    ...I birthed a baby.





    Thought you might find the sling attachment point of interest, as I haven't seen anybody do it this way yet...

    Thanks! Months of research and material gathering for only a weekends worth of unhurried work.

    Now I just have to get started on the rest of those kits I've been accumulating.

    I did the whole rifle in gunkote. Used cwtoyota's tools for the rivets. The riveting was the easiest part about building... for some reason I found that ironic as it was my biggest roadblock on the outset. The rest wasn't bad, just that whole first build-learning curve thing. The next one should go faster and turn out even slicker. Silver soldered the muzzle device, easy as pie.... glad I went that route. Pretty fun stuff! I liked that Arsenal USA reciever too, I feel lucky in that I really didn't have any issues with it as far as fitting goes. Can't wait to start on the next project.
