    Now that we've seen PBP sell off a chunk of his collection to fund a new "project", I think we are all wondering what it will be. I will start the speculation by wondering if it will be something like this.

    Ewww...that is a bit gross. :)

    The secret project is no real secret. I am going to spend the next year building a fully custom 1911 from scratch. I am even having the slide special made with special engraving. I have just reached a stage where just collecting "more of the same" does not really interest me that much right now. So I am going to do something unique that might reignite my interest a bit.:)

    I was trying to find something that looked like a super cool batman type gun and came across that. Too funny.

    Are you building it from real scratch like bare metal and machining everything? Or buying parts and putting it together? You must plan on putting some money ito it! Better show pictures!

    Methinks a work in progress thread will be in order to show the steps in the process. :thumbup:

    Don't bet on it. This thing is going to be unsellable when I finish anyway so I might as well shoot it. :)

    I thought about buying a raw forging and machining it. That is way to many hours standing in front of a mill, I have plenty of other things to waste time at! It would be cool to do a complete build yourself, how many hours, 100?

    I used to know a skilled machinist who was a rabid gun nut, reloader, and hunter. He had a substantial stash of pure ZIRCONIUM bar stock, and had the skills and tools to work it. But it was decades ago. And he was a Communist---you might not like him........................elsullo :D

    This is not a Batman gun, but how about a Superman rifle. :)
