Response to Then what criteria do you buld/judge against?
...assesment of the process? Feel free to let me know here or via email. Honestly, after reviewing all the submissions, then Stevens came through... I was blown away.
As stated, it is very difficult to compete when someone has all the tooling to make guns from scratch if need be. I have a creative side, but do not own the tools to make much of the ideas come fruition. Only select 'builds' get the treatment of my funds. Machine time is pricy when it comes to that point. Unless you have pal or find a person willing to take a charity case like I have. Thank you Steven!
BTW, may post some pics this evening of the build progress... The pump tube is off being slotted at the local machine shop, but have the lower-rear section nearly finished...
