    Looks great from here. I wish I had skillz like that.
    If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Where do you fall?

    Based on some research, I coated my parkerized parts in axle grease and baked them in my garage oven at 350F for an hour. They darkened up and got a little of a green tint to them, so I think it looks decent. I still have a lot to learn about parkerizing I think.

    I finished building this 1919A6, lubed it up, and had a problem free test firing.

    I was feeling creative so I made an adapter to mount an M240 50 round sack on the gun. Something different. I got the M240 nutsack from ebay for $40. I made the mount from random steel around the garage. The sack has a belt holding tab which I shimmed because it isn't needed (the gun has it's belt holding pawl) and I had to bend a piece of flashing around the top edge to keep the belt from getting caught on it.







    Now to sand blast and parkerize the adapter mount.

    Yes, that is the BOOBARU, a 97 Subaru Legacy with jeep wheels, 30" tires, and hacked fenders because why pay some ridiculous money for a side by side for my farm when I have $500 invested in this car all said and done and it has a radio, power windows, heat, etc.
