Can’t wait to see
I’ve always loved that look. Had a Savage 24 with case hardened receiver on the rack in my room when I was 7. I tried to do it on some tools I made in shop class but never got the the “look”. Looking forward to this!
Phew! The title is 0%. I thought it was made from a hunk of metal. I assume that’s a typo, then.
I was still impressed though. Nice work.
Sorry, I guess the pictures looked like it was modified from a mostly already machined part.
In that case, WOW! I’m really impressed.
Edit: I went back and looked a little closer. Yeah, I see it now.
I assumed the same as Elena did, the reason for my confusion is it looks so damn perfect, you show the after pic first, which I took as a factory build
Please, give us an introduction thread so we can welcome you properly and, when you do, decipher your screen name
Excellent work @6un5_4r3_N347
I have definitely seen your username before.
Aeronautical chart, AMW poster or CIA bulletin?
I thought it was here. And I agree with it 100%
He is 1337
At first glance I thought I was looking at two different parts: the barrel and the slide. The first two pictures of the round stock, I thought was a barrel you cleaned up. The last pictures I thought was a partially done slide that you finished. But when I went back and looked closer I could see that you made the slide completely from the round stock.
Pretty cool, I must say.

I’m going to guess that his user name means:
“Guns are neat”.
Using some alpha-numeric substitution trickery lol
Oh, and that is some fantastic work btw…I’m sure envious of you guys with machine shops.
Never even heard of this project before…thank you for bringing it to our attention.
Looks like I may need to do a some investigation work on this little gem!
Sounds like a very good idea…definitely much easier to work aluminum by hand.
Sorry to necrobump, but is there any chance you’d be willing to share that fusion 360 file? This is my next build and I don’t have a receiver to model.
Are you trying to build a MKII or a MKIV?
I also did not have a receiver to model off of. I used a jig from Matrix Precision and pictures of a Mark IV to fill in the blanks. Most of that stuff I posted on WeaponsGuild. There’s a lot of good resources over there, and people currently (at the time of this reply) working on MKII builds.
If you can’t find what you are looking for, hit me up again and I’ll see if I can get you what you need.
I’m wanting to build a MKIV. I have a lower and a bolt, so I can probably figure everything out from that. I just figured if you had the file in fusion 360 it would be easy to pull dimensions from that as necessary.
These are the prints that I drew. They are wrong, because I did not have a Ruger to get dimensions from, but the gun works very well. I highly recommend looking at build threads on WG. Good luck, post pics of your progress, and let me know if you need anything else.
I appreciate it. Mine will be “wrong” as well, since the plan is to machine the receiver from a barrel blank and it be all one piece. The drawing will get me close as a starting point.
I forgot I’m already a member on WG, so I’ve been digging around their builds. I appreciate the reminder.
