Looks great! I was thinking of making the D & E tripod for my R G & G gun.

Roller, that is very nice. I don't see the pivot pins for the legs. Have you found a different way of securing them?

Pivot pins are there as per plans, you can't see them in this photo.

I hadn't planned on building the tripod at first but I realized that the wheeled carriage would be awkward to store and move around. The tripod is quite sturdy and I have used it for all my test firing. I plan on building a wooden crate with compartments to store the gun, tripod, and magazines.

Thats a great idea. A wooden box hadn't crossed my mind but it's the perfect accompaniment.
