The KL - 017
First off, saying thank you as many time as I want to for this gun would still not be enough.
This gun was presented to me at the EMR Castle XXII. It was the most unexpected thing. I got the "Carter we want you out back". Ok... they were cooking, figured they wanted to force feed me some sea food. (Which I don't eat).
Instead, I was handed this black bag. At this point I knew it was a gun, but still no idea what, and never to this extent.
I opened it up, and this KL emerged.
Pumpkins are courtesy my wife and daughter.
This gun has a lot of great features, first, and most noticable, is the back 3.5 oz back bottle in the stock.
I was told this was one of the more difficlut parts of the gun, and that Scarecrow did the rear bottle work.
BretG did the KL conversion:
While the rest of the gun was Palmerized:
I plan on getting the tank filled tomorrow at the field so I can give this gun a go.
Again, I can't say thank you enough. It is definately one of a kind.
As you can see, the gun has an RVA (Rear Velocity Adjuster), with a nylon set screw to keep it in place.
The bolt is a quick strip, for easy removal and cleaning.
Direct feed, which is my favorite.
Muzzle break, dummy 12 gram with a line going through the stock to the back bottle adapter.
Brushed nickel finish, and gold plated lever.
Yes, this is an amazing gun, and is what custom is all about. I'll have more on it after I can gas her up and fire some down the chrono range.

Carter, we are all glad you enjoy it. It is the least we all can do to acknowledge all you have done for us.
This gives me an opportunity to personally thank all those that were indispensible in putting this together. Special thanks obviously belong to BretG, Palmer's Pursuit Shop and Scarecrow for the awesome work on the gun itself. It would not exist as you see it without these guys and their wonderful effort.
Heartfelt thanks go to Schmitti, aka the "MoneyMan" and Al, aka "Tinkertot Al, Destroyer of Worlds" for helping with the finishing touchs to the gun.
Last but in no way least, the members who made this tribute to MCB possible;
If I left anyone out (or thanked someone who did not deserve it ) you have my deepest apologies and my extended thanks generally to all those who bought things from me and the people above as you most likely contributed a bit indirectly as did many others.
This is a great group of guys here and thanks finally to Carter for bringing us all together and giving us a cool place to hang our E-hats and store our E-beer.
