Has anyone bought one of these for a '28 from IMA or Ohio Ordnance or from anywhere else? Ohio sells them for $100 less than IMA, I am wondering what condition they are in from either business. Has anyone used on a Westy Hurley? Thanks for any input.

I bought a complete 28A1 kit from IMA. The parts were great. HTH.

JDG,
I have several from IMA. All are Savage, they show no wear at all, condition on all is excellent to near mint. But I think the quality is not quite as good as it used to be according to what I have seen (running low?).
OOW sounds like a good company to deal with so I am giving them some business now. Call them and ask for an honest evaluation of their parts and their return policy.
My Savage frames work and fit fine on Colt & Savage guns but I don't have a WH to try it on.
Good luck,
Carey

I ordered the whole 28 IMA parts kit, and the frame was an outstanding AO. I use it on my WH because it's better quality than the WH that came on the gun -- more machining, such as the slot for the back of the stick mags. I also find that drums fit a little better. The finish was good to like new, but with a few remnants of black paint or protective coating that came right off.

Guys,

Thanks for all the input! I decided to go with Ohio as they are $100 cheaper and I figured they are coming from the same source. I spoke with Karl who assured me that the kits were in excellent condition and stated he would pick me a nice one, he sounded like a decent guy so I will trust that he will. I will let everyone know how the frame is when it arrives. Thanks again!

JDG: Next time you talk to "Karl" (Michael Krotz, the show guy) at OOW ask him about "Club Tequila". The parts sets I've seen at the OGCA shows are excellent except for the wood which has some dents. Larry

Thanks Larry, I will do that. I am considering getting some other parts from them if this trigger frame is in nice condition.
