they Tony but there Kinda pricy. at £26 but ill defo get them

Ok spent the last few days making the Gun, what a pain in the Arse it was. I also Made the brass bins

The fret the bins were on broke my hear today taking on the backing film, it felt like it was supper glued on, I spent the bones of 40 mins taking off the film then had to clean it with acetone then i sanded them to make sure i got all the glue,

But enough of my Woes :D

Spud I thought the gun was great,a kit all by itself.
You need way less solder my friend, a little goes a long way.

I di not realize these boxes were workable till today and man this were a pain in the ass to to do. they will have padlocks to go on but i may leave them off because they wont be seen.

Tried soldering the first set but i think the head is to big to be accurate
