Well, it was a long wait, but my Rambone finally showed up yesterday. I ordered it from Simple-Shot the day before the recall. Nathan was nice enough to ship out the other items I ordered and kept those of us on hold updated periodically via email as to when we could expect to receive them - great service!. And yesterday it finally arrived. I didn't have a lot of free time, but I did band it up and take about 10 shots. I'm pleased with the grip and how it shoots. I'm looking forward to giving it a more thorough workout in the near future. The finish is different than I expected, it's smooth and glossy. I guess I was expecting something more like a Bill Hayes or Scout type finish. Not bad and no complaints at all, just surprised. It looks nice and fits great in my hand. Nice design Joerg!
