    Thanks for the great comments, guys! According to the local weather forecast, they're calling for rain on Sunday, so looks like I'll try hittin' the range this Saturday.

    Thumbs up

    Great range session! Fired 60 rounds with absolutely no problems. It was a little breezy, so I decided to shoot at 50 yards.

    It started off shooting about 8" low and 6" to the right. A couple of sight adjustments later and this is what I got.



    Under 3" @ 50 yds. I think I'll keep it.

    Thank you, zteknik. For me, personally, I'd have to say I'm finished for a while. I do have a friend who wants me to help him build his own kit pretty soon. I guess I can show him the ropes.

    Thanks, B2B! Sorry for the late reply.

    My oven, or I should say my wife's oven, is just big enough. I suspend the receiver/barrel assembly with wire hooks, diagonally, from the baking rack. One through the muzzle and the other through the rear stock mount screw hole.

    The metal was prepped by abrasive blasting with 80 grit media and degreased well afterwards. The finish was applied with an "El Cheapo" airbrush from Harbor Freight. It's all you really need. Just use about 30psi and a light spray pattern. It helps if the metal is pre-heated to about 100 degrees just prior to spraying.

    Throw the assemby in a 300 degree pre-heated oven and wait 1 hour. Remove from oven, after it cools, and wipe it down with your favorite gun oil.
