Yes that was a bit of a fluke, when first fitting the arm thought “ here we go, grief “ but was almost there straight away.
Whole thing is nearly done, fires very well. Will try to work out distance overall, but it’s accurate at 25 metres so far. Has developed a tight spot on the pull, after last tighten up.......so will strip it down again over the weekend.-- attachment is not available ---- attachment is not available --

That receiver looks wildly different from mine. Mine is made from brass(?) and can't keep any paint on it. Is it just the difference in when it was bought? I assume Elpus' is older than mine.

Why do you always carry that umbrella?

Yes this one I have is very old, by airsoft standards. Even Warren said it was a very early one when I asked him a couple of years ago.
I belleive it is brass cast, then machined out to take metal bushings.......... It also looks like it has a hard life, and suffered some neglect, along with previous owner ham fistedness. Waiting for a new rear sight to appear then it's done.

I found that the length of the screws from the trigger guard into the breech have to be just right or you can foul on the cylinder , I've had to shorten them just a tad loads of times on final assembly .
It's looking very nice indeed , hard work paid off in full !

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well

Last pic’s coming up, new rear sight, seeing as old one was knackered, and then off to new owner.-- attachment is not available ---- attachment is not available --
