It's 1:30 AM and I just blew the aluminum dust off myself, so this is only going to be a teaser thread for now Decided this afternoon that I needed a new project, and this seemed as fun as anything. Started off with a hunk of .780" 7075-T6, just went to town with a schematic in hand. First hour: and this is where we're at after about 7 hours on the mill: It is going to become a functional firearm, chambered in .17 HM2. Waiting on a reply from ATF FTB about whether or not a buttstock would make this an SBR, being as this firearm will be designed and intended to be operated as a pistol, a 5.2" long 1/2 scale stock being aesthetic only, not a functional stock at all. We'll see, hopefully I don't have to tax stamp this critter, but I'll do what I have to. I have a long, looooooong way to go, but it's off to a good start. I will do a full detail build thread as things progress!
