Thumbs up PSL Pistol Build Thread!!(TEST FIRE VIDEO UP!!!!!!!!!ON POST 7)

I decided I would make a build thread for my PSL pistol build now that I am somewhat close to finishing it. The receiver is just about completed, the barrel has been cut and re-profiled, the gas piston has been cut to size and piston head drilled out and will be welded on Thursday along with the newly sized gas tube by a friend who is a much more skilled welder than I am. Pictures are below of some of the steps (some things I forgot to photograph).

Cold Steel solutions 80% blank
I am about 85% done with the receiver portion; it took a lot of grinding and a lot of elbow grease with a file to get everything to fit in place. I still need to heat treat the axis pin holes (I just remembered ) and a few other little things and ill be ready to start riveting.

Safety selector hole took a lot of filing but came out very nice

Cutting, Filing and grinding out the magazine area (makes me wish I had a mill, it would have been so much easier and faster lol).
