Win40-82, Excellent looking 86. The 86 is a gun that I have always dreamed about and wanted but have yet to actually get one of any year or caliber.

Sixgun, Every time you post a photo I spend 10 min looking at not only the great rifle pictured but all the goodies in the background also. :mrgreen:

How much for the Colt dies?

I'd rather trade them for some other stuff. I think I paid about 65.00 or so for them. I could prob. go a little cheaper than that though just to not have extra in .45. I don't really have use for this set. I have never used this set at all.
