I have 5stocks I am refinishing [3 M14s, one thompson and one Garand]along with one 1911 I am accurizing.
I can't believe how well the M1As and Garands are turning out tho it is slow going, using tung oil. The 1911 is coming along slow but sure also, and I am done getting the BBL locked up properly, and the trigger is a nice 4 lbs, just about where I personally like it.

I've got this G3 kit\reciever that has been floating around my desk for 3 years now with the intention of sending it in to have it built.

Hasn't happened yet.

Polytech M14 I'm having accurized a step at a time. Just got a TRW bolt in it for $35. HaHa!

Not me doing the work, but I have a Colt Series 80 1911 that I'm having my uncle (the family gunsmith) install Ed Brown hardcore parts and a Bar-Sto barrel on. When he's done there shouldn't be a single stock part on the gun. Afterwards I plan on getting Heinie sights installed, checkering on the frontstrap, and a few other odds and ends. Should be pretty cool for my first 1911

I'm saving up for a CZ-52, Romak-3, CZ-75B, and AR-15. The AR will likely be in pieces instead of an entire gun. Probably take me two or three years to afford it all too.

Make sure you don't have a kaboom and you have it headspaced correctly. Corks can be deadly if they become untethered.

9mm AR with A3 upper, still need a F/S and a collapsable stock and I'm done.

I've been getting stuff for my 10/22 lately... and it's got me to thinking. Wouldn't it be fun to put together a .17 Mach2? I think I'm going to build one. That way I can put my 10/22 back to stock form and I won't have to hear my wife say "That doesn't even look like the gun I bought you for Christmas a year ago."

I have an old 12 ga double with a broken/missing stock, and I'm going to try whittling down an 870 stock to fit on it. Then I'll distress the wood so it looks appropriately old, and then hang the gun on the wall.

Whew....let's see:



Upgrading SP1A1 to full AR-15 status with a new proper front pin dimension lower.

Doing the same with my SP2 Carbine

Browning High Power has been modded and blasted. Just waiting for the Night Site cuts to get finished and then it's park and Duracoat time. Ordering full leather from Galco.

Re-finishing the stock on my M1A Scout from Camo to Grey


Possible, later this year mods: the Scout will be getting an LRB forged Reciever/Scout Barrel combo (CHROME LINED!!!) and the rack grade gun will be gettting just the Reciever.....there will FINALLY be NO Springfield Armory guns anywhere near my safe.

ETA: here's a thread in the Armory on nearly the same subject. Some cool projects going on there, too.

Gonna replace some MIM parts in my new 1911 with EB then I'm building a middy AR with rifle rail and ACOG.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 6:14:06 PM EDT
Been trying to parkerize and assemble an M1-A for three years now. I'll get around to it sometime.
Link Posted: 1/14/2006 6:19:24 PM EDT
Let's see....

Need to slick up a .45LC Winchester 94AE
Need to install JP springs and smooth triggers in 2 ARs
Need to re-coat my .223 suppressor
Need to make about 1000 rounds of .45LC
Need to make about 500 rounds of .45ACP
Need to make several lots of .308 to see which will group out of my FN
Need to slick up a 12ga SxS coach gun
Need to find the parts to fix a Stevens 315 (or just give up and sell it)
Need to modify a drum mag for my PPS so that it will feed reliably

Add in some car projects:
Need to realign both doors on my Mach
Need to realign the window glass on my Mach
Need to remove the dash pad from my Mach and replace some stuff
Need to relocate some gauges in my Mach
Need to install a new tach in my Mach
Need to go ahead and install the mud guards on the Avalanche

Let's not forget the wife and kids.
Let's not forget that the kitchen still needs to be finished.
Let's not forget my full time job.
Let's not forget that I'm in my last semester of college (assuming I get through this damn course in one piece).

I can't imagine why my gun project list seems to be growing.
