    As the weather turns craptastic, I've found that I focus on various gun project more during that time. Though, presently, I am between projects.

    Anyone have a gunsmithing project, build, , etc. they are working on? How's the progress?

    My goal is to rebuild the work bench in my shop and get all the reloading stuff I just bought set up!:)

    Have a couple long guns that need some work. Would like to get them dialed in as well.

    Teachers are a bit opposite. I am refilling my larders for the long summer months. That being said, there’s always one or two rifles waiting to be built...

    That sounds like a neat project. I remember tinkering with Mausers back in the day. Look forward to the pics. :)

    I’m carving on more 80%ers, as well as setting up the Rock Chucker press that I recently acquired, also going to get a .308 Tikka from @LuckySG this winter, as well as a Dillon XL650 rig.... :D

    There's a sound plan. Don't forget your Birkenstocks, patchouli oil and tofu.

    I got a jump start and moved both of my safes. I’m getting a permanent reloading bench set up on “my” side of the garage :rolleyes:

    Indeed!
    Well, more like modding, not actually gun smithing.

    Ive just finished fitting all my eligible pistols with wood grip panels. Really fell back in love with the blued steel and wood look. Attempting to do the same with a few of my rifles as well.
    (SOCOM, 10/22 and Npap)

    I have a Zastava Npap that Im piecing together accessory wise.
    Folding hinge, sling loop, OD green surplus sling and a V2-MWI optics mount. Going for a Tobuk type look.

    After that Ive got my Socom 16, I purchased a wood M14 stock from a member here. Going to fill the selector lever area with a Fulton Armory faux selector kit. After that just need a gen 4 springfield armory optics mount and its finished.

    Lastly, Im going to mess around with my G17, going to get an Endo Tactical stock/brace adapter, folding hinge, gen 2 shockwave brace. And put it all together.. Since I dont have the cash to invest in a brand new PCC, I figured Id trick out my G17, slap a brace on there and make something unique. Seen a few pics online, looks really fun.

    I plan on building an AR just so I will know more about the ones I already have. Lots of reloading to do also.
