I agree with mustang72. I view guns as a tool. Of course want them to be sharp, but it is after all a tool... If you want something to collect dust, buy gold bars...Build it how you want it.

Or sell it to another "collector" and build what you want.

Chunk that old *** barrel and don't look back. Don't you hear it asking to be a .338 Edge ?

Absolutely! Why own it, if you can't use it? That'd be like me buying a chainsaw and leaving it stock, and in the box. Modify that bitch, and enjoy! Collecting is for boring old men, with nothing exciting in their life.
