I added some new equipment to my shop this last month. Now I get to build me some new toys. :D

and a Lathe to go alone with the mill.

Still working on getting the necessary tooling together.

In the process of picking up a couple of barrel blanks.

This knee bend mill sure beats the tabletop model I had when I built my 1911. I'm planning on making a few more, now that I have some good equipment. I'm also getting into turning rifle blanks and building them out. :D

I saw somwhere online where a machinist made a complete Beretta 92, just to see if he could. I don't know how you'd get around the Feds with no serial number?

As long as you don't sell it it's legal, for personal use. You have to put a SN on it for sale. That's why there is market for 80% receivers. I can buy a completed receiver cheaper than I can a 80% one.
