Started sculpting a eagle and shield out of the hammer and break action lever. Im still working the beak to make it more raptor then duck need to bevel it more on the sides so its more pointed than square right now it could be a duck vulture raptor just gotta shape the beak right
thou I'm hindered because the gun is riveted not screwed together so i cant take the hammer out and anneal it to soften for carving so its slow going
as a slip here would not be good.

new model name on the Form 2 [smilie=011.gif]
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Can't wait to see the finished product.
Why would you want to give away any of your rights or freedoms? Just because one jack wagon doesn't have an elevator worth Andre 3000 doesn't mean that I should have my privileges taken away.
