Well... thats the right set of tools if you own a VM68!
The VM has an absurd amount of extra metal. The sky is really the limit. Some of us went the "reduce everything possible" route... others have tried to make shapes, or patterns. ie Grooves, slots, lines, etc.
Fortunetly, VMs are common enough that you can usually find old beaters on Ebay for $30-40, and nicer ones for $40-60. The prices stay low because most newer players do not appreciate older guns, especially old blowbacks.
