I decided to try to build the RG-G at the suggestion of a friend and co-worker you know as my65pan on this forum . This is my first build of this type of project so I see it as a challenge and a good way to fill time between jobs at the shop . I've been posting all my pictures and progress on facebook for family and friends but was asked to post here by my65pan so here I am . The pictures I've taken are of the barrel plates and carrier block while the parts are on the lathe or mill being worked and are not complete yet , but like I said its keeping me busy between jobs at the shop . I've decided to use 17/4 because I have it on hand and be more durable in the long run , I plan shooting it . . . alot :D

Good Luck to you on this. Double check for RG-G plan changes that are listed on this site.

Glad to see more activity on the site and to see your build. We have been running into a lot of frustration with the plans and the size of some of the parts. There are a lot of very skilled folks on this site and a wealth of information here. My problem is that I remember I read something about this or that but I can't quite remember exactly what it was or where I found it. :?:

Looking forward to following your progress.

Good luck, I've built 4 of them. Check on this forum for mods and errors, the drawings leave a lot to be desired! :mrgreen:

Good luck on your build. I haven't been able to work on mine since Saturday. Got a danged cold. I have all the machine work done except the magazine and its base. Working on the oak part now until I get some brass.

Good Luck,
Don

thanx for the encouragement every one . I decided on a different approach than stacking the barrel plates together with the carrier block and pre drilling them like the plans call for , even a sharp drill will walk to some degree . I have a 10" vert/horz rotary table and a DRO on the Bridgeport and I made a fixture for the 3 parts so as long as I indicate each part in to the fixture holding location shouldn't be a problem . any way , here's some more pics of the lathe work as I got it done .

This is the way I resize my pictures.

1. Open the picture in Windows Paint.
2. Click on Image.
3. Click on Resize.
Horizontal 15%
Vertical 15%
4. Save As: "New name" for your resized drawing.

Hope it works. Don

Now if you want to view an over sized pic - here is what I do.
1st right click
2nd click view pic.
my computer resizes the pic to fit my screen.

Good Luck with your build.
