    Compare. 14 gauge sheet is .078 vs. .075 on the stock upper- this junk I used for the other test wouldn't hold up- or I'm at least not going to be the operator for the test. Will still use it for some further test bends- need to close the radius a just a tad.

    Thanks man. Pretty good for some guy tooling around in the garage- out of raw materials, something! How is your son, snipe? Tell him to push hard at recovery.. his body will let him how much is too much, but you have to push it in order to recover as fully as is possible.

    He's doing good. He's pushing himself, sometimes a bit too far. He is wanting to be walking without assistance by Xmas.
    Thanks for asking about him.

    Okay team here is the first machined part for the upper. The channel piece I have been working on goes right into this beast, behind the magwell. The hole on the rear tab is for the receiver pin. I would have liked the trunnion be part of this but on the first one at least it needs to be separate so it can be orientated properly for measurements. The bolt will have a lower component matching a stock bolt, the upper component rides on top of the part (this will all be one bolt).

    Update- working on a final set of part drawings to hand off to go into Solid Works and 3D print a set of test parts. No eta I wouldn't dare to guess, it's going to take a while but definitely making real progress. This route is really necessary to get it right.
