Here's a prototype I'd been working on, all the silver parts are cast metal. I decided to use metal because the resin components were just to flimshy and thin.




Real life got in the way and I never really went very far with it.

Beautiful, Matt. Smile

One small detail - the trigger/clutch/brake lever (whatever it is at the back) should still have a ball on the end. For what it's worth, all the images oldzey posted are correct except the Propstore one, which I believe is a restoration and so may not be 100% accurate.

Thanks!

Yes the clutch handle I have is too long, I need to section it and graft the round end on the back otherwise the handle would be much longer than the grip or the shield.

The few I've made have only trickled out of my shop, it's becoming too labor intensive to mass produce the way I make it, Honestly I only plan on making a couple more. I'll keep you informed.

Small update.

Here are some of the cold cast parts and pewter parts and some other doodads.



Big change is the receiver, I retooled it to be hollow, the old one was solid or needed to be rotocast a real pain either way. This way i can insert metal reenforcements in key spots to make them more durable.

Also shown are the proprietary parts in pewter that complete the lower. The grip mount and the ratchet plate would never survive in resin and the cocking handle slide is a much larger piece in real steel, I truncated it and made it more managable.





I'll have completed guns from the new molds very soon.

Awesome pic, I'm still trying to get dimensions on that 'counterweight' under the mid part of the gun, I call it the soup can. Smile
Also want to get a lock on the wire harness details, and what's going on with the front of the drum.

Heres a completed gun minus a few details, (I'm re working the drum shroud)

Too much gun not enough bench.
