    Making guns in the garage

    This is what I like to do in my spare time:










    This one is in .40, I have used it in USPSA limited and IDPA ESP


    USPSA open division gun in 9mm Major

    These are a few years old. They both run.

    Nothing like machined parts, I love it! One of my friends is making cars from scratch the only thing he didn't make was the engine and tranny. I've been to his shop this man can make practically anything out of metal.

    It's just an RF45 clone. I did put a decent digital readout on it.

    No, I never heard of him until now. I just looked him up on line he's into Porsche's. My friend builds street rods from scratch using the same methods as Chris Runge such as building a wooden frame and then shaping the sheet metal to conform to it. He also fabricates all of the suspension components along with the chassis. He has also fabricated parts for aircraft restoration, P51 Mustangs, B17's and the like, along with components for a lot of the local hot rodder's and antique car enthusiasts of which I am one. Makes his own tools for specific tasks. This man is unbelievable and is a "down to earth" wonderful person besides. It's an honor to be in his presence and have him as a friend. He never brags about his skills and explains things in a "matter of fact" sort of way.

    Really impressive work.
    Years ago I worked for a few years in a small machine shop. Loved it and really miss it. Boss had to close shop for health reasons and laid everyone off, so i moved onto newer career opportunities, but i loved machining. Nothing like a fine tooled mill and lathe skill.

    Amazing stuff.
    Did you machine the barrel with the fluting and muzzle brake too?
