Riveted mail

Oooh! *drool*

I've been wanting a set forever, and this is reasonably priced, I think. The thing that really caught my eye is that it's only 15 lbs. I see how this is going to work-- I'll finally finish out the length on my aluminum set after all these years, and put it aside to wear some riveted stuff!

Better start saving my pennies.

i think they are/ or were the same thing. GDFB uk was selling their mail only thru H.E. for the USA. but they became lax and couldnt keep up with H.E.'s demands so they found another retailer.
