This is going to be just the first prototype. I have more of the longer rough cut piece to try to refine work. After a long day at work, I sit down for a few hours to work on it. My wife just smiles, probably thinks I’m a total nut.

If I had a milling machine I could make it a lot more professional looking.
Could have fooled me, it already looks like it was done on a milling machine. Great job.

Few more pics. Worked out ok. Next step some Aluminum Black. Then make a few more and refine the work. Then move onto the front sight.

Thanks. I’m going to do a few more and improve on the design a bit and then start figuring out the front sight.

Do the front sight next and then you can discover any design changes you want for the final version by shooting it.
