Aluminum Sheridan?

Has anyone ever built an aluminum Sheridan?

I'm thinking about building something like a kpsc but out of aluminum, tbh I'm not sure how I want proceed, but I am curious if it's been done before or if anyone thinks there's a reason why it wouldn't work/be worth it

A Sniper is basically an aluminum Sheridan right? CCM T2 is probably the closest in style, with the tubular construction.

Yup... basically a PGP body kit.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I dont see why it wouldn't work, brass is softer than aluminum, as long as the tube that holds the valve is the same I'd as the stock brass tube and doesnt leak it should work, and I'm sure small bore aluminum tube is easy to find and the feed tube is just a 3/4 tube that's easy, earnt nelsons made of aluminum and the feedtube welded on or are they steel, but I'm just taking an guess, would be cool to see it done though if can be done

If you want to know what kind of aluminum is used on Nelsons/Phantoms, I bet user "HaveBlue" or the new guys running "phantomonline.com" would be able to answer that for you.

Last I heard from Apoc4lypse, he was using 6061-T6 tubing to build the Phantom Dualpheeds.

Targeted Facebook ad. Creepy it found it for me after posting above, but as a huge fan of aluminum, I'm going to share it anyways. Have never used it or know how much it cost, but seems interesting.

Brazing rod that looks like it'll do what your after.

Ooh that is cool.

Yeah, I knew the sniper platform was based on Sheridan, was definitely looking for something like this mercenary or a little more home brew.
