Beautiful work.

I did something new today... I freak bored a carbon fiber barrel. It turns out the carbon expands radially as it is being bored, so I had to use a slightly larger than normal reamer. Beyond that it was a wonderful material to work. Obviously heat and dust were potential issues, but water worked well for both problems.

Brass Freak compatible and Equation inserts in .670, .680, .678 (on request), and .685 (As I no longer have access to the machine to make certain sizes, I will not be replacing any which go out of stock.)

Still selling brass tubing, with .678 barrel stock now available!

My feedback: MCB - eBay - AO
