This definitely no James P. SSP level of a project, but it keeps me off the streets!
Haven't got too much done due to real life, but here's an update.
Got the trigger blade finished. The lower portion has had extra brass layers laminated to it (soldered) for about a 3/16" face width. Files, hack saw,belt sander and paper to get it to shape. Used a file and belt sander to remove the rings around the safety button holes and the nubs that located the grip panels. Today I got the slot for the trigger and the hole for the action screw done.
Now to decide how I want to tackle the rest of the inletting. The grip frame is 1/2" thick, but the 1/2" plywood is shade thinner (not many lumber products today actually measure what they're labeled as! lol). Thinking I may run the grip frame (perhaps I should now call it the trigger frame!) over the belt sander a bit more so it will slide right into the pocket once the stock is laminated. Will still have to inlet for the pump tube, but that's easier than digging out the slot for the trigger frame.
I plink, therefore I am.
