cutting out elbows for a handle?

Unread postAuthor: uncomplientspud » Wed Jun 04, 2008 2:22 pm

Hey guys!

having a great time learning from this site.

Anyways, i have an idea for a new handle on an upcoming gun. My idea is it to use a T or 90, from there i would i grind out the inside lip to allow it to slide over the chamber. I could then put a a handle in the top of the T.

Does anyone think this is a do-able idea?

Thanks

Something kind of like this?
Burnt Latke - Pacific Grip

[Not sure if your familiar with this guy, but you might take the time to poke around his site. Defiantly one of the best builders on the planet. Admittedly this grip isn't his best work, but the L3 - awesome!]

Thanks, i looked at the L3 and only have one question. That system for barrel changes, is that a gasket he is using to seal the barrel to the chamber?

I can't imagine it being a seal just because PVC fittings don't sit up against each other like that. So it would be might guess it is purely atheistic.

Since PVC threads are tapered they produce a really tight connection. The only time that is not enough is in a pneumatic where a threaded connection is under prolonged pressure, and without Teflon tape you will get a leaky connection. But as far as combustions are concerned you tighten fittings so they stay together, rather then producing a leak proof connection.
