    For tinkerers eyes only

    In a few weeks, I'll be showing off my latest, and one of my last guns. I hoped to have the website updated, but that looks like it'll be on hold for a while. Anyway, for those of us who like to mess around with metal, I'm going to exhibit some new ideas and technique that I'm sure will be of interest for some of you.
    Not much is revealed right now, but soon I'll be posting stuff that hasn't been seen before when it comes to gun customization.
    The gun itself has few features that are new, but when it comes together you might see a mod or two that make sense in fine tuning the mag.
    For now, the focus is going to be on laser micro welding, something that will allow me to make a piece look like I've always wanted to. I wish I could do this full time because I have so many different ideas. As it is, it's still just a hobby that I can only devote so much time to, and that's why this is probably the last gun I will show. (I simply don't see the E-Mag ever being completed.)
    I don't care for publicity, I'm sharing this for one reason. My hope is that you guys can find a future use for what is possible. I will get into it more as we go along.
    For now, check it out and let me know what you think. I'll be throwing more at you before the month is out.
    Til then,
    Dan@Triggernomics

    the type of welding you are talking about in the video is amazing stuff.

    i have seen it used on many things.

    Dan that is amazing work there and although I'm sure it will look even better when welded I think it is very cool that the pieces can be taken apart at this point but flow so well when put together with the screws.

    Its sad to hear this is one of the last, to me your guns are like the solar cockers- amazing pieces of art in their own right. Wish I could afford to get my hands on one.

    Oh wait nvrmnd at this point you wouldn't need to take those pc's apart. If the body and valve remain separate than you can still change or adjust the sear, and all of your builds are mechanical right?

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments, but the best is still to come. It's really turning into my personal favorite because of the shape. Once the parts are welded, its going to be perfect. I'm making a big push to finish it now so let's hope it will all work out soon.
    With the rail and grip welded together, there is no problem with exchanging the sear...it plops right out.
    For those who wondered how it gets done, I do have some how to videos in my portfolio where I make a trigger. The process is pretty much the same.
    Alright, back to the workshop...it's going to be a long night.

    Nice work as usual.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.

    Very nice!

    I can imagine all that metal being removed the way you do it... your fingers must be aching.

    Play safe, and please DON'T QUIT...take a vacation.

    It's getting there. I just made another design change that's going to delay things a bit. But I'm sticking with it.
