    Had a piece of Fortal laying around trying to figure out what I was going to make out of it.
    Looks pretty good so far.

    Oh, a simple basic backyard project with old hand tools that happened to be laying around. Very nice.

    Will this be simulated or an actual working model?

    looks like a 1911 Frame. Do you have John Moses Brownings prints for this project? Good luck.

    My clever iPhone changed reamers (above) to readers. The project is a 1911 frame for now, next will be the slide. Some small parts will be purchased along with the barrel. Prob. make the hammer and sear.

    Habib,

    Why would he need bail?? It's perfectly legal to make a gun for your own use as long as you don't break any NFA/BATF laws. Making a pistol as such does not. Of course i have noticed you like to just throw out stupid statements and then run.
