It’s a hobby now folks!!! I’m returning to Georgia this weekend and plan on spending time in the machine shop rearranging things so I can do some test machining of newly designed gun parts. The attorney e-mailed me a little while ago and permits are in place. For now, we’re a Type 7. At this time, in my hobby state, I don’t desire to license for destructuve devices. Sorry, but fully automatic weapons with armor piercing rounds are not my bag. Maybe in the future. Who knows.
Step one is a re-design of the venerable Colt Model 1911.
If you fancy the Colt 1911, below is a scanned set of March 11, 1960 Army blueprints for the M1911A1. It’s a pdf file and of couorse scaling is questionable. My working data is in a three-dimensional file.
