I've seen that! It is very cool. He cut up a nice gun... I have some very worn out parts and pieces I would have traded him for that. I'm planning to build a cutaway out of my parts. I'm going to do a 1911, too!

Very interesting video.

What a waste of a good gun that just by cutting the barrel down would have made a great Wild Bunch gun.

Thanks JFN for posting this.  Nice to be able to see the relationship of things working together.  Formerly, had to imagine it.

Very informative. Thanks for posting.

Kind of hurt though to watch him cut up a perfectly usable W12. Cut the barrel down in front of the bulge and have fun!

I know it hurts to watch. I wish he had used a worn out one or a 3" duck gun.
I did learn how the safety worked. I occasionally bump it at the load table and it locks up the action. I keep thinking I need to disable it.
