Quick update

By now everyone thinks that I have fallen of the end of the earth, not true. It has been real busy both with my life and in the shop. Just a couple of update photo’s of progress in the shop. First is that the first, second and third op’s are now completed on 20 bolts.

Hope you enjoyed the update.

  • Looking great Ian, do you have the angle of the gas ports in the barrel at 12 degrees? I found some old notes from mine when we tested some back in the early 60′s that noted that the gas ports were at a 12 degree angle towards the front of the barrel which would put the gas blowing out into the end piece of the receiver. Thanks for the update Harry

  • The only barrel that I have made is the mock up one for fitting parts. I will start the actual barrels after I complete the front barrel supports and the bolts.

  • I understand completely. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could tend to our hobbies and associated sites full-time?! Keep posting – I’m very much enjoying your progress.

    Fantastic progress. I can’t find your email to contact you: have a question and would also like to send some info and pics.

    Thanks,
