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.

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