The triggers are now made as is the inner part of the grip. I’m happy to have the aluminium parts done. They take twice as long as acrylic to shape and get very hot when using grinding/shaping bits on them, meaning I have to drop them in a bowl of water every so often.
With them out the way I can focus on the grip parts and get the barrel lock and pivot built, then it should be a case of bringing it all together and doing the aesthetics.
I’m planning to build with screws and fixings wherever possible and try to keep the glue to a minimum so the whole thing can be disassembled/reassembled later (in case repairs or modifications are needed).
