I have been involved in 5 builds before this weekend.
4 bent flats, and one milled re-weld. All of which are still firing strong.
Today I got to see my good friend's first build test fired.
Over 200 rounds down the pipe with really good accuracy, and only a slight file modification needed within the first 10 rounds to round the front top of the pistol grip to allow free movement of the rear of the trigger (darn Tapco SAW grips).
Rifle ran like a top after that.
That makes number 6!
Congratulations Tom on a job well done, and to me for maintaining my patience while tutoring, and picking up broken punches, drill bits, and taps (he took me to the hardware store afterward to stock me back up ).
