Mondays update 10-27

With the SAR show coming up quick the main push at Gun Lab is to finish out the VG1-5 project. Not all the rifles will be built prior to SAR, but the parts will be completed and the first 3 rifles will be completed. That is my goal at least. So right now we are going over every parts and finishing every detail as working on the barrel fluting press. To that end is what this post is about.  The first picture is of the front barrel support with its final locking notch cut in.
