Re: Brads Tiger

Gun very similar to the sealey one I have used for years.i always used to drill extra drain holes.3 in the cills,1 at bottom of front wing and 1 in the front end of the rear wing.just so that any water that gets in there can drain out.i also used to inject wax oil thro these holes.
