You did a good job removing that.

No kidding!

I've been hacking up a bunch of bits & pieces lately, but I haven't quite got the nerve to start on my lower yet...

Super looking job!

How times have changed . . . A little over a year ago I let it be known that I was contemplating the same idea, and was lambasted for it-- called many nasty names for even considering making "such a bastard lower." Now we see proof that while it may not be 100% historically accurate, it looks damn fine. My hat's off to you, Quib.

what did you use to remove the mag fence?

Looks great.

In some ways, that's a smarter modification to make for "retro styling".

The rear reiforcements were added for a reason, not to mention being harder to remove.

Quib what kind of tools did you use? Dremel, files maybe some C5. I'm thinking about butchering I mean reprofiling some on one of mine. Any deatails would be very helpfull.

Well if you decide to dive in and butcher modify a lower keep us informed on the results!


I've already decided on a 653 clone. I'm going to reprofile the rear to A1 specs.
The victim er uh I mean receiver should be in my hands by Monday at the latest.
I will document with my camera every step of the way.
Stay tuned.

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread. (didn't want to turn this into a highjack)

I hate to say it, but it really looks like the cast lowers might offer a good, inexepnsive way to make a modded 'partial fence'lower. Cast lowers defintely go for a lot less, and it looks like the way Oly made the mag fence really lends itself to the modification. It also would be pretty easy to file down that offending rampant lion on the other side!

BTW, that is a GREAT tip on using the files and aluminum tape....outstanding job!

Link Posted: 8/2/2006 10:08:32 AM EDT
The Aluminum tape is an Excellent idea

any slip of the file would go into the tape and save the finish of the lower,

I'm on it, tonight

Good job Quib! That's the one thing I didn't like about it.

Looks great.
Link Posted: 8/11/2006 11:15:49 AM EDT
That looks great, QUIB! That's actually what bothered me about it too But are you gonna grind off some more of the detent recess (STILL dont know the real name for it ) and the front pivot pin area or just leave them? Either way it looks great!
