I was actually thinking about that exact trigger, but put a pivot in the middle of the trigger like a sea saw and an electronic switch on each side so rather than having to reset the trigger I just have to pull the top trigger if that makes sense, or put light springs to keep it from hitting each one.

heck, I could make it a bull pup and do that

Interesting but make sure you do not cross the line of NFA rules for trigger manipulation.
I think the powers that be just baned the old crank trigger operation deal that was very popular.
Best of luck on the project and make sure you are not breaking the rules

last I heard the cranks are not banned, what I am talking about is basically have 2 triggers that will each set off one round, it is just attached to a center pivot in a way that if one is fired, the other cannot fire until the first is released, so it will still only fire once per trigger pull, so there should be any difference. If it could be made as sensitive as some of the paintball triggers, you could easily get more than 10 rounds per second or so

me and a friend took up hydro dipping, doing small things for friends and others to make side $ and its pretty cool to turn a normal gun into something one off!

here is a high point 380 in marble transparent film. Done a 2 tone paint job.


and here is a 270 stock in transparent skull film

My stress relief... I did the heggis spring flip, installed over travel screw and threaded my barrel at the machine shop and made the compensator to fit flush... shoots pretty good

Next project

I love the idea of this, but I have a feeling that no matter how hard you try, if an authority were to look at that gun that you modify they'll find something wrong.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love for this to be done and if you do it post pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

I'm a diehard fan of the ultra concealable Rohrbaugh R9, 9mm. Ultra dependable too. many to choose from, but this is my go-to carry piece.

Sweet gun. I always wanted one, but I carry everyday and at work. I would shed a tear if I put that gun through the abuse I put my keltec through. I routinely have to clean my keltec to keep the rust off. --I work the beach sometimes and do ATV patrol and the sand gets everywhere. I can get 3 Keltecs for the price of one Rohrbaugh.

so, has anyone heard about the .22 TCM? apparently it is a .223 that has been shortened a lot. first time I saw it was in a 1911 format, apparently R made by Rock Island.

I haven't seen them in person, but after reading about them, I am intrigued

If you love the 5.7x28mm but always wanted it in a 1911, the 22 TCM is your answer. You're dealing with the same issues a lot of wildcats face though - limited ammo and brass, limited bullet selection and limited shooting platforms. Life's too short - shoot what you want.

Seems like you could make the brass from .223 if you are a reloader. It sounds like a fun cartridge. Maybe someday I'll manage to get one

Got the barrel, forend, and magizine cap dipped last night. Came out pretty good! This stuff is not easy to work with for sure! I ran out of film so I ordered more to finish up the stock/receiver.

Desert Eagle at work, dwarfing my moderately sized man hands.





Bulk 5.56 that I wasn't allowed to buy.



My newest addition, S&W M&P Shield 40.



Finally was able to find some military grade 00 Buck to go with the Remington Sabot hollow point slugs.

Not sure how that Winchester stuff stacks up to Federal Personal Defense, but I won't ever buy anything else again.

Are you referring to the mil grade buckshot? Is that what he shot in the test?

I didn't have any of the mil buckshot for the test, but I've heard that the grex buffering makes it spread relatively quickly. I was referring to the Federal stuff, which patterns like a laser through my shotgun.

Here is one for ya, I've been picking up range brass and found some odd primer strikes, looks almost like a square it seems like. Any ideas on what guns do this?
