    Well, this is what I initially was working on, then I had a change of heart.

    This is my romanian draco pistol. A ton of fun, but not very practical. The pistol is great, but the finish sucks. I almost posted it on here to sell, but decided to go a different route.

    This is what I have to work with now:

    I've seen quite a few pictures on this forum, but I am looking for suggestions/ideas, whatever. Going to start over on this one. Starting out with a new finish. From there. I don't know. Krink-type build?

    Any ideas?

    Anyone have some good pictures?

    thanks,
    Tuck

    Are you looking to stay with a pistol build or are you going to make a SBR?
    Here is my pistol build....It has a 9" barrel. Built from Romy "G" parts.

    Here is another one I built with an 11" barrel and I have not put any kind of a finish on it. This one is also a Romy"G".

    The finish on the first one is Durcoat. With an airbrush, and there peel and spray kits. I was able to do three guns like this with one paint kit. I don't know what direction you want to go but I guess I will start with some ideas.

    I am planning to get some parts at the next show in
    Puyallup:

    Back to wood forearm and a add a slant or a krink style muzzle brake. I'm using the forearm, grip, and the krebs brake on a different rifle right now.

    After that, I am debating just trade it for a fixed stock, plain jane, "pre ban" style rifle.
