Looking good, On to the drilling.

Not much to be said about drilling. One thing that has come up is drill flex. Whenever I’m drilling with a bushing I don’t put the jig tight in the vise. Leave yourself a ¼ inch or so. If the bit catches, the vise will stop it from spinning, otherwise the jig will self-center as you bring the bit down.

A mouse with 220 grit quickly takes off any mill marks. I'll clean that up a little more before the Cerakote.

The measurements are all nearly perfect but there's still a lot of fitting to do. That will need to wait till I'm in my easy chair watching a chick flick with the wife. Two birds with one stone.


Check out my engraving gallery on my website, Thanks
