We are still gathering resumes for the ranch caretaker position, in northwestern Montana.  Please let any of your friends or relatives know about this opening, if they meet the qualifications and be interested in relocating.

A special request from JWR: To finish building some antique rifles, I’m in need of a few complete Chilean Mauser Model 1895 bolts. These can have either straight bolt handles, or the curved cavalry carbine style. I’m willing to pay the current market value for up to five bolts, or take them in trade on any of my inventory at Elk Creek Company.  Thanks!
