New Guy
« on: March 31, 2020, 02:34:05 PM »
New from the Florida Panhandle. Have a Norinco and a Chinese/Albanian SKS. Live out in the sticks so I am able to shoot in my backyard. Stay home most of the time and work on my old tractors and old cars. Retired in 2009 and have been living the good life ever since. Haha

Welcome from SW Missouri, Gashog! Glad to have you join us!

Did you do the jeweling on your Bolt Carrier yourself? I'd like to see more close-up pics of that, when you get the chance.

Here is a few more. I did this with a pencil eraser end and valve grinding compound in my milling machine. I made a temporary jig to hold and rotate the bolt carrier.
