This was one I found pretty cheap online. When it arrived I noticed a few peculiarities about it. It appears to be a cast frame. I don’t know what steel it is made from. I don’t think I’ve had one of those before, but I’m hoping it would still be strong and not prone to failure. It has light flashing on the front strap and quite a bit in the grip safety area on both sides. It is decked to the correct height, just needs the barrel seat cut. Bowtie area is not bored. The dust cover is squared on the outside but without rails.
What do you think I should do with this thing or how do you think I should approach it design-wise when I build? Should I go slab side to kind of match the dust cover or try doing something new/different with the dust cover? I’m terrible at design/aesthetics so I’d appreciate the community’s input.
