Pics are a little fuzzy but you get the Idea.








These latest pics are of the flash supressor attached to the upper. I also included another upper with a 5.5" flash surpressor.

Lets see...

A pieces of metal, electricity, wear on machinery, misc. supplies and your time.
Congratulations you have the most expensive FH among all of us.

Sorry but I can't help it... it's the bean counter in me.



Seriously, good job, it looks nice.

Some of you guys act like real pricks...... I find it completely kewl when I someone sees something and says, "I bet I can make one like that !"

There is nothing more satisfying than being able to make neat things for your own firearms.

What else can you make? try a 2 stage trigger.

I have the Belgian multi-purpose device on my FAL (it's really just a muzzle brake) I designed a clip on cover for it to disable it as a brake so it wont be so loud while hunting ....

I made a CAD drawing for this item, can you make anything?

Nice work. Did you have a prototype to take measurements from, or make your own? How did you finish it?

Nice job AKASL. I wish I had your mechanical aptitude.
There is no way I could make anything for my firearms.
I could break a block of titanium with a rubber mallet.
All thumbs...LOL.

You know... there IS a full machine shop that would be happy to make that for you... and it's right near by. As a matter of fact, there is a free Arfcom license plate frame there waiting on you.
