My day job is occupying all of my time at the moment. That is why I cannot do anything about the projects yet. It is awesome to have a job, not complaining. Just sucks that I have absolutely no time to do the stuff I really want to do.
I am hoping to be able to start working on the revolvers first later this year. Then the Enfield early next year, and lastly 1897…
New barrel (ported or threaded, not sure yet) for my XD, new sights for it as well, and stipple the grip. Once that’s all done, I’ll have it OD green and multicam cerakoted.
New handguard, charging handle, mag release, grip, optic (probably Aimpoint PRO, but I may do a Vortex UH1), Grey Ghost Gear SB-Sac for the CZ scorpion.
Trade in my two P320s for an X-Carry P320, cut the slide for a SigSauer RDS.
Drop a new front bead (XS bigdot) on my 930 JM pro. Adjust the stock to fit my height.
Maybe do a custom trigger and snagless hammer for my S&W 686+, with a hogue extended cylinder release. I’m undecided on this though.
Eventually (far down the road) pick up a PWS Mk220 Mod-1M. Replace furniture with FDE magpul precision adjustable stock and MIAD grip. Drop a Vortex Viper PST Gen II 3-15 on it with a Magpul bipod. Shoot inch groups. Be happy.
Projects stack up when I’m overseas and spend my income on gun parts.
My side of the house isn’t at the M17 yet; we’re still using the original M9. But I can hope that eventually our guys get the M17. It’s just a waiting game. As for pictures, I’ll post when I can. Just don’t expect any soon, sorry!
The Marine Corps will always be the red-headed step child. Right now, I only know of the army (slowly) switching to the M17. Which means it will be decades until the Corps switches over. I’d give you guys more info on the subject if I could, but it’s not my field of experience, and as any other Marine knows, (insert rank) don’t know.
I have a few sittin around in the shop at the house
I need to color fill and polish the bolt on a psak 47
I also have a few color inlays in slides that I need to do
Next week my buddy that molds plastics are gonna copy a 1911 pewter grip into a soft (houge like polymer)
