There are plenty of people interested but it doesn't seem that anyone with the necessary expertise to "lead" is interested. There was another thread started and a bunch of people said they would like to participate but no gunsmith or person with appropriate knowledge replied.

I'd like to participate.

1911's are milling machine intensive.
They really don't lend themselves to backyard build parties because nobody has milling machines in their backyard.
AK's use a bunch of different handheld tools and a few press fixtures.
Much easier to tether those in a backyard and have a build party.

It would take a lot of milling machines and tooling to do a 1911 build party.
The issue is that most people that have a Iot of milling machines usually keep them in their business.
They don't want to risk their business machinery by letting a bunch of total strangers use them.

The trick would to be to get 10 people together and form a "collective".
Each person buys in for $500.
Then you have $5000 towards purchasing the machinery.
Then the ten people get to use the machine to finish their projects.
When the first ten people are done, then they can rent out the machine to others and the ten collective members get some return on their investment after tooling loss and wear are accounted for.

Well what I hand in my twisted little mind was people going to like the Ares build to get the initial CNC work done before hand. So that milling is all done. I know it isn't an 80% any more but there is still a lot of work to do.

Then going to a build party with all of their parts where some knowledgable people can help them get started and show them what need to be fitted and how to go about it. I don't expect to finish the gun in a day or two but at least get shown the tools needed, some techniques, and in general what needs to be done in a hands on environment with someone that has done it several times. Then the attendees can go off and finish the fitting on their own.

That was what I was thinking but I am very new to this so tell me is this doesn't make sense.

That is a great idea! I like it, if Ares can just get there equipment fixed. Then spend a weekend with couple people who have built a few of them to gain some knowledge and idea's.
