made? I have a Blue Ridge & Gordon Tech. I do like my Blue Ridge alittle better.

I could not give you an honest opinion as I only have G-Tech.
If you send me your Blue Ridge I will do an extensive comparison. :wink: JK!! :grin:

There's just something about that rustic-looking wood that can't be beat. :cool:
Man,thats the truth! The SLR100s definately have character in their original stocksets.

Ironback,where are the correct muzzle nuts,I know you had at least one!

I keep them with the other original parts, (FCGs, slings, top covers, etc.) marked to the rifle they came off of. Occasionally I will swap them back just for the look. You know how it is, you cannot keep your hands off of them.:grin:
Do you need any? I can check my parts bins for some.

OOW built them? Never knew that. Never saw a picture of one either.

I know I complemented you on the "other" site, IronBack. But I can't get over those stocks. Fantastic!

I ordered a Polish laminated stock set for my G-Tech and will post pics when the set arrives. It will be nowhere near the look you have, but I'll get a BFH and see if I can make it look more "worthy." :wink:
