Is anyone interested in a thread with lots of pictures

of the .45 Colt rifle build? I can take pictures of all the work required to fit the new barrel and extractor/ejector in the existing barrel. This one is going to be a little different from the others. The extractor/ejector is totally different from the NEF ones I did, so the steps to make a new one will be sort of interesting.

    Since I never built a .45 Colt rifle, Yes I'm interested.

    Maybe if I do this, then that guy from Mozambique WITH A LATHE HE DOESN'T USE will be inspired to do something similar. :tooth:

    I may just go ahead and do both the .45 Colt and .45 ACP at the same time since the barrel work on these two will be reduced a good bit. Extractor/ejector will be the time consuming part on these. With the barrel length, the .45 ACP will be pretty quiet all on it's own.

    Already built it in my head several times over. As the Chief Engineer and CEO and CFO of this endeavor, I will listen to suggestions from consulting engineers, and promptly ignore them! :rotflmao:

    You mean everytime you shoot one of your guns somebody's house starts on fire? :tooth: Yes please show your build. It will be really interesting to watch!
