Actually, I'm good w/ that.    Only a few cents worth will be damaged, the rest can be reused.

With the exception of a few things like prettying-up the dust cover, making the front sight post, front sling loop, and firing pin...this build is essentially done (in so far as showing it off here). I'll come back and give a range report and such.

I just realized that I have been monkeying around with this for about 1 year now. It has been fun, but very challenging (for me). I'm looking forward to getting it out and shooting it before too long.









Thank you for the interest.

-Ken

Well what can I say? I am totally gobsmacked and I've run out of superlatives to use.
Seeing it completed in the blue is fantastic, I reckon this has got to be the build of the year.
I look to the range report.

What is your next project going to be? A V1 Doodlebug fabricated from some recycled trash cans and a couple of shed doors

You should be rightly chuffed to bits with this one Ken, it has turned out to be a right little beauty.

Funny you mention that Sora, I have a cunning plan to attach a pulse jet motor to a modified shopping cart along with a pair of small hybrid rocket boosters using nitrous oxide and toffee/peanuts.

The current speed record for a shopping cart is 48 MPH, I reckon I should be able to get one to three figures.

Watch this spaaaaaaaaaaace!!

It still won't be as neat as Kens MP44 though

I have a good friend that I wasn't aware that he owned a static MP43. This specimen was a parts kit re-weld (quite nicely done) and has a plugged barrel. Very nice piece none the less. I was honered that he let me take it into my possession to examine. I thought it would be fun to take some photos of it next o my replica '44 and share...

















Is it just me, or has this board been dogging lately?

-Ken

I had to double check that first photo several times referring back to the photo of yours on its own Ken, in order to work out which was which.
It looks incredible on its own, but it is only when placed beside a genuine one that you realise just what an amazing build this is.

Any updates on the range report? This build has me all hot and bothered. Very inspiring!

I started something similar years ago, but never made more progress than this:

Might get back at it. Really excited about your rib stamping results in particular.
