Da hell? .............. why?
Hmmm, welding parts together - I think I'd rather spend another $30 and just get a one-piece 80% receiver. I just don't have the skills or equipment for fine welding. Plus it does look a little odd.
Yup because welds ALWAYS hold
I think Im going to get one and JB weld the sucker together
Oooo yeah, the dark gray color of the JB Weld should provide a nice highlight to the joints of the lower. That should look great. I can't wait to see your finished product
Im a pretty good welder (by that I mean I do it for a living but am not one of those insanely skilled super welders) and I dont think I could make that look good. Best you can hope for is only a little ugly, but there will be some ugly no matter what you do.
I think if you are welding a receiver from metal plates, you are not going for pretty, you are going for mad max
it should have that covered
Hopefully, this isn't the future of gun ownership.
If I could weld, had a machine shop and was otherwise at all skilled woth metal work, Id totally buy one for a rainy day.
ok I ordered one. So, JB weld, Devcon plastic steel or loctite weld? +/- duct tape
worse case, I'll call it art
You could send it to me and I could weld it together and send you some pictures of it
Let me know how it turns out!
I'd seriously consider brazing that with 60% silver solder....
That's a good idea. I have some with a small butane torch I got to put on my mosin sight. It should work. I wonder what would take more sheering force? I thought about some golf club epoxy as well. That has to withstand a lot of repetitive hits
Once you get that procedure down, you can move on to the matching bolt kit
Reminds me of that guy that made an AK47 out of a shovel.
That shovel AK is super cool.
I probably am going to have to order one of these scrap metal parts kits just because.
If you wanted to make the trek up to my shop I could set you up to weld that sucker up.
