I looked it over trying to figure out why it was on sale when other huglu weren't. It fits together nice and snug like it should, the wood is incredible, nice rich woodgrain.
The only issue i have and its minor, the one pictured didnt have engraved sides, this one does. I had planned to get the bunny buster image engraved on the sides.
Most of the ones i looked at came in its own storage case, this one did not.
It shoots where i point it and it goes bang when i pull the trigger. Im a happy camper.

Don't think the case was included in that version that came in a box

Ive seen a few regular huglu models without a case but all the silver hawk models ive seen had cases

No big deal either way itll probably stand with the rest in the off season

Well the Mec arrived today with a few extras thrown in. More hulls and wads, his recipes, digital scale, and about 5lb #6 shot.
One step closer to rolling my own.!!

On a side note i will not be able to get it engraved as it showed up already engraved. Im still not happy about it but ill live with it. I dont know how to work around the mess in the middle.

Youre welcome re: the MEC.

I don't post much here but knew you were looking so as soon as I saw it I texted Yoda and let him know to get a hold of you. But be warned Yoda is a bad influence he influences me in bad ways to buy reloading gear.

Ive known Yoda for a few years, he has been a wealth of knowledge and sometimes the brunt of a joke.
