    No more Dremeling required. Just a few plate substitutions. Hope to get some smooth tiles on there soon...

    Mag release works now:

    The Mk 1 LDR if anyone is interested. The center holes & adjoining clutches require modification to fit:

    Someone else has done it - perhaps before me, albeit it appears they cut a baseplate to do so:

    More heresy: since you have to cut the holes a little closer to the mid-point in order to fit the screws, and cut the bottom of the hole a bit to fit the screw sockets - why not put 2x2 plates under the 4x2 plates, and just cut the holes larger? Well, even better, that will allow us to replace the 4x2 plates w/ 2x2 curved pieces - and drill the holes through the center of the joints of the 2/x2 pieces. Once you've put a 2x2 plate underneath, you can replace it w/ a 2x3 plate up top, which ties the top plates into the larger work. But now the bottom piece, while now curved, is still only held by superglue - and when dropped, will separate from the rest of the grip.

    But now, we're already cutting Legos. (Yes, I'm clearly a heretic @ this point, I'll make up the plurals as I go along.) So why stop at just drilling holes that didn't exist before? What is needed to tie the entire work together is a 2x12 plate running the entire length. But our 3x4 curved tile conflicts with that - and is needed to cover up part of the 1911 magwell. Hmm. What if we cut a 1x4 slot in our 2x12 plate? Then it would fit.

    What if we want to strengthen the grips further? Well, there is almost enough room in the magwell to take a 3x7 plate - you'd have to trim the ends a bit. But you can't buy a 3x7 plate on Bricklink. :) But we can CUT a 4x8 plate to a 3x7 plate. We were gonna trim one of the corners anyway. And we were going to trim the bottom a bit anyway - ooh, we could use a baseplate, couldn't we? We only need a 6x7 baseplate...

    Parts ordered for 3 prototypes of the Mk 2 A. Including a baseplate - took me awhile to find a baseplate that was still in production. As long as the customer is chopping a baseplate, I might as well buy a big one & chop it into smaller pieces for them, and then I can get several kits worth out of a single baseplate.

    Well, BATFE received this today, as part of their Bumpstock Ban regulation comment period:

    If my MOC is declared a machinegun by the government, there could be a slight issue in our joint hobby:

    (From the Federal definition of a machinegun)

    The term shall also include the frame or receiver of any such weapon, any part designed and intended solely and exclusively, or combination of parts designed and intended, for use in converting a weapon into a machinegun, and any combination of parts from which a machinegun can be assembled if such parts are in the possession or under the control of a person.

    I think there are already illegal LEGO assemblies, as Technic bricks have the perfect diameter hole to make air rifle suppressors, so possession of Technic bricks and a .177 air rifle may already be a felony.
