-I mentioned in another thread how, when I started, I had a worn-out mill-drill that gave me crappy surface finishes, I had maybe a grand total of a dozen endmills (several of which I had to "resharpen" once or twice with a Dremel) maybe twice that many drill bits (most dull, I didn't know how to sharpen them back then) and my "milling vise" was a $35 drill-press vise. IE, cheap, weak, and not even remotely square.

I don't think I ever got a quick-change toolpost for that lathe, either. I had a boxful of shims to adjust the tool height. That was a pain in the adz.

BUT... I made some pretty dang nice guns back in those days, regardless.

Thank you, I just received a picture of it last night and can't wait to get it!

It all started with my daughter buying me a Hawaiian shirt for Christmas a couple years back then when the news came down of Mike's retirement in January I placed the order for a Phantom to match the shirt (in true MCB fashion ). When I placed my order I had a lengthy conversation with Mike, again a true gentleman, and explained the reason for the build. Over all the years I have only ordered parts from him and never a complete Phantom that was mine, now I have a Phantom that will be mine forever! While talking with Mike today he said this is the very last custom Phantom that will ever be built by CCI and I can't wait to receive it next week, just in time for it to start warming up to play some Stock Class.

Turbo! Nice!

Would you be willing to post the serial # when you get it? It would be interesting.

Sure I can do that, plus I'll post pictures in the Phantom Photo section.

Turbo, I just got off the phone w/ Mike and he told me he just mailed your marker today so it's on the way to you. I'm going over next week to see him & deliver the case I made for the last Revolution.

Wow Turbo I just looked at the pic Mike sent me of your marker. OMG that is one of of not the sweetest ano I have seen from CCI. Mike totally out did himself on this build. That will be a collector item for sure.

Anyone know who "J" is? Sent Mike an email the other day and got a nice reply from a "J" perhaps this individual is taking over the parts and support in June?
