Delivering the material today. I just emailed off my PO numbers and drawings. I tried to attach the PDF of all the drawings to share, but it wouldn't let me. I don't know how I could share that here. I guess I'd have to make a million pictures. Oh well. Anyway, no going back now!

EDIT: It's later in the day and I dropped everything off. I added the drawings below for those interested. This took a lot of work but I loved every second of it.

I used the file up loader. It looks like if you click the pictures they get bigger. OMG wow, they look amazing when you click, lol.

If it doesn't work, at that point there will be nothing left to do but laugh! Imagine all this work and it doesn't shoot right, lol. I have to admit, that would be damn funny.
Also, look how thick that handle bracket is. I have this issue where I underestimate the rigidity of materials and always overbuild stuff. I imagined that bracket bending and flexing like it was made of rubber, lol. So I went heavy with it. Heavy is good though. This whole thing will weight just over 25lbs. That's kind of heavy, but it has a bi-pod so it's all good.

EDIT: I replaced the imgur links with real files by using the spudfiles file uploader. It's way better. Click those images and they get huge and clear. Wow, nice.

Damn, that's impressive looking even in CAD. I'm looking forward to the IRL version! Go big or go home, eh? :D

Thanks. Hopefully it won't be too long before the parts are ready. I'm anxious to work on it.
