My Half Mini Midget :P
 
So I bought a 2K right hand feed body and was unsure what to do with it. So, it's time for a build.....

I decided to try and do everything, took 3/4" off of the back of the body, mini'd the front end, and half blocked it. I also decided to can the sight rail as it is just useless now. Here are the results so far:

Started with this:

Here it is with the front block retapped and installed after all the machine work:

The body I bought was also missing the feedneck, so I made my own, still needs to be cut to length:

Well after measuring once again I noticed I didn't make a big enough notch in the feedneck tube. So, back to the mill!

New notch:

And the feedneck pressed in and cut to length:

She's complete (minus the benchmark slider coming) and firing. Still have some tuning issues to take care of but otherwise A OK.....

(Barrel is on just for looks, 14" DW)
