Work picked up and so did the surf, so I didn't get much of a chance to work on the project until yesterday.

Not sure why machining the 316L stainless was so imposing a thought. In fact, it was probably the easiest part of this project thus far.

I used this recipe for milling the tube:
Fresh, sharp carbide 4 flute center cutting endmill.
Run the mill at 650 rpm. It's a hand mill so I can only guess that the rate of feed was .5~.75 ips.
Always keep the cutter moving.
Use a good cutting fluid. I used Castrol Moly-Dee. This stuff is slicker than deer guts on a doorknob.

I radiused the edges of the trigger frame and then sanded and buffed everything.

There's only a few parts left to make. I found a leftover piece of not quite guitar quality koa for the stock. She should be a looker.

I think she'll be spittin' lead not to long from now.

More to follow.

That's going to be a real stunner when you get it finished. Just what you have done so far is truly impressive.

Thanks for keeping us updated on your progress.

Fantastic with great attention to detail.
I can't wait for your next post.
You're going to need a beautiful lump of wood to compliment the gun.
Thanks for the pics.

that is amazing work Jim.

What dimension is your end plug screw holes from the tube end?

I am hoping it is the angle as it 'appears' to be a bit short
What pressure is your goal?

Thank you so much for sharing your project
