Looking again,    maybe slide the .38 and .357 in towards center a bit more.    Need a spot for a couple screws to mount it  (see pic of original)

Are those crosshair lines on the gun image actually in the artwork or are they just layout lines in the cad?     Seems like they don't belong.

The lines indicate a surface.
The gun/carriage is one item/surface.
All numbers and letters are separate also.
Makes it easier for me to edit the drawing, such as changing
names or dates.

Going to cut on your mill?     Going to need a really tiny endmill for the detail and those are a real PITA without mega rpm's.     I have been thinking of one of those china air cooled router spindles as a sub spindle for such things,  800 watt (about 1hp) with a vfd is under $200 these days,  24000 rpm max and a er collet,    Pretty small too, about 2-1/2 x6-1/2 round.  Maybe later this year.

Any reason you cant mill these flat and then bend them around the correct diameter pipe?
