Quoted from sed6:

No, use your home over. No smell. Wife watched me do some parts for my can crusher a few weeks ago and didn't have any complaints. The stuff is awesome.

Late to the party but I just found this thread and think this is awesome. You have plans for that? I wanna build one!

As for actual thread content here is the last gun I built, it was a gift for my Fathers 60th birthday. A bit of a blend of old and new. It's a pre-A1 frame and grip style for a classic look but I added a number of functional updates. Dovetailed front sight, lowered and flared ejection port, frontstrap serrations, lightweight trigger and a hardfit stainless match barrel.

Quoted from Fulltilt:

Dang.. nice! No one built me one for my 60th!

Well I'm always happy to do custom builds for people in trade for pins!

Quoted from navajas:

Anyone go to Shot Show?

I did but I was working the booth most of the time so I didn’t get to walk around much. I did spot this sweet little reskin.

Quoted from navajas:

That was at SHOT? Haha. Dang, even more jealous now. Where do you work? Anything cool catch your eye?

Yeah it was on 2-ball free play at the Real Tree booth. They have an insane full size cabin constructed and this was on the “front porch” area. It’s a rethemed Big Buck Hunter Pro which was very well done and played great.

I’m the production manager for Cabot Guns. If anyone is going to NRA in May we will have a #TS in our booth with a custom Cabot launcher I’m making. I’m going to try to live stream it and we are going to give a Cabot 1911 away to the best player.

Crossposting from the Shadow club thread, since I think I mentioned this project in this thread before.

I build 1911s and I always thought it would be cool to build a launcher out of a real one with functional ignition components. The kick in the ass I needed was that my company decided to take my Shadow to the NRA show in Dallas in a few weeks to feature in our booth. I'm honestly pretty lousy at documenting stuff but I've been trying to grab some photos along the way and thought you guys might get a kick out of the project.

Basically I built a pistol out of cosmetically unsalable parts with a dummy firing pin and I chopped the trigger block arm off of the grip safety so you don't have to have it depressed to pull the trigger. You know, for those last second pre-drain Mongol shots. Obviously it's only single action, so you have to manually cock the hammer, but if you do the ball launches at the same exact time as the hammer drop if you want it to drop, which feels pretty damn cool. Here is the switch test:

So far I've built the pistol and machined a mounting plate, which the gun will slide through and be welded into. Clearanced the barrel for wires by cutting off the lower lugs, and modified a magazine to act as the (removable for service) switch carrier. I also polished and recoated the carriage bolts because they were rusty and horrible and had mold marks all over them. I'm hoping to get it welded up in the next couple days so I can get it mounted.
