I got this rusty Bolo shot out bore in a garage sale for $100. Bead blasted it without taking off letters or numbers. It was a hot mess. The bore shot out. Sent upper to Redman out on the west coast for barrel relining. Put a smooth parkerize finish and new Wolf springs and repro grips. Dang thing shoots point of aim and reliable too. Serial dates it to 1921 and story goes was bring back from WW2. Happy Thanksgiving,God Bless

Great restore results and now you have a "killer priced" shooter!! Congrats.
$400 does not buy much Bolo for sure. The parkerize over the bead blast hid the blemishs and gave it a satin dull look. The Chinese repro grips were not that well fitted,but will do. She barks pretty good!! I got 400rds of ammo,but today its $50 a box. I shoot it 20rds a time for amusement. Would not CCW it for sure,but in its day it was a killer Automatic.
