I guess i would call the build officially started. I have been wanting to build a pistol even before building my first AR. The first rifle weighs in at 10.4 lbs, the second is an even 6 lbs, and the pistol i will be hoping to get between 3-4 lbs. This will mainly be for .22lr indoor range shooting and/or short range target shooting at the local tin can range. This will also be the end result of my first attempt at home anodizing. Therefore, this will be more of a show piece than a tactical go-to gun. If i drop it in the woods, it might actually be found.
