    As much as I'd like to agree....

    My wife just fired a 20 round mag through it. She got a kick out of it; they are fun to shoot.

    But I put a little too much room in the mag well and unless forward pressure is put on the mag there is a failure to feed. Happened twice with her.

    Need to weld a bead front high and rear low then back in the mill.

    Well! Working without dimensions and you screwed it up?

    Tsk, tsk, tsk!

    Seems to me you did do excellent work, it was the "psychic engineering" where you dropped the ball.

    Yes, I agree with the other persons here about that you have done a outstanding job with the reweld.
    About mags for a 68, maybe a HKmp5 mag could be made to fit. Then it could have a 30round curved mag instead of a straight mag?

    The procedures will be shown below. A milling machine is an absolutely required piece of equipment for this build. Depending upon where the torch cuts were made, the machining runs from challenging to difficult. The most reasonable way of doing this project is to buy the receiver already machined.

    It is interesting that I could uncover no thread anywhere showing a re-weld started and finishing with an operating pistol. I told Max about this one and no one else -- I wasn't sure it was going to work!

    EzFeed at weaponeer.net did one.

    Thanks Dave -- CWtoyota's thread I saw but I didn't see ezfeed's. I'll go back and look again.

    The ejector comes out first then the mag release and bolt hold open.

    There are flat surfaces which make things easier but the metal walls are very thin.



    My apologies to traditionalists who want them the way they came. This one required much less internal machining to make it work however the cost was removal of a bolt lock safety. I've treated those who propose leaving parts out of guns with scorn; I now have my comeuppance. The bouncing weight in the handgrip has been left out, the hammer block pin was omitted, I'll try to adapt the trigger axis pin to an internal retainer and loose the external retainer, and the trigger axis pin is held in place with hitch pins!
