    We took a standard 8-shot 500A and cut the end of the barrel and barrel lug off. We installed a KA-1212BR via hidden weld and turned the collar smooth on the lathe. We then put the lug and stub in a jig on the mill and cut the radius for the lug to match the 1.124" OD of the KA-1212BR. The lug was then silversoldered to the KA-1212BR at the appropriate distance and the whole ass'y was blasted and parkerized.

    EDIT: Sorry if the picture looks like butt, I didn't set up the usual lighting and gear for pic taking so it looks muddy and distorted.

    OK, we got a bit tied up this week, but finally buttoned it up yesterday. We added a SF-IV stock, SideSaddle, Wolff mag spring, and ST no-jam follower. The entire gun was sandblasted, parkerized, then Duracoated matte black. We installed a HiViz fiberoptic front bead as well. It was a lot of work but came out beautifully (the pics don't do it justice). It'll be at our table at the Phoenix show this weekend.


    This is what we started with:

    I was quite impressed with how it came out. I'm always nervous when we're trying something new, there is so much that can go wrong. The project went together smoothly, almost like we knew something about doing shotgun barrel work :D
