When all four sides are done take it to the belt sander for a nice (super smooth) finish:
I will be cleaning the interior sides, and rails tomorrow as well as reaming back out the (needed ones only for a semi auto) FCG holes that got filled in during the weld.
Promised an interior picture to Fredie.
Here's what it looks like inside before clean up:
I will post another after it's cleaned.
Alright...........Everybody feel better now?
I know I do.
On a more serious note I am happy for your concern of my well being, and staying legal with my projects.
The notch in the right side interior rail is also welded shut currently (seen in second picture of this post).
The auto sear, and rate reducer that came in my kit were torch cut, and discarded before work on the center repair section began.
The underfolder stock hole openings will also be welded shut before the barrel is re-profiled, and cut, and before the rear receiver stub is connected to the center repair section.
CA has a constructive possession law that requires that I need to have a dedicated pistol receiver which is 'unable to accept a buttstock' before I have a short barrel in my possession unless I have a tax stamp for an SBR.
This is also why the 'full auto parts' were destroyed before any work began.
I am making every effort to ensure my center repair section is 'semi auto only', and 'unable to accept a buttstock' BEFORE the front , and rear receiver stubs are ever fitted to the center repair section
As a side note:
I believe in any future postings of re-welding projects when using cut receivers I will make it a point to FIRST weld shut any 'evil' features that the scrap chunks of metal may have.
I am sorry if the postings on this WIP scrap piece caused any undue stress. That was not my intent. I only wished to share my current project with other gun people who might appreciate it.
Again my apologies.
