Barrel is timed. Lightly rolled the flat shoulder trying to get the last fifth of a degree for 'perfection' sake. should have just left the damn thing alone, completely unnecessary.
i know. im kickin myself too.
approximately 2 hours ago, while showing my friend how well my stock was coming along, i knocked it off the table and it hit some corner metal and gouged itself bad. im so fucking mad i wanna cry. i dunno how i'll fix it, given its current oiled state.

Oh also I fixed it. Damage was center frame, that dark crescent. Was a deep gouge before. Turns out epoxy is much more forgiving with improper surface prep than I thought. Was an easy fix.
Sandblasted most external components. Forgot to take before pics. Used actual sand (dangerous) but works in a pinch. Its dirty tho. Adds another step of needing to thoroughly clean the parts after. Pics soon
ok i parked everything i needed except the front handguards, which my fuckin sandblaster started acting up. i think the sand is a little wet? not flowing as well obv.
the stuff i parked has fairly inconsistent finish– at least on the lower receiver. everything else was mostly ok. came out a 1911 grey color, not as dark as i wanted. this things gonna be 2 tone as fuck
pics coming tomorrow once i have the hand guard heat shields finished up

he's arguably one of the most experienced FAL gunsmiths in the country, does incredible work. gunsmithing is a poor mans trade unless you're a preeminent name in the industry with a long waitlist. he's one of those guys
lmaooo he's also a fucking sperg. he started pickin shit with me later in the thread. i wasn't being combative even a little but he went full FUCK YOU NIGGER, 0-100.
frankly, as a talented SPORTSCHAN ENGINEER im way fuckin smarter than this dude. gunsmithing talent or not. his job is a fuckin hobby for me 🤷♀️
