In this report we will be writing about the frame and fire control part of the pistol. Again the pistol was made with out the use of an actual milling machine of lathe. It was made from hand tools, welders, and a drill press. Once again to get an idea of the final product here is a picture of the completed pistol.
The first step was to draw out a basic concept of what you wanted the shape of the frame to be. Next using this paper pattern trace it onto the sheet steel and then start drilling a number of holes to make it easier to cut it out.
Four steel metal patterns completed. Notice the match holes that were drilled in the four patterns.Welding the front radius on to the grip panel.
A couple of pictures showing the fir control mechanism disassembled and assembled.
In part three of this series we will have a few video’s of the trigger mechanism and of the pistol cycling manually. So stay tuned.
