I wish I could say  <dontknow>. I work so much 6 - 7 days a week when I'm off I have the family on top priority. I should have a range report coming soon meanwhile I'll just stay buy more parts for other projects.


Awesome. Curious, how you did the white inlay?

Crossposted from one I made on another site, but the results turned out well, so I'll share -

I like the colored in markings on many firearms - and decided to try the technique.  I took a toothpick and regular Testors model paint and filled in the lettering -


Halfway done here


Fully colored in - you want to make sure you use a light touch, and use enough paint to allow it to flow into the corners of the lettering. 

It's important to have enough paint to fill the letters - you will get some outside the lines, but that's OK.  Now let it dry/cure overnight.


The secret weapon - one of the 'magic eraser' type mildly abrasive sponges, designed to be worked wet.


I used scissors to cut an approximately finger sized piece to work with, ran it under the faucet, and used a polishing type motion to begin removing the excess paint.


Halfway done - the caliber lettering is looking good.


And the finished product.  Although I see one spot I need to touch up.
