You guys are killing me. I am doing my best to resist the urge of trying to make a cut'nshoot or a straight pistol. I am nowhere near the level needed to make a gun you can shoot but all these cool pics makes me want to try a dummy one anyway.
But I still do appreciate this of course.
Thanks for sharing.
Watching Bruce's inspirational WIP I decided to try my hand at a double barrel knife combo. It still needs loads of work and finishing.
Today I took it out to test fire. It actually is pretty accurate at 20 feet. Those double 40 caliber barrels pack a punch. Although no misfires I'll
need to put stronger springs to smooth out the action. This began as a piece of half inch steel and I've milled out as much unnecssary steel as possible but it still weighs 4 lbs. Probable works better as a club!
The blade is just rough ground with a light etch, after heat treatment I'll make it pretty. If there is any interest I took some pics of the beginnings. Making knives is certainly so much easier.
Paul, thanks for putting the pictures up here on my cut n shoot thread. Your double barreled folder looks awesome! It's cool you used some of my tricks but your own design and flair. Do you have any progress shots? A peek inside on those cool barrels and locks would be interesting.
