Dude, looking forward to your labels. Simply the best. Gives the pack that "realistic" touch with their industrial look.

My aim is to have my build looking almost exactly like yours. Very beautiful looking pack. Are your elbows real or recast? Nevermind, I probably should've read the parts list...
Thanks man, I appreciate that. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I just received my aluminum thrower today so keep close for when I post it.

Looking forward to seeing your thrower build! Mine is Probly going to be a lot slower than yours...
It wouldn't even be much of a build because RJ(dimensional fabrications) did such an incredible job, doesn't really leave me much room to put anything together haha.

But I will still show what I did along the way. First thing I wanna do is start sanding down the extra metal around the drill holes. I won't start any real work till next week after this holiday weekend.

Finally received my aluminum thrower last Friday.

These were shots I took right out of the box. However, I have started drilling out holes, also started cleaning up certain areas on the thrower and will post updated pictures sometime later.

I finished most of the work on the gun body, trigger box, and instrument bar.

Drill out the appropriate holes and tapped them.

Tomorrow I will continue finishing these parts and start on the front handle. The screws on the Clippard are not accurate. I'm just using the default screws till I get the slotted fillister screws.

I order brown gun grips from Nick-a-Tron so hopefully those can get here in the next few weeks. Also, have the front cylinder and rear cylinder arriving hopefully tomorrow from jimbo7.

That's incredible.

This is probably one of the first guns I have seen that actually countersunk a hat light properly into an aluminum gun! Very nicely done!
