Perhaps he meant ghetto in the sense that the gun looks realistic from afar but upon closer inspection you can see how each piece has been meticulously worked and designed to do what it's supposed to do with a rough appearance
I meant something like this, I never really get the meaning of guetto :oops: I thought you were making a gun that looks like one made from a CNC. the gun is very cool I couldn´t do better, I just didn´t like the welds and wood, and I thought you have finished it, but now I know you are still building it.

Nah, ghetto isn't really the right word. It even looks a little too good for post-apocalyptic. It looks sort of like improvised-collectible-antique, like what would have been left over from a zombie apocalypse had it happened back in the Wild West era.

And with that I think I'm going to go make an indy film :D


edit, Looking closely there are only a couple spots that need to be touched up, specifically where handle sleeve is welded to the side plates. About 20 minutes with a round file would make it look much nicer. Also go over 'right-hand' side plate with some progressively finer sandpaper. And you can always replace the patched-up wood later and scrape the paint off the pump arm.

Okay then...no problem.
And yes...I need to touch up some of the spots.

Wich ones should I adress to first?
Apart from what Fnord said..

Oh..and I got some decorated brass beltbuckle that I can reshape to form a top cover.
This will cover the parts that bother me.

I think it looks great right now, and hey, it functions! So +1 for that

Aesthetically though, I think you're going for the literal "sawn off" look where a lever action rifle was literally cut down. In order to achieve this look, I think making the handle actually look like a dismembered grip from a full stock would be the most important addition

I've tried to clean it up as much as I can.
My weldingrods have been out in the shed for too long, I think they soaked up some moisture.

I managed to get the welds looking a bit better and the new decorated parts hide the rest. ( cleaned up those welds as well as I could before covering them)

Hope you like it.
If this isn't up to your standards I'm gonna bondo her up and paint it..
I'll probably do the wood too or replace it all together

yes, the shortcut.
This build has taught me so much.Mostly about what not to do.
I started this thing without any sort of plan and I haven;t measured anything.
I think it turned out to be the best thing I ever made.

But now I'm itching to start a new project..

Brilliant! Don't change anything. You're not trying to please us (which you have done anyhow). If you think it's good, leave it! I love it!

This thing is honestly hard to describe in words.

It is like... THE gun. It's the GOD of our community.

:D

Come to think of it, you must name this god! So I can change my name from Holy Shat to Holy... Whatever this is called! :D

The mark of a true craftsman is knowing when to stop, and I think you've reached that point - it looks great as it is, brilliant work :)

Old Shat and now Holy Shat....
Neh...
:D
How did I go from ghetto to God in a matter of days?? :?

Indeed.
At least I'll give it a rest untill something significant comes to mind.

I´ve asked a befriended carpenter to look out for some noice looking hardwood.
That wood be all I can think of for now.

It is like... THE gun. It's the GOD of our community.


Jack...it seems it´s not just the Dutch that like those joints....
:D
Sober up Freak..

LOL
