I’m definitely improving with Rhino – there’s still a lot of surface optimization to go into the grip area, but I’ll wait for until I’ve printed and validated the current geometry before I refine it further. I’m also looking into stippling for the grip – another hangover from Anschutz I really like.
This is the 2nd grip prototype I’ve made for the P3 stock. The width and angle feel great, I will modify the palm swell and add something of a thumb shelf for the future. The next design prototype needs to feature a (dummy) trigger so I can confirm that the reach is correct.
Dug this guy out again, mostly for fun and some rendering practise.
Finally got my hands on it – now for the tedium of sanding & finishing!
It fits! P1 prototype build is complete. Now for the fun bits; Finishing up the blind magazine so that it’ll feed correctly Final weigh in Stress testing (aka, will it explode?)
Rob at HTC did an AMAZING job! Now to do a bunch of sanding, a bit of dremel-ing, check fitting, seal the inside, stick it together, sand the outside, bed the action, seal the outside….
Machining of the P1 prototype is underway! Superthanks to Rob from High Tech Carving for the WIP photos.
After a lot of mucking around, stalling, being stalled, things are looking positive to get prototypes 1 & 2 built out of Wellington. I’m not doing any further development on the stock until I get P1 back in my hands, as I think at this stage it will be largely pointless as there will be… Continue reading Back to it
Now for the waiting game to build the first prototype and see if this actually works
Bit of experimentation with branding (not really my forte) while I nut out the finer details of the CNC process.
