The machine marks still need to be sanded out (they're very shallow) and I'll be starting on the valve body next. Tried to go for a nice simple and clean mill job on it and I think it's coming along nicely.
And to give you all a taste of where this is going, here's a rough rendering of the project so far, as you can see, the milling on the body changed but the back of the valve body will be threaded for an AR-15 buffer tube and stock. https://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/...ps44014a20.png
For some reason this reminds me of Star Wars/Boba Fett
