Photo of the day... every gun is a one-off so I tend not to do anything in batches. There is certainly nothing wrong with working like that but I have found that the variation, tolerance, and different measurements from gun to gun don’t really allow for any advantage in it. Last week felt like it though with much time spent standing in front of the mill machining 3 weld-up frame and slide fits.

At last, some chips. Jason, you're killing me with the spotlessly clean machine setups. Do you keep a janitor on staff, just to sweep up after every pass? (Just kidding.)
