Its not finished yet, but here is what I have. It still needs trigger/seer, polishing and chrome or nickel plating. Perhaps an extension on the finish date? I'm am entering it into multi shot. This is a 5 shot semi-auto 12 gram fed pistol. This is made 100% from scratch except for the velocity adjuster which I borrowed from an autococker. the co2 is located in the grip.

Awesome!! I didn't think we'd be seeing many semi-autos to be honest.

Just official, I'm out.

Have plenty of plans, but couldn't manage the funds. :(

Eager to see what everyone else managed, though!
