Can you Half-block an impulse

I was intrested in taking up an Impulse as a project gun, and well is there a way to halfblock it? Also how do I avoid breaking the gun?
Pics and tips appriciated, looks don't bother me

yea dude, you can half block a impulse, you can cut it off to about a 1/2 inch behind the bolt pin and can mill the rest to look the way you want

Sweet man, thank you.
As far as milling goes, I'll leave that to the experts.

u can dremel it but its easier to use a hacksaw and files. Use the hacksaw to cut it and use sandpaper or files to smoothen it out. You can use the dremel to also smoothen it out.

a dremmel, or hacksaw would be the cheapest, but also would be the hardest and most time consuming, its up to you on what you want to do.

You should post in the imp forum, its the best place to pick up rare parts since imp stuff is only getting harder to find in stores. As far as pics and tips, you would get a TON of that if your brought this to the imp forum

it took me almost 4 hours to half back my imp with a dremel. Id say spend 30 bucks and send it to tony elia unless you value your time at or below minimum wage.
