  • Six minus three equals...?

    In an effort to bring the signal-to-noise ratio back up a bit, here's another project I did late last winter. Some of you may remember the first one I did, which was also cutting a 6" down to 3".

    In the first one I used the front half, in order to save the machined-in-place front sight. This time, that wasn't possible due to the barrel profile, forcing me to come up with a way to move the sight back.

    After a bit of contemplation, here's how I did it:

          That sort of work sure looks like fun, Doc!

                  ok, kinda ot here, but...

                  has vp ever given thought/ been asked to do a gunsmithing mag???

                  i dont know if there would be enough intrest for it, but i know for sure id subscribe from the first issue.

                  for the most part, my favorite articles are the gunsmithing ones in mw

                    Hmm. Not much balance in this post as far as home shop machining in Canada goes. While the ownership of pistols is still legal here it is illegal to modify a pistol to have a barrel less than 4.1 inches long.

                    I think posting information describing activities that are a felony offense is quite a bit more objectionable than my posts of metal fabrication.

                      Doc,

                      First off, very nice work. I own 2 small caliber hand guns (.22 and 7mm) and have never fired a big caliber hand gun, how does cutting the barrel down affect the overall balance? is it harder to handle? and what about the accuracy?

                        I'm sorry you live in a totalitarian state and glad that I don't.
                        I, for one, enjoyed the post and the fine workmanship.
                        Tomorrow I am going to finish parkerizing my second 50 caliber machine gun.
                        Have fun up there.

                        I cut it off twice and it's still too short!

                          It's less totalitarian than the USA. We still have firearms.

                          We also have the freedom to travel and return at will. Too bad you can't say the same, at least not if you want to get back in again.

                            Evan, Since when did you get a Prescription for Grumpy Pills?

                            Go build something else, and Please, if it is not machinist oriented,don't be surprised if you get flamed.

                              It works both ways. This board has a lot of members from outside the US.
