    Well here she is guys... ready for final sight in, duracoat, and a violin case. This has been a fun project and I am very pleased with the way it came out. The resemblence would fool the casual observer I think.

    Looks pretty sweet! How did you end up doing the internals on the rear sight?

    Feel free to copy. Since I took the last photos I lowered the ejection port about another 1/4" to givr the empties a little more room to get OUT.Im also going to replace the rear cap screws with something larger as I am getting a little peening at the screw holes. I also replaced the derlin spacer with a rubber 1 to soften the bolt hitting the rear cap.
