Chamfer those edges, it will make it look finished and not made by an amateur :D

All in good time :)

Anyway, nose plug done, finally got the thread right and the hole centred and cut it to the right dimensions :D Time to get to the body!

Here's the evolution, from first one which was too short with crap threads, then the second one clearly off centre, and finally the current part.

Good job!

You know, you only need a few more penguns, and you may convert this whole serie into a mighty row of cartridges :D

Maudit and Jsr, When you finish the pen gun I have an idea for you. You might actually like it.

There ya go Maudit. Now incorporate a co2 cartridge and firing mech for semi auto, and I have an idea for shells. If you make it use airsoft bbs I have an excellent idea.

Heres my idea though, make the entire thing able to be taken apart, such as a barrel that unscrews into 3-6 small pieces, scope comes off of rails (of course), stock comes off, bipod, handles, make it be able to fit in a brief case. It shouldn't be that hard right?

Idea for the co2 cartridge, have it in the firing handle, and have a blowgun trigger or something.
