The Return of GunLab

Yep, I’m very happy to announce that there is some new content coming to GunLab at last! It won’t be from me, but instead from my friend Chuck. He is an SOT, and has a pretty nice shop, with everything from a 4-axis CNC mill to a hydraulic stamping press, and all manner of manual machine tools. Well, he’s working on a very cool project and will be blogging about the process and the various components, problems, solutions, and other elements of interest to gunsmiths, fabricators, and generally-mechanically-geeky people.

Oh, sorry – did I forget to mention what the project is? It’s a batch of reproduction VG1-5 rifles. I’ve been watching the work progress, and it’s very exciting – so if you’re not afraid of steel chips and cutting oil you should head over and check it out! The VG1-5 won’t be the only subject covered either, as I expect he will be posting about various other projects as they pique his interest…
