This is what the barrel looks like now.  It only needs the bluing to protect the carbon steel.  Bruce

Bruce, I have to say I am blown away by the barrel.  I look forward to seeing photos of the finished gun.

As for California, I wouldn't live there, don't know why anyone else does.

Thanks King.  I have the material to blue it but have been holding off because it looks so nice and shiny right now.
 
This 8mm thing is more of a love of the K-98 and the Auto Mag. 
 
I think I am going to use a blackened frame with fully-checkered, brown, polyurethane Pasadena grips.   
 
I will move the Luger style cocking-piece from the carbine onto this gun.  Kind of a fantasy gun.
 
Max is making another Luger style cocking-piece for the carbine, from scratch.
 
Thanks for the interest.....Bruce Stark

I uglyed her up real good.  She looks to be all business now. 
 
 

The rear peep-site I used was from a French "MAS" Model 45 .22 trainer rifle.  The sight is marked out to 150 meters or about 1.5 football fields.  I sweated the rear sight platform off of an old Fluss-Stahl  Krupp-Essen, Model W625, .22 trainer rifle barrel.  The front sight is NOS K-98 Mauser with the grooves for the sight hood.  I copied the design for the "light pipe" front sight.

Cheers

I received another modified cocking piece from Max today.  Couldn't wait to assemble it onto the project gun.  I need to blacken the frame and a couple of other things to finish it, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.  I found some wooden fully checkered grips for it.  I still want to cast some brown fully checkered grips for the gun.

The sights really look great, particularly the rear. Keep the photos coming

As this is the photo section, thought I would post a picture of the #10 gun and the .357 barrel that were shown in the Aristocrat brochure.  Better pix to follow....BS
 
I applied a stainless steel "blackner" but it came out kind of spotty and a dark to a light gray color.  This is a frame I bought years ago from Dan Gibbons.  The grips were made by Fuzzy Farrant.  I won't shoot the gun with these grips on it.  I'm going to make some brown checkered plastic grips for it.  It needs and extended magazine release too.  Here are some piccture of how it looks now. Thanks King.

Thanks for the tip Mark.  I used up an old bottle of Caswell Blackener but forgot about the Voodoo of touching the stainless steel with a piece of carbon steel while applying the blackener.  I just ordered a sample kit ($42) of the Insta-Blak SS-370 Liquid Blackener.  I'll post pictures of how it comes out.
