    I recently purchased this Series 70 Gold Cup....It came with the "Master Comp IV" and fitted barrel and bushing on it, along with the original barrel and bushing, and engraved under the ejection port is "Jeff`s Gun Repair", supposedly where the pistol was "customized" with the barrel, comp, trigger, trigger job, and extended mag release. I don`t claim to be a pistol shooter, but this thing makes even me look good! I have never had a pistol this accurate.

    Question is....Anybody got any idea who "Jeff`s Gun Repair" is?

    Found this info:
    JEFF'S GUN REPAIR
    Rt.5,Box29,
    Boone, NC 28607,
    (704) 264:2688

    This was found in a very old (Feb 1983) copy of American Handgunner. No idea if the contact info is still current. Apparently this guy specialized in PPC/IPSC guns.
