Yeah, it is more of a just for fun project to challenge myself and get practice on the machines. This is one of a few firearm related projects I've been dreaming up this summer.

I think I am already pushing it with firearm parts and do not want to go into making receivers.

As for materials, from what I see 416 stainless is machineable and seems to be what most of the aftermarket slides are made of. Then I would just have to get someone to properly heat treat it when I am done.

I know it won't look too pretty, but just like parents with ugly kids, I'll love it just the same.
