WOW and I thought I had crazy ideas!
That's just too cool!
I thought of just using AL. but never steel.
If you build another use stainless steel and polish it.
What is the weight of it right now?

It was just due to the perspective of the camera , it fits fine.

The body of the trigger hangs down a little past the tubing , but other than welding a little piece of trim around it, can't be helped. Frankenschmacker is more of an industrial build anyway! I even left some weld bead showing....the paint job will bring it all together, that's what I keep telling myself.. :geek:

You DO have crazy ideas! You're just not alone, haha! I took a little off the stock, before that it was just a tad over 30#'s. Haven't weighed it since, but with paint and everything it should be between 29-30lbs. I have it primered up now to keep it from rusting, hoping to test it in the field soon so I can make any necessary modifications before I paint it. I have another one to be built, ( 20 SCC heavy barrel with block) prudence dictates one delve into the practical theater of real world testing before building the second one, IMO. Second and tertiary unforeseen circumstances seem to rise whenever a new approach is taken.

Fancy paint won't make it shoot any better but it will look nice Redmist. Can't wait to see it finished.

You should do the swirl paint job on it.
Maybe like black and red, red for the red mist!
