Term of the day: A Box of Gun

In the comments on a post talking about how hard it is to disassemble John Pedersen's Remington 51, the Tam explains what a box of gun is:


"And when I say "eventually", I mean it sat in the safe in a large plastic bag for three years before the scars - both physical and emotional - healed sufficiently to try a second time..."

You had what it known in the industry as "a box of gun".

I cannot tell you how many times over the years I've booked in a big sack or box of parts... :D

Heh. Great term.

Had a gunsmith tell me he made a lot of money putting Ruger MKII's back together.
