Beemer,

I came across this old add on FB today. I circled the interesting part.

Notice it is marked 41 AMP instead of 41 JMP.  I asked Jurras about it and he said they were mismarked.

I have seen other of the Covina barrels marked 41 AMP.

I just wanted to see what Lee and his huge ego thought of it.

I heard a story from Ed O'Neil while I was selling barrels and parts for TDE.  Lee ordered, or said he was going to order 100 .41 JMP barrels in 6.5" for his custom 100 series guns.  After receiving the first 50 barrels, Lee discovered that the public didn't like the .41 JMP.  Even Lee didn't like the .41 JMP.  Lee then told Harry that he didn't want the remainder of the barrels and that Harry could just sell them himself.  Harry had a hard time selling them and ended up giving away many of them as Christmas bonuses.  I bought one of these barrels from a secretary at the factory.  Harry was said to not be happy with Lee over this.  The fact is that from this point on, Harry never again marked the .41's with a JMP.  He changed it to AMP.  Maybe Harry was mad about Lee abandoning the .41 or maybe Harry didn't feel he had permission to mark the barrels JMP.  I'm sure someone here knows why Harry did this. 

An armed society is a polite society.
