Man that is a damm shame that a couple idiots wreaked it for every one. The 500 S&W you built was IMOO one of the most interesting builds I have seen on the boards. I have some machinery but My skills are not any were near profesional. I never have a enough tooling to do what I want. Im kicking around taking a machine shop cource at the trade colledge while im not working. I hear the head instructor is very pro gun. I have a 50 BMG barrel That Id like to build a reciver for but Im only going to do it if Im confident it temperd right and safe. I hope you find a way to carry on your projects as Im sure that wildcat would be a awsome build.Well 1BG can give you a ton of excuses but the main one is " I can't use the machines after work any more". Two other kids at work screwed up by fighting about toys (car puss and motorcycle wuss). Boss said NO more personal work period. All this went down about 8 months ago and Myself and a hand full of others got screwed cuz of the wuss & puss. I have a buddy that will let me use his machines but he has a business and it's super pain to to to over there and work around his schedule without taking advantage of his friendship. So I have two .500 barrel blanks, two 410 Saiga bolts and carriers (got em from Dinzag) , 100 NEW 338 Ultra Mag cases and a bunch of other parts in limbo. I have kept busy with some "normal" AK/RPK projects and hunting season is about to start. I'll be chasing birds next weekend. Noticed some of your projects on a couple of sites. I respect your being able to "Think outside the box mentality", understanding of mechanical principles and pride in quality workmanship.
